Rubbish

Terrible. Conspiracy theories and pseudo-science galore. Read Edith Hamilton's Mythology instead. Irresponsible, unfounded claims abound in this book, thinly veiled behind a half-hearted attempt at introducing the reader to the actual mythology the deceptive title claims the book is predominantly about.
