All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring)
These books present accounts of selected events that distinguish certain historical periods. Examples include jousting (Knight), battling lions (Gladiator), and training for raiding (Warrior). Each book is narrated by a cocky youth, which adds humor but becomes tiresome. Cartoonlike illustrations and numerous text boxes accompany the main texts. Related facts are appended. Glos., ind. [Review covers these How to Live Like... titles: A Medieval Knight, A Roman Gladiator, and A Viking Warrior.]
Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2015 November)

Gr 3–5—Adventure-seeking readers will find much to enjoy here. Each book focuses on the life of a young warrior, who describes his training, weapons and armor, and battles. His story is supplemented by background about his culture and its people, brief overviews of the culture's most famous combatants, and numerous step-by-step instructions for training or battle or detailed descriptions of how these fighters carried out their tasks. Each spread has a "Warning!" sidebar about daily dangers. The caricature-style illustrations include depictions of the subject and his companions, his culture, and its buildings and ships. Though a little short on report detail, these lively offerings are likely to capture the imaginations of those who long for tales of bravery and daring escapades. VERDICT Good supplemental purchases for upper elementary readers.
