Hard Work Brings Rewards,
This review is from: Alexander the Great (Paperback)
This is not an easy read as other reviewers have noted. It's "old school" history writing and may prove too much for those more accustomed to the more informal style of narrative history books which have appeared in recent years. It's also let down by some of the poorest typesetting I have ever seen in a book and the quality of its maps, at least one of which is almost illegible in parts.
Those qualms aside, it does reward the persistent reader with a thorough and detailed account of a fascinating character and period in time.
