Historical Setting: Ancient Rome

"It is extremely readable, consistently entertaining...No book that tells the reader that the Romans slept in their underwear and debates whether or not they brushed their teeth is without merit--New England Classical Newsletter.

"One of the key elements to the usefulness of this book is the presence of direct quotes from noted Roman speakers, writers, and philosophers which are effectively intermingled with description and history - A lively, highly readable, entertaining gold mine of information which should be on the `required reading' list of students of Latin and world history"--Library Journal

"Tingay and Badcock present a well illustrated text and are to be complimented on the extensive use of original sources as a part of their text"--The Classical Outlook. "Well-researched...Highly recommended"--The Book Report.
