This book is all the Plato a body could desire in one volume. The presentation of the editor does not take away from the Plato. The summaries add relevance and help the modern reader to understand an ancient perspective. The type is easy to follow, and the paper has enough weight to prevent the text on the reverse from bleeding through. The binding is enough to hold it nicely together without being fancy. I needed this book.
