One of the world's leading experts on mythology and folklore, Neil Philip, Ph.D. has written more than 30 books, including DK's The Illustrated Book of Myths
Everyone has heard of a myth or legend, and wondered what is the real story behind it. This book is the most amazing look at various myths. There were even some I hadn't heard of, so that aspect, for me, is exactly what I want in a book.
I love the layout of the book, complete with beautiful illustrations and photographs of relics.
A must have for any mythology lover, or even if you are just keen.
