A great anthology of Ancient Roman literature. I was introduced to many writers that I had previously only heard about. Of course, as an anthology it will pick and choose on writings, but the translations come from some surprising sources. This book should inspire people to chase down and read the full source of their favorite sections.

Everyone needs to read Cicero's speech on Cataline and do what I did -- read it out to the class in true orator style so you can really _see_ the craftsmanship.
