Review:

"Students will appreciate those entries that focus on leisure activities-the Greek Olympics, the Roman charioteers. The writing clear and the few black-and white illustrations are appropriate..."
--School Library Journal (April 2004) (School Library Journal 20040401)

"That the seeds of modern society are found in the lives of the ancients is clearly demonstrated in this collection of excerpts from primary sources and articles by present-day commentators."
--School Library Journal (October 2004) (School Library Journal 20041001)
