A good, solid reference, but with some fairly major and minor errors. Among the minor, count placing hemlock in the potato family, when it is actually in the carrot family; among the major, getting the date of the Reformation wrong. The author also has an unfortunate tendancy to (inconsistently) cite sources of information about a heretic taken only from its opponents (since in many cases their original works are not available), and present them as if they are to be taken at face value; however, in other spots, he mentions that these should be taken with some level of question. Overall, however, a good, thorough reference on early Christian heretics.
