Nice format in sections according to subject. Gets to the point and has good use of sidebars.

I really enjoyed this book. The photos are amazing. The topics cover a wide range of Egyptian history, including their religious practices, their burial rituals, their pharaohs, and their political structure. The information is not in-depth and does not cover Egyptian history in chronological order. Instead, Oaks divides the book into specific topics and offers just enough information to give the reader the feel of what Egyptian life was like… (more)

The photographs and illustrations in this book are WONDERFUL but the book's organization leaves something to be desired. It tries to lay things out by theme but with so much jumping around in the time line it's difficult to get a good understanding of how Egyptian culture developed and changed over time.
