The authors have assembled a competent, traditional overview of Presocratic philosophers. Its coverage of the circumstances of the times I thought was especially good for a review notes publication, though it does ignore more recent research (such as that concerning Thales' prediction of an eclipse). Its list of important terms could be expanded, but was adequate. Where it does fall down, however, is in the same area many ebooks fail: the proofreading. A messed up word here and there is annoying, but not fatal. What is serious, and the reason I give it only two stars, is that it misidentified a philosopher several times. In six places it used the name Anaxagoras when it clearly should have stated Anaximander. This, I thought, was inexcusable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
