About the Author:

John Ray is Herbert Thompson Reader in Egyptology at Cambridge and is a regular television and radio commentator. He is the author of the recent Reflections of Osiris (Profile) - 'the best introduction to ancient Egypt I have read' (Daily Telegraph).

Review:

Ray is a charming, unpatronising guide, of impeccable academic pedigree, lucid, generous in his estimation of our interest, [and] passionate about his subject. The Guardian Anthony Sattin, Sunday Times - '...successfully captures the West's fascination with Egypt. Always the master of his subject, he entertains rather than lectures, is sparing with minutiae but still finds space for telling detail.'
