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.
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.
Well, relatively speaking!
Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince claim that large chunks of the "alternative" milieu, including Robert Temple, Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval, are (perhaps unwittingly) being used as puppets by a vast and sinister conspiracy involving the U.S. intelligence services, bizarre quasi-religious cults and (in a worst case scenario) actual space aliens or disembodied spirit-beings. I have more mundane explanations, but I wouldn't be surprised if a double-check of Picknett's and Prince's sources would confirm many of the criss-crossing connections in their book. After all, it seems to be more or less proven that the U.S. military carried out secret parapsychological experiments during the 1970's, and that many of those involved really did believe in supernatural powers.
Picknett and Prince make several interesting observations. First, they point out that many of the alternative speculations about ancient Egypt aren't based on solid research, but on the channelled messages of Edgar Cayce. The ARE, a group of true believers in Cayce's readings, have financed their own digs at the Giza plateau.Read more ›

This book is crap. Plus they have the nerve to insult Robert Bauval. I threw mine in the trash.Published 8 months ago by Erica Morris
Way too detailed for me, and lost sight of the intention of book because of it.Published 8 months ago by baroness
While I have not read it in its entirety, I have enjoyed what I have read. The writers have done amazing research and allow readers to decide for themselves what to believe.Published 11 months ago by Isabeau
Interesting read although I felt the authors devoted more time and space than was necessary in "bad mouthing" others.Published 22 months ago by Daniel Barber
I learned some, but mostly I enjoyed Lynn's discourse on the group of folk involved in writing books on this subject. She's honest and forthright. Thanks.Published on February 21, 2014 by Amazon Customer
