But that's actually the beauty of this book. Not only will you find out lots about Alexander, you'll find yourself wanting Renault's Alexander to be the real Alexander: at least, you will if you're like me. It's a wonderful book. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Having said that, this is a very enjoyable & well written book & was actually one of the first books I ever read on the subject.
If you want an in depth serious look at Alexander & his times then it is probably best to avoid this book, but as an introduction to the subject I can recommend it unreservedly.
