It is interesting to read old histories because it gives one a view of how people thought when the book was written. The author Jacob Abbott was a New England Congregationalist preacher and college professor in the early to mid 19th century. He was also a writer of children's books. I had wondered if this would be a compilation of facts and views from Shakespeare and Caesar's Commentaries, but there was definately more to it than that. He filled in holes left in the Commentaries and Shakespeare's play. It was a fairly short read. The author tried to be evenhanded, but I don't think he really liked Caesar all that much. For someone who wants some basic backgrond on Caesar this would be a good place to go, but you would certain be left wanting more.

This is a very accessible story of Julius Caesar, the great Roman soldier and stateman. Jacob Abbott had gathered historical information from various (ancient) sources and written a bio that is interesting and accurate. I learned much more about Caesar and his motives from this book than I ever did in school.

I plan on reading more of Mr. Abbott's histories.

This book is very easy reading.I read the book in one week and found it to be informative about Julius Caesar,also i would recommend this book to sudents Ancient Rome.The book is written in simple plain language,and what i have found very surprising is that this book was written in 1877 by the author.This book is very good reading and value for money.

I really like the way Jacob Abbott writes history. He has a way of making it very accessible (easy to read) and engaging at the same time.
This book was no different. I finished this book in 2 days. Great read. If you want to retreat into the world of antiquity and just enjoy a good read I highly recommend this book. I also recommend another book he wrote: Cleopatra which I absolutely loved (actually Cleopatra is a better read only because her life was a little more interesting than Caesars- well that's what I think anyways).

This is history as seen by a clergyman from another century. It is inflected with his values and is thus an historical document in itself. If you enjoy reading history you know that dependence on any one source is a mistake. Only by reading writers who come from several different directions can you hope to triangulate your way to some clearer idea of how things were. This compact little book is worth the small investment of time required to read it.

Jacob Abbott wrote a series of histories of great historical figures around the turn of the 20th century. This one, about Julius Caesar is one of the best. Abbott provides great details in his books which are short and to the point. Something I liked about this book is that it contains details I didnt know well. Abbott covers Caesar 's early life and his role in the Sylla and Marius conflict well. He also gives ample time to Caesar's conflict with Pompey. The short shift is given to Caesar after the conflict with Pompey was over.

For those---are there those?---who don't know the story of Julius Caesar, this is a great introduction to the great arc of his life. It is told in simple terms, but it gets the timeline right, and after you read this carefully you can dish the man with most anybody.

The cool thing for me was to hear the story retold simply by an American from the 1830s.
