So I'd recommend this book for the work on its title subject, but keep your conclusions in reserve on the rest.
10/26/2014 - Addendum - Dr Aidan Dodson has pointed out in his new book, "Amarna Sunrise" that if Akhenaten and Nefertiti were 1st cousins (Akhenaten being the son of Queen Tiye and Nefertiti being the daughter of Tiye's brother), the DNA results would be similar to those of siblings. Given the difficulty with getting accurate results from ancient DNA, this makes the theory that "Younger Lady" is Nefertiti at least possible.
As noted by other reviewers, there are positions taken which are arguably unsupported by the evidence or by current discoveries. Kozloff's proposed scenario of Egypt's catastrophic decline beginning near the end of Amenhotep's reign, and deepening considerably under the four pharaohs who followed, does not appear to this reviewer to be in accord with the numerous building programs of Akhenaten and Tutankhamen, the unsurpassed stone carving during Ay's very short reign, and the amount of gold he used to bury Tutankhamen. We know both Ay and his successor Horemheb had large and elaborately painted royal tombs with finely carved hard-stone sarcophagi which do not augur for austerity.
A few of the black-and-white photos are indistinct, but all-in-all this is a book of uncommon insight and original perceptions, a scholarly work which makes the wonder of Ancient Egypt come alive. What the ancient world authentically was like, however, still remains a mystery.
