it was amazing
Read in December, 2004

I had never read this incredible book, even though I have long been a history buff. I got the idea after I went to a parent's day class session at Carleton College in Minnesota and the Prof did I lecture on Thucydides and I was hooked. I listened to the original on audiobooks and cross checked my reactions with "The Landmark Thucydides", which has lots of supplementary material. It is an incredible book, filled with lots of history, strategy, politics, and political philosophy. Given the huge importance of this book, I should not be surprised. It is a book that educated people should read and think about.
