    As a student, I have found this book extremely handy. I'm doing a research project, and having all of the classic myths neatly organized into one volume makes it very convenient. I started out by Googling each myth and character separately, but it quickly became too tedious. I have also lent my iPad to my father, who is an avid reader and writer, and he was quite impressed with this collection. I feel that everybody could take something away from these myths.

    This ebook is an excellent source for understanding and appreciating the legends and myths of ancient Greece and Rome. Well researched, the ebook reviews the fables in clear, simple prose. While I have not finished reading it yet, I am thoroughly enjoying it. An outstanding nightly read. Just a few stories at a time will suffice, and you will delight in the endeavor for many a month. An excellent source for students, writers or the casual reader interested in classic mythology.
