The Life of Flavius Josephus

by Flavius Josephus

A wonderful story, related by a master story-teller. Josephus' dealings with his political and military opponents is consistently brilliant and riveting. His ability to outwit opponents, knowing when to fight and when to flee, and his general prudence all come across quite clearly. This book is full of action and intrigue, and I had difficulty putting it down.

On a scale of "Plan 9 from Outerspace" to "The Godfather Part I" this was "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
