By the time you are finished with this part, you will have a good appreciation for the nature of Greek mythology and the gods, monsters, and heroes which populate it.

Manuscript two is Egyptian Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters and Mortals.

This manuscript is broken into three parts:

  • Fantastic images - ancient Egyptian myths and legends as we know them today.
  • Factual history - covering pre-history through classical antiquity.
  • Unraveling myth - looking at Egyptian mythology from a fresh perspective.

Lastly, we will go into the part about Norse mythology which contains a fascinating look at the beliefs of the Vikings. Listen to this audiobook!

Juvenile introduction to mythology

A juvenile introduction to mythology with idiotic theories about ancient flying machines, and submarines in the Nile river.

This book would be a suitable, but very basic introduction to the mythologies of these three cultures, if it weren't for constant interjections of unverifiable flights of fancy about Atlantis, ancient flying machines & submarines, praising climate change, and other conspiracy theory dreck. In that regard, this book is less of an introduction to mythology, and more of an introduction to pseudo-science, conspiracy theory, and above all else: a mere propaganda vehicle for Rod Martin Jr.'s baseless dreams of the ancient world (he is referenced far too frequently by the author throughout this book). If you want an introduction to these mythologies, there are far better books. However, if you want to be introduced to the world of wild, baseless speculation, and flights of non-empirical fantasy, then this may be the book to get you started with misinforming your own mind.
