Famous Men of Greece - John Haaren. These were the laws about debts. If a man borrowed money and could not pay it back at the right time, the man who lent the money might take the borrower's house and farm and might even sell him and his wife and children as slaves. On most of the farms near Athens stone pillars were set up, each of which told that the land on which it stood was mortgaged, or pledged, for a debt.

I have an earlier edition of this book, which I think is great. I ordered a second copy here recently, and there's a major, major publishing error in this edition. No numbers are included in the book! For instance, it will say something like, "Pericles lived from ___ to ___ B.C." Or "Sparta was able to marshall ____ fighting men, but Athens could recruit only ____. There are no Arabic numerals anywhere in the book though numbers that are spelled out do appear. So, somehow it went to press without the numbers being inserted. Don't buy it.

Looks like this is a new Kindle edition of an older work. 3,335 locations.

The title misled me a bit, as I expected only historical people. Almost half of the book talks about gods and legends. Great stuff, just not what I was expecting. The rest gives mini-biographies on historical Greeks and Macedonians.

Got this while it was free. A fun, informative read, so easy to recommend. The Greek Gods are given their Roman names in this work.

My daughter is using this book for Greek studies along with the workbook from Memoria Press. She is using the eBook version of this book. Her biggest frustration has been the fact that it mixes up the Roman and Greek names for the gods. That makes this a very poor primary text. D'Aulaire's book is far superior at least for the Greek gods portion for the same audience.

This was a great introduction to Ancient Greece, not only for children, but for adults who missed out on a classical education. It introduces Gods and Goddesses, as well as talking about the famous heroes and leaders of that former nation. A good resource to help the adult understand references in literature and elsewhere to these individuals who have had influence on our own stories and government.

I am a homeschooling mom who is introducing Greek and Roman history to my children. Haaren's writing is good, but it is mere text. The edition put out by Memoria Press has beautiful illustrations which makes it much more effective with young ones.

This is an adequate treatise on famous individuals from Ancient Greece, though it is definitely written with a younger audience in mind. The information is simplified, the chapters brief, and the content overall reads like a glorified textbook. Nevertheless, I recommend this book if you know nothing about Greek History or Mythology and would like to learn, or if you would like a different presentation of otherwise oft-told tales and accounts. There is not much special about this book, to be honest, so I can't really complain or compliment the work to any significant degree. There were some formatting and typographical errors, but nothing too big or inhibitory. The best summary of this piece of literature, I think, is that it's a bit bland and basically retells known stories and biographies in a less detailed manner. I wouldn't pay for this book, but since it was free for me, I gave it a shot. Maybe that says enough for itself.
I found the book to be informative, however, I am not impressed with the style of writing. It does not have a nice flow to it. In some instances, it is choppy and unclear. Also, being that this is a book on ancient Greece, the author should have consistently used the Greek God's names and not the Roman. I did not like having to change the names myself and improve upon the writing style as I read aloud to my children. But, over all it is a decent book; and I do recommend it along with the student guide and teacher guide to "Famous Men of Greece."
