This book looks at ancient Rome in a new light

I am indebted to The Younger Daughter in two ways regarding the audiobook The Fate of Rome.

  1. She recommended the book in the first place, and it’s fascinating; and
  2. She told me how I can listen to it free through getting it as audiobook with 1 of the 2 free credits I would get for signing up with Audible.com.

So I signed up, and the 2 credits were clearly displayed. I searched for the book title, purchased the audiobook for 1 credit, and I’ve been listening to it. It’s amazing how the change in perspective adds to one’s understanding. One example: while the Romans were building all those excellent roads that lead to Rome, they also were in effect constructing efficient transportation channels that would allow infectious diseases to spread swiftly and widely.

So go ahead and sign up — even if you don’t get any other books, this one is definitely worth the (free) sign-up.
