Nice overview of a huge time period for a refresher of ancient history. Great casual voice for a history book that has to stick generally to political/military history. I liked her placement of references in case I wanted to read up on certain topics she couldn't go in depth on. Good starting point to remind me of periods/places I may want to search out. I'm more interested in her next book but felt that I needed to start at the beginning...

Amy Whoa, I thought you were going for light reading. :-)

Sarah With her writing style it is kinda light, really. I am picking up "Cold Comfort Farm" on Tuesday, though, and that should balance it out.
