About the Author

Edward Leedskalnin (1887–1951, Miami) was an eccentric Latvian emigrant to the United States and amateur sculptor who, it is alleged, single-handedly built the monument known as Coral Castle in Florida. He was also known for his unusual theories on magnetism. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

If you buy this book to learn more about magnetic currents, I'm not sure you'll be too happy, either.
L. Anderson
This is a very poor reprint of the original text, and as pointed out before, this does not include the extensive collection of illustrations.
C. SMITH-NAILL
Don't waste your money on this one...if you really want to read it, get a copy from a library as well as newer information available.

I saw a blurb on some scifi show regarding Edward Leedskalnin and his Coral Castle, which prompted me to do more research on the Internet. I was fascinated and curious and I thought I knew what I was getting into when I purchased this book along with "How to Read His Writings" by Marlinski. My complaint is about the reprint and editing of "Magnetic Currents" and not about the content or Ed's writing technique. If you want to try to decode Ed's notebooks, DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION (Reprint by Health Research). They fixed spelling, grammar and did not use the original type fonts - all of which are believed to be clues about his work. They did not use any of the pictures from his original pamphlets, so that part of the puzzle is also missing. I gave it only one star because I could not use it for the reason I purchased it. If you buy this book to learn more about magnetic currents, I'm not sure you'll be too happy, either. Ed is kind of hard to follow, which makes me think there is more to his writing than his words. The Coral Castle website has a Gift Shop where they sell his writings, but I don't know if the booklets are copies of the originals or if they are also selling a "fixed" version.

Mr. Leedskalnin's book is difficult to read, but one must consider that English was not his native tongue. According to those who knew him, he was very friendly and extremely intelligent, but also entirely secretive about certain things. For example, he claimed to know how the pyramids were built, and he also stated that he knew the secrets of anti-gravity. Of the latter, at least, he proved it by creating Coral Castle near Homestead, Florida -- in the process he managed to lift numerous up-to-30-ton blocks of coral WITHOUT MODERN MACHINERY. (Now that is a wonder.) Perhaps my fascination with this man colors my opinion of him, but I can overlook his misspelled words, et cetera, when I consider his intelligence. (In my own personal life, I happen to have a younger brother who is dyslexic and blind in one eye -- he can barely spell/write -- but he's also one of the most brilliant people I've ever known.) In any case, anyone thinking of reading or purchasing this book needs to prepare for its difficult style of wording. There will be a great deal of reading and re-reading, plus deciphering to be done.

After studying Ed Leedskalnin for a while now, I just had to buy the book. But really for only one reason. To get the original picture of the perpectual motion holder drawing that came with the original pamplet. Instead I recieve a book with a picture of a atom with electrons on the cover. Which anyone one who has studied Leedskalin knows that Mr. Leedskalin did not believe in the existence of Electrons. This was a big disappointment. Other than that the book seems is very interesting and a must read for anyone interested in alternative physics. I do believe though that the publisher should include this picture if they are going to say they print up old and rare books in their entirety.

This book doesn't contain ANY of the diagrams Ed created to go with the text. It's impossible to understand without them.

I found a copy of them online, and it helped a LOT.

A complete copy of Ed's writings & diagrams can be obtained by calling the Coral Castle cashier at: 305-248-6345

Format: Paperback
Edward Leedskalnin, despite his lack of flare and articulate speech, most definatley has an emense understanding of energy and magnetics. Although he seems to speak in riddle, one can eventually sift out his meaning. If you can overlook the fact that he constantly labels the flow of electons as "magnets", you can surely and eventually understand his meanings. This may be a hard read but beleive me his knowledge is sound. You need only rotate a perfectly balanced- 30ton block of solid coral (Coral Castle) with your finger tip to realize his principles converge to sound knowledge and principle. Leedskalnin doesn't reach any conlusions, however, he does press upon the reader to understand his principles so that you may form a strong foundation and understanding of magnetics and even vibration. To what end? Anti-gravity of coarse.

Format: Paperback
First of all, this book is an important work. The man that wrote it re-discovered forces that, as yet, cannot be duplicated by anyone else, at least in this century! You will get out of this book what you put into it. At first glance, it's reads like a jumbled bunch of words that mean nothing, but then you would miss the point. This book is not for the casual reader looking for scientific answers to seemingly impossible feats, but it does gives insights into a complex man and his works. This book is in his own words and not perfect english, but is clear enough with re-reading to comprehend the message he is trying to convey.
I enjoyed the book and will study it for years to come. If Ed really did know how the pyramids were built, wouldn't his only work on magnetism deserve more than a cursory reading?
