This is a collection of (short) passages written by philosophical commentators in late antiquity, such as Plotinus, Porphyry, Proclus and many more. The works which they comment upon are of course those of Plato and Aristotle. The book is organized by topic, often starting with a short quotation from Plato or Aristotle followed by a series of commentator texts on the same topic. I think this works quite well, the texts are well translated, they're not very difficult and the book can be used also for referencing specific platonic or aristotelian topics if you're not interested in the details of every obscure problem. Personally I thought it was interesting to see how many links there are between neoplatonic thought and early christian theology.
