    I have died and gone to heaven! I am totally enamored at the beauty, the layout and the how detailed the text is written. For anyone who loves Egyptology or Kemetics, this book is a must have. Do not be swayed by the price because this book is worth the investment of your heart, mind and head. Eloquence spoken from thousands of years ago must be heard in order for you to gain perspective about what has been stripped away from us. This book changes everything about what you know. Buy it!

    It is a GREAT and complete piece of Art, History and Religious beliefs on the after life more than 3,000 years, just incredible. Is a bit big but I don’t complain since originally is a big book.
