It was here mankind first discovered that the earth was not flat, originated atomic theory, invented geometry, systematized grammar, translated the Old Testament into Greek, built the steam engine, and passed their discoveries on to future generations via the written word. Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Jewish scholars, Greek philosophers, and devout early Christians all play a part in the rise and fall of the city that stood "at the conjunction of the whole world." Compulsively readable and sparkling with fresh insights into science, philosophy, culture, and invention, this is an irresistible, eye-opening delight.
Sparkling with insights, this is the story of the city of Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great and a great marvel of its age. Unabridged. 2 MP3 CDs.

This book was great- It was not boring at all- very informative & I would recomend this if you are trying to get a understanding of Alexander the Great, Persians- Romans etc.
