Very good description of all the major Greek myths and those few Roman ones which are not directly taken from the Greek. If I had a quibble its that some of the stories are at least partially retold at various points - however I assume that's because the author doesn't expect people to read this cover to cover but to dip in and out of the various sections and so needs each section to stand alone. If you don't already have a compendium of the ancient myths this is essential ( )
