Reviews

"A highly entertaining bluffer's guide to Greek culture, philosophy and politics." The Sunday Times "Higgins delivers digestible precis and peppy plot summaries... the appendices would make fine stocking-fillers in their own right - A love letter to ancient Greece" The Telegraph "With a marvellous display of knowledgeable enthusiasm and a keen talent for compression, (Higgins) shows just precisely why the Greeks matter" The Guardian "Higgins takes on classical Greek, covering politics, barbarians, love, epic and ethics, all done with panache and sly wit." Scotland on Sunday "It's All Greek to Me is so readable, with a directness and clarity that's enormously engaging. Every generation needs to rediscover the Greeks..." Philip Pullman
