Not quite the finished article

Yes, it's a dictionary of classical mythology, but that's about all you get. I would like to have had an introduction and a guide to pronunciation. Furthermore, there is no explanation for the structure of the genealogy charts at the back apart from cryptic notes such as 'See chart six' when you are looking at chart one. No complaints with the quality of the entries though; all those I have looked at seem excellent. You just feel there are a few elements missing here though. Another reviewer is quite right - old Graves is hard to beat.
