While the book is very well researched and presents all the usual classical sources, I found it a little disappointing as i expected much more about Carthage pre-conflict with Rome; that part is good but seemed a bit skimpy; the Rome part is very well presented in tons of books and here the book falls a little down being even more summary than in the first part.

Overall I suggest to read the much better Punic war books out there as they present enough of the early history of Carthage anyway and this book adds only a little to that part, while being completely inadequate on the Rome part
