This is a wonderful book with fascinating story narration and understandable explanation of the Greek myth cycle of Hercules. I cannot express how much I loved the book, and I actually read it on one breath. I have always been interested in mythology, and I have always known the myths of Heracles, but this book showed me a different view on what his story actually meant. And I am very thankful to the author, and very happy that I found and read this book.
Hercules: Greek Mythology Explained deals with the spiritual journey that Heracles went through in order to become "enlightened" and improve himself, as well as cleanse his soul. I would recommend the book to anyone who is even barely interested in mythology, because this book will sure erise their interest. And of course, I do very much agree with Robert D. Jones's last words on how our society has come to perceive these myths as mere entertainment and has lost any sense of greatness and hidden context. I believe, this is happening because people have stopped trying to learn something new, like Prometheus bound, but people are doing it consciously, only looking for entertainment and passive kind of 'fun'.
