The main draw of this book and others in the series are the illustrations. Highly recommended if just to view those.

Just like all the others, this is a great collection of myth and folklore from around the world.

While I really did enjoy this one, the information in it was not as informed as one would hope, so I would say it was a great overview, in my opinion. I especially found it fitting that this book ends with the Norse, and, of course, Ragnarok, the end of the world.
