Once again, a comprehensive group of authors works as an ensemble cast to produce a nearly encyclopedic analysis of a Dan Brown work for our betterment. Each of the authors has penned an essay on their own particular area of expertise, as a leading expert in the field, with the possible exception of James Sanborn, as the sculptor of KRYPTOS, located inside the security of the CIA's Langley center, since he is not only the leading expert, but the "keeper of the 'keys'" as well.
At the other edge, author Elonka Dunin [Nola K(ay)e] does an exceptional job of defining KRYPTOS from the public's view, as she is probably the leading repository of KRYPTOS knowledge outside the mind of Mr. Sanborn!
This book is highly recommended to those who want to understand how "The Lost Symbol" relates to our real world.
