Publisher's Summary

From what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing - hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.

In this audiobook, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet - Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them. Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species.

    The book was clear and compact, required when being carried to a new topic. which often strengthened early statements. Recommended to anyone as a starting point for the study on Egyptian life.

    "Looks good..."

    It’s astonishing how well rounded and trained the Egyptians were when it came to their principles of Ma’at. This guide also includes the Egyptian soul, pyramids, and so much more. I highly recommend this guide for anyone interested in reading about Egyptian Mythology.

    "A Brief Explanation "

    This book has given a brief explanation of the major gods of ancient Egypt and some of their stories. It was an easy read that gave me just enough background to prepare me for a more serious study of ancient Egypt.

    "the myths and legends. "
    Any additional comments?

    Among the many fascinating facts I learned was that while Egypt as a land borders on the Mediterranean Sea, and certainly the ancient Egyptians were familiar with boating up and down the Nile, they were not seafaring in the traditional sense, and had no God/Goddess of the Sea.

    I really enjoy this book. It's described as a story which makes it more fun, and easier to understand! It is for beginners or even children. I'm 32 and don't mind listening to it one bit. It's knowledgeable and you can enjoy it as well at the same time.

    While I wish they used Egyptian rubrics for the artistic depictions, it does a good job of presenting Egyptian mythology without being so much over. I love that they use the Egyptian names instead of the Greek, as well.

    I was always so overwhelmed by Egypt and its mythology. The way how Egyptians lived, what they knew about life, Gods, even death. They knew how to build the pyramids by the time when was no technology. They know so much about life, love, emotions, nature and much more. This book is more about Gods, beliefs, their religion.

    This is a nice introduction to the Egyptian Mythology. The way this book is represented is really cool. It is described as a story but yet broken into sections of the different Gods/Goddesses. It is fun to read the Egyptian Myths of creation, and also learn about each deity individually.

    This book is a good introduction to Egyptian mythology, and I completely enjoyed it. It covers different stories, each about a different god, that tell the story from the gods' point a view. The Narrator has done a good job as well.

    The book can serve you if you want comprehensive information about ancient Kemet. Egyptian mythology will help anyone that needs to know the Kemetian deities, which are real energies. The author also shows the energies in a way that benefits the metaphysical mind. I enjoyed it.

    It began out a bit slow, yet once he got to telling of the lore of the Gods, it got better and better as it went. Those who love history will like the flow of the book, historians will find it to be remarkably fascinating, and if you are both, this is a must have book.
