Synopsis: In most ways, ancient Egyptian society and everyday life was significantly different than in modern Western counties. This information-packed but easy-to-read volume explores the privileged lives of the pharaohs and other noble Egyptians; how poor peasants worked both in the fields and on state building projects; sports and leisure activities of all classes; and religious attitudes and practices.

Review: "A good place for beginning research, these books are usable as well for students who have difficulty with reading. Middle school and junior high media specialists will find these a welcome addition to their collections for their struggling readers. Recommended."
-- Book Report (September 2002) (Book Report 20020901)

"They do have a simple attractive format that makes them accessible to young audiences. Even in these brief introductions, the author avoids judging these ancient societies by modern-day values. Full-color photos, maps, and reproductions are plentiful and add interest to the texts."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"Befitting the series title, the book gives a personalized version of this historical movement and the cultural and political elements of the time are firmly in the background."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"The author presents his information clearly without fictionalizing, and offers some first-person accounts by period writers. The layout is clear and logical. An informative introduction that will have some appeal for reluctant readers."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

"... Nardo is careful to point out that the lives of the Egyptian nobility were quite different from those of peasants. He describes the importance of religion to all ancient Egyptians and their view of the afterlife... Even in these brief introductions, the author avoids judging these ancient societies by modern-day values. Full-color photos, maps and reproductions are plentiful and add interest to the texts. Serviceable additions."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)
