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

The allure of ancient Egypt has endured over many centuries and this book takes you through all the main sites, temples and tombs, and investigates how mythology and religion underpinned this great civilization. All the most famous burial sites are covered, including Giza, Saqqara and the Valley of the Kings. The awe-inspiring temples are depicted from those dedicated to gods and goddesses like Hathor to the mortuary temples of Ramesses II. The Mysteries of Ancient Egypt looks in details at the myths surrounding each of the gods and goddesses and their role in Creation, and how the pharaoh was the embodiment of a divine being. Funerary rituals, festivals and superstitions are also explored, as well as an in-depth examination of the crucial role that religious belief and mythology played. It includes a chrology of ancient Egypt, charting the events of a society that flourished over three millennia.
