Psst! It's true! This is the best book on ROMANS you'll ever read!

Marius butchered his enemies, Crassus stole, Clodius lied and Julius Caesar didn't care about anyone other than Julius Caesar. It's true: the Romans were gangsters.

This book is full of cheating, stabbing, vomiting and general bad behaviour. There are severed heads on spears, messy massacres and streets flowing with blood. Find out who wore a purple-striped toga, who was crooked, who was mean and who was just plain crazy.

Brain your buddies with bizarre facts about the bad boys of BC
