Recommendation for a Good Book on Ancient Rome?

Can any of you recommend a good book on the history of Ancient Rome?

You might want to check out the 6 volume set by Edward Gibbon, "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire". I haven't read it but it does seem to get good reviews. As the title refers to the "Roman Empire" it may not cover as much history of Rome as you are looking for. Just a suggestion. :)

Rome: The Autobiography (edited by Jon E. Lewis)

It's a great text for primary sources with some commentary :)
