I want to thank each of the readers for tackling this great book over the last six months. If they are like me, reading it has changed the way they see and think. 

And I want to thank Andre for his work as the moderator. He really cares about creating a good experience for the readers and his efforts deserve our applause.

  1. <p>Dear Bob,<br><br>Herodotus and Thucydides created and established the craft, discipline, and art of recording and writing history., You are now the leading scholar for these two masters of the craft. Your devotion to the answers they gave, the questions they left, and the geopolitical context they knew, provides me and other members of The Reading Odyssey with an intensely rewarding, relevant, and challenging intellectual experience.<br><br>With gratitude,</p><p>Cathryn Cranston</p>
