I cannot comment upon the quality of translation. The notes to the book are clear and consise. Unlike with Livey there are few questions about Tacttus' accuracy.

For those who enjoy reading prose with pithy remarks it is a great read. I understand Thoma Jefferson read Taditus over and over again as did many of our founding fathers, but in Latin, of course.
