Don't read this book if you just want a list of pharaohs and what they did (or said they did). Don't read this book if you want to read a lot of generalisations about ancient Egypt, most of which don't stand up to much scrutiny.
Do read this book if you want to understand the 'real' history of ancient Egypt, where the underlying reasons for famous events are explored, and the evidence carefully balanced, by leading scholars in the field.
