really liked it

I love these books. Although the prose is a bit dense , these are wonderful biographies on influential men in ancient Greece and Rome. My personal favorite is the biography of Solon, a wise man who was one of Greece's first law givers. He was hugely influential on our own founding fathers as well (as well as Lincoln and Churchill I think). Plutarch was the author most usually found next to the Bible during the 18th and 19th centuries in what would become America. Highly recommended.
