Biography on Champollion

David Stuart in The Wall Street Journal has reviewed a biography on Champollion called Cracking the Egyptian Code which has been written by Andrew Robinson:

" Mr. Robinson's highly enjoyable book tells so much more that I came away amazed at the intellectual adventures of a man whose accomplishments, as one contemporaneous admirer put it, "will last as long as the monuments he came to explain to us."
Tempted to add it to my already overflowing book shelves!
