Not only is 2012: The Year of The Changes a scholarly work but it is also eminently readable. It is obvious Mr. de Araujo has done exhaustive research over many years to bring us a concise compilation of prophesies about Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin.
His unbiased conclusions are presented in a format that is both informative and entertaining. He cites a lengthy list of documented sources which adds great credibility to his writing.
Fabio R. de Araujo is not only a historian but he is also an accomplished linguist having an outstanding command of the English language as well as several others. This ability to read other languages allows him to explore many of the ancient prophecies in their original format, which in turn eliminates some of the errors introduced through translation.
When I first opened the book, I was a bit skeptical about prophecies in general and abut those concerning Presidents Obama and Putin in particular. I have read Nostradamus in the past and always found his prophetic writings to be open to wide interpretation. Fortunately, for the reader, Mr. de Araujo does not fall in to the trap of predicting events based upon what a prophet might have been thinking at the time of the prophecy. However, he does present both sides to every story, positive and negative, and if he thinks a particular prophecy is a fake, he says so without reservation. These fantasy predictions he presents and debunks because they are being circulated as authentic prophecies. This, in my opinion, is one of the strong points of his writing and lends credibility to his research.
If you are interested in the world-changing events that will take place in the year 2012, then this book should certainly be on your reading list.
In a way, the whole world will be affected by Obama's & Putin's decisions, so perhaps the world should read this. I wish there was a way to get much broader publicity for this book. I think it is essentially important for people to understand how prophecies will affect their lives directly.
Well written, insightful, well researched. It's very objective, and written so that the reader can read the facts and come to his/her own conclusions. Some might steer away from "prophecy" books, thinking they are religious or just the thoughts of a person's mind, but this book is not that at all. This writer is an excellent researcher and historian, and his writing style is very easy to read.
I think everyone will be amazed at all of the information in this book. It's not just for those interested in prophecy, but those interested in politics and world affairs.
Whether you are an Obama fan or not, everyone interested in history and in the future, and interested in how Obama's position might influence their life, needs to read this. There are so many prophecies about this man, but unfortunately, none in English, (the very language of people who need this information the most)...until now. I am grateful for this information and the lifetime of study the author went through to bring it to us in English.

More a pamphlet than a book, there just isn't much substance here. It's a disjointed series of chapters
