Review:

Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them...I find them hard to stop reading. (Richard Bernstein The New York Times )

Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise. (Jim Holt The Wall Street Journal )

Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character...I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization. (Katherine A. Powers The Boston Globe )

A godsend in this era of the short attention span. (Daryl Royster Alexander The New York Times )
