Reviews

Like everything else Jones writes, Eureka! is packed with intriguing nuggets for novices and experts alike... He flits between the beautiful and the banal, never missing a good story, whether it is about glorious death or industrious donkeys. -- Natalie Haynes * The Times *

I love the fact that a book like this exists: populist and inclusive in intention, cultured in execution, and often cheerfully abstruse in content... Jones is a storyteller at heart, unashamed to entertain while educating by stealth, as all the best teachers do.

* Spectator *
Entertaining... a meze of Hellenic civilization in 500 bite-sized portions * Daily Telegraph *
An entertaining and informative read that will be enjoyed by dusty scholars, bright-eyed Classics newbies and general readers alike. A sheer joy of a book. * The Lady *
