Fun easy read on what (despite my casual interest) could potentially be a dry subject. Enjoyed the humour and picked up a few (completely useless) interesting random facts. Worth a read. ( )

Short and amusing refresher "course" on stuff you should already know. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first I thought it would be a boring book about the pros and cons of a classical education when the reality was quite different. It's a very easy and fast read.

The author had a very jovial way of getting the different aspects of what a classical education includes (for example, Greek Mythology etc). She spoke about all the different players in Greek, Roman and modern literature, history, architecture and art, to name a few.

I was always found Greek Mythology, particularly, very interesting. However, Caroline Taggart managed to show me just how incestuous, among other things, the gods of Greek Mythology were. I laughed at their antics as well as finding myself thinking just how weird they all were.

I would definitely recommend others to read this book especially if you want a concise account of classical education that helps to demystify this area of education. ( )

An easy to read, often humorous run through the classical world. Language, myths, history, literature and philosophy are all covered. Obviously nothing is discussed in depth because it's not that kind of book but I still learned quite a bit from this broad sweep. Type of book to dip into now and again. ( )
