A common question is how does this translation compare to others. Here's Mr. Manning's answer from below the paywall.
"David Grene’s work from 1987 has become a standard in the classroom. The Landmark Herodotus (2007) edited by Robert Strassler offers a solid translation, lots of maps, and appendices written by leading scholars, but it suffers from some outdated notes. My own personal favorite has become Robin Waterfield’s 1988 rendition. I particularly like the fluidity of his translation and the superb outline of the text and the notes provided by Carolyn Dewald, a leading scholar of Herodotus (I’m an academic and I like my notes). ...I'll only add that the The Landmark Herodotus was impressive in print, but not in the Kindle version. Each section of the work on paper was accompanied a brief summary, but many of these were misplaced in the ebook.
"Tom Holland succeeds by giving us a new, dynamic, living-and-breathing Herodotus. It is in my view the equal to Waterfield’s translation. Holland provides the reader with just enough notes at the end of the text to understand some context. A Glossary Index usefully combines definitions of important words with citations of relevant passages in the text. There are also good basic maps and a Map Index. The book is beautifully produced, with an Introduction and notes provided by Paul Cartledge."
