"The author adopts an accessible style and presents a commendable amount of information. . . . [T]he book is a straightforward introduction to a wide range of material." - Ancient Egypt Magazine "[T]he series is explicitly written for high school and junior-college students. Summing Up: Recommended. General, high school, and lower-division undergraduate collections." - Choice "This book would be most useful for academic and research programs in archaeology and/or Egyptology; it would also be nice as a coffee table book." - ARBA "Rather than being presented in chronological order, the entries are grouped into eight broad categories, such as beauty, food and drink, religion and ritual, and weapons. This unique approach to history will help high school, undergraduate, and general readers understand what life was like in ancient Egypt." - Booklist Online
