DK's Ancient Rome book is definitely captivating. It's worth the read even if you don't love history. I didn't until I really began to relearn history. I never had a true full history class; so I'm digging up random books on it. DK has a variety of bite sized 'text' on hundreds of topics. You'll love the illustrations, interesting artifacts of Ancient Rome, really see what people wore, did, ate, and acted. It is condesed well written, and worth the buy for your adult shelf or child's shelf. Decent read.

We used this book as a supplement to our homeschool history class. I basically bought it for the photos and it was just what we needed to give the kids a good visual of ancient Rome. I am sure we will refer to it again and again over the next several years. A good one to have on your shelf!

Are there any "bad" DK books?? This one is great...lots of good pictures with information for the whole family. This is one of the books we purchased for our children and grandchildren in preparation for a family trip to Rome and southern Italy. Hopefully, as they read it, they'll start to get a feel for this wonderful city and will begin to develop a list of "must sees" as we spend a few days there. Even if you're not planning to visit, it's a great book to browse through and wish you were there.

My 8-yr old grandson really enjoys these books. Well written and accurate information for young minds. He has also read Ancient China, Ancient Greece, World War II, and Ocean. I recommend these books to anyone interested in learning.

In general I like DK books. This one was a little basic , and there were some things that I wanted to find and did not see about Rome.But what was covered was pretty well covered, and I liked the pictures used to illustrate.

My interest is to study the history of...The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire...in relation to the books of Daniel and Revelation in the Bible. The images and clarity of content are super.
