The Big Picture
This book provides the big picture regarding life in ancient Rome as well as details of day-to-day life. Most history books focus on the dates, individuals and significant events without providing a frame of reference for the modern-day reader. This book sheds new light on books I have previously read of and about the genre. It is essential reading for anyone studying the classics. I'd like to see a series covering other historical periods such as ancient Greece and colonial America, etc. I wish I read it sooner. History in school should be introduced in this way.
