First have to say this book is a little larger than ''Pocket Sized'' .This is a basic no nonsense guide to ''Greek and Roman Gods and Goddesses''. Simple to read with a small (but enough) explanation on each one. Each page (one per god/goddess) also includes a picture, statue or mosaic for means of identification. Shortish book as only contains 48 pages. Nicely bound and comes with a dust cover. I did buy this in the ''used - very good'' section and the book is like new as in straight from the book shop new. Would I recommend it ? yes as a starter copy but if you need more information on this topic I would recommend a more comprehensive issue.

I got this for my daughter when she was doing a Greek and Roman module at university as part of a music degree. She hadn't done any classics before and found this book handy as a reference to try and quickly get up to speed on Greek and Romam Gods and Godesses.
