    This book is not great on detail but it gives a good overview of mythologies from various world cultures not just Greek and Roman which many such books have done in the past A detailed coverage of world mythology can be found in Donna Rosenberg’s treatment of the subject World Mythology An Anthology of Great Myths and Epics However Rosenberg’s book lacks the uality illustrations and images that this book providesI hope you find my review helpful
