My problem with the book, though, is that it contains a lot of typographical mistakes and other incorrect information, incl. the misspelling "Potlemy" for "Ptolemy" (I saw at least one instance), and the really hair-raising "Phoetus" (sic twice) which is said to be one of the two satellites of Mars (the other being Deimos, which is correct). The Old Norse god "Wodan" was really "Odinn" (or "Óðinn"), "Freya" is normally known as "Freyja"; the Latin forms "Jove", "Saturni", "Veneris" and "Martis" on the same page should be changed into respective nominatives, whereas the names "Sun's day", "Moon's day" etc. that are called "Saxon" are just confusing. "Capricornus" emphatically does not mean "goat with horns" (p. 65). A number of explanations are so brief that they are essentially useless for a person who is not already familiar with them. These include "Pantheon, Gods of the", which for some reason only discusses Semitic gods, "Pavanna" (ibid.), which does not even tell the reader from which culture this god is taken, or "SOL-om-on" on p. 406, etc. A number of tables cover years that are already history, and, even though nowadays much accurate information can be found online, if these tables could be updated in the next edition of the book (which, I hope, will appear some day), it would make the book more attractive. I would have given this book more stars, if not for all the incorrection information.
