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.
