About the Author
Titus Livius (59 BC-AD 17) began working on his History of Rome at the age of 30 and continued for over 40 years until his death. The history ran to 142 books, of which 35 survive.
Betty Radice (1912-1985) read classics at Oxford, then married and, in the intervals of bringing up a family, tutored in classics, philosophy and English. She became joint editor of the Penguin Classics in 1964. As well as editing the translation of Livy’s The War with Hannibal she translated Livy’s Rome and Italy, Pliny’s Letters, The Letters of Abelard and Heloise and Erasmus’s Praise of Folly, and also wrote the introduction to Horace’s Complete Odes and Epodes, all for the Penguin Classics. She also edited Edward Gibbon’s Memoirs of My Life for the Penguin English Library, and edited and annotated her translation of the younger Pliny’s works for the Loeb Library of Classics and translated from Renaissance Latin, Greek and Italian for the Officina Bodoni of Verona. She collaborated as a translator in the Collected Works of Erasmus, and was the author of the Penguin Reference Book Who’s Who in the Ancient World. Radice was an honorary fellow of St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and a vice-president of the Classical Association.

It is good to see more classics in the Kindle format, but Penguin needs to put in more effort when releasing these old works in the new format. Most of the issues relate to utlising the format to its maximum potential.
i. Although there is an interactive table of contents, it isn't listed when the reader selects the 'Go To' option, forcing the reader to select either 'Cover' and scroll forward or the 'Beginning' option and scroll back.
ii. The notes should have interactive links in them where the note is referencing another part of the book, especially where the reference is a page number. This chronological index has interactive links which is fantastic.
iii. There are many formatting errors which I do not recall in the print original. These include incorrect spacing between full stops and the next sentence, new sections that begin in the middle of paragraphs, minor spelling errors (correctly spelled but incorrectly chosen words) to name a few.
iv. Worst of all, the maps are not present, so the interactive links lead to the section following where they should be. The maps are essential for most readers to understand the action being narrated in the book.
The author does a fantastic job considering what he had to work with.
