    A fascinating and fact filled book

    The author weaves a wonderful fabric of scientific accuracy & historical nuance; skillfully balancing the empirical with the phenomenological. despite being filled with interdisciplinary science and a complex time-line, the text is easily understandable and engrossing. Excellent read!

    I used this book to write a thesis for my History class and it gave me everything that I needed to write a decent historical paper. All the information I needed that I had found on other sites or in other books were in this book and further evaluated; after reading the book I had all the facts and personal opinions I needed to complete my paper. I recommend this book for anyone writing a report on the Oracle of Delphi or anyone interested in the Oracle's history; you will learn everything there is to learn with this book for sure.
