    Howard Carter and the mystery of King Tutankhamun s Tomb Sounds exciting, right But Daniel Meyerson went ahead and achieved the impossible here I should say he did an Ang Lee Oscar nominated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was sure an achievement But I felt it was boring An impossible feat to achieve for a Martial Arts movie Am I going to lose some friendship points by saying that Meyerson did the same here His resea...

    The moment of discovery of King Tut s tomb really captured my imagination when we saw the King Tut exhibit a few years ago This book chronicles the history of Carter, the discoveries of other tombs, and the discovery of that of King Tut in a very readable fashion.
