Cleopatra: A Life

I just read the biography Cleopatra: A Life, by Stacy Schiff, and I suggest it for those who want to know more about this great strategist and warrior.
Based on historical documents, the author attempts to separate the fiction from what really happened and, unlike other biographies I've read that focused more on the beauty of Cleopatra and her sex appeal, this one gives more importance to her political life, her power, government and love.

It deserves a spot on the bedside table for sure!
