Excellent information!

Excellent information! It's not as dry as I thought it would be and I enjoyed it. Very well researched and thorough. I'd recommend this book to anyone that would like to understand Mesopotamian Myths and Legends, and it would be a great reference if you are writing a paper, as sources are well documented.
