The Roman Way makes vividly interesting the contrast between Roman and Greek culture. Moreover, it reveals how surprisingly similar Roman civilization was to that of modern America, in respects ranging from an interest in good roads and good plumbing, to the popular veneration of home and mother. Our heritage from Rome includes everything from moral laws to stock characters in the drama. Skillful, witty, subtle in understanding, this audiobook shows us what the Romans were like, how they lived, what they thought, and what they accomplished.

I was really excited to listen to this book but overall, I wasnt too impressed with this book. Though, I did enjoy learning about some of the similarities between Greece, Rome and modern times.
