Not a bad little book. It is very short and is easy to get through in a few hours. Anyone who already knows something about Aristotle and his ideas will not find anything new to discover. But it is a good book for someone just starting to learn about the ancient Greek thinker.

A simple way to make a this kind of subject accessible. All of Aristotle's extant works are basically lecture notes. This book give him a face, so to speak.
Rob Brantseg
A fun overview of Aristotle on a variety of subjects.
