This book is scholarly, no doubt about that. But having every source listed in every sentence is off putting. It felt often like reading a scientific paper. I definitely did not enjoy it, and ok, maybe one is not supposed to "like" nonfiction academic books, some researchers manage to make that happen. I would prefer to read Peter Green or Robin Lane Fox.

A good introduction, but the curious reader should pursue any interesting source materials to their logical conclusions. The study of history begins, not ends, in this book.
