Personal Opinion: This book is very good and interesting because with it you can learn a lot of history of Macedonia and of Alexander. It also shows the life on this period of time. In summary, a great book for history lovers but for those who don’t like history I wouldn't recommend it. Aitor Salesa Rubira, CS1B
