Awesome guide

Highlighting essentially old Ancient Anatolian People, this book is spellbinding. I could take after the thread of history from the author’s effort to discover and compile all those events that links us to our past.

Expect it to be a mile wide but an inch deep - it's more of a general reference than a fleshed-out history.it was interesting to see how the game has been played from ancient times.

Very informative on a lost civilization

I'm not an archaeologist nor a historian so I enjoyed both the written style and depth of coverage of this book. It was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for and provided important insights into the impact this ancient civilization had on our own culture.

Effective

If you are looking for a very in-depth and scholarly work, this is probably not the best book although it is very good. If you are looking for a book that is easy to deal with and is quite comprehensive without being overly pedantic then I suggest that this is a great place to start.

complete information

More casual than academic in nature, the author does draw plenty information about ancient Mesopotamia.It's accident that the various empires that rose and fell in this region still have such a strong hold on the popular imagination.

Good detail

Very basic spiritual beliefs are covered -- does not get into any of the sex cult/ infant sacrifice stuff from this region. If that's what you are looking for, you need another book.

This is fantastic for any student planning a report, as well as anyone planning to travel to Mesopotamia. It gives a sense of the incredible wealth amassed in the early empires, the politics and near-constant warfare, construction techniques, and arts.
