Informative account of Classical Greece,
This review is from: The Penguin History of Greece (Paperback)
This book is gem. It has a wealth of information crammed into a small paperback. At times it seemed like almost too much information to process. It is a book I go back to and reread parts of it. Well researched and the author does not waste his words. I particularly liked reading about the accounts of Socrates and Plato and some inspiring quotes from others such as Xenophanes. For those more interested in military and political history there is no shortage of that.
