This review is from: Marcus Aurelius: Warrior, Philosopher, Emperor (Hardcover)
A long and excellent read, though the arguably pretentious use of some obscure words necessitates the presence of a dictionary while you are reading. However, the book painted an excellent picture of the life of Marcus Aurelius and his comtemporaries, and just as interestingly, a revealing picture of the economic and social life of Rome and its downtrodden citizens. Staying the course of this book will bring substantial rewards to readers who are fascinated by ancient history.
