Publisher's Summary

Cleopatra and Nefertiti are both known for their beauty. They are also known for traits having to do with their womanhood: the men with whom they were romantically involved, their ability to seduce.

This book gets beneath this surface to give a more complete picture. Cleopatra was ambitious and smart, while Nefertiti was much more active in her husband's reign than was usual for her time. Cleopatra's alliances were much more than romances, but played major roles in the global politics of the time. She was poised, with Antony, to command a large portion of the Mediterranean world. For her part, Nefertiti played a key role in the worship of the sun god, Aten, and a shocking switch from worshipping many gods to just one.

Michael Klein details the careers of these fascinating women and explores how many important events they were instrumental in. With thorough research, Cleopatra and Nefertiti: Beyond Their Beauty and Seduction will open your eyes to the strength and audacity of these two queens.

Gain insight into Cleopatra plotting against at least one of her siblings; how she won a bet against Antony; and Nefertiti driving her chariot down the streets of Egypt. You'll come away with a new respect for these historical figures.

    "the performance was very distracting"

    So, the book itself was ok...if you've done other research on these women, this book gave nothing new. but it was pleasant enough. However. ..the performance was something else. the reader had a good voice and good tempo, but must wear dentures...the constant whistling of his teeth was at times very distracting from the story. who did the casting and editing? surely this could have been corrected.
