Product Description Review It's well written (5 STAR) the narrative has a brilliant flow educating the curious reader (repeater / new). Almost everything about Greek Mythology is covered and the connections with other Myths has been explored / compared. Devdutt's artwork and grey boxes with the Indian and Roman parallels are unique / fun to read. Till now I had no clue about the difference between the "Roman Empire" and the "Holy Roman Empire"....which caused Europe's "1000 year Dark Period / Age" which ended with the Renaissance ki "Biryani / Stew Philosophy"....!! Another fabulous read from Devdutt Pattanaik......which also lands as an expose of the "Biryani or Stew" narrative manufactured by the West to suit their :) --By Dhananjay on 27 October 2016 It's a nice little compendium of all the numerous Greek myths which you would have heard of but didn't know how they were interconnected. I love the artwork inside and the grey boxes with the Roman parallels and possible Indian parallels. It would be foolish to imagine absolutely no connection between the mythology of two cultures which prospered at the same time. It's the perfect follow up to all the numerous mythology books the author has written in his trademark aesthetic and a must add to your Devdutt Pattanaik collection if you have on --By A Customer on 25 October 2016 About the Author Devdutt Pattanaik is a medical doctor by education a leadership consultant by profession and a mythologist by passion.
