A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong

In this book, Karen Armstrong examines the role of myth thinking in human culture from prehistoric days until the present. She argues that myth plays a crucial role in human life and that modern societies discard myth at their own peril.

This book seems to re-hash many ideas from other books by Karen Armstrong, but in a less compelling or interesting way. I would recommend any other of her books, but not this one.
