Review by: F. Philips, Vanderbilt University - September 30, 2005
Our brevity is indicative of our high praise for the quality and usefulness of your commentary-it is splendid and sanely done and excellently met the needs of my students (whose abilities, by the way, ranged from brilliant to nearly hopeless). As a matter of fact, they quit reading the notes of Dyer and Seymour at all, thereby missing what few useful notes there are in that old text. I see no need at all to continue using Dyer and Seymour-Helm’s work may in some ways be less ambitious, but it is far superior to its predecessor.

I’ve found it very helpful . . . makes teaching a lot easier. Students have been generally favorable. I’m glad you’re already running to a 2nd edition!
Review by: John Stambaugh, Williams College - September 30, 2005
Both students in the Plato class said they found the notes helpful,...I and the students do appreciate the help your notes provided them. Certainly they had fewer troubles with the text of the Apology after they acquired your notes than before.
Review by: Brent Sinclar, University of Manitoba - September 30, 2005
In general, we found your commentary most useful. Your notes are lucid, helpful, and almost always to the point: in most cases they avoid the sort of artificial erudition which characterizes many other commentaries but which is of marginal interest to students at the beginning level. Your references to Smyth are invaluable.... I have every confidence that the book will serve a purpose both useful and necessary to instruction of intermediate Greek. B-C does a very nice job: congratulations!
