5.0 out of 5 stars What did the Romans ever do for us?, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Romans For Dummies (Paperback)
Guy de la Bedoyere has written a fantastic account of the Roman Empire, a great sweep across history. This is not a dull, dusty tome, quite the reverse. In spite of having studied Latin at university (or Humanity, as it was called at Glasgow University) I learned so much from this. The Romans almost leap from the pages in all their merits and defects. I can't think of a more entertaining way to learn - I recommend this book unreservedly. It is a jolly good read, and I can't wait to read the volume on the Greeks now.

I love Guy's work for the OU, especially the shots of him riding his old Honda 500/4, so I bought his book - I wasn't disappointed - brilliant scholarship with direct and accessible style.
