  • Reading Wisdom of the Ancients is like putting on the finest headphones ever made. Here, cutting out the background noise of a society fevered by consumption and a book that really makes you think and offers up the excitement of discovering things that when you read them make you fizz like understanding a foreign language you never realised you knew. This book is the equivalent of diving into a cool sea on a baking hot day, you emerge smiley and refreshed. I wish I had written this.

  • Neil Oliver writes beautifully - bringing the past to life and letting us see ourselves in a new light.

  • A fascinating fact-laden expedition through the ages. Oliver's erudition shines off every page.
