Review quote

"Accessible and punchy... a wide readership cannot fail to be entertained as well as instructed about a world that is both familiar and alien, modern as well as ancient." -Paul Cartledge, author of "Thermopylae" "It's admirable of Michael Scott to shine a light on the forgotten 4th century, and he's engaging about the culture that bloomed as Athens faded." -"The Daily Mail"
