The Travelers Key to Ancient Egypt: A Guide to the Sacred Places of Ancient Egypt by John Anthony WestIf you are looking for one good book on Egypt this would be it. Its a combination of travelers guide - with tips on visiting various sites and areas and what to look for - and a brief guide to the civilization that was Ancient Egypt, including information on its history and religion. John Anthony West was involved in the controversy concerning the age of the Sphinx, but in this book he doesnt presume to know or give all the answers to some of the most puzzling mysteries that make up this ancient land; rather to his credit he presents the different arguments held by egyptologists and independent researchers alike. This is more a book you carry with you when visiting the different sites in Egypt, nonetheless I got a lot out of reading many of the chapters in it and refreshing my memory on many of the places I visited and hope to visit again.
