Entertaining and informative, this book provides a fascinating and useful introduction to classical mythology, history and culture The Oldie
It has been one of those days. You've worked like a Trojan, displaying titanic strength and stoic endurance in order to overcome the Herculean labours that have faced you in order to meet that deadline. We regularly employ classically-derived expressions in our everyday language, yet many of us have little understanding of the origin of these common phrases. But an incomplete classical education need no longer be your Achilles heel. "Opening Pandora's Box" offers a light-hearted yet fascinating look at the stories behind the expressions.
