Format: Paperback
If you will notice the rating in the reviews of this book will either be 1 or 5 stars but no in-betweens. THis is perhaps do to the polarizing nature of the subject and the many fears that people tend to harbor. I found this book to be very illuminating and a confirmation to something that I already knew from either other sources or from pure insight. But regardless of the numerous reviews here nothing can take away from the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in the year 2012? Coincidence? THe book was not written for a scientific journal, so it does sound speculative at times, but once you read and understand the implications and the sources from which the authors have drawn their data, it is highly illuminating.

This book is essentially a self-important book report! The auuthor has perused several touchstone books in the realm of alternative science, specifically those having to do with end times prophesies, cataclysms, and pole shifts! Notable among these are works by Hapgood, Bauval, and Flem-Ath!

Do yourself a favor, read the originals! This book adds nothing new to the discussion! Rather, it serves as a "book report" on the work of others, presented in breathless style, with 15 exclamation points on every page! What is up with all the exclamation points?! I could have lived with less punctution and more, I don't know, ideas! Since I've read most of the books this reports on, it was ultimately pointless!

Start with Charles Hapgood and the Flem-Ath book, When the Wky Fell!

Lots has already been said about the book in reviews, good and bad, so I won't go into my own opinion. I did however, want to say something about the mathematical side of the proofs used in this book, since many people without mathematical backgrounds seemed interested in the validity of this aspect of the author's claims.

The math used in this book is "correct" as far as the calculations themselves go. The author's addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are correctly figured as written. The problem though, is that Where he gets his numbers from, and the Reasons behind his figures and logic-chains unfortunately has NO logical validity.

Numbers and math can be manipulated however people see fit; that's what mathematics is good for - manipulation. Much like how we can formulate any sentence we like in a language, even if the sentence is grammatically correct that does not mean that it conveys a fact.

Purple bananas sometimes have evil intentions; cats with feet on their head instead of ears should be wary of them.

This could be a grammatically correct example of a statement in the English language, but it does not prove the existence of oddly colored bananas, the sentience of fruit, or anatomically freaky felines. The math in this book is much like the sentence above and would not be given any weight as "proof" to Anybody with a strong mathematical background.

I recommend to anybody following along with the math in this book to question the author's selection of numbers. Where did he get most of the numbers from that he uses in his proofs?

Where did he get the number 68,302 from to begin with, and why did he decide to divide it by 26 and 37? Further, why would he then subtract the result?

Format: Paperback
People love doomsday prophecies...the fact that some people actually take this seriously is a testament to that. What we have here are two pseudo-scientists believing in an incredible conclusion (The Earth will be ripped apart by geo-magnetic forces in 2012) and then basing all their "research" to support that conclusion. I've seen this countless times...each time is more entertaining than the last...."Scientists" using "mathmatical proof" to support a variety of doomsday predictions.

Whats wrong with this?

1.) Most discoveries and research successes in science are by accident...true research is not with a set conclusion. SETI researches did not intend to find microwave background radiation...but they did. Penicillin was discovered on accident. Pavlov's theory of conditioned response was on accident. On the other hand...these guys are already convinced the world will blow up in 2012...and base their research to prove it. Most true science is done in reverse...your research leads to your conclusion...not the other way around.

2.) The actual "research" in this book is laughable at best. Their are no controls on what numbers they use, where they get their formulas from, etc. I'm sure if I looked into it I could "Mathmatically prove" that I'm related to Jesus by using my height, my D.O.B., my Zodiac sign, and the distance between my elbow and wrist. All im saying is that people can manipulate numbers however they want to prove however they want.

3.) One of the cornerstones of the book is that when the stars (BTW Venus is not a star) are in a certain position....the sun's magnetic field will go bonkers, causing extreme geo-magnetic activities on the Earth...and that such an event has already occured about 11,000 years ago.
