I liked this book. I know lots of bits and pieces of Greek mythology, but I've never gotten the full picture; who is whose child, who did what and so on. I wanted the basic information in a simple read so that I could get an overview before reading more specific mythological stories. This did the job. It was very straight forward and gave me all the base facts that helped me connect all the mythological stories I have already read this past year together. I found that having read mythology already helped. If I hadn't I might have been a little overwhelmed from the sheer amount of information. But if you have some background in the subject this book is very easy to get through. Really it's just a way to connect all the dots. ( )
