I bought the Kindle version of this book after thumbing through a hard-cover copy at a bookstore. Although I'm not an expert on Roman History (more of an enthusiastic amateur), I found the book to be well written -- the author knows his history and primary sources -- and extremely interesting, covering as it does 'common' Roman people. Especially interesting was the section on gladiators.

This seemed as if it would be really interesting, but I was disappointed. No new insights, no new evidence produced, sloppily written and informed author's prejudices as a twenty-first century American.
