    E From Achilles' Heel to Zeus' ShieldDibbley Dale Corey 044990735XCoverage 45 out of 5Scholarship 45 out of 5User friendliness 4 out of 5Charm 4 out of 5This unassuming book an exploration of the way in which the gods and heroes of myth and legend live on in our everyday language is a real treasure Though it's relatively short 220 pages 300 root words and phrases the author manages to pack in a lot of information in an engagingly natural style that is completely free of academic pomposity Features of the book that I found particularly appealing were separate sections on the etymology of days of the week months of the year named for legendary figures chemical elements with mythological names animals and plants with mythological names planets and their moons constellations comprehensive and informative the author's willingness to go beyond just Greek and Roman legends and to include discussion of myths from other cultures as well Egyptian Norse Celtic Germanic Arabian and Sumerian mythology are all well represented even though Greek mythology probably unavoidably is most prominent the author has a kind of discursive style that some readers might find irritating but which I actually enjoyed if only because it leads her to include interesting nuggets of information in unexpected places so that one stumbles across these little Easter eggs throughout the book For example an entry on being struck by Cupid's arrow provides not only the legend underlying the origin of the phrase but also discussion of the phrase Cupid's bow mouth Kewpie dolls Rose O' Neill's Cupid drawings and the etymology of the word cupidityOne minor uibble although entries are ordered alphabetically and there is a fair amount of cross referencing an index would have been a welcome addition Random stuff I learned from reading this bookthat the male euivalents of caryatids are called atlantesthe name of the drug atropine is derived from Atropos she who cannot be turned third of the three Furies and the one who cuts the thread of life and brings deathseventh heaven is derived from the Koranthe drug prescription symbol ℞ is derived from the astronomical symbol for Jupiter ♃This is a fine book 45 stars overall

    I rather figured this book was old before I looked at the publication info A lot of references in here are dated phrases I've never heard before crop up as commonplace There is a lot packed into here and it's a good primer or refresher for GreekRoman myths and legends A little bit of sexism trickles in from time to time malefemale stereotypes
