In this engaging book, the creation and transport of Egyptian obelisks becomes the focus for a meandering trip through 3,500 years of history, careening at times into well-researched chapters about the occult, and generally providing lots of fun. Great rainy-day-on-the-sofa reading for history buffs. Lots of sidebars and informative drawings.
