Written by:
Adrian Goldsworthy

Derek Perkins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
August 2014
24 hours 51 minutes
Tracing the extraordinary trajectory of Julius Caesar's life, Adrian Goldsworthy covers not only the great Roman emperor's accomplishments as charismatic orator, conquering general, and powerful dictator but also lesser-known chapters. Ultimately, Goldsworthy realizes the full complexity of Caesar's character and shows why his political and military leadership continues to resonate some two thousand years later.

In this landmark biography, Goldsworthy examines Caesar as a military leader, as well as his other roles, and places his subject firmly within the context of Roman society in the first century B.C.

The author gives you too much information and is hard to follow at times. Overall I enjoyed the book and I did learn a lot about the life of Caesar but less could have been more in this case.

Great book that is very in depth and informative. I found myself so drawn into the story and life of Caesar that I wanted to find out what happened next every moment despite already knowing his history. Narrator is great, and fits the tone of th novel.
