I skimmed it because it was rather Hebrew-Centric. I would have read it more carefully had there been some depth and meat to it, and there was, in a few places, but I just couldn't get into the side-projects of his.

It's fun the first time you pick up a mythology and tie it to another to do a little skirt lifting, but it's another thing to base a whole book upon said skirt-lifting because, apparently, no reader in their right minds could attempt to understand such a culture without having to be hand-held by way of the one they grew up in.

Oh well. A book about Sumer can be better. I was disappointed with this book. Unfortunately, it lived up to everything that you would expect when reading a history book. It had so much promise when I first picked it up. Who wouldn't want to learn about the 39 firsts in recorded history?

I was intrigued by the title and decided to give it a read. However, although Mr. Kramer is probably a brilliant researcher, as a writer, he leaves something to be desired. Each of the chapters were a different first in recorded history.

For example, we ha I was disappointed with this book. For example, we have the first written prescription and although it was interesting, it didn't capture my imagination.

And, because of that, it was painful to read.

Unfortunately, even though this is called the Third Revised Edition, it is not clear in what way this book has been updated. It contains the preface to the first edition, but no new preface or introduction is added for the third edition. It does include a "Corrigenda and Addenda to the Second Edition" after the main body of texts, but the question is: Why weren't these addenda included in the tex When this book was first published in , it undoubtedly was one of the best books on the subject.

It does include a "Corrigenda and Addenda to the Second Edition" after the main body of texts, but the question is: Why weren't these addenda included in the text instead of put outside of the main text, and where are the addenda for the third edition? To make matters worse, the second edition addenda information uses page numbers that do not align with the third edition publication.

There is still a lot of valuable information in this book, but it is important for the buyer to be aware of what they are actually getting when they purchase it.

Kramer is a philologist and concentrates single-mindedly in this book on deciphering and explicating the Sumerian clay tablet literature.

The book is a readable general introduction to basic genres and tropes of Sumerian literature, and is satisfying enough if one seeks nothing else. I cannot love this book as it evidences flaws that are admittedly common in the early writings of Biblical-Archaeologists.

First, his primary concern and point of reference for interpreting texts is Biblical, e. Second, Kramer is extremely logocentric and displays a pronounced indifference to non-textual forms of evidence including architecture, pottery, statuary, tool artifacts, et cetera.

He does not seem to regard texts as existing in any kind of historical context, or at least does not regard such information as important. Third, Kramer regards clay tablets as purely literary artifacts and does not consider their possible use or relationship to liturgy or initiation rites.

That strikes me as extraordinarily odd
