Has anyone read Alexander the Great and the Mystery of the Elephant Medallions?

The description makes it sound like an exciting read.  How much of it is about the medallions themselves?

ember:
Hi,

I've read Prof. Holt's book, and I enjoyed it very much.  It gives a bit of an overview of his military campaign, and various theories on the reasons why the medallions were minted (including his own very plausible ideas).  There is quite a bit of information on the medallions including Appendices on the published coins and possible forgeries.
