A great book to read if you want to learn about Greek/Roman mythology in a summarized/third person format. It has a couple of "outdated" words, but still good to understand at. I'd recommend it to anybody who loves the tales of the Olympian Gods and the Greek Heroes enduring their perilous adventures.
