3.0 out of 5 stars FIRST REVIEW April 25 2011
By Boo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Something I did like about the book was that it offered maps.
Unfortunatley, while Kindle did recognize the underlined links, it was incapable of launching any of them.
Kindle Customer service was quick to put this down to misgivings of the book/publisher and not the Kindle.
Apparently they were able to duplicate the problem but unable to do anything about it and therefore they did offer my money back.
As they recognized, this was something of a moot offerring as this was a free book, but it did give me pause about Kindle's ability to launch links in any book...

This book is primarily for someone who knows little or nothing about Alexander the Great.
It would appear to be little more than an expanded outline.
If all you are interested in is a very topical and simple look at Alexander the Great's life this short book would be a good choice for you.
I suspect that very topical and simple looks are the way of any title in the "Makers of History" series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and easy reader, but maps are missing in Kindle version Aug. 7 2010
By J. Verbeek - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting book about Alexander's life. The book is an 'easy reader' and doesn't go too much into details, but a good overview of history. Although I enjoyed the book, the reason for giving it 3 stars is that the illustrations and maps are missing in the Kindle version. Maps are a must if you like to 'picture' the route Alexander took during his conquests.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best April 9 2013
By Delph - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very limited biography, with little detail especially in regard to matters military and political. It might have served as an introductory text for someone wishing to to learn of Alexander's life.except for the opinions the author shoves down the reader's throat. Since this is an older book, those opinions are not merely dated, but at times, offensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for young people Oct. 7 2013
By randy ward - Published on

I am reading the book now and it is such a pleasure to read history without the "modern" spin on it. The writting is of such quality that any high school student would get a bit of good education by reading the book.
If you think people are getting smarter, then read this book; I think not.
