Format: Kindle Edition
If you are familiar with the BBC's "Alistair Cooke's Letter from America" this has a very similar feel. Each chapter draws a different parallel with the current events and the authors life (both in the US and UK) with the classical word.

Its a very easy read, almost light weight and I mean that as a compliment as I have struggled through some weighty tomes and learned a lot less! It is concise, witty and informative!

As always, from this author, a fascinating book. It's an easy read, but at the same time, deals with interesting and sometimes very topical subjects in a manner that leaves the reader mulling over things long after that chapter is done. I often found myself thinking, wow, I didn't know,that! Highly recommended to all.

A very accessable book assembled as a series of blogs comparing and contrasting current events, many major headline grabbers, with their classical equivalents. The format makes it very easy to dip in and out of and the currency of some of the events really brings home how there really is nothing new under the sun. Those who ignore history may well be condemned to repeat it, unfortunately, as Lindsay's observations show, even those who study it may be unable to do anything more than take comfort from the knowledge that somehow our ancestors coped under very similar conditions.

HASH(0x9c2e6870) out of 5 stars All Things Under the Sun 31 July 2011
By Ginnie Siena Bivona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am fascinated by ancient history, so this book was an ideal choice. I often try to point out the parallels between the past and the present, but most people (mostly my children) just roll their eyes and sigh heavily whenever I mention it. The book is written in a very entertaining way...you almost feel like you are having a conversation with the author. Educational and well written.

HASH(0x9c2f4ed0) out of 5 stars Unique and entertaining book that connects history with what's happening today! 25 May 2011
By STJAustin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is published at just the right time; when we are pondering so many issues. It's a one-of-a-kind book brim full of fresh perspectives on everyday life, and it surprises us with how much of what we do today, and the challenges we face, have their origins in the Ancient World.

It's a fun read that's educational too.

HASH(0x9c331d38) out of 5 stars All Things Under The Sun 13 July 2011
By GySgt Red Millis USMC (ret) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Received my copy yesterday, in three hours it was done! As a historian, I can appreciate both the information and witty, but succinct style in which the Author has made his points.

This work is not a comparison of Rome and today, rather it is a superb overview of the way in which human institutions parallel each other regardless of the passage of time between them.

For an enjoyable read, an educating read, and a read which will make every dime and minute spent on it worthwhile, I cannot recommend anything better.

Now, onward to the Author's first major work on the Elder Drusus...I anticipate more of the same!
