BoM: Detecting Strudwick
Found it: Borders Bargain Bins
Own it? Absolutely. And gifted to numerous friends.
Review: I picked this up super cheap thinking I might be able to learn maybe one or two interesting things from it. Boy. Was I ever wrong. The entire thing was interesting. It was written in such a way that it was easy to understand, but it wasn't dry or boring or anything like that. And the formatting was fantastic. I want to find whoever formatted this book and give them a giant hug. By the time I was finished with this book (which, it's a smaller book and easy to get through, so it doesn't take long for one to get through this wonderful gem) I actually had learned some Egyptian phrases. I nearly died from excitement. If anyone is looking for an introduction into reading Egyptian Hieroglyphs I most ardently suggest this book. It gives a wonderful basis, using actual Egyptian inscriptions from stelas and the like, providing the novice with essential vocabulary and sign understanding. I think everyone should own this book.
Where can I find this Wonderful Fantastic Book???
