The goddess on the cover even has red stilettos. It doesn't go into huge detail on any one type of myth, but kind of flits around so that the reader gets a true sampling of world mythology. I love it because it doesn't just focus in on Greek and Roman mythology, but myths from all over the world. I read this book for a class, and I the assigned reading wasn't cover to cover, but I did end up reading most of it at some point.

Nancy Hathaway has written THE guide to mythology.Each article gives the corresponding name in other cultures of the god/ess we are talking about. So no more going back and forth to the index to find out which is which. Along with why they appealed to their particular culture is information on how they affected people in later generations. I partiuclarly enjoy the thoughtful humor interspersed that catches you with immediate application giving the reading a 'keep on reading' value. And let's face it, we all need something to keep us on track with all those figures that seem so unreal and yet interesting. HAC

Easy to understand. Great for people who need to learn for a class or are just casually interested in Greek mythology. However there are a lot of discrepancies between this book and more scholarly collections of Greek mythology. Small things, but to someone who knows details of stories, to see them left out or misinterpreted is irksome. Guess it just depends on whose retelling of classics you decide is the standard.

My mythology class uses this book-- really a good book for a good price (:

It's also really well organized: by the different types of story.

Just a quick note on the Kindle edition, the index is horrible and there are no page numbers.

Great book. Very quick delivery although the product did come with a WHOLE BUNCH of ants in the box with the book. Very gross discovery. Other than that great buy.

This a really good and fun read. It's a lot easier to read than any of the books on mythology that I've ever read, which were quite a few! It makes you realize how much in this world is named after gods, goddesses, and heroes, from the Orpheum Theatre (which I found out is a contradiction!) to Troy's Greek Restaurant. Ms. Hathaway shows how different cultures from all over the world have the same stories with similar characters with similar names. It gives you goosebumps! While this is an easier book to read, it lacks all the drama that all those heavy mythology books have. Her book touches base with most of mythology so there is no deep study of any god or goddess. Ms. Hathaway covers not only the Greeks but Celtic, Chinese, and Norse mythology as well. The only thing that I have to say negative about the book were all the typos! There is a plethora of typos in this book. But if you're looking for a quick intro into mythology, this is your book.
