The book is a summary of Greek and Roman classical culture. It is to be sipped, not read in one sitting. The jacket says: “What do you know about the classical world, besides Veni, vidi, vici? Where do words like “patrimony” and “matrimony” originate? Why is the heel dubbed “Achilles’? Who were Homer, Cicero, Pythagoras, or Julius Caesar? What was Troy, Marathon, or the Thermopylae? Where and why are democracy, the theater or the Olympics born? It’s never late to know our roots. The subtitle says “What I needed to know when leaving school”.
