Cox (Cracking the Da Vinci Code) states that this volume is not intended as an essential Egyptology reference. Instead, he and Davies (contributor, Dan Brown Companion) present a wide-angle approach by deftly interweaving traditional and alternate subject histories. While many of the facts are drawn from Redford's Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt, all of the 54 A-to-Z, multipage entries are rich with illustrative anecdotes and vivid descriptions. Although not bearing academic rigor, the book has a warm, balanced approach that is perfect for the lay reader. Recommended for general collections.
