The Title is spot on,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Classical Education: The Stuff You Wish You'd Been Taught At School (Kindle Edition)
I have just reached my 65th birthday and on a whim selected this book hoping to fill in a few gaps in my education.
Turned out to be a great decision. The style in which the book is written brings life and humour to a subject which can be very daunting. I particularly liked the way in which the author brought together the characters in Greek and Roman mythology in an easy and understandable way. I often finished reading a paragraph feeling better informed but also with a smile on my face.
How many Authors of books on Classics can claim to have achieved this? Not many I would guess
