"Beyer has the students’ perspective firmly in mind when compiling material for this compact and comprehensive reader. Students today, much like Eutropius’ original audience, will find Book I to be a useful, episodic overview of early Roman history. . . . Instructors will find the consistent review of grammatical constructions throughout the book invaluable, and I think it is an excellent choice for beginning students transitioning from their textbook to Latin prose."—Debra Freas, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"Attractive and enriching, this is a unique book with real prose that is intelligible to a relative newcomer with the basics or even just patience. Here we have a book for intelligent Latin beginners who are curious about Roman roots."—Michael Idomir Allen, University of Chicago
"Perfectly strikes that elusive balance between the exhaustingly minute and mere gloss . . . Expertly clears the way for progressing Latin students and their teachers to engage Roman history."—Dale Grote, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
