The secrets of Atlantis, Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, the Sphinx and the Bermuda Triangle, to name a few, were fully understood by only one man in the last century, Ed Leedskalnin! So why has so little been written about a man with a fourth-grade education who could move blocks of coral weighing over three-thousand pounds...and do so using only the most rudimentary tools? Why do we not have access to volumes of information about an individual who could (and did) devise an apparatus capable of powering an automobile without the utilization of fuel, oil or water? And why, given the fact that Mr. Leedskalnin proved his abilities to the world, were scientists, historians, mathematicians, archaeologists and astronomers not beating his door down in an effort to ascertain his secrets?
While we may never know the answers to these questions, one man has devoted his entire life to telling the story of the mystical, magical world of Ed Leedskalnin! In this magnificent work of literary genius, Joe Bullard has succeeded in shedding a multitude of light on the astonishing, astounding and often delightfully entertaining existence that was Ed's life. With a writing style that draws the reader in from the very first sentence to the very last word, Joe Bullard captures the life and times of a human enigma.
Ed Leedskalnin was the personification of the `living legend.' His innermost essence is portrayed in such a manner that the reader ends their journey feeling as though they have met Ed and shared in his life first-hand. Jilted on the night before his wedding by Agnes Scuffs, a teenage girl some ten years his junior, Ed left his homeland and ultimately settled in Florida.

Format: Paperback
The book is about the life and lost love of Edward Leedskalin.He was a Lativan emigrant ,who settled south of Miami,on the swampland edge,at Homestead,Florida.Ed bought some of the marshland long before Disney's engineers built their own 'Magic-castle' just nearby. Ed was able to 're-discover' the ancient art of stone levitation.A lost practice perhaps known by such legendary figures as Stonehenge's Merlin and the builders of the Great Pyramids of Giza.Modern engineers can only loosely speculate,and yet still today, can not verify the true building methods used.Ed Leedskalin was able to utilize this forgotten skill and never told a soul about his secret engineering methods.Ed probably felt that the stone-secrets would be revealed to other 'chosen ones',by heavenly visiting builders.What amazed me most was that a few select global people with those "almond-oriental shaped eyes" ,may be the decendants of an ancient space-traveling group of beings.They were the 'chosen ones' ,who were and are skilled in advanced concepts of Nature and the ways of the Universe.Could Ed Leedskalin have been one of these extra-territorial time-travelers? Was the story of his "sweet sixteen" lost love just a cover for his plan to build advanced engineered stone monuments ,so the humaniod transplants could track celestrial movements and commune with mother-ship UFOs ? There are many excellent ,funny and some heart-breaking personal stories presented throughout.If you want to be one of the few informed reading people ,seperate from the ignorant public masses,then read this enlightening book!

This book is well written and tells of a mans love of a woman, tells how he knew how take the skills of the building of the Pyramids.. How he took this info and build the Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida. He claims to have cut over 1100 tons of jagged coral stone. Ed Leedskalnin made his own tools and He took the secret with him to his grave in 1951
This is a great book for Florida History.. He had a fourth grade education can you amagine what he could of done these days...

Format: Paperback
This is a labor of love. The author sells it for only $23 on [...] Anyway, what makes this book superior is that the author is not from a scientific background. For this reason, he is able to direct your attention to the mysteries surrounding Ed Leedskalnin without going off on tangents. The information here cannot be bettered. In fact, outside of getting Leedskalnin's books and visiting Coral Castle, this book seems to be the only worthwhile alternative to studying Leedskalnin. The author points out clues about Leedskalnin's innovative abilities in creating coral castle. For example, Leedskalnin fixed a watch and created a bug catcher for the flying cockroaches. He was an innovator par excel lance. And he coveted his insights because they were apparently the happy result of hard won labor. Whether or not his patent can be found is unknown at the moment. He was a loner because he loved his work so much. Therefore, he truly had the personality of an innovator and was branded an eccentric as a result. Metaphysical explanations about the man's achievements miss this point. How he did what he did remains a mystery. This is especially true since, like Tesla, his little home at coral castle was raided at his death in 1951 and much of his inventions stolen. Like Tesla, it was probably the authorities who confiscated much of his inventions and perhaps papers. Neglecting to practice problem solving on one's own, and practicing co-dependence on educational institutions (they live off your money, and you lazily live off what they spoon feed you) has handicapped many a mind from acquiring greatness. It was having only a 4th grade education that made Leedskalnin brilliant. That was his strength, not his weakness. He could see insights into nature because his vision wasn't skewed by education. Rather, he was self-educated. He loved solving puzzles and he loved creating them.
