This is a good overview of Caesar's life and contains the latest research findings about Caesar and the late Roman Republic. For example, the old trope that Caesar destroyed the Roman Republic is unequivocally shown to be false. The book is a good read for anyone who wants to learn what was really going on in Rome during Caesar's lifetime and how Caesar fit into this turbulent time in history.

A briiiiiiilliant book !!!!! Light to read, it provides us at the same time with a great amount of details and anecdotes, with literary references and analyses. A-ma-zing!
Interesting to read .... found it more about the workings of the Republic than Julius Caesar, but enjoyed reading it.
