Reads a bit textbook-y. The book is over 20 years old. So, decent information but old. I’d like to hear (ok, read) more recent thoughts on the ancients. Thoughts, theories, understanding will change over the course of 20 years.

Throughout a series of short chapters written by different scholars, we get to see a broad view of Ancient Egypt. I'm finding it quite easy to read and very informative (even if it doesn't go deep in details). Despite being a little old, I think is perfect for somebody who wants to get a good overview of the subject, without devoting a lot of time to it. Additionally, the many photographs and illustrations are a great support.
