As an unintended consequence of her research she has given authorities by far their best tool to monitor grave robbing which with all the chaos in Middle East is rampant right now.
The book is scientific and helpfull but i would have appreciated more pictures and photos.
Tables with costs of imagery are worthless because everything has changed drastically since 2009.
It is clear that the author is not an expert on remote sensing and she makes some important erroneous statements about the physics underlining the science.
Has the feel of a book put together in a rush and so not carefully organized. It reads like a first draft.
It has a few interesting stories of real situations, but the scientific treatment of remote sensing is very weak and just plain wrong in many instances. Some of the author's misunderstanding of remote sensing lead her to erroniously conclude that there was evidence of Viking settlements in Canada. A very expensive field excavation in 2016 resulted in nothing.
Dr. Parcak is not a pioneer in the use of remote sensing in archeology. There were many before her and some wrote excellent texts still in print. I can think of no compelling reason to purchase this book and several reasons to pull it from bookstore shelves due to gross inaccuracies.
