A brilliant book.,
This review is from: The Colosseum (Wonders of the World) (Hardcover)
If you want to know some interesting facts about the Colosseum but aren't into dry academic type books, try this one. It's easy to read, factual (unlike a lot of internet information about the Colosseum which is just plain wrong), and humourous. The authors are clearly passionate about the subject and want to inspire the same enthusiasm into the reader.
I love Rome, visit it often and next time will see the Colosseum through different eyes. If you're at all interested in Rome or ancient Roman history you'll love this book.
