If you have been to or going to the exhibition at the 02 this is basically the identical book (same ISBN) as they are selling in the gift shop for £35.00. The only difference is that the Amazon one does not have the Omar Sharif audio disk included and it has a different slipcover. In my opinion the audio is great when you are actually walking round the exhibition but standalone it is of no great shakes. This book is a great souvenir of the exhibition, maybe not the most educational but beautifully photographed, would grace any coffee table! Save your cash go to the exhibition and buy the book on line!

i bought this for my girlfriend for an extra christmas present. although i am yet to delve in properly, it has a great collection of images and the text is easy to read, broken down well and complimented by maps of burial sites etc. the only faults i can bring up, are that the information about tutunkhamun himself is a bit limited and most of the book describes of the treasures found. still an interesting read and what there is of a high quality, especially the photos which are highly detailed.

i only spent 14.99 on this elsewhere other than amazon, so it's well worth the money spent. hence why the 5 stars :)

This is a wonderful book packed with sumptuous photographs - most of them a whole page in size so you can really see all the details of the artifacts. I also thought the information was imparted in an easy-to-read way. This is a big beautiful book - well worth the money.

Having just purchased this book for under £3.00, (used including p&p & perfect condition) I'm very pleased with it. It's difficult to find anything impressive after studying this subject for over 20 years, books,dvds etc; but every book differs in quality of photography and information. I think the author is well versed with his country's past and conveys it very clearly. He also gives a narrative of the tomb's discovery with informative extracts from Howard Carter's work and his book. There is nothing to compare to seeing these treasures in Egypt in their full splendour as I have been fortunate to do, but books such as this are a good start to a fascinating subject. An excellent book and well worth buying.

This is a glossy and superficial book which makes an OK souvenir, and the sort of thing to have on hand when you spend time in the loo.

Does Zahi Hawass really write this stuff? I thought he was an Egyptologist with a job to do. Instead his name is on every flippin' book and documentary coming out of Egypt -- he is a one-man self-publicizing campaign. And the text is no good anyway, though the pictures, taken by somebody else, are OK.

I bought it as a present for my husband. Lovely pictures. Substance? - I don't know, but the present was much appreciated.
