Allan Bloom is one of today's most recognized scholors of Plato, the physical version of this book used in college history and political science courses on both the undergraduate and upper division levels today / This electronic version isnt as good for the numerous typos that abound, but the text isn't as unreadable as some would claim / Allan Bloom's translation and analysis is a good book to have in your library, but go for a physical copy if you can / Overall this version is good despite the typos with the text remaining legible and understandable if one's eyes are not lazy readers; and considering this is Plato, no one should be lazy or pick this up for casual reading

There are countless mispellings, so much to the point that some sections are nearly impossible to read or even figure out what is supposed to be being said there. I would really love it if barnes & nobles would take care of this problem because although i am really enjoying & being inspired by this book, im fearful that im missing out on a lot of enlightenment & learning possibilities from the parts that are unreadable due to errors & misspellings.

This is definately one of the worst books I have ever read. The story doesn't make much sense at all, and each chapter (called books) is about 50 pages, but could be summed up in about 3. It is very boring to read. I would not recommend this book to anyone!
