Introducing: Captivating stories and facts of Roman gods, goddesses, and mythological creatures!

In chapter one, you will find the seeds of legitimacy that Virgil planted regarding the Trojan connection to Rome. In chapter two, you will learn about the foundation of Rome by the semi-divine, wolf-suckled brothers, Romulus and Remus. This chapter will also explore the myth of Aeneas’s son. 
In chapter three, you will learn about the gods of Roman origin as well as Roman mythological creatures. Chapter four focuses on the Etruscan influence on Roman mythology. The Greek influence on Roman mythology is the topic of chapter five. 
In chapter six, the audiobook will investigate the Celtic influence and see how the gods of the Celts were melded with the Roman pantheon in creative ways. Finally, in chapter seven, you will discover the potential truths behind the Roman gods, goddesses, and creatures. Every myth had a beginning, and in this chapter, we explore some of the possibilities.

A good review of all major myths

This book gives a fine survey of Roman belief. Each of the above stories and multiple of the minors is included here. I would have wanted to see more of the myths from other religions, but it is natural that they are not involved, given the point that the work. A useful manual to myths.

I'm in love with this book...

I can't believe how lucky I am. This find is a goldmine!!! Of all the books I've read regarding mythology, I have found this one to not only be reachable but also very comprehensive at the same time. The complete book reads like a novel and is rather hard to put down.

Not Bad, But Not Great

It sounded more like it should be a novella than an audiobook. Some elements were well presented while others were not, with the format of the audiobook not helping this. Could have been better, but the core information in the book was still good.
