This is mostly a picture book. It is in dictionary form, with three dictionaries, one each for Classical, Celtic, and Norse myths. Many of the illustrations are lavish and excellent, including oil paintings, museum pieces, and story-book illistrations circa 1900. Other illustrations (about a third) are meritless; evidently drawn to fill up space in the book. The text covers major entries that could be found in any dictionary of mythology, but falls severely short on minor characters and places.

The book introduces the Norse deities in a strict to the point manner, as well as many Slavic dieties such as: Baba Yaga, Veles . You may be interested in. The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Mythology.

Since the dawn of time mankind has been fascinated with myth & mythology because there were so many mysteries,in so many fundamental, unanswered questions.
Where does the sun go each night? Why is it able to reappear every morning? What is the strange force which permeates the living world in spring, bringing forth green shoots from the earth and blossom from the bare branches? Why does the sea become so angry as a large wave that it then seems to stop and fall back asleep?
Before the days of scientific enquiry we filled in the gaps our knowledge with all sorts stories of natural spirits, tree nymphs and water sprites. We worshipped the heavens with gods and goddesses who would hurl bolts of lightning at each other and make the sky quake with thunderous blows. Zeus was the almighty battling daily with monsters about him. Succumb to your imagination and venture into a realm where everything around you isn't quite as what it seems and live out of your dreams in a world schrouded with magic and myth of fantasy in which this books takes you readers into different worlds full of mythical beings with magic all around them and travel in your imaginative head through the legends of the ancient worlds, from Greece, Rome, Egypt to the Norse and Celtic lands, through Persia and India to China and the far East. This book is a comprehensive A to Z of the classic stories of gods and goddesses, heroes and mythical beasts, wizards and warriors. Ancient mythologies brought to life in the most comprehensive coverage. Amazing pictures depict the myth in true reality of colour that abounds crossing with every culture, reaching in every myth, in which it serves anyone as their main mythological reference point of view for reading. An invaluable resource book that's in the end packed with photos and illustrations of bringing back to life the ancient world again of mythology which is both a blessing and a curse to the people in countrys around the world.

I got this book for my 10-year old niece for Christmas. Granted she's an avid reader, but I was SHOCKED when it arrived and I realized just how thorough (read: HUGE) this book is! Holy cow you could knock a man out with a swing to the head with this sucker! I was a little embarassed that it was so large and thought it would be intimidating to my niece, but much to my surprise, she LOVED it!

Although this was a library book, it goes beyond meeting my expectations. I purchased this after hearing my 7 year old nephew was extremely interested in mythology. Being that this is his Christmas present I am so happy with my purchase and I know my nephew is going to love it. I highly recommend this buyer and will also use this buyer for future purchases. Thanks!

Ordered this book for my husband and he really enjoyed the read.

Coverage is good, but I am not sure of the intent of the book:
- Book is grouped by area, more than religion, so things get a little messy.
- It's organized in alphabetical order making it hard to follow the mythology
- Such organization would be fine for a reference book, but because it is trying to cover too much material each entry is very short and not super informative.
Overall I would not recommend this book. If you are interested in ancient civilizations' mythologies, you should probably go with more specific books for each, rather than this half baked aggregate
