    Meet the Man You Thought You Knew

    This intriguing story of a complex man of history will keep you reading for more. If you thought you knew Howard Carter and his life, this book will redefine this artistic man in a science being defined and refined. Politics, intrigue, personalities, and Egypt, the country, will keep you wondering if there is more to learn.

    GREAT STORY TO FOLLOW AND BECOME INVOLVED IN: This is a very go

    GREAT STORY TO FOLLOW AND BECOME INVOLVED IN: This is a very good book for people that do not know the entire story of Howard Carter and the story behind the quest for the Tomb of Tut. It is well written, not difficult to follow and provides just enough detail that it does not bore you yet keeps you interested. Depsite the attitudes of many regard Carter and his "lower social status," as you read this book, you come to realize he was self taught, hard driven and was much more knowledgable about Egypt than the "educated professionals" of the time.

    If you want to read about his work in the Tomb of Tut, this is not the book to purchase. This one builds up to the discover and basically ends with the fanfair following his statement, "I see many wonderful things." Highly recommend for those interested in not only Tut and archaeology, but basic adventure stories regarding quests of exploration and discover.
