Format: Paperback
The other reviewers have the right of it, this book is complete garbage. Having read the original moralizing historians and their heady descriptions of sex and violence I am astonished to find that they were topped in this book! Considering how extreme Romans could be when writing of their political enemies that takes some work. A lot of these stories are made up and have no basis even in contemporary slander. The dotting the i with blood is particularly neat. As a previous reviewer has pointed out the Romans didn't even HAVE a lowercase letter i. Were I a more cynical man I might question the author's devotion to truth. As it is I can only recommend that you read this book. Surprise! My God it's amusing! But for any sort of historical purposes it's best to remember that this book is nothing but a work of fiction.

Format: Paperback
This is worth reading for entertainment. It is not boring by any stretch and you may find that you finish this book far sooner than you would have thought.

The authors do not offer any real proof of any claim within. The stories of the excessive emperors are too fantastical to be true.

The book has all the charm of a Hollywood movie. It is exciting, grotesque, shocking, and sinfully enjoyable.

I did not purchase this book for its historical accuracy. That being said, it is as enjoyable as watching a gladiator movie.
