It's no myth: this lively refresher course fills in all you need to know about ancient studies-from Zeus's throne to the fall of Rome-in pithy little quips. It covers the impressive advances made by Greek and Roman societies, from language to medicine, from art to architecture. You'll learn:"A fun resource. It's published by Reader's Digest and has that 'user friendly' feel that I expect from the books they choose to publish. Caroline Taggart explains things in a clear and interesting way that makes it all relevant to today. I wish she had been around when I was in school-would have been more enjoyable than memorizing dry facts and I probably would have remembered more of the details. Serious subjects are presented in a fun and entertaining way." -Sweeps for Bloggers (Blog)
A fascinating introduction to the world that became the foundation for Western Civilization, The Classics puts the same information from stuffy textbooks at your fingertips in one entertaining read.

Whether you need homework help or want to win that trivia game, this series is the trusted source for fun facts.
"Overall, I thought this was a great way to learn (or re-learn) a bit of our ancient history and heritage, while keeping it lighthearted and informative! Recommended!" -The Loud Librarian (Blog)
