      Very interesting, from a professor author, although written in a dense dissertation style. More extensive editing might improve the book for the reader.

      Perhaps I already knew what Levin was going to say. While spending a great deal of time saying he was not demeaning Michael Ventris for his work on the Linear B deciphering project, he constantly alluded to the fact that Ventris was not a professional philologist but a dabbler, being in fact an architect. The other thing that Levin tried to excuse himself from was the fact that Ventris, had been gone for eight years tragically killed in an auto accident in 1956. Ventris couldn't defend his work [...]

      I adore this book. While a bit old, it and Minoan Linear A are absolutely phenomenal works on the due diligence needed to confirm a decipherment. Want to decipher Linear A? This and Packard's books are both required reading in my mind; canonical criteria for how to Do It Right(tm).
