This book contains short references to mythology in many parts of the world. I have enjoyed just randomly clicking on a link in it to see what information comes up. If you are looking for a book with a lot of explanation on a topic, then I would skip this one. But if you are looking for a book that will make you want to learn more about some different countries mythologies then this is for you. With over 10,000 entries I think you will find at least one that would interest you. Happy browsing!
