SPQR was a lot of fun--I don't have the qualifications to evaluate Mary Beard's scholarship but she must be a terrific undergraduate lecturer, the kind who gets raves on Rate My Professor but people in remote disciplines like Engineering or Molecular Biology. She devotes a certain amount of time to reminding the reader not to take "I, Claudius" for history--even quasi-history; I probably fell into this (gossip is always memorable) but I can live without the tale of Livia poisoning every fig on Augustus' tree. It's still a great series.
