      What can I say, it s all about the content and Suetonius was in a position to give us information on the Caesars that is as reputable as it comes You can t get much closer to the emperors of Rome in a digest, and an eloquent one at that, than Suetonius affords and it s always valuable to read primary sources they never go out of style.

    5. Sam Vanderplas says:
      Fascinating accounts of Julius and Augustus Horrific accounts of Tiberius and Caligula A testament to man s ability for unimaginable evil when his power is unchecked Makes one thankful for our American checks on power Sections on the cruelties of Tiberius and Caligula should be required reading in school.
