Praise

Advance praise for Nero

“This exciting and provocative book grabs the reader while supporting its arguments with careful classical scholarship. The authors write with authority and elegance. Nero is a pleasure to read.”—Barry Strauss, author of The War That Made the Roman Empire: Antony, Cleopatra, and Octavian at Actium


Praise for Anthony Everitt

Alexander the Great

“Reads as easily as a novel . . . [Anthony] Everitt has a wealth of anecdotes and two millennia of histories to work with, and he delivers and interprets them flawlessly. Nearly unparalleled insight into the period and the man make this a story for everyone.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Rise of Rome


“Fascinating history and a great read.”Chicago Sun-Times

“Everitt writes for the informed and the uninformed general reader alike, in a brisk, conversational style, with a modern attitude of skepticism and realism.”The Dallas Morning News

“Elegant, swift and faultless.”The Spectator

Cicero

“An excellent introduction to a critical period in the history of Rome . . . Cicero comes across much as he must have lived.”The Wall Street Journal

“Riveting . . . a clear-eyed biography [offering] vivid lessons about the viciousness that can pervade elected government.”Chicago Tribune

Augustus

“Fascinating and brisk to read . . . All the stuff of adventure is here, from court intrigue to roving armies to shipwreck.”The Washington Post Book World

“A narrative of sustained drama and skillful analysis . . . an accomplished biography.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
