Something I did like about the book was that it offered maps.
Unfortunatley, while Kindle did recognize the underlined links, it was incapable of launching any of them.
Kindle Customer service was quick to put this down to misgivings of the book/publisher and not the Kindle.
Apparently they were able to duplicate the problem but unable to do anything about it and therefore they did offer my money back.
As they recognized, this was something of a moot offerring as this was a free book, but it did give me pause about Kindle's ability to launch links in any book...

This book is primarily for someone who knows little or nothing about Alexander the Great.
It would appear to be little more than an expanded outline.
If all you are interested in is a very topical and simple look at Alexander the Great's life this short book would be a good choice for you.
I suspect that very topical and simple looks are the way of any title in the "Makers of History" series.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Interesting and easy reader, but maps are missing in Kindle version 7 de agosto de 2010

Interesting book about Alexander's life. The book is an 'easy reader' and doesn't go too much into details, but a good overview of history. Although I enjoyed the book, the reason for giving it 3 stars is that the illustrations and maps are missing in the Kindle version. Maps are a must if you like to 'picture' the route Alexander took during his conquests.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas History Beautifully Written 21 de abril de 2013
Por R. Proulx - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada por Amazon
This is part of an exceptional series of biographies from the wonderful school of historians of the mid-nineteenth century, in this case by the brothers John and Jacob Abbott. I hope that I will be forgiven for posting this review at various titles I have read.

I would like to quote Abraham Lincoln's letter to the brothers, for it is incredibly powerful.

"I want to thank you and your brother for Abbott's series of Histories. I have not education enough to appreciate the profound works of voluminous historians, and if I had, I have no time to read them. But your series of Histories gives me, in brief compass, just that knowledge of past men and events which I need. I have read them with the greatest interest. To them I am indebted for about all the historical knowledge I have."

Some may be put off by the oftentimes long background stories, which can get somewhat tangential to the subject. Jacob especially seems prone to this. However, I find the Abbott's bios fascinating even when they get carried away and wander a bit too far from home. As a true history lover, it is hard to loose me.

As for judgments and opinions, yes, the Brothers Abbott give them freely and without reservation. While some will no doubt consider their views dated, please keep in mind that these books were written practically two centuries ago, when people thought very differently. In most cases, however, I find their ideas to be timeless, and in this sense, quite refreshing. If only today's historians could write so passionately and sensitively.

This is a very limited biography, with little detail especially in regard to matters military and political. It might have served as an introductory text for someone wishing to to learn of Alexander's life.except for the opinions the author shoves down the reader's throat. Since this is an older book, those opinions are not merely dated, but at times, offensive.
