This work, as I said, is arranged as a thematic overview. For short sketches of individual Fathers and Doctors and their thought, I would also recommend Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI's "portrait gallery of the Church" series of General Audience catecheses, which are available open-source on the Holy See's website as well as in print: The Fathers, The Fathers, Vol. II, and Doctors of the Church. I will also note that the standard, if dated, 38-volume patristics set, Ante-Nicene, Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, is available very inexpensively for Kindle: The Complete Ante-Nicene & Nicene and Post-Nicene Church Fathers Collection.
