Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'll confess that I haven't quite finished reading my way through this book yet. However, in summary, I can say that:

- On the one hand the book introduces a number of very interesting topics presented in a free and independent-thinking manner (which is always healthy and refreshing), but the items often seem to have nothing to do with building anti-gravity devices;

- On the other hand it is largely written by people who seem to have very little basic knowledge of physics or mathematics.

As an example of my second point, the opening chapter doesn't leave the door open to the reader's confidence in the writer. I found myself writing critiques in the margins, as a teacher would do when marking an assignment submitted by a student! Such wording as "... the product of mass multiplied by ..." is not from the pen of someone with much knowledge of even basic college mathematics. Furthermore, he states that half an object's mass multiplied by the square of its velocity is its MOMENTUM, whereas every half-awake college physics student will tell you that that's the object's KINETIC ENERGY! He also bases much of his opening arguments on the statement that gravity is an acceleration downwards (i.e. towards the centre of the Earth) whereas gravity is actually a force, acting towards the centre of the Earth, which causes objects to undergo acceleration downwards when not prevented from doing so by some other force. Likewise, he claims that anti-gravity is an acceleration upwards, although, of course, anti-gravity would actually be a force opposing the force of gravity. Not quite the same thing.

I looked through the book, and read some of the chapters. The anti-gravity handbook is quite amazing - I couldn't put it down.

This book details various supposed methods of defeating the effects of gravity other than rocketry and atmospherically bound methods. Everything from inertial drives, crystal levitation devices, and free energy devices are outlined. Very interesting reading from a far out author.

Brought as a gift. But have been told that the book is great and exactly what was expected.

The REAL deal about this book...please read before buying. 10 Sept. 2002
By M. Twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok. I hate to ruin the fun of some people but this book is a collection of science fiction unproven theories and scientific blunders. This book was writen as a joke for childress's intelligent buddies. It is just a book of jokes...Nothing in this book will give you any ideas on accually doing anything anti-gravity. This entire group of books is just enterainment for overly smart and mean people. For instance it says "if you accually read it" you can create anti gravity in your home if you take this gyroscope here do this and that and this...then remove the downward force...Did you see that last part...all you have to do is follow these simple instructions and then remove the downward force...well that downward force is gravity. It took me 3 months to convince my brother this book is fiction. People have brought law suits against mr Childress because this book is a joke...I on the other hand found this book to be very amusing...i loved Dr. Zitenbops(sp) generic anti gravity equation..."STP = the unit of lubricaation" "G = 1 gravity and 1 gravity = 1x10-6 gollygees" "G! = 1 shep,= to 1.37 moecurlys"
The book keeps getting funnier everytime I read it...But if your sense of humor is not like this then dont buy it...THIS HAS BEEN ANOTHER EPISODE OF THE REAL DEAL!!!

This book is nonsense and completely useless! 9 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book hoping to learn about gravity theories, such as those by Nikola Tesla. I was hoping this book would provide usefull information on building gravity free devices. Instead I got a book that is a circus sideshow presentation of a scientific anomoly.
Do I really care about a Santa Cruiz parlor trick that makes it look like you have stepped into a gravity well. This was a trick, why is it in this book. This is just one example of the preposturous assumtions made in this book. There is an example of a "crucial component" that is simply an escher like rectangle with some holes in it. PAHLEEZE, what hogwash. This book presents theories that the moon does not really exist, and that we never landed there. Does this have anything to do with gravity theories?
This book would have been usefull if it contained information on how to build resonate magnetic devices. Not one thing on ACTUAL gravity altering devices. If you watch the x-files religiously, if you took way to much acid and you don't like reality anymore, if you go to star trek conventions, then this book was written for you. It is consipritol garbage. Everybody knows the goverment suppresses knowledge, big deal. Teach me something new, like anti-gravity. This book will make you laugh for 15 minutes, then you will be angry that you wasted $12 bucks on it

Every layman can sink his teeth into this one! 24 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ready to carry out some backyard anti-gravity experiments? Then buy this book! It begins with a very detailed discussion of "gyro-biased" propulsion systems, and moves quickly into electromagnetic and solid-state devices. This book is crammed full of "Things to make ya go hummm!" Find out for yourself why some noted scientists still don't believe man ever went to the moon!

Entertaining and thought provoking 1 Nov. 2000
By William Shane Crowson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Okay, if you are looking for detailed plans for building a working anti-G device this is not the book for you. If you want to learn to look at science and the world in a different way then buy this book. You will find some really cool and off the wall theories as well as some entertaining fiction. I enjoyed this book immensely and so did my 8 year old daughter. After reading this book you will be inspired to do further research in anti-g field. T.T. Townsend and A. Einstien were not kooks and their ideas are valid. Buy this book and start experimenting for yourself.

A light-hearted introduction to advanced propulsion systems. 24 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Your journey towards anti-gravity research should begin here. This book is lavishly illustrated with diagrams and photographs, describing the inner most workings of theoretical anti-gravity engines, and the role of the "world grid" in UFO propulsion. If you believe that certain technologies have and are being suppressed or covered up by the governments of this planet, this book is for you.
