    Allow me to say up front, I found myself interested in digging in to the rather romantic notion of Spartans and their culture, as depicted in the movie 300 I wanted to learn , so I started looking for books on the subject This book seemed to be interesting and the reviews led me to believe it was a good start Simply put, it is an alright start Truth be told, I believe I have learned than I knew but I am not sure that I have learned alot and I find myself suspicious as to how accurate the information is Why Because the book seems to be so poorly written and edited.It starts off by thanking you for buying the electronic book Was the publisher so lazy as to not look at such details, prior to producing a hard copy The editing is very poor for a published piece of work, with words missing and words being used in the wrong tense The book flows, not so much as a book with varying ideas, as it does a document of point forms being expressed with paragraphs rather than bullets Overall, it just comes across as a hastily and poorly prepared piece of work and that causes me to ask how well the content was actually researched It just looks and reads like a very amateur project.My first impression of utter surprise and disappointment, based on the slightly better than comprehensive pamphlet size of the book, turned out to be very close to the final impression.Do I hate this book No Did I learn anything Yes Do I feel it is worth the asking price No.Basically, it taught me than I knew if the information is accurate but it is a rathwr disappointing read and that is really unfortunate because I was REALLY looking forward to digging into this one.

    Extreme version of the slave system endemic in the Ancient World.

    This book wasn t as dry as some of his others and I actually enjoyed it It also gave facts on the battles the Greeks and Spartans fought against the Persians, not really enhancing them There were definitely some facts about Spartan women that I didn t know They were nearly as much warriors as the men Too bad the Spartans treated their Helots so badly and that they enforced that only original families could become warriors It bit them in the butt Overall, a good read and I recommend it for those who are interested in finding out about the Spartans and Greeks of that period.

    This book gives a good overall history of the Spartans, but it was hard to read because the grammatical errors made you have to read things twice, in order to understand the context.
