Verhoogt states in the book's front matter that he wanted to create a gateway to the online world of papyrology and make it accessible to the "uninitiated" without dumbing down the material. With that goal in mind, this book is an outstanding success. Both the uninitiated and the novice papyrology student will find much of use in this volume, one that is also an enjoyable read.
