List of events

The writing provided more of a list of individuals and events rather than the stories that linked them together. I did not find the book very enjoyable or engaging.

Not to be heard

The book is better in written hard form. Reading of lists is better than listening to them. Obviously since it is so short a lot of material has to be eliminated. Most people would read this for a quick insight of popular history. Many of the popular concerns especially regarding Ramses the Great are not covered.
The narrator mispronounced basic English words neither using American or British pronunciations so how can I be confident in the Egyptian terms

Bought it for research on a story I am writing and it is very informative. Egyptian mythology is convoluted and other sources just weren't making things clear to me, this book gave me all the answers I was looking for.

This Book Is Amazing

Any additional comments?

This book is amazing. It is large and will take time for you to get through. But this is the most accurate book about the Egyptian Civilization. It also has chapters about the early beginnings of man and womankind. This book explains history in a way that no other group or book has the guts to. It is honest and does not censor things out of religious prudence.

I would recommend this to anyone who seeks the truth, enjoys excellent writing, and has a desire to go beyond the simple, common place historical explanations and omissions that one is subjected to whenever one delves into the taboo subject of humanity's true origins.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the most interesting subjects I have ever read about. I am amazed with Egypt, Mythology, Greece, Rome, and the influence it has had on our lives still today. We truly don't know that some of our beliefs stem from Ancient Egypt.
