More About the Author

Best known as a visionary and for his research into the crop circle & UFO subjects since 1983 and his significant contribution to new studies of consciousness.

He provides the only continuity between the past crop circle research era and the present, along with his friend and colleague,Busty Taylor.

His long view of both the genuine phenomenon and the human-made phenomenon provides unique insight into the subject. His research results indicate the intelligence behind the phenomenon is interacting with both crop circle researchers and many of the people who make the hoaxes.

He has publicly stated since the late 1980's that the phenomenon indicates a future period of human chaos. The period indicated, supported by current trends, can be changed with human awareness and he believes there are serious eco-political implications and that the future direction of the planet is at the center of the phenomenon. In the final analysis Andrews believes the phenomenon is challenging people to a higher level of consciousness. Some native elders agree with Colin's assessment which is supported by the 2012 Mayan Prophecy, which his book,along with his wife, speaks: 'The Complete Idiots Guide to 2012'.

Colin's thirty year investigation continues with growing urgency for openness and honesty in government and private research, respect for divergent opinions and co-operation between investigators in all areas.

He is an accomplished photographer, who has been invited to show his photographs in art galleries across the United States, including the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Cortland Jessup Art Gallery in Provincetown, Cape Cod. One spectacular photograph of Princess Diana and Prince Charles on their honeymoon was presented to the Queen and to this day also hangs in the Mayors Parlour at Romsey, England - the home town of Prince Charles uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma.

Colin Andrews, electrical engineer by profession, is the man who coined the term 'Crop Circle'.Among his many accomplishments: he started the first research organization, Circles Phenomenon Research (CPR); designed high-tech surveillance operations attempting to film a circle being made, the most famous being 'Operation Blackbird in 1990; and advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's cabinet and Queen Elizabeth on the mysterious phenomenon. He compiled the largest data base in the world on the subject. Colin has written numerous books including the classic best seller Circular Evidence (1989) with co-author Pat Delgado, which was chosen by the Queen for her prestigious Summer Reading List.

He is frequently highlighted in television documentaries on the subject and was a consultant with the Mel Gibson movie Signs. His most recent books include The Complete Idiots Guide to 2012 and The Complete Idiots Guide to the Akashic Record written with his wife, Dr. Synthia Andrews.

One of many highly successful results of his remote viewing skills was when he identified a murderer in Washington DC before the police knew who they were looking for.The murderer became known as the Beltway sniper, who randomly killed ten people over a period of three weeks during October 2002,creating near panic along the I95 near the city.Apart from those he shot and killed he also critically injured three. On the night of October 14th, 2002 while watching reports on TV of another shooting, Colin Remotely Viewed a young black man, 17years old, and sketched him near the edge of a parking lot, some distant from the victim. When the police finally got their man, Colin's Sketch closely resembled that of the young 17 year old black man, Lee Boyd Malvo. The incident Colin accessed was in the parking lot of Home depot, in Fairfax County, Virginia where FBI intelligence analyst was shot dead as she left the store - killed by Lee Boyd Malvo (you can watch video on colin's website Colin Andrews.

Format: Paperback
This is the granddaddy of all crop circle books. Lots of pictures. Lots of first hand reporting. Short on speculation.

The authors were in southern England, got interested, and started driving around to the crop circles that were appearing in fields near them. They took photos. They measured. They made sketches of how the plants were flattened. They talked to the farmers whose fields they had to trespass upon to do this work.

After ten years of this, in 1988 they decided to publish what they'd seen in a book. It sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and made crop circles a household word. For an introduction to the subject, this book is still an excellent choice. Though flawed by the limited geographic coverage, the strong emphasis on factual reporting, adequate prose, and plentiful pictures make this book a winner.

I honestly have no idea what this book is about as I ordered it on my grandmothers behalf. She seems highly satisfied with it, so I'll call that a win.
