I was first introduced to the seminal work in my discipline in the fall of Junior year as an undergraduate. I was a poor student who bought the cheapest books I could off of Amazon so I ended up with a yellowed Penguin Classics paperback copy. Aristotle was interesting, but largely failed to make an impression. The binding was falling apart, the print was small, and I had a full class load. It was a book I wanted to hurry to finish because it was not enjoyable to look at and read.

Book Review: Carnes Lord’s Translation of Aristotle’s Politics
This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style. The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive Introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other.
