    1. Fairly good resource on The Egyptian pantheon. I came to this book looking to deepen my references for teaching Egyptian art history. For a reader with no prior knowledge in the field I think this book may be cumbersome. My only complaint is that I wish there were more corresponding illustrations for the deities, however I was able to access other resources to give visual substance to the descriptions.

    2. I can't say anything about the accuracy or comprehensiveness, being a n00b at this stuff, but it is damned interesting, and has concise entries on many of the mythical thingies in the mythological thinginess.

    3. The book itself is good. My only complaint is the amount of typos in the Kindle version. It needs editing to remove them.
