Customer Review

on 16 August 2013
This is another fantastic pick up and read book by Philip Matyszak and if you are in anyway interested in at least one of the Julio Claudian Dynasty then this will have you hooked. The relaxed style of the author guides you back and forth through the events quoting passages from the historians whilst adding his own learned view where evidence has been lost or subject to hype such as Tiberius' lifestyle choices in Capri. There are also numerous black and white photographs of marble busts,beautiful Cameos and significant coins of the of the emperors and their families which break up the narrative nicely. This book is also a perfect partner to the BBC I Claudius television programme and in my mind John Hurt will always be Little Boots.
