Ancient Greece/Roman best books?

Jan 2016
I was told some recommendations but seem to have lost them.

I though about buying the Encylopedia on both Ancient Greece and Roman Empire with cheif editor Carlos Gomez as they are on sale.

Are they a good read?

Any other recommendations?

Now that's a wide ambit! Those you mention are a bit like the books I used back in 5th and 6th form (last two years of high school): try to cover everything in 400-450 pages. I ended up going to books by Hammond, Green and others as I found more detail. Are there any areas you are more interested in than others or are you just after general introductory works?
