    1. Richard Maybury makes an incredibly powerful comparison between ancient Rome and the United States, and discusses how the Roman belief structure has persisted in Europe and more recently invaded the United States. to the detriment of us all.In my capacity as a father, I have found the Uncle Eric series to be of superb value to me as I work to help my children understand honest economic and legal principles. As an Associate Professor of Pediatrics, I wish I could use the series to teach the docto [...]

    2. Wow, another MUST READ from the Uncle Eric series. Explains how many of the WORLD problems going on today stretch as far back as the Roman Empire, and how the "Roman Disease" continues to warp American, European, African, and Asian thinking to this day. Not as chock full of data and evidence as Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?, but still outstanding.My liberal friends will have their eyes opened to the problems of trying to fix the world, ala Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Clinton, and to the results of [...]

    3. The author contradicts himself. He says the Roman disease is bad, but then turns around and praises the Roman Republic. There were a lot of statements made that weren't backed up by anything. After reading Empires of Trust, this was a disappointment. This is the first book by this author that I have ever read--it makes me wary of the others.

    4. Quick read that does a great job explaining some of the differences between the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. It compares the fall of the Roman Empire to the demise of the U.S.S.R. Fascinating comparisons.

    5. I like the information that is found in these books, and I think that Maybury has a lot of good wisdom/insight into political results of historical happenings, but the "letter" format is so annoying. :-p

    6. This book is by no means perfect, and I think some of the author's theories went a little too far on more than one occasionbut overall, it's interesting and has quite a few valid points.

    7. Absolutely fascinating introduction to how Roman Law has crept into our own system today while it continues to drive the world's economy and relations among nations. Used as a supplement to our study of the Roman Empire, my 14 year old was as fascinated as I was. A bit weighty for my 11 year old.

    8. Scary book, not because it is written in a scary manner but because it contains truth. Because if we don't begin to abide by the elements of common law, which are 1) Do all you have agreed to do, and 2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property, we will be overwhelmingly ruled by political law of whatever seems expedient, which is extremely unpredictable and has always led to the downfall of civilization.

    9. I feel like I just read a huge secret that no one else knows about. I can't even summerize the amazing points that are brought out in this book. If you want to understand how history being repeated might pose a problem, this is the book for you. Just like with Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, I would supplement any history lesson with this book! Once again, I feel liked I have been forwarned about things to come, with great detail.

    10. Just like the other books by Richard J. Maybury, I found this book to be very thought provoking. This book shows how our current government and the governments of many other countries base their decisions on the principles of the Roman Empire. It is evident to me that this is true by how much Rome is glorified and depicted in our money and monuments.A very interesting read, one that will most likely change your mind about how you view the Middle East and Europe.

    11. A review for Sally: All I can say is, "We're headed for the dark ages!" Unless we do some serious back-pedaling. I already want to reread this book. It's short enough to read in a few hours. Also it makes me want to read The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.

    12. This in The Little Book That Roared. This book, with good logic, tells you how we got into the governmental, social and economical mess that we're in but also where it might be going.A MUST READ, then judge for yourself.

    13. This book is very eye-opening. Everyone should read it. It totally turns your mind around. The author has a whole series and they should be read in order, which I am doing. It really helps you understand what's wrong with government and law today.
