Reading Thucydides can be a painful experience. If you ever have/want to get a good understanding of what is actually going on, this is the book for you. There are helpful summaries of every little section, many many useful footnotes, and lots of maps in the places you need them most so you really have no excuse to have no idea what is going on. My Penguin Classics version of Thucydides is pretty much a waste of space on my bookshelf now. I will never pick this book up to read it for pleasure, but I find something undeniably sexy about having it on my shelf. I'd like a hardcover version if such a thing existed. It's a hefty book and pages are already threatening to escape after a semester of use. It is easy to confuse it with your Wheelock's Latin textbook, if you happen to have both of these books on your shelf at the same time.
