This review is from: The Ark Before Noah: Decoding the Story of the Flood (Paperback)
Fascinating stuff, written with wit, enthusiasm and authority. I did get confused now and again about which tablet version was from where and when, but that's my fault not the author's. If you have an interest in the history of the middle eastern flood myths then this book is for you. I know he's been doing this all his working life, but the knowledge and insight of Irving Finkel is mind blowing - it's difficult to imagine that another non-academic book on the subject could surpass it.
And it has a surprising link to the kids TV show The Double Deckers!
Great man. Great book.
