Oldie, but still a classic

by John W on Dec 26, 2013

This book was written about 2500 years ago,and is probably the first real book of reasonably objective history. It's not perfect,but that could as well be said of the Wright brothers "Flyer". I also bought a DVD series of lectures from the Teaching Company on Herodotus that filled in a lot of things that the author left unspoken,because he was an ancient Greek writing for an ancient Greek readership. The lectures showed why actions that seem strange in our frame of reference often made perfect sense in theirs. If you can,I really urge you to do both,as each fills in and illuminates the other.
