I am and have always been, a great fan of Bauval's & Hancock's work. However, I was very disappointed to find that The Master Game is, to a large extent, a re-vamp of their 2004 book entitled, Talisman. The headings and Chapters are identical, yet there is no reference, on the front or the back of The Master Game, to the 2004 book. This is mis-leading and somewhat cynical, especially to readers who have already read and own Talisman. That said, Talisman was an excellent book and for those readers who have not read it, they will find The Master Game, with its additional material, informative, interesting and a bold challenge to the "status quo".
