Anyone read any of Aidan Dodson books? He has a new one out on Rameses III. The article on Rameses III in the current issue of KMT Journal made me think there is more to the story than I previously thought.

Also looks like there is a book from Prof Dodson on Nefertiti coming out this Fall.

I have a copy of his guide to the royal families, that is it. Was wondering if his other titles were worthwhile reads.

I have read a few of Aidan Dodson's books, including the new one on Rameses III just a few months ago. I personally found it to be an interesting read and have learned much from it. Also, this particular book has many beautiful full-colored images in it which was a pleasant surprise to me.

I also enjoyed his Amarna Sunrise, Amarna Sunset, and Poisoned Legacy: The Fall of the Nineteenth Egyptian Dynasty.

I look forward to his upcoming Nefertiti book later this year!

I've read all of his except the Ramesses III title. Most are really good, but I found his book on Seti I to be pretty slight, without much to chew over. I'd have liked to have learned more about Seti's life prior to his father becoming king, but the evidence is probably non-existent at this time. It's not Dodson's fault - despite his grandiose tomb and contributions to temples, his son really overshadows him.
