Product Description

Review


"I have been using this text since it was first published, and I think it's the best we've ever had for our course in World Mythology."--Angela Ruediger, Harrisburg Area Community College


"Introduction to Mythology does a really good job of balancing mythology with actual stories. The book is well organized, the margin notes are exceptionally relevant and helpful to students, and the text also includes excellent tables, photos, and a timeline."--Bruce Peppard, El Camino College


"This is the best anthology of myth and folklore that I have yet found at the survey level. It demonstrates that the study of myth and folklore is a serious endeavor and an on-going conversation among great thinkers."--Cynthia Kimball, Portland Community College

The book is a confusing mess. It makes references but rarely contains the very myths it talks about, making it useless by itself.

Contains spelling errors, punctuation errors and is formatted horribly.

I had to get this for an online college course. It is not worth it. Go find it somewhere else for cheaper or free. I spent 100$ on this thing and I am not happy with it.
