– Dan Jones, Daily Telegraph

“It is difficult not to be bedazzled by a cast that includes ulcerated Christian holy men, Zoroastrian priests obsessed with dental hygiene, demonic emperors, barbarians with self-inflicted cranial deformities and Arab ambassadors stinking of camel”
– Richard Miles, Financial Times

“I found myself amused, diverted and enchanted by turn … He writes with a contagious conviction that history is not only a fascinating tale in itself but is a well-honed instrument with which we can understand our neighbours and our own times, maybe even ourselves”
– Barnaby Rogerson, Independent
