The book is well written, and the flow is logical.
John B. Ringer
IF so, then this book may be instrumental in bringing this possibility to the forefront and provide you with solid scientific evidence that such may be the case.
Dale A. Reece
Read the book and I think you too will see why this could be one ot the greatest scientific discoveries ever.

As a medical doctor who conducted research on the Starchild skull for two years in 2000-2001, I can assure the reader that this skull is not only real, but that it is perhaps the most fascinating enigma that I have ever had the opportunity to conduct research upon. Lloyd's enthusiasm despite personal financial difficulties has been outstanding, and he has written a very readable, accurate, truthful and entertaining account of this most mysterious relic. I can only hope that, one day in the not too distant future, LLoyd will be writing a second edition when further research gives us the definitive answer to what the skull really is. Dr.T.Robinson

It's a great book. Imagine yourself in Europe 1,000 years ago and you found photos of the Earth with the Moon in the background as taken from the space shuttle and you had the wisdom and open-mindedness to realize what they were. Now imagine trying to get anyone to accept what we all know now as the simple truth. Since those times certainly many things have changed, but a great many have stayed the same. This book chronicles Lloyd Pye's near decade of struggles to solve the mystery of this strange skull that he has become convinced is of an extraterrestial/human hybrid and the incredible difficulty he has had even getting simple tests done and trying to get out the truth without getting heckled and ridiculed. If nothing else, this story is a lesson in how the scientific community circles its wagons in the face of something that could contradict accepted dogma. But it's much more than that. I didn't think there was anything to this business prior to reading the book, but I must admit I am now, like Lloyd Pye, very anxious to find out all there is to know about this skull. This book shoud end to be continued... The final, and no doubt most important test involves the nuclear DNA and won't likely be done for several years. In case you're wondering why it will take so long, the technique for sequencing human DNA didn't work! The mitochondrial DNA showed the mother to be human; the nuclear DNA (includes the father's), however is not! A new process has been developed to read Neanderthal DNA (it's not specie specific) but it is only done at one lab and there is a waiting list. Read the book and I think you too will see why this could be one ot the greatest scientific discoveries ever.

I am not normally moved to write book reviews, but occasionally a book comes along that catches the attention and demands support. With The Starchild Skull, Lloyd Pye has not only produced a riveting page-turner (I consumed every word in just two sittings) but also a serious case study of one of the weirdest relics ever known to science. I will confess immediately that I know Lloyd personally and can vouchsafe his integrity. But more important perhaps, I have actually met the so-called Starchild - and can speak for its authenticity! So don't let anyone kid you - and I'm sure they'll try - that Lloyd is in this for the money or the Starchild is a hoax. The author is genuine and the Skull is for real. And if you think that Mr Pye must be a bit weird for sacrificing eight years of his life and pushing himself to the edge of bankruptcy to find out whether this thing is human or alien, or a combination of both, then know this - the Skull itself is infinitely weirder than you can possibly imagine. In fact, the more one studies it, with all the cutting edge tools of modern laboratories, the more and more weird it gets. But the triumph of this book, and what makes it a potential bestseller, is the way Lloyd deftly handles the complex science so that it never comes between the reader and the reading experience. So the Starchild Skull becomes a beautiful, engrossing, warm, and often humorous, account of Lloyd's up hill and down dale encounters with alternative researchers whose colourful lives are a wonder to behold and mainstream scientists who defend at all costs their cosy world view of human evolution. Which brings us to the nub of the story - is the Skull a unique human mutation, or is it evidence that a higher intelligence once visited the Earth and perhaps interbred with man?Read more ›

Lloyd Pye is doing a heroic job, with this book and with all his activities related to the Starchild Skull, getting the matter settled by way of good, hard science and getting it before the public to consider. It should be interesting, when the complete recovery of the genome demonstrates that the Starchild was a human-alien hybrid, to see how the hidebound mainstream scientific community tries to wiggle out of it. But you know what? Good science is good science, and DNA is DNA. Here we will finally have the proof we need that this planet has been visited by nonhumans. Lloyd Pye's book splendidly chronicles the story of how the truth about the Starchild skull (discovered in northern Mexico) is proving out to be anomalous in a big way. Explainable as human deformity? No-- read the book, and you will understand how improbable that is. It's time for a larger view of the universe, and by way of such work as this, we're getting there as a species. A must-read!

Lloyd Pye's six-year saga with the skull that was handed to him almost on a fluke resembles a Joe Campbell Hero's Journey more than anything else. He writes masterfully his story of hanging in there against big odds without false modesty yet with no trace of phony self-importance.

IMHO, the story of the skull is complete: evidence in; jury gone home. Lloyd did the job, and the mainstream science gatekeepers still demanding a nuclear DNA test as the only valid criterion of the skull's true anomalous standing is just more evidence of their boring brickishness. These wonks won't budge even when a nuclear DNA test confirms the rest of the highly extraordinary features of this skull.

So Potential Readers Whom Only the Smoking Gun Will Satisfy: Don't pick this one up by the barrel, or you'll burn your fingers.
