After starting with "Alexander and Zoe" and realizing that the book was very readable, I went on to read "Leo the Wise" and "Romanus Lecapenus" by the same author. I was very impressed to find the areas that overlapped were handled very well without resorting to any kind of "copy and paste." (Which is more than I'm doing, actually - I freely confess that my reviews of all three books are very, very similar.
I have seen a couple of typos but I honestly don't remember at this point where they are; the only one that really stuck out was a reference to "the steaks were higher." They aren't frequent enough to be annoying or distracting; I didn't highlight any of them, which is what I do when errors are a) frequent, b) egregious, or c) both.
All in all, fascinating books - long enough to make you feel like you read something, short enough not to leave you yawning. They give a satisfying glimpse of the subject to the casual reader without overwhelming with details or boring with dry data. I liked the illustrations, as well, although unfortunately on an e-ink Kindle, they just aren't all that impressive.
I love history and this author reminds me of why.
