2.0 out of 5 stars Packed with information but ..., December 4, 2006
while the author tried very hard to be objective, I had a strong feeling that he colored his description of ancient Egyptian royalty with his own beliefs. The book is very descriptive about the lives of the kings as is currently believed, for instance, but, while he insinuated women had a decent amount of power and said they had pyramids of their own, their lives were glossed over. Every human culture has two halves with stories to tell, not just one half.

Otherwise, the book is very dry and might be useful as a textbook but is not for the casual reader seeking to learn. Zahi Hawass seems to be a very good scientist but a poor author.
