    This reads less like a dry, didactic enumeration of Roman emperors and like a cozy, convivial chat over tea with an old friend Lissner is patently enthusiastic about his subject, and his enthusiasm is infectious This is not a rigorous academic analysis some sections are, in fact, breezy and full of idle speculation and bits of tantalizing rumor, but it offers a thorough overview for the casual reader and armchair historian.
