Although the authors are two men, Leeming, a professor of English and Mythology, and Page, a science writer and novelistÑthey believe the story of Goddess belongs to and is important to everyone, regardless of gender. And, their intent, to present a "coherent tale of Goddess," is successfully realized without entering into gender politics.
With short stories, and equally short introductions, the reader is introduced to all the favorites as well as many lessor-known Goddesses such as the Apache "Vagina Girls."
For in-depth detail on the Goddesses, one must go to other books, but while reading this overall "biography" of the archetype, one can begin to sense the unity of the archetype that has existed in all parts of the world with that which is within.

This book, and its companion, God, are excellent sources for all people who are exploring their spirituality, and even better for those that aren't. The authors present their brief introductions to the Goddess concept and let short retellings from world mythology supply their evidence, a system which both helps the book flow and makes the reader a more apt critic of the authors' interpretations of the myth. Granted, the retellings are short and the book's subject matter is too broad to be discussed in depth, but it presents its ideas of coherence and unity powerfully and respectfully, satisfying to both the mind and the soul. I recommend it wholeheartedly, especially if you are a Neopagan, this book makes an excellent outsiders' view of a subject dear to our hearts.

I really think this book was a waste of money. There was little information/myths on goddesses and it was all spread out. I just need to sell it.
