This latest book follows the excellent pattern of having everything you need to help you read Homer all in one volume but there is now a slightly new style with 10 lines of Greek on a page with vocabulary and helpful notes underneath. I have found this to be an even better arrangement, as the text is thus broken up into smaller chunks.
The vocabulary always includes the frequency with which a word occurs and the notes give just enough help to make reading easier. There are some pages on scansion at the start and synopses of verbs at the end.
The typeface is clear and the book very pleasant to handle. It is also extremely good value. It is 'printed on demand' but this did not delay delivery at all. This is a really terrific series of books and anyone trying to read Homer will make great progress with these.

Steadman is to Greek texts what Achilles is to combat. Let us only hope that Steadman, unlike Achilles does not die young, and continues to produce these wonderful volumes.
I'm sure there is a reason for the detailed vocabulary lists detailing the frequency of the individual items of vocabulary but as our short term memories fade with age we would also really like a traditional vocabulary at the end of the book or as a fold out (cf Pharr's Vergil) which would be accessible in those (unfortunately many ) occasions when we can't recall the translation of a word we know we have seen before somewhere in the text!
Any reader of these books of the Iliad of Homer will this a must purchase - especially at such an accessible price.
