Great review of a lot of the famous men in Rome. I sure learned a lot and the kids liked it too. :)
Another solid installment from the Shearer's featuring biographies of ancient Romans. While I like this approach as a supplement, I'm not sure I could endorse it as a stand alone approach to ancient history.

I continue to notice the limitation of a purely humanities approach to history. The Shearer's background is firmly in these disciplines, and a full understanding of history extends beyond politics and government to the economics and technologies that propel countries into empires and empires
Update: excellent overview for us. My daughter enjoyed reading the stories, more than some of the other books we bought on Ancient Rome. Definitely going to check out more Greenleaf guides!

I'm reading this book, a little at a time, with my daughter, for our study of ancient Rome. I like the format and writing a lot so far. And so does my 12 yr old daughter! I think we'll be buying some more of these Greenleaf guides as we go through the Middle Ages, etc.. next year.
Great book as an overview of the Roman Empire. We use the Greenleaf books in our homeschool. We paused at Augustus Caesar to get some more in depth study especially since that time period leads into the life of Christ.
Highly recommended.
