Slightly dated, and with a plethora of editorial comments that reveal the political leanings of the author, "In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great" is intended as a companion book to a TV series. As a stand-alone work, however, the book largely works. I would have appreciated more time spent on Alexander's time in Egypt, but that's a personal bias. Overall I thought this book was a nice summary of Alexander's exploits that serves as an interesting alembic on our times.
