'This rich story is told in exemplary fashion, ably backed by maps, plans, and appropriate illustrations' - Minerva

'I cannot be too enthusiastic about this volume. Incorporating the latest research on the temple, the author provides a wealth of information that will enhance any visit to the temple... Do buy this book... if you have visited the temple and know it well, you will gain a better understanding of it, and if you are about to visit, the book will give you an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the complex and amazing site.' - Ancient Egypt

"A complement to the archaeological excavations that must necessarily focus on the careful and extremely detailed study of small areas, this overview of the entire temple, beside being interesting and important on its own, may also provide the basis for future studies on its general layout, distribution and internal organization." Corinna Rossi, Collegio di Milano
