This is a very complete account of Greek myth. With close to 800 pages fully indexed it is easy to locate the stories of the individual gods or heroes you might be searching for. The text has some decent quality black & white images, but they are not the reason to buy this book. It's all about the stories. I've been teaching myth on the college level for 10 years now and have not found a nicer or more complete text accounting of Greek myths. This book also includes lots of genealogical charts so that you can trace the family histories of gods and human heroes.

This might not be a text for the casual reader of myth or for the lover of myth for two reasons: first the stories are mostly detailed summaries taken from the various sources. Reading the account of Agamemnon in this text is NOT the same as reading Aeschylus. The fluid and often beautiful words of Aeschylus are NOT here; a high quality summary of the original stories is presented. Secondly, this text includes variant myths. That is to say that often myths come in multiple versions, not all of which agree on the details. In order to place all of the mainstream myths and all of the variants into a single text the editors have chosen to place the variants into a smaller typeface, which is fine with me. This method immediately alerts the reader that he/she is getting into the side channels of mythic developments and one might want to skip over such materials because this is a very large text.

Overall, this a very good collection of Greek myths. I don't know of any other resource of equal breadth in a single volume.

You just cannot talk about art history if you don't have one of this. Very useful. I wish it had more images.

I bought this book in order to have an updated version of Rose's book, but it is not that. It's good enough, but the price is prohibitive, especially since my Rose paperback was < $2.00.

Overall good book with lots of information but it has more potential for kindle users if it was indexed so we could search it.

Whilst this is a fantastic resource and good for looking things up, it lacks cohesion nor does it set out themes and myths in a simple and easily digestible fashion.

If you want to learn more on Mythology, this book can help, yet might be a little confusing for someone who never studied mythology.
The myths are simplified, yet scattered when presenting other tales that are similar.
Also, Roman, Greek, Babylonian etc equivalents, and variations. Also a great details of a close linkage to each deity, and human heroes, and heroines.

I was surprised this is a college book. I found this handbook by chance;I requested it for the Library, and tried to hold on to it for as a long as possible, but I just finally broke down and bought it. lol.
I also agree, it lacks cohesion. Nevertheless, a great book for those who want to learn more on mythology.
The Kindle edition is atrocious - no table of contents, no indexing, no each engine. How can a handbook be used without one or all of these? I am annoyed because I was about to rent for 6 months on the assumption that it was the same as the print edition which seems to be fine.
This shoddy and cavalier approach to Kindle by the publisher is simply not good enough!
