Since the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in the early 19th century the world has been fascinated by one of the oldest empirical civilizations, and for good reason.

Misleading Title...

So for starters, the narrator pronounces "worship" like "war ship" and it is INFURIATING. I could probably overlook it, but for the fact that this isn't really a book of Egyptian mythology. It essentially tells two myths, lists some of the deities, and then launches into explanations of Egyptian funerary rites, warfare, slavery, etc. I like learning about ancient Egypt and it was on sale so I can suffer through it for a hour and a half or whatever, but if you pay more than a dollar or so for it, you should know what you're getting.

An Excellent Introduction to Greek Mythology!!!!

Excellent book. Maybe a bibliography with sections on the internet which offer more details would have been better

Religious Beliefs Of The Egyptians

You get the fragments of beliefs put together that the Egyptians knew but never left he specific tale so we have references and outside sources the fill in the religious literature of the Egyptian world view here in this book. Complexity is simplified for the commune person and understandable.

Great Foundation

This is a wonderful presentation of ancient Egyptian religion. The author opens with a detailed account of religious practice and the ritual of death, tracing its regional variants and historical development. Next, he presents a complete, detailed encyclopedia of the pantheon.

Egypt

I love Egyptian mythology, but I really just use it for reference when I need it. Some of the other sections on the origins of the deities and such are great information as well.
