Recommends it for: More serious readers of Greek history
This books is written more for an academic audience, rather than a general audience. I'd say go with Tuchman or Ambrose or McCullough for your first foray into history. That said, its pretty interesting if you like getting into detail of certain aspects of Spartan history. Forrest goes into detail about their governmental hierachy rather than focusing on battles and such. More of a political than military history.

Better for beginners than seasoned Spartan readers.
