    A decent short intro to the ancient seven wonders. The seven chapters are written by six different authors, so as is usual in such compendiums, the writing style varies quite a bit from tediously academic to very engaging for the non-specialist. Nicely illustrated with photos, maps, temple plans, etc as well as some of the fanciful "reconstructed" drawings and prints by Romantic era European travelers which make for a nice contrast. The bibliography looks like a good reference for further readin [...]

    The Seven Wonders is a great book to introduce anyone to the wonders of the ancient world. I have always been fascinated with history and the technologies of the ancients. This book brings together true architectural wonders. Each of the seven is given its own chapter to fully describe the structure and its history. I was shocked to read that the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was found over 1,800 years after its construction in fairly good shape but was destroyed on purpose! Another oddity was that [...]

    A good, mostly readable review of the seven wornders of the ancient world. With an introduction about how the seven were likely chosen and then a chapter devoted to each "wonder," the book is a quick read. All of the chapters were enjoyable except the one on the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, which assumed that readers had a lot of knowledge of classic history, and because I don't have a lot of that knowledge, it was tough for me to follow.

    Fortuitously, just after having been asked to review Stephanie Dalley's The Mystery of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (Oxford, 2013), I came upon this title at a used bookstore in Evanston. Since Dalley's thesis is that the gardens weren't in Babylon and since this book works from the assumption that they were, I thought that reading it might give me some perspective as I'm not an expert on the Assyrian or Babylonian cultures.Although this book is geared for a lay public and skirts many of the c [...]

    I've always been fascinated by the Seven Wonders & this little book gives you a great deal of information about each one. Great reconstructions (since all but one are gone) so you can envision what the Colussus of Rhodes or the great statue of Zeus really looked like. A very informative little history!

    I love this book. This is the second time I've read it and it just makes me want to go out and do more research on the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. It also makes me itch to travel to see the ones that are still in exsistence in some form.

    I always wanted to know more. I don't know if I wanted as much info as it goes into but I learned things I didn't know before and that IS the point.

    Great book with lots of information and excellent sense of time. It quotes original writers rather then giving an overview. It would be 5 star if it had pictures to match.

    A readable description of the seven wonders of the ancient world. This book is pure narrative history which is just fine from time to time.

    Sarah -
    A bit outdated having first been published in 1988, but interesting nonetheless - the Wonders, I mean. The writing was dry so that made it sometimes difficult to continue.

    Chris
    Very interesting. I knew the wonders, but didn't have an understanding of the story behind themis book is a quick read.

    I knew most of what they said, from the other books I've read.
