No educational value in Greek myths?

I'm surprised that you didn't think this book had educational value. That would be the most important quality of this book, in my opinion. You can't pick up a book on Greek myths and be annoyed that it has...gasp...actual Greek myths! Sex and violence were a part of life in ancient Greece, so obviously they'd be part of their myths as well.
