Surprisingly, it is possible to learn how to read hieroglyphs without being a specialist or study the subject for years! This book is the proof you can do it! It contains a very accessible and clever approach that let you learn without suffering much. It contains many exercises that will make you sure you understood the related chapter. Of course, that means you have to work on it, but it is a pleasure.
Egyptians had a complex and clever way to write, but as you might realise soon, it was not practical for hand writing at all! Nevertheless, if you are interested in hieroglyphs, this book is definitely worth its price. You will never go to the museum with same eye after having read it!

Certainement la meilleure méthode pour s'initier à la lecture des hiéroglyphes. Excellent travail, simple comme savent le faire les anglais, limpide à vous faire passer pour un génie de l'épigraphie.

Well, what title should I give for a book on Egyptian hieroglyphs?
Actually, the information blurb from the Library Journal linked to the book's entry here states: 'Reference collections desiring more complete coverage will want Alan Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar (1957. 3d ed.) despite some obsolescence in the treatment of the verbal system.'
I actually learned hieroglyphs using that text at the University of London in the 1980s. But I have assembled a collection of more accessible books on how to learn hieroglyphs as refreshers and for sharing. I have four texts, and this was the first of the lot.
If you are truly interested in learning Egyptian hieroglyphs for an upcoming trip to Egypt or to visit a museum with a collection (I amazed a friend once by being able to read an inscription at the museum; I confessed that of the hundreds of 'paragraphs' of hieroglyphs in the collection, that that was one of only two I could decipher without my notebook), Collier and Manley's 'How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs' is a good choice for learning.
It begins with a basic description of the way in which hieroglyphs are used (some signs are words, but actually very few, and others are sound-meaning symbols). Collier and Manley introduce a transliteration system to ease your way into pronunciation (and pronunciation is very sketchy, given the fact there are no recordings from ancient Egypt). Symbols can vary occasionally for sound, meaning, and determinative value.
The pattern of hieroglyphs is also variable. Generally, you always want to 'read into the face', i.e., the picto-glyphs will be facing the direction from which to start -- more often right to left than left to right, and columns go top to bottom.

Best introduction to hieroglyphics available! 11 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book fills the gaping hole between the large reference grammars such as Gardiner's, the popular introductions that don't really teach any of the language, and the out-of-date material by Budge.
Written at the British Museum, this is a textbook for learning to read hieroglyphs such as you find on the walls of a museum. It is not a complete grammar and won't teach you how to read complex literture, but will give you a complete enough command of the language to read most common material.
The book is well-printed and nicely bound, and is small enough to take to the museum with you! It contains a wealth of material, a glossary, king lists, and information about Egyptian gods.
Many of the exercises are drawings or pictures of wall paintings or carvings, making the book fun to use. Answers to exercises are given at the back.
If you don't know which hieroglyphic book to pick, this is the one!

The pattern of hieroglyphs is also variable. Generally, you always want to 'read into the face', i.e., the picto-glyphs will be facing the direction from which to start -- more often right to left than left to right, and columns go top to bottom. There are no punctuation marks and no word breaks -- this can make meanings hard to decipher.
Consider the example:
IAMNOWHERE
which could be broken into
I AM NOW HERE
or
I AM NOWHERE
and in this case, context might not help provide which meaning is the true one. Or perhaps the author is poetical and sees the trouble of distinction and means that trouble to be present.
No wonder hieroglyphs are hard!
Collier and Manley's book is excellent in basic vocabulary building and basic grammar. And, if you're like me and will make flash cards, you'll become a better draw-er too.
There are exercises, and pictures of inscriptions to practice on, and a key to the exercises in the back of the book.

Full of detail and examples, a bit hard to follow 4 août 2000
Par Heath Buckmaster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is an excellent book to give the reader an introduction to studying or learning the ancient egyptian heiros. The book goes into a lot of detail about transliteration, and making the images turn into sounds. It does a good job explaining that the words are more about sounds than actual individual meanings. I found it a bit difficult to follow all the transliteration of sounds, and had to keep referring back to the charts to remember meaning (especially when you start using all the tick marks, and letter combinations). Otherwise, for those who are studying to be egyptologists, or really want to know how words may have been pronounced, this is an excellent start.

This is the book to get you started! 8 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
So far it is the best introduction to reading Middle Egyptian I have seen. It is ideal for studying at home in your own pace and in your own time and, maybe the most important feature, all by yourself.
The examples are actual writings taken from stelae from the British Museum, so you learn the real stuff, no messing around with artificial examples.
It is not an exhaustive and in depth course for the Middle Egytian language, but is the best way to get you started. I recommend it to every one who is interested in Middle Egytian, but does not know where to start.

The best book for beginners 25 février 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is THE book to start with. The book is so well-written and contains so many interesting genuine texts from stelae that the novice reader remains enthousiastic, and will continue to read through the more difficult parts. A very interesting aspect is 'human interest' the use of stelae from 'lower' people than kings: you get a glimpse of a man, his wife, his children, his servants, his position in society, what they thought to be important... Ok, the book is a bit limited in that it only deals with certain types of texts (Middle-Eg. stelae, offering formulae...), but be sure that, after reading, your next visit to a museum or Egypt will be very special: you can read!! A great experience. Thanks to the momentum gained from this book, you can now read the second monumental book on ancient Egyptian: James P. Allen's "Middle-Egyptian". A bit tougher, though, but complete.
