Twelve half-hour lectures cover the most distinguished pharaohs from the very first to the very last. The amiable and enthusiastic Professor Brier extemporizes informally from notes. However, he talks as if these kings personally hoisted every stone of the pyramids, dug every irrigation canal, designed every monument, wrote every law, and won every battle single-handedly. This is a kind of scholar speak that confuses ordinary mortals. The accompanying booklet contains no photographs and just one map. Y.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
