This is a brief tour through Caesar"s life, and it hits all the important events. However, it is not 100% accurate and continues to present as "facts" events that have been disproven, such as, the burning of the Alexandrian library. It has been proven that Caesar did not burn it down but Southern states that he did.
I think if I had read/studied this on my own. I probably would have enjoyed it.

It's a classic for a reason but sadly school either makes it or breaks it. In my case, ruins it.
