A very descriptive guide

The author obviously did his homework before putting this book together. I found it be an intriguing amount of information. Although it was almost in the form on a verbal family tree. It did spark my interest in some of Matt's other books as well.

it's great to have in a bag for delivery

I guess this is very cool! It is a little bit small of an AUDIObook in original timing. However, it's great to have in a bag for delivery.

This is a comprehensive resource about Greek

This is a comprehensive resource, though, I was expecting to use it in the classroom and it is written higher than my middle schoolers. More just an FYI this audiobook is more info not really any stories.

This masterpiece one of the best books

This masterpiece one of the best books I have ever read or listen. Normally, Greek mythology is boring or do not mind or is fearful, though this was wonderful. It's a combination of different stories about gods, heroes, and stories regarding the gods. I believe anyone who is considering this book should positively listen to it.
