Editorial Reviews

HISTORY introduces INSTANT EXPERT, an exciting new line of titles offering on-the-spot knowledge to students and lifelong learners on a wide variety of topics.

Long before the Romans built their first mud huts, ancient Egypt's mighty pharaohs began commissioning and building monumental masterpieces whose scale, beauty, and sophistication still boggle the mind. Through cutting-edge digital graphics and interviews with noted Egyptologists, EGYPT explores the civilization's awe-inspiring engineering accomplishments, chronicling the pharaohs and feats that helped build the world s fist superpower. As Egypt's pharaohs conquered and ceded vast expanses of land, they pushed their royal architects to stretch the boundaries of imagination and human potential. HISTORY follows their empire's development, from the First Dynasty of 3000 BC through the last days of the reign of Ramses the Great in 1212 BC, from dazzling obelisks to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Hosted by actor and art historian Peter Weller.

This product is the History Channel's "Engineering an Empire: Egypt" television show repackaged with a different name. It's a good historical look at building technology in Ancient Egypt and has great CGI to accompany the explanations, but it's not new content. I'd buy the Engineering an Empire episode off of iTunes instead and save $10 or more.
