Book Summary of Caesar

From the very beginning, Caesar's story makes dazzling reading. In his late teens he narrowly avoided execution for opposing the military dictator Sulla. He was decorated for valour in battle, captured and held to ransom by pirates, and almost bankrupted himself by staging games for the masses. As a politician, he quickly gained a reputation as a dangerously ambitious maverick. By his early 30s he had risen to the position of Consul, and was already beginning to dominate the Senate. His affairs with noblewomen were both frequent and scandalous. His greatest skill, outside the bedroom, was as a military commander. In a string of spectacular victories he conquered all of Gaul, invaded Germany, and twice landed in Britain - an achievement which in 55BC was greeted with a public euphoria comparable to that generated by the moon landing in 1969. In just thirty years he had risen from a position of virtual obscurity to become one of the richest men in the world, with the power single-handedly to overthrow the Republic. By his death he was effectively emperor of most of the known world.

Joyce April 20, 2010 review from Goodreads

I found this book incredibly dull. Well researched--no question that almost all of the known material on Caesar is summarized here--but does it have to be so boring? While reading it, I found myself constantly comparing it wih Colleen McCullough's 5 volume fictional work on Caesar; IMHO, her book...

Michael March 04, 2009 review from Goodreads

I have read about Caesar here and there: his own accounts of the Gallic Wars and the Civil War, Plutarch's description of his life, and Theodore Ayrault Dodge's "Caesar" (which confines itself to an examination solely of his military actions). This is the first full biography I have ever read ab...

Richard May 31, 2012 review from Goodreads

Few men in the Ancient world are as well known, or as controversial as Caesar. Even today, debates rage over the life of this man.General, politician, orater, and man of staggering ambition.While long, this book moves quickly, doesn't bog the reader down in overly technical archaic scholarship. W...

Marcus September 04, 2011 review from Goodreads

It is hard to find any flaws in this biography - after all, it is written by Adrian Goldsworthy, one of today's major authorities regarding late republic and early Roman empire and who by now has published a multitude of academic works on the subject. At the same time I can't feel but feel disap...

'Aussie Rick' June 12, 2009 review from Goodreads

Adrian Goldsworthy's latest book, "Caesar", is another one of those great books that you cannot afford to miss this year. Following on from his excellent run of books; "The Punic Wars" and "In The Name of Rome", this new title is a great addition to anyone's library. The tale of Julius Caesar has...
