Format: Hardcover
This biography of Alexander is well written and historically accurate. It is simple to read and understand yet deals with some complex ideas.

My little boy who is six loved this. We read it over several nights and at the end he knew quite a bit about Alexander. MY son and I were able to discuss several points raised by the book and so from that point of view it was good. A real warts and all book about one of history's most controversial heroes.

Unfortunately this took so long to arrive that the school project it was meant for was written and finished before it even arrived.
The book is very basic and my son glanced at it but never even bothered to read it. He is 10 and the book probably caters to a younger age! though the age group it would be good for probably wouldn't be old enough to do a school project!

Despite its colourful illustrations this is a bad book. Why? Because it seeks to catch its readers young and, distorting their future sense of history, subtly instil in their minds what even a half-wit ought to know is a lie. Namely, that Macedonia was not a part of the ancient Greek world but rather a kingdom 'to the north of' Greece, and that Alexander was not Greek but only `Macedonian' as if the two were incompatible. As if, in other words, there were not Macedonian Greeks, as there were Athenian, Spartan and Corinthian Greeks. To call this history is not really possible. It is misinformation. I would therefore advise parents not to buy their children lies at such an early stage. They will have all the time in the world to absorb insidious propaganda once they 've grown up.
