In four months I am going on a cruise, and one of the points of interest is Alexandria. From there, according to the advertisements of the cruise line, I will be able to journey to Cairo and see the Great Pyramid.

Having little knowledge other than that gained in school, I sought to find out some details about the Great Pyramid. I scanned the ebook library for interesting--and cheap!--books on the subject. This book fit the bill.

Picture yourself in a large lecture hall of a university in England about 125 years ago. The lecturer is listing references, measurements, mathematical equations, historical facts, religious considerations, and an intimate knowledge of the Great Pyramid in an effort to explain its importance. That is the feeling you get from this book. It is long. It is often difficult and tedious to follow. The references are obscure and the calculations are numbing. But I couldn't put the book down!

The lectures are written in the style of 19th-century Great Britain--a bit cumbersome and a bit haughty. I was, however, amused by the author's intolerance of anything French, especially the metric system.

According to the author, the measurements of the Pyramid form a perfect Square of a Circle, which translates to Earth, the Cosmos, Heaven, God, and Christianity! Not only that, but--to build the Pyramids--God directed descendents of ...

Oh, I've almost given it away! This is not an easy book. It is not light reading. But I read and read and read--at home, in a parking lot, and in the Ford Customer Lounge. I liked it...and it was cheap.

>>Update: My cruise line cancelled its stop for a visit to the Pyramids. Because of the instability in the region, we're going to Turkey instead. I suppose Egyptian liberty is more important than my 12-hour tour. Maybe next time...

Format: Paperback
Having read this excellent work before, I wanted to acquire a fresh copy of it for sharing from my library. Unfortunately, this paperback edition is merely a very poor photocopy (yes, photocopy!) of the small out-of-print paperback edition that I already had. Too bad.

In this work the author quotes extensively from other sources, which is fine, but it reads like a patchwork of quotes. If you have any prior knowledge of the Giza pyramid, I do not recommend this.
