The book is aimed at the general reader, rather than the specialist or the hard-core archaeology buff. While it covers the subject well, it doesn't do so exhaustively. Occasionally, one would welcome more detail: for example, instead of cataloguing ALL of the Pompeiian grafitti relating to gladiators, the text discusses only a small sampling of them. Nor is there much discussion of how Pompeii's gladitorial entertainments may have differed from those of other Roman cities of the time.
Still, as a basic introduction to the role gladitorial games played in ancient Pompeii, this book has its merits.
