This review is from: The Presocratic Philosophers: A Critical History with a Selection of Texts (Paperback)
It's almost uneccessary to review this book: If you are at all interested in Presocratic philosophy, this book is a neccessity, and chances are very good you've already had it recommended by someone (your mentor, professor etc). This volume provides, next to Diels-Kranz: Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker, the foundation of Presocratic studies.
As the blurb on the book says, this volume, after initial publication in 1957 "quickly established itself as the standard work on the subject for the English-speaking reader". Which sums it up pretty well.

I think people should see the comments on Kirk and Raven, and the editing of this book. I am not encouraged to buy this.
