A great gift for a grad

by NMS47 on May 9, 2008

This gem of a book has inspired me to write my first review. The mix of history, cogent observation and just plain good writing makes this a treat for any serious reader, but I was particularly struck by how instructional and thought-provoking this would be for any young person looking for direction for his or her future. It encourages a wider world view which is sorely needed these days. If the author's first six books are as good as this one then I have a wonderful summer's reading ahead. (Kudos to the translator are also in order.).

"Travels With Herodotus" is an excellent book - history and travel by an author who writes beautifully. Highly recommended.
