This was the most comprehensive and useful book of its kind. I was very pleased with it!

Very well done. A rare find. There was much more history than the titles might lead you to believe, but mythologies are better understood in their historical context anyway.

Way off Topic causing me to get a refund

I would never have bought this audio book if I could have looked at a hard copy. The book doesn't get to real mythology until Chapter 8. There is tons of interesting information here, throw n at you very fast. There is too much cross cultural comparison with Indian, Greek, Egyptian, Celtic, etc.... .myths. There is way too much meandering from the myths of Babylon. The reading is very dry. At times I felt the reader was running a race to get to the end. I didn't hear much love or fascination for the topic.
