Having read other books by Dr Carrier I approached this one with caution. Another reviewer suggested that it was heavy on the detail, and this s very true. Given that this is an anthology of academic works, this was not unexpected, but it is tough going in patches, going into minute detail when you would prefer more of a narrative. I can see why this is the case, and I enjoyed it, but some chapters are a hard slog - overall I really enjoyed it.
For those of you who have read Dr Carrier's work on religious topics, there is plenty in here on specific topics in that field. For me, I found some of the stuff on Roman culture, classes and ranks to be quite interesting, mostly because I have read an lot of books on Christianity but not on ancient civilisations. I was hoping to find Dr Carrier's book "The Christian Delusion" on Audible but it is not yet available. Having finished this book and also listened to some of the lectures online i think that many people would be interested in ancient civilisation and technologies.
