Everything I said of Dorothy Mills' book on the Romans applies here. This is how history should be written--and has not been written since political "correctness" made history a dull, pointless affair which neither edifies, instructs, nor informs. If you want to read a historian who is both enjoyable to read and not afraid to praise Western Civilization, read Dorothy Mills.

This has been my favorite book on ancient Greece ever. I have enjoyed many books in the past on this subject including Edith Hamilton's great books but this Dorothy Mills book made me feel that if all I did was study the Greeks for the rest of my life, I would not have wasted my time. Truth, beauty and goodness, oh, my!
This is a very good book if you are interested in the Greek culture or Greek history. You learn about Alexander the Great, the Great Persian Invasion, the Greek Olympics and you can learn about an Athenian man's day. I can't wait to read Dorothy Mills' next book about the Romans.!!
I could hardly put this book down. The writing was very engaging and the information was presented logically, making it easy to follow. A great overview of Ancient Greece for middle-schooler to adult.

I picked this book up at the Minneapolis Public Library book sale. It tells about daily lives of the ancient greeks. Quite interesting if you like that kind of nerdy stuff.
