As a coffee table book, this probably wasn t intended to be read cover to cover too often, but it held up well when I did so It s not a scholarly work by any means, but its brevity is its comparative advantage it gave me a good overview of Chinese mythology and how it relates to history, material culture, etc And now if I want to become a specialist I can go and read something thicker or footnoted, if that s a word.
