"We have long needed what no one before Claridge has provided: a synthesis, balanced and user-friendly, of all [the] recent scholarship, one that sets Roman monuments in their proper urban and historical contexts, and accurately describes what is currently known or thought about them. . . .
[T]ravellers . . .will welcome a synthesis so balanced, intelligent and well informed, and will find Amanda Claridge a fine companion on their archaeological walks in Rome."--Times Literary Supplement
"Claridge's book will appeal to a range of readers--from armchair archaelogists to serious visitors and students of Rome's archaeology.... Recommended."--CHOICE

I found, it is essential to read in advance if you want to make the best use of the book, and perhaps use some high-liners and post-it notes as bookmarks.. It is impossible to absorb all the information about an attraction when you are there, and it may ruin your experience if you try to read all the description of all the things you see. However, you can get a lot of interesting background information from this book. Be aware this is a book about Rome, Ostia is not included.
The diagrams are not necessarily ideal - black and white line drawings - but they're more than adequate. It's quite a chunky book so far from being something to slip into a pocket, more a rucksack. But these are minor drawbacks. It's an excellent work and a must-have for anyone exploring Rome's ancient ruins.
