This was good in that it was a collection of a lot of good authors and it made me want to read them in full.

It's biggest shortcomings are being what it is (I get the impression I'm missing out on a lot from Livy) and it's appalling lack of an index or even decent explanatory footnotes!

Overall, fun: makes me want to read all of Livy.

Despite the fact that it was basically one big abridged book, I really liked it. Primary sources are too much fun, and this was a well-arranged primary source bonanza.
Michael
Good group of primary sources about the Roman Republic and Empire. I enjoyed it a lot.
Moses Operandi
Great selection of texts, but very confusing layout and NO INDEX.
Dane
Great collection of Roman historians.
