bookshelves: history
Recommended for: anyone who's fascinated by Rome.
Read in January, 2007

I like facts. I like information. I get sick of cultural mumbo-jumbo quickly. Sure, Gibbon spends his share of time providing context to his events, but he doesn't make it the central point. This book is jammed full of information that I didn't know. Maybe some of it is not exactly accurate, but the lion's share is straight meaty history. I loved it, Decline and Fall was enthralling.
