The Greek myths are amongst the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.

was that it wasn't long enough! An amazing trek through the origins of the universe, the rise and reign of the Titans, their fall and the ascension of and Olympians, the creation of man and the interactions of humans and gods. Some familiar stories and some "deep cuts" that I hadn't heard of before.

I would love to hear another volume on the age of heroes; Perseus, Theseus, Jason, Heracles and Bellerophon.
