This book is a great blend of scholarship and sheer FUN!!

I'm old enough to have had a classical education (even though I'm a scientist). When I was being educated (aeons ago!!), seven years of Latin, and an A'level in Ancient History - with the disciplines of logic, rhetoric and grammar thrown in for good measure - were rites of passage for many of us (remember, there was no IT to eat away at the timetable back then). So whilst I might not learn much that's new to me with this delightful little volume, my off-spring (and theirs) certainly will, and in highly-digestible chunks that make acquiring the knowledge that underpins our whole Western worldview FUN! Once again, Caroline Taggart has achieved a real tour de force. As you will have gathered, I highly recommend this little book as a reference tool that the reader will dip into over and over again! Order and enjoy! :-)
