I found this book a fairly engaging read. It certainly covers the political history of the Roman polity with sufficient clarity and comprehensiveness. The maps, photos of antiquities, and informational aids at the back of the book (glossary, map index, timeline, ...) were quite helpful. However, I would have preferred to read less about emperors' careers and more about 1) the religious beliefs and philosophical currents that are frequently mentioned but left completely unexplained and 2) people's daily lives and physical environment (e.g. sewers).
