An excellent book which give an answer to many of the questions about the Nile navigation: construction of the Cook empire, names of the ships navigationg on the Nile up to Wadi Halfa, competition between companies, how did these mythic ships disappear? A large piece of history of this romantic tourism of the two last centuries...Really to be read with great interest! Original photos of the utmost interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic facts, 23 Aug. 2010
This book is a good base for non-beginners in Egyptology. It gives a lot of facts about the Theban Tombs. However, it is too simple for specialists. As the price is reasonable, why not consider its buying?

4.0 out of 5 stars New data on Giza Pyramids, 27 Nov. 2009
This book is based on the personal experience of the author: one part is extremely interesting, as Andrew Collins has gathered a lot of very interesting new informations on Gebel Qibli and it's role in relation with the big three; particularly helpful are the new "possible" data on the orientation of the three egyptian pyramids; the exploration of caves is a real "slice" of archeology. What is perhaps more doubtful is the "dream" of his friend Quayce, that a scientific person has always a great difficulty to accept (esoterism?).
