If you love Egypt, and all things about it, you deserve this book

Egyptomania: Our Three Thousand Year Obsession with the Land of the Pharaohs - Bob Brier

This was a great read on ancient Egypt and how it has influenced our world from the Greeks and Romans all the way up to today. There's some snarky comments, some great history, lots of coincidences that I had never heard of before, and a fun ride. It's a short book, just over two hundred pages long, and very entertaining. There are lavish illustrations as well. Four stars overall, and a recommendation.
