This book is still an excellent book, but it is a revised edition to the original and this is NOT CLEAR from the information on the product. Several chapters on famous men in church history have been removed from the compilation in this edition. It is missing chapters on "Two Monks: Benedict and Gregory", "Gregory VII and Henry IV", and "St. Francis and St. Dominic". It is also missing the original preface, although this is just an explanation of the author's philosophy of history education and not vital to the content of the book. I wish I had known before ordering that certain chapters had been removed.

We've been using this book for our homeschool lessons. It has great info, but doesn't overwhelm my first & third grader with tons of detail. The kindle version is more difficult to use than the physical book bc the chapters aren't clearly separated. Your can't got to a specific chapter. You have to flip through page by page to find the chapter you want. That's pretty annoying when you are trying to keep young kids focused...

I read aloud a chapter or two each day from "Famous Men of the Middle Ages" to my homeschooled child as she was learning about the Middle Ages. It was a good suppliment to the curriculum. Written in story form, each chapter is only a few pages long, and gives an account of a person in history. This format gives more detail and is a bit more interesting than just reading a text book. Upon the completion of the Middle Ages unit study, my daughter took a 50 question test and remarked on several occasions, "Oh I remember, we read about that!" Due to that response I am looking to purchase something similar for the study of the Renaissance.

Just a heads-up...This is NOT Greenleaf's Famous Men of the Middle Ages! It is a workbook that goes along with that title. Somehow I missed that and ended up with the workbook, when what I wanted was the reading guide.

That said, it looks like it could be a good reference, especially if you are building your own curriculum. For each section it has subcategories titled, Other Resources, Vocabulary, People and Places and For Discussion. We use TruthQuest History, so I think it will be redundant for us.
