Review

Picknett and Prince are first-class storytellers and their magical mystery tour is totally enthralling DAILY MAIL Over the last few years there has been an explosion of books rewriting archaeology, history and religion. Some focus on new interpretations of the life and teachings of Jesus, others on the Templars and Freemasons, and yet others on ancient monuments suc Picknett and Prince, who have written their own share of such books (In His Own Image: The Story of the Turin Shroud and The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ) now take their turn at debunking books on the pyramids, early But this is only the beginning of their book. The authors summon large amounts of evidence to argue that behind such modern authors on the pyramids and Mars there might lie a hidden agenda, involving channelled messages from the Ennead, the nine major gods of Egypt; a wide range of parapsychologists and scientists, including some from NASA; the defence and intelligence communities; and even some politicians. The nine gods may or may not be real, they say, and channelling might simply come from the subconscious, though they accept phenomena such as Remote Viewing as entirely real. Whether their worrying conclusions are valid or whether they have simply come up with another conspiracy theory, Picknett and Prince's book is not only controversial but thought-provoking too.' David V Barrett, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW

Its always intresting to read another viewpoint.

I won't even take it back to that bookstore for credit - I'll throw it in the paper trash, so no one else will waste their time and money.

It looks to us like we were one of many who just paid for their trip to Hawaii.

I read this book and found it quite interesting, if at times a bit hard to keep straight due to the diversity of the materials provided. But I did find it useful as a portrayal of a group, or groups, of rather spooky "New Agers", in some type of common effort with maverick archeologists, Christian fundamentalists, intelligence-connected types, etc., whose agendas appear quite murky. The authors admit they do not quite know what these connections mean, but the connections do indeed seem to be there, and I found the account fascinating, if in the end still quite puzzling.

Other readers, as judged from the other reviews here, clearly have widely varying views on the value of the book, and so it evidently will not appear to everyone.

One shortcoming cited scornfully by a couple of earlier reviewers dealt with the lack of an index. I bought the original, hardcover British version of the book when in first appeared, and it had a 20-page index, which made the book much easier to use. The publishers of the US reprint evidently have a rather low opinion of American readers, and thus elected to delete the index, presumably in order to save a few cents per volume. This strikes me as despicable, and readers (or potential readers) should be aware that the actual authors of the book indeed included a very extensive index.

Format: Paperback
This book will offend many mainstream believers. Whilst it is indeed difficult to follow if you are not a big reader, the content is rich and attempting to expose some very relevent facts that would seemingly be ignored, particularly by the traditional school of Egyptologists. It also conveys information about the rather shocking methods employed by modern governments to control the general populous. There are also references to big names, such as Gene Roddenbury and Uri Geller. Books like this should not be taken too lightly, it is a serious attempt to show an untold side of an interesting story, it does not pass judgement or make wild claims it makes concluscions based on the facts and largely leaves it up to the reader to decide.

The title could be more appropriate and the content could be trimmed and formulated into a more versatile argument, much of the heavy fact detracts from the main point and on many occasions you will find yourself wondering what relevence a certain part has.

Overall.. A slow book, that may require two reads to gleen all the facts, but if you enjoy conspiracy and the search for the truth, this is well worth a look.

The book is a bit tough and I found myself re-reading parts of it on multiple occasions, but it's full of some really fascinating information and I deeply enjoyed the read. I especially liked the authors' methodology and very logical approach in the formulation of many of their arguments. It was so enthralling that it felt like a journey thru ancient Egypt into modern times. It also calls out a few popular blowhards who have made a nice living selling the idea that they have the answers to some of life's longest standing mysteries. It's true that you will not find a grand finale in this book, but it's not a fictional story... and the fact is that no one seems to truely know what the heck is going on. The authors stay true to their goal of relaying what they've found to the reader and it encourages you to think for yourself and come to your own conclusions, as we all should. I would recommend this book to a select few due to the nature of the subject matter... most scoff at anything that isn't widely accepted as fact by the supposed masses, and just can't accept that in all mans glory we still do not know why we are here, how we got here or even what exactly we are. I really wish I hadn't let my uncle borrow my copy... 2 years ago!

... 'The Stargate Conspiracy' is immaculately researched, and meticulously referenced. Not a single point is made within these pages that is not supported by a clearly specified and accessible reference. A well researched book does not need to make arguments and presumptions, Picknett and Prince merely draw the attention of the reader to a fascinating series of facts which allows any conclusions to be made independently and without emotive propaganda. Their approach as authors is down to earth and matter of fact, shedding scorn NOT on the great mysteries of life and the universe, but on the way in which they have been actively recruited, abusing the faith of well meaning people. A fascinating read, highly reccomended.

One might think they will find the truth about extraterrestrials and anienct egypt upon reading the front cover. You won't. You'll read a looooong boring and confusing story of the conspiracy that well-schooled people believe that aliens are going to land soon and change the world.
There are some interesting facts about the mysteries of ancient egypt which was the highlight of the book. I thought there'd be more of that. Most of the book is the conspiracy and many of the anecdotes of the conspiracy have a very loose connection to the point of the book. If these little stories were somewhat interesting this wouldn't be much of a problem but they are terribly drab. And after reading 200 pages of this with something interesting now and then, THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE A CONCLUSION. They don't know what to draw from what they present. The cover of the book says The Truth About Extraterrestrial Life and the Mysteries of Ancient Egypt. The back cover asks the questions like "what does this mean for mankind? Why are they keeping this information to themselves?" as if they are going to answer them. But they don't. They merely restate these questions. I'm glad I skimmed the last 100 pages. This book is misleading in its intent. What a waste of time.
