I did not find the book useful for this purpose
on 17 September 2017
Posting the review about halfway through the book. My reason for buying it was that my daughter is studying Ancient Greece at school & I wanted an introduction to help her with homework etc., I did not find the book useful for this purpose. The writing style is convoluted and difficult to read. The approach (covering the period by looking at cities) sounds original and interesting but in practice I do not think it works and a thematic approach would probably have been better. So, disappointing.
