I find Deacy's works very well done and packed with information. This one is no exception. I've been involved in the study of goddess Athena for fourteen years now and thought I'd exhausted all the threads, this book offered some information I'd not come across in my studies before. So I'm very pleased with my purchase. I would have given 5 stars for this, my reason for complaint was cost. For departments buying the book, its all fine but for starving students the price stung me. Good work Deacy!
This appears to be a scholarly book that has research backing and relevant illustrations. However, I found it problematic having to pay $20 for it, for a number of reasons. First, the book is quite short. Second, the writing style is somewhat discombobulated. Third, although I value the opinions that the author expresses, much of the actual historical information in the book can be found in the Wikipedia entries about Athena, or elsewhere on the Internet. The reality is that the available sources on the topics are limited, and so everyone who writes about the topic is using the same old sources. The author may potentially have re-interpreted something, but I do not see how yet another re-interpretation is worth the $20. Finally, the images in the book are also available for free online, for the most part.
Well written book on the Goddess Athena and how she relates to all the other Greek Gods and Goddess.
A great read. Lots of information and sources, it is clear she's done a lot of research and gives as much information on both/all sides of disagreements between scholars.
If you like reading theses, this is the book for you. It was dry and lifeless just like academia. This was not written for the general public but is useful as a reference. As far as referencing modern day Athena at work, forget about it.
Can't really add any more to the product review but as a reader just wanted to say loudly 'I agree'. Great read, jammed packed with well researched information giving and discussing sources.
