I just finished re-reading this book (again), and McCullough's series is so brilliant, it just gets better every time I do! This volume deals with the decline and fall of Gaius Marius, arguably Rome's first truly successful popularis, and the continuing rise of his former friend turned rival, Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Also featured is the early childhood of Gaius Iulius Caesar, arguably the most famous Roman who ever lived. A must-read for any serious enthusiast of ancient Rome!
