About this event

Come join us for our reading group to discuss Xenophon's Anabasis starting this March, 2022.

"Xenophon’s Anabasis is a fascinating tale of fraught and dangerous journey, and this translation shines new light on the long-revered text. The narrative tells of ten thousand Greek soldiers stranded deep in hostile Persia, their commander dead. Xenophon was appointed as one of their leaders, and he chronicled the harrowing journey as he led the “marching republic” north to the Black Sea.

As with the other volumes in the Landmark series, this edition—edited by Shane Brennan and David Thomas—supplements the text with detailed maps and annotations that place the work in historical context. With its stunning endpapers and enlightening illustrations, this beautifully produced, large-format hardcover will make a perfect gift for history buffs and all readers of the classics."

The Reading Odyssey method:

We have a method that makes the mind-blowing experience of reading great books possible for most adults.

You don't need to be a scholar. You don't need a master's degree of PhD. 

What do you need? 

To be curious. To know how to read. To skip stuff you don't understand. And to ask questions.

And you need to be willing to try reading a book - like Herodotus, Darwin, Plato, or, in this case, Xenophon.

So, how does it work?

  • Community of adult readers
  •  Led by a moderator
  • In partnership with leading scholars
  • Phone-based monthly meetings (with toll-free phone number)
  • Free (veterans may donate) 

It's simple and we've done it a lot since we began in 2005. 

Our guarantee

If you join us and do the monthly reading, skip the passages that confuse you, ask your moderator and our partner scholars for help, then you will finish a great book and be exhilarated and inspired by the experience. Or your money back.

We take no responsibility for the innovation and creativity that will come from time travel

We take no responsibility for what cool thoughts and ideas you will have nor for the new ways you'll think, see and lead after time traveling via reading a really good book with us. 

Come discover humanity's best-kept secret

These books are one of humanity's best kept secrets - these wonderful, centuries-tested books have been masquerading as boring, dusty, conservative, irrelevant old tracts. Come discover otherwise.

Bottomline: put down that remote and pick up a book and join us on this reading odyssey.
