Impressively well-researched and unfailingly engaging -- John Dillon * The Irish Times *
McLynn has written a huge, erudite survey of the social, cultural, economic and political world of the second century AD rather than a mere biography of Marcus Aurelius...there is much to enjoy here and even more to be learned * Literary Review *
By exposing the real Marcus Aurelius, this biography illuminates an important era of transition...it was under Marcus that the delicate balance was disturbed and this, too, is his legacy. -- Martin Empson * TLS *
A flickering torch in the darkness, and with his fine biography, Frank McLynn tends the flame. -- Stephen McGinty * Scotsman *
