The book really shows just how related a large branch of humanity is and just how similar the legends of people as "different" as the Welsh and Persians really are.
Must reading for anyone interested in the Old Religion.
Another edition is needed, but I would challenge the author, if he is healthy enough, to consider series of illustrated lectures, in the way of Kenneth Clark's "Civilisation", as the material lends itself to the visual.
Pro: The author exhaustively shows us similarities in indoeuropean mythological figures, each of which are fascinating in their own right, but add up to a glimpse into the mythology of the Aryan people before they swept out of southern Russia / Ukraine and admixed into numerous other peoples. As an amateur of the field it seems shocking that Davey isn't more well regarded.
