More About the Author

John DeSalvo, Ph.D., is director of the Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association. His purpose in starting this association was to make available to the public general information and new research on the Great Pyramid. He was the spokesperson in the West for the Russian pyramid research, which demonstrated the beneficial results--on both animate and inanimate objects--of the energy generated by the large pyramids they built.

A former college professor and administrator, DeSalvo's B.S. degree is in physics, and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees are in biophysics. He has taught the following subjects on the college level: human anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, general biology, human gross anatomy, and neurophysiology. His college administrative experience includes cultural affairs director, basic science department head, and dean of student affairs.

In 1979 DeSalvo coauthored the book Human Anatomy--A Study Guide (currently out of print) with Dr. Stanley Stolpe, former head of the Anatomy Department at the University of Illinois. His publi- cations in scientific journals include research on the infrared system of rattlesnakes ("Spatial Properties of Primary Infrared Neurons in Crotalidae"). He was also a recipient of research grants and fellowships from the National Science Foundation, United States Public Health and Human Services, and the National Institutes of Health.

For more than thirty years, John DeSalvo was one of the scientists involved in studying the Shroud of Turin. Currently, he is executive vice president of ASSIST (Association of Scientists and Scholars International for the Shroud of Turin), which is the largest and oldest research associa- tion in the world currently studying the Shroud. He was also a research consultant to the original STURP (Shroud of Turin Research Project) team and was the contributing science editor for the book SINDON--A Layman's Guide to the Shroud of Turin (published in 1982, currently out of print). His Shroud research involved the image formation process of the man on the Shroud and studies using three-dimensional reconstruc- tion, spectroscopic, and ultraviolet analysis. He has lectured nationwide on the Shroud, and in 1980 the International Platform Association desig- nated him as one of the top thirty speakers in the nation.

He published The Complete Pyramid Sourcebook in 2003 and Andrew Jackson Davis: The First American Prophet and Clairvoyant in 2005. His book Decoding the Pyramids was published by Barnes and Noble in May 2008 and has been translated into French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, and Czech. In October 2008 his book The Seeress of Prevorst: Her Secret Language and Prophecies from the Spirit World was published by Inner Traditions. His book Dead Sea Scrolls was pub- lished by Barnes and Noble in July 2009 and is also available in French, Dutch, Spanish, and German.

Destiny Books, an imprint of Inner Traditions, has published three books of DeSalvo's: The Lost Art of Enochian Magic (2010), featur- ing a CD of DeSalvo pronouncing the Enochian Calls; Decoding the Enochian Secrets (2011) and Power Crystals (2012).

The author is frequently seen on the History Channel in the two series: Ancient Aliens and Nostradamus Effect, and appeared on America Unearthed in 2014 discussing the Lincoln Assassination. He has given more than one hundred television and radio interviews and press con- ferences including frequent appearances on Coast to Coast with George Noory. He currently co-hosts a radio show with California DJ and Fox News regular Jaimee Lee.

Format: Hardcover
Having been an affectionado of pyramidology for years, I have read a lot of publications and books on the subject. This book is a rehash of older books and a few new pictures and teaser paragraphs from work done in the 90's in the USSR. Statements are made with no documentation or references. Like the entire ninth chapter on russian research and their pyramids. Except for announcing that the russians had built non-gizah style pyramids of fibreglass, (but in the spirit of the golden-section or in ratios) maybe we should wait for their book since this book does not have enough detail to follow or construct or replicate their work. It is a money thing I am sure since we are told that the somebody spent one million dollars to construct their pyramid(s)?
Go to the web site,, see the pictures read the short description and save your money, that's about all that is new in this book except being a compendium of others works and the authors comments on their previous works.
The first one hundred pages are old history and the last 70 pages are reprints from an old english text. Since this was the current be all book, wonder why it didn''t include the large commercial structure in Minnesota, the multiple pyramids in Tennessee, the winery that mellows their wines in their pyramid in BC, Canada, or others? I bought my copy used for $11, which is about right.

Format: Paperback
The book was written by a man who could gather in an international association most interesting and active researchers studying the Great Pyramid and strange effects associated with its shape. The book presents detailed stories about major artifacts revealed in the Great Pyramid and its surrounding, which have been scattered by various books, magazines, journals, private files, and the web. Dr. DeSalvo narrates interesting and intriguing stories occurred with members of The Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association, quotes paragraphs from rare books including the first book written about the Pyramid in 1646 and notations of ancient Arabian explorers. Very new results, theories, ideas, propositions, findings, and achievements are also available in the book. There are many unique pictures; there are schemes of researchers, which link the Pyramid to distant stars; there are explanations of how the Pyramid would function in the ancient time (Dunn's theory of the maser, Cadman's theory of water pump, and etc.). The book includes feature stories about the age of the Pyramid and time when it was built. The reader can read about unique research carried out by archeologist J. A. West and about the ancient autochthonous population of Egypt, Khemitians, and their knowledge, which leaked out due to the enthusiasm of archeologist S. Mehler. The reader will find also information on big Russian and Ukrainian pyramids constructed in the 1990s and the research conducted in them; a big pyramid in India constructed in 2002 for the meditation purpose. There is also description of studied performed in 2000s both in the Great Pyramid and its small models. Besides, this is the first book on the pyramid, which accounts for the pyramid power in terms of modern physics.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
Dr. John DeSalvo has provided a valuable service to all interested in the latest alternative research concerning the Great Pyramid. Instead of having to read dozens of different books and articles, Dr. DeSalvo provides excerpts of many works to provide the reader an overview of the latest information in this field.
Dr. DeSalvo also provides some insight to the never before published work of Russian and Ukrainian researchers into pyramid effects. As Director of The Great Pyramid of Research Asociation, John DeSalvo has given the opportunity to many independant researchers to get some of their work in print and seen by many people--this is a wonderful service.
This book should be on everyone's bookshelf who is interested in the work of many great researchers into the Great Pyramid--right alongside Peter Tompkins.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it contains a number of photographs of interior features of the Great Pyramid, showing details not seen in most publications. I was also impressed by the letters after the author's name. Lastly, I was looking for a sober and scientific (or at least scientistic) treatment of the subject. My mistake.
Most of the photos are of more 'fringe' aspects of pyramid study. While they may be interesting to many, they are not to me. So far, a matter of taste. The text is not very organized; it is divided into chapters with specific subjects but none of the topics are treated in a complete or logically structured way. The choice of material is mind-boggling, with well-known, factual anomalies or curiousities of construction listed in the same breath as notions about anti-gravity and 'logical' treatment of likely magical uses for the pyramids. Reference sources defy description, and range from ancient historians on the one hand to a recent writer telling a first-person story about a 9th century caliph who dug his way into the pyramid. All the obligatory discussions of world grids, power points, crystals, pyramid power, aliens, levitation are there, but i must have missed the discussion of 'actual' controversies like the possibility that casing stones may have been cast in place as concrete rather than cut and hauled.
Last, and certainly least, the grammar, punctuation, and overall quality of writing would not be acceptable in a high school essay. Most plural's show incorrect use's of apostrophe's; sentence fragments are frequent, these and other issues are common enough to interfere with even a reader that cares little for such things.

I think this author has a passion for his topic and a great deal of information. A thinner book, better organized and PROOFREAD would have been a better and more needed contribution to the field.
