Yes, I have read it. It should be reliable as Tyldesley is a well-known egyptologist and she gives countless sources throughout the book.

Im assmuming from the threads title that the book has something to with 'Tutankhamun's Curse'.

What does the author state in the book, what information does she have regarding the 'Curse of Tutankhamun'.

I'm intrigued. Would be appreciated Smile!

I have just started reading the book ,by Joyce Tyldesley.I have two more of her books to read following it.I am finding it a breath of fresh air compared to Gardiners Egyptian grammer,which I am about to finish reading.

Hi! Joyce teaches Egyptology for the Manchester University, so her work is very reliable. I've only read her book on pyramids so far, but found it to be extremely informative. Enjoy!
