4.0 out of 5 stars a good companion to classics
If you wanted to appear erudite when Classical mythology was mentioned, or felt embarrassed when Classical references were made in any literary form and you failed to pick it up, this is the work which should help you do better next time! Not an exciting opus, but a tremendously useful addition to your library.

2.0 out of 5 stars OUCH!!!
I love Greek mythology but didn't love this book. There were factual errors, and the writers attention wandered. Switching from nature to geography, and from gods to titans mid sentence, meant it didn't flow as it should. Little structure and I found it disappointing and boring. (Something I never thought I'd say about Greek Mythology). There's better. Don't reccomend.

A good round-up of many of the world myths with a well thought-out structure. Useful as a reference guide if you're not already familiar with this stuff.
