Fascinating with excellent illustrations and explanations. Highly recommend. A must for anyone interested in history, mechanics or engineering. Great for youth to adult.

He lived during the alleged time of Jesus, born 10 AD. He worked for several of the churches and temples of Egypt. He worked for hire and for the godly ecclesiastic authorities. Ones that would pay him. Best known as a scientific inventor, mathematician, engineer and technician. Much of his works have been burnt into history by the same authorities that hired his services.

This will remain hidden by all of God’s authorities to this day.

He was a silent partner and behind the scenes technician with the legendary authorities of history. Heron was contracted to engineer miracles by several ecclesiastical engineers, and many of our Churches and Temples required engineers.
Heron was a famous revolutionary and innovative Engineering Consultant for the growing Church. This truth, his bosses would much rather keep silent. They, being so well employed themselves.
Heron’s designs were often used to fool the fools. Mostly to impress the ancient masses of illiterate, uneducated believers. Heron designed the first automatic door opener with a simple steam engine, fueled by the flames of the priests. Those believers who did not understand science or technology were totally impressed by this godly, miraculous and automatic action of the magical opening doors. This was only upon the command of the high priest. This was ancient magic. This was done by the gods themselves. His fools are these ancient temple goers and believers of this day.

The information is good and the price is dirt cheap. What fault can I possibly find with this book? It is produced by someone completely unfamiliar with any niceties of their desktop publishing program. No margins at top of the page; the type comes within 1/16 inch of the trim. The text bumps up against all the inset illustrations.

It is painful to read this book. Such great information and the reprinted illustrations are reasonably well produced for an on-demand book but so very, very ugly!

Did I mention it was really cheap and the information is good? My advice is to buy it if you want the information but wear dark glasses when you read it.
