    1. A simple but fascinating introduction to cuneiform. I loved the physical layout and the pictures in this book. Beautiful!

    2. A concise, crisp and very clear introduction to what cuneiform is, when it was used, who used it and how it worked. I was slightly disappointed that the book didn’t teach me how to read cuneiform but it made it clear why a much bigger book would be required.This whet my appetite rather then satiated it.

    3. As Beebee's review notes, this is a short book intended primarily for beginners; but I found it a helpful unified presentation of introductory material scattered through other works. In particular, the pictures are by far the best I've seen; I only wish more use had been made of the technique in, e.g figures 2 and 54, of highlighting relevant characters.The authors are curators, not professors, and I suspect the editors deliberately dumbed the book down. Some of the prose felt superfluous, and I [...]

    4. Given to me by a good friend. A great primer on Cuneiform's origins and construct, without overdoing it conceptually so that you know where to start when conducting further study of this ancient script.

    5. A pretty basic primer on the ancient cuneiform script and the scribal culture connected with it, with lots of nice photos of tablets (mainly from the British Museum). Not much depth, but there are a few interesting little pieces of trivia to be picked up.

    6. A very well written introduction to cuneiform by two experts from the British Museum. The illustrations are great and complement the text.
