Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In Search Of", "The Discovery Channel" and "That's Incredible" have probed the mystery of Edward Leedskalnin's unbelievable achievement on national television with no hint or explanation. Scientists from all over the world have studied his monolithic stone works with no answer as to how he raised and move over 1,100 tons of rock all by himself. In December 1951, Edward Leedskalnin died taking his secrets and amazing knowledge to his grave. Now, After more than half a century the silence is broken. How To Read His Writings is the first book that explains how to decode the secret writings Edward Leedskalnin encoded in his works. You will see how IT works with actual decoded writings that will shock and tantalize your innermost being and thirst for the truth.

From the Author

When I first read Edward Leedskalnin's published works, I interpreted them as most first time reader's do. Viewing them as poorly written and making no real sense at all, they landed up in a dusty box in my basement. Then it came to me. Was it possible that Edward Leedskalnin wrote his works in some type of code?

After nine on and off years of trial and error I accidentally stumble across how Edward Leedskalnin ingeniously encoded his works. His writings, which safeguarded his amazing knowledge for more than half a century, came to life. I quickly realize there was more to Edward Leedskalnin than just lifting massive rocks.

My book, entitled How To Read His Writings, is written in an easy to understand format. Best of all, you don't need to be a code-breaking expert to read this book. Revealed is how to decode Edward Leedskalnin's writings with actual decoded examples so you will know it is his words you will discover and not mine.

Once his hidden words come to life and speak to you, you to will discover what it is all about and see the path to the answers you are looking for.

Customer Reviews

It's not written well, only marginally better than Leedskalnin's writing, so it can be annoying as well as fruitless.
I thought the book would explain some sort of code or possibly interpret Leedsklanin's sketches or clarify something written incorrectly. . . I don't know.
L. Anderson
I also agree that I might have missed the big picture of what the authors were trying to say but I wanted a technical reading book and this wasn't it.

I recently bought a copy of this "How To" book because of a stop I made at the Coral Castle while driving to the Florida Keys eight years ago.
That was when I became more than just curious as to how a near ninety pound -- five foot tall Edward Leedskalnin raised and moved tons of rock without any help or modern equipment. With camera in hand I took over three rolls of pictures that day as I walked amidst the megalithic rocks it contained. I even bought all of Edward Leedskalnin's writings that were for sale in the Coral Castle store, but upon later reading Leedskalnin's writings, I became totally lost by his rambling prose and wondered why I ever bought them since they made no sense at all to me.
When I came upon this "How To" book with its claim that Edward Leedskalnin encoded his secret in his works I couldn't pass it up. After reading it, I wondered if this "How To" book was just a prank or the truth. Did Edward Leedskalnin methodically hide his secret in his works for someone to find in the future, or did Leedskalnin instead take his secret to his grave?
It was then that I decided to put this "How To" book through some tests to see if it was a prank or possibly the truth.
I dug out all the pictures I took of the Coral Castle and to my surprise everything in this "How To" book was there. It wasn't the megalithic rocks that the book described but the symbols and subtle clues Edward Leedskalnin placed that anyone would easily overlook during a single roadside stop at his Coral Castle.
I'm also no genius when it comes to deciphering code but being the skeptic I went the next step.

Format: Paperback
After excitedly running downstairs & telling my husband about how Edward Leedskalnin would only respond to precisly two rings at his Rock Gate, I eagerly ran back upstairs to return to reading this book, anticipating a world of secret knowledge opened up to me through revelations about the incredible precision Leedskalnin must have employed in building his fantastic rock garden and in writing his mysterious works about magnetic currents.
However, I soon realized that the part about the two doorbell rings was the only part of this book I would really be able to understand. In a nutshell, it would appear that the author theorizes that Leedskalnin used a double mirror, a WWII enigma machine, the Bible, the properties of light, and his own wit and imagination to encode ancient knowledge about the mysteries of life (including anti-gravity) into both his rock garden and also his works on magnetic current. Also important is the apparent Eastern orientation of Leedskalnin's rock works and written works--all, literally, physically, and figuratively.
The author seems to imply that one could take a dollar bill and wend it through Leedskalnin's written documents to find the answers. Maybe I will try that, because I really couldn't get it from reading this book. I think the author has some interesting things to say about Leedskalnin's works, and offers food for thought and interesting perspectives on the man; but I would venture to say that anyone looking here for THE ANSWERS to the many mysteries posed by Leedsklanin and his amazing feats will come away from this book with more questions.

This book has alot of bad reviews, and for good reason. Those of you who are lazy, dont like to read, or 'do simple math' should not buy this book, it is drivel to you. You will be bored, confused, and when you are scratching your head, you will start blaming the author for 'making things up' or 'writing a book to make money'. That would be a waste of your time, the stores, the shipping company, and the tree that was killed to print the paper on. Dont waste your money.

But if you can take into consderation, that you are choosing to turn to another book, to solve the riddles left in the book of another man, than maybe you should also be prepared to seek these answers outside of both of these books. There are appendices in the back of this book for a reason, including morse code, greek and more. If you expect these to be the answers without doing any work, turn back now. But if you want to know more, and are willing to see beyond the printed word, and enjoy the satisfaction of solving a riddle on your own, with the tools to get there, than this is a great read, good luck.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but the pictures found especially in the appendix of this book are PRICELESS!

These pictures depict religious sects, secret organizations and strange looking beings along with one interesting picture of Edward Leedskalnin working an unusual machine while wearing a strange metal mask.

There is also one profound picture that is not only astounding but mind opening.

Who would have ever had the insight to mirror the everyday pictures published in the forgotten past bt Edward Leedskalnin to reveal a path to his hidden life for all to see and comprehend?

What a find!
