Not a great read, but I think still worth slogging through if you have a particular interest in digging into the foundations of western philosophy, Socrates, ancient Greek philosophy, or some such. If that does not describe you, and you are still looking at this book for some reason :), I would not recommend. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801481716, Paperback)

An essential text for understanding Socrates, Xenophon's Memorabilia is the compelling tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, providing a rare firsthand account of Socrates' life and philosophy. The Memorabilia is invaluable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. The longest of Xenophon's four Socratic works, it is particularly revealing about the differences between Socrates and his philosophical predecessors.
