This is an excellent read. Ive read several other books that have the most recent translations of the tablets the author discusses and it is quite interesting to read the authors initial findings while having the knowledge of the most recent translations in my mind. It is fascinating to read the authors thoughts on the subjects and information on how and where the tablets were found.

A good view of archeological research going on 150 years ago, possibly why still today we are highly involved in this portion of the world. Could be truth into events hidden from mainstream knowledge theologically. Ashamed we are missled even today by our history and religious leaders because it is truly remarkable how we have come to be the society's we are at present by what we are taught from our past.

The discovery of the Nineveh library from afar antiquity and the translation of the clay tablets shows us that civilization and the stories in Genesis are much older than anyone dreamed.
The author, I felt, tried to maintain coherent information extracted from difficult to none desernable archeological pieces. The author conveyed well the picture and impression that some of the stories have high probabilities in finding their way to the three monotheistic religions' holly books.
