    Badly written, very glossy

    First, my main complaint with this book: it's way too glossy. It often spends more than a page talking about short, insignificant events, but totally glosses over pivotal ones. Second issue is the fact that the writer sounds like a confused undergraduate student. Writing is, at times grammatically ambiguous (misplaced or missing commas, run-on sentences, etc...), at other times is simply incomprehensible. If you're not interested in Greek mythology as just a set of fairy tales, you will probably not enjoy this book - it sounds more like a bad Master's thesis. The only reason I'm giving this book 2 stars is that the price is right.

    A good and helpful book

    Technically, the book was not written well, because it contains grammatical errors and not a huge variety of vocabulary. However, as a student, this book proved to be very helpful. The art is wonderful, and the stories are fascinating.
