In what is surely a record for me, it took 20 months to read this book, as I read pieces at a time. However, that doesn't mean it still wasn't a very informative read. Almost all the info was organized into manageable one or two page spreads, and the prose was quite accessible for a history book. Some information seemed to be repeated, a minor deduction, but overall a good book for fans of Roman history.

For a non-fiction book, I enjoyed it a lot. Nigel Rodgers makes the writing easy to read and understand. He gives a broad history of Rome starting with their Etruscan origins all the way to the fall. I have always loved learning about Ancient Rome and this book really filled some of the gaps in my knowledge.

Fascinating look at Rome: their elite, armies, forms of worship, their victories and defeats.

Rome practically invented the lush lifestyle we associate with their and other cultures such as Greece.

Lush with photos, drawings and maps,this book is one every member of the entire family

Fun, broad-scoped escapade through Roman History whose topics of normally two-page sections run the gamut, from the simple "Emperors of Rome" to the obscure "Hairtyles and Cosmetics."
