alexander the great
very informative good reading shows terpermant of person & the way he changes his ideas & his downfall
A truly enjoyable read.
This book is highly accessible, well written, and mindful of the average reader's level of familiarity with the subject, I'd recommend this for anyone with a general interest in the life and accomplishments of Alexander the Great, but would suggest further reading if it sparks some interest.
It felt like I was reliving history as I read it. I just wanted to mention there is a period missing on page 524. It's indicated by the capital T without a period before it. Mr. Abbot did a great job retelling Alexander's story, with vivid detail so you felt like you were really there.
