Drawing numerous parallels with modern events, Haynes reveals the surprisingly accessible societies of Ancient Greece and Rome. While reviews have made much of her work as a stand-up comic, the book is not a zany routine but rather a droll and accessible exploration of the classical world and its continued relevance.

"Men stand on the battle line, run the risk of an early grave and are called heroes. Women bear children, run the risk of an early grave and are left for a younger model."
