I devoured each in absolute awe of anyone who could absorb history in such fine detail and then turn it around and personalize it in such a way, that you could actually believe Caesar himself to be the author. Now, the book is out in hardcover and I am no less impressed by Mr. Katz's ability to reveal his strengths as an author.

is review is from:Imperator (Hardcover)
 For more than a year I have caught glimpses of Philip Katz¶s book: Imperator, The Life of GaiusJulius Caesar, as he launched chapter after chapter onto Scribd. I devoured each in absolute aweof anyone who could absorb history in such fine detail and then turn it around and personalize itin such a way, that you could actually believe Caesar himself to be the author. Now, the book isout in hardcover and I am no less impressed by Mr. Katz¶s ability to reveal his strengths as anauthor. The book begins just so: I Gaius Julius Caesar, Imperator, Pontifex, Maximus, Dictator,Perpetvo, Conqueror of Gaul, Descendent of the Goddess Venus, and Anchises of Troy, do nowcommence to relay to posterity the events of my life as I recollect them. And so he does. Katzstarts in Caesar¶s childhood, introduces us to life in the suburba, gives us a taste of his family andculture. He then captures the brutality of war, the conundrums of politics and the sense of historythis man was making. (But not before indulging us in a brief chapter set in modern day when thismemoir is revealed to scholars for the first time.) To do this by rewriting other works is onething. To personalize it as if writing a real diary is an amazing feat all together. Thebibliography, Appendix and Glossary are filled to the brim. It is simply so impressive how PhilipKatz not only took on this topic, but made it his own through an enormous amount of hard work and hard writing. He is to be applauded for creating ³A Fictional Recreation of the Life of theGreatest of All Romans.´
 
 
Roman history as a compelling tale of one Man's life., February 20, 2011
By Brian Heffron, KLCS TV, LA, Calif.littlehouse writer "the littlehouse"(Los Angeles, CA) -See all my reviews  This review is from:Imperator (Hardcover) This is the most interesting book about ancient Rome that I have ever come across. Thereason is that it is so accessible. The writer has obviously devoured vast amounts of Romanhistory, and Caesar's story specifically. His research is our gain as the book weaves awonderful tale that once you start you cannot put down. Caesar becomes a flesh and bloodperson before your eyes. His courage, his organization, his far seeing political abilities allcome to life on these pages. Really just a great, involving read. Highly recommended!
Synopsis
From Western civilization¶s greatest empire came history¶s most gifted and accomplished man.Emerging from a society populated by powerful men with great ambitions, against a backdrop of social change and political upheaval, one man stood as a giant among men. Almost more than aman, he was an irresistible force of nature."Imperator ± The Life of Gaius Julius Caesar" by Philip Katz is a fictional recreation of the lifeof the greatest of all Romans, Gaius Julius Caesar. It is a personal memoir, the inside story of hisworld as viewed through his eyes, written in the first person, suppressed by Caesar¶s successors,only to be rediscovered in modern times.Born to one of Rome¶s most prestigious families, Caesar went on to conquer all of WesternEurope in the name of Rome. He then conquered Rome to liberate his countrymen from a corruptSenate. Caesar¶s energy, intellect, and desire for achievement brought him the jealousy andanimosity of his peers along with enormous political opposition. Ultimately, his fight against thecorrupt, political establishment and his quest for a more sustainable society brought him intodirect conflict with the ruling class of Rome.Gaius Julius Caesar begins writing his life story on the heels of the Alexandrian war whilespending some time on the Nile in the company of Cleopatra, Queen and Pharaoh of Egypt,
