" Good overview of Greece. I would have liked something to go along with this to beef it up just a bit. Next time I will make a timeline and use a map!! I kept getting confused on who did what and when. " said.

"Short and sweet. I listened to the free audiobook version of this available from Librivox.org on my Android phone. I chose this particular book based on the title alone, and so had no idea what to expect really. This is more geared towards people who nothing about ancient Greece and are interested in learning. Probably meant for young adults as well. It was entertaining and informative as a primer, but I can't say that I personally learned anything new from it. Still, worth listening to for anyone of any age just stepping into a study of the classical world." said.

"This was our read-aloud text for the Greek section of our history studies this year. Honestly, the kids found it very engaging. I loved that there were so many VERY little known people mentioned and talked about. There were also the 'important' ones, but there wasn't to focus solely on them. Instead, they talked about the people that helped set up the 'important' ones (such as Aristotle, Socrates, Philip of Macedonia and Alexander the Great). It was quite enjoyable and I know the kids learned a lot. The only thing that would make it better would have been just a touch more indepth detail, but that would have been just for myself. For my kids (ages 5-11), this was the perfect dose." said.

"Although written for ages 9 through 14 at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, I found this book highly informative as a survey of all the various events and personalities that shaped Ancient Greece and a great deal of Western civilization; from its mythology to its philosophers and leaders, Haaren provides very readable stories, and I found that I had developed better knowledge and awareness from reading it-- and humbled from it--which actually is a good thing because this is only a series of historical ages and profound influential civilizations--which means I'll read more. " said.

" It was fun to read about the Greek gods. The one person that really stands out the most to me was Aristotle. He had such an interesting look on life and death. " said.
