A very accessible introduction to classical mythology, The Original Dysfunctional Family: Basic Classical Mythology for the New Millennium presents the key stories of the twelve Olympians as well as those of the two gods associated with the fruits of the harvest, Demeter and Dionysus. The Greek version of each Olympian is presented first followed by the Roman adaptation. Chock-full of information, this book provides a sound foundation for the beginning student's further studies in culture, literature, and history. The general reader will find Williams' style engaging.

Review: SciTech Book News - November 1, 2008
The original dysfunctional family; classical mythology for the new millennium. Williams, Rose. Bolchazy-Carducci Pub., ©2008 61 p. $12.00 BL725 978-0-86516-690-5 A venerable Latin teacher and author of textbooks and teaching guides, Williams here provides an ancillary and quick reference to the Roman pantheon for any person or group studying the ancient world. It resonates particularly well, she says, with the Bolchazy-Carducci textbook Latin for the New Millennium. The title is just a catchy phrase, not an organizing principle.
