Being a novice in this area of collecting, I have written to the author on a few occasions requesting his opinion and have always received kind, prompt, and helpful advise.
I have all volumes of RIC and Sear's books (including the two volumes on Byzantine coinage) that cost me many, many times more than this one. On a few occasions, I have even found types missing in Sears's catalogs in ERIC II. The author is to be commended for creating a single-volume work at such an affordable price. For the price it is being offered at, given the sheer quality of its contents and printing, I would call it an absolute steal! If you collect Roman Imperial coins, please do yourself a favour and get this wonderful reference while you still can.
The historical writeup were short. More relevant information relating to the specific person on the coin and political/economic conditions of the time would be interesting. As an example, for each coin I would like to know the number needed to purchase a roman loaf of bread and soldier's monthly pay.
