This short book (56 pages on my Kindle) provides quite a reasonable introduction to exactly what it says on the cover: the mythology and religion of the Inca. It's probably possible to find all this stuff in various websites on the internet but having the information collated here makes it all more accessible and considerably less bitty. So, nothing to in depth, but a decent little introduction to a broad and deep and complex subject.

Not that great. Provided some background on the Inca religion, but I could have gotten the same information from the Internet. I guess I only have myself to blame for thinking that I could buy a thin volume and get maximum background on the subject. Particularly disappointing was that fact that it duplicated word-for-word substantial text that was also in a companion book (Machu Pichhu: History and Mystery of the Incan City). Save your money and read stuff on the Internet.
