Many of the Myths and Legends can be hard to decipher and really get to grips with this book has helped me to understand what they are and how they were and are veiwed. I am using it as part of the Druidic course I am doing. Well worth getting I am very happy with it.

HASH(0x9e89c684) out of 5 stars Know what you are getting... 30 April 2002
By St. Amadeus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In case your one of the 96% who never really looks at the "size" of a book when you order it, make sure you do for this one. It's only a pocket version of Lady Gregory's book, and, although the website does not tell you so, this is an ABRIGDED version.
Just know what you're getting.

HASH(0x9e8c7c0c) out of 5 stars Decent translation, but "compiled" 31 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read this book and find that the first part is fairly accurate when I compare it with other translations of the stories about Finn and the Fianna. However, I read the notes section for the stories about Cuchulain and noticed that Lady Gregory states that she compiled these stories, while the book jacket states she translated them. Unfortunately she has used several different sources for one of my favorite tales (Deirdre and Naoise) and it makes me wonder how accurate her version of this tale is. She has some elements in the ending that I have found attributed to later versions of the tale (she uses the later version of Deirdre stabbing herself instead of her dashing her head on the rocks), but the fact that she admits in her notes to editing and compiling the tales as she sees fit makes me wonder what else she edited because she didn't like. Personally, I am searching for a translation that is more accurate when it comes to Irish tales, because I feel that the original meaning becomes muddled when tales are edited to match a person's taste.

HASH(0x9ed18be8) out of 5 stars Not the edition you're looking for 12 Oct. 2005
By Labhrás Mac Muiris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This edition offers only a small selection of Lady Gregory's _Gods and Fighting Men_, plus the book itself is about 2" by 4". In other words, this book is really a souvenir--not a text to be read. You probably want to get the full text of _Gods and Fighting Men_ instead.

HASH(0x9e8c715c) out of 5 stars Really Really Small 24 Jan. 2009
By Benjamin T. Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was incredibly surprised and disappointed when I received this book in the mail. I had ordered it for my wife's birthday and couldn't believe how small it was. I wish I had had some warning. She finished reading it in about 10 minutes.

HASH(0x9eab8a98) out of 5 stars This is a tiny little 1 inch book. 15 Jan. 2008
By Topaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
FYI...this book is about an inch and a half square. This is like a keychain size book. You can't really tell that from the picture.
