Simply, the best book on Roman Mythology

I listen to this as an introduction to Roman mythology and it's a clearly written book that will serve handy as a reference. It's best to be picked up and read story by story every now and then rather than straight through.

Useful Book

This book flows easily from one story to the next. She gives you a clear explanation of who each god/goddess was and what they represented. Their family trees are given but she also explains it throughout the book. Overall, it's a very nice book.

Good Choice

The audiobook is exactly what was expected. However, the cover was not on correctly which led to some unfortunate creasing. Thankfully it was mostly on the back fold.

Its awesome Study

A great way to learn about Roman mythology. I read several mythology books so far and this is by far the best one. Easy to understand and the author does a great a job at giving brief history introduction regarding each story. I would recommend it.

It's a pretty good quick reference for study, which I think is what it was written for. I guess another way to look at it would be a collection of short stories.
