It is an excellent general introduction to the Greeks that is funny, lively, and never takes itself too seriously. From the first line of the introduction it was clearly not going to be like any other book on the classics I had ever read. It is funny, factual - I loved the bit about Parson's Pleasure -,engaging, thoroughly entertaining and very informative.

I purchased the book to prepare myself for a degree in cultural and literary studies. The book is excellent as a beginners book. The only problem is that it is too small for the range it covers. The informations are short and almost encyclopedic. If you already know something, and still look for a book to help you understand theory, get separate books for every kind of theory (. get a book on post-structuralism, book on postmodernism et. PS. The book itself was poorly made.
