A line from the 2006 film "300" in which Leonidas (King Of Sparta) played by Gerard Butler as he displays his displeasure to a proposition presented by the Gods. The enormous success of this film is only a glimpse of our obsession with Greek Mythology and the impact it has had on our civilization today. There's absolutely a fascination with this period in history with Gods like "Zeus" (The God Of Sky And Thunder) and his son Apollo (The God Of Music). Along with heroes like Hercules and Achilles, it's hard not to be intrigued by these amazing tales.

An interesting short compilation on greek mythology. Greek mythology is rather well known throughout the world, be it through movies or novels. However due to the twist made by hollywood, the knowledge that we have about it may not be correct. I am glad that through this book I am able to get my fact right. As the title indicates, it is a crash course to the ancient greek gods, heroes and myths. I enjoyed reading it and learnt something new about greek mythology.
Never knew how much Greek mythology plays a role in how our society is developed. This books is a great read to give you a brief over view with amazing details and pictures. I would highly recommend this book for this interested in learning about the acient gods and how they effect our world today
