Fun and fascinating

I'm a listener of the Ancient History Fangirl podcast, so I had to get this book! I was not disappointed! It is full of brilliant, diverse stories, told in wonderful ways, as well as providing great context and nuance .

Very disappointing, would not recommend.

A sad example of authors changing information to push their own agenda & political ideologies.

A significant number of the myths have been altered for what I can only assume is political virtual signalling. Both authors should be thoroughly ashamed.
