Decent starting point
Having read another book (paper - owned) on this topic I was interest to see what this book would provide. Not bad really. If you only wanted a quick "blerb" then you could stop at the email. Want more detail? Then follow the links.

A little too technical. All the foreign words and pronunciations made it difficult for me to read. The initial part was probably all I needed to know. I switched to Bulfinch's Mythology.

written by a non-native english speaker or perhaps poorly translated from another language? sloppy, not covering the basics but going into great needless detail elsewhere. not all that informative--skip this read!
