Great for hard core history buffs. The historical record is sketchy for much of the covered period and the book is occasionally slow-going with the movement of armies and territorial jockeying for position. The founding of the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt is interesting. But since the very little has been written about the immediate decades of the post-Alexander era, this book definitely makes a significant contribution to filling that gap.
