An absolute must read book.
The author sets out to try and create alternative answers to the whole history of Egypt and the Egyptian lifestyle.
All is needed is an open mind to delve into a myriad of facts and enjoy this book to its fullest.
The author uses a fantastic array of evidence to put forward his ideas on how the Egyptians lived and how they were possibly using more advanced technology than we know today. The book opens up a whole new world to the reader and will have you questioning your whole existence all the way through.
Even as a non-fiction book it is almost impossible to put down, every page will reveal more and will leave you wondering about the truth behind the Egyptian life.
The depth of the investigations and the wide range of accounts used in the book is breathtaking, enough to ensure that even the most sceptical reader takes an interest in what is being written.
Having read many books on similar subjects in the past I have yet to find a book which comes up with so many viable answers and alternatives to current theory.
It is a fabulously written book and if you don't agree I will give you your money back.

Herbie Brennan has been my favorite investigator to the masses for a long time (it started with his "Occult Reich" in the 70s, which needs a reprint.) In this outing he unleashes his considerable investigative skills on the ancient Egyptians, and asks the famous questions, "How much did they know, when did they know it, and HOW did they know it?" He delves deeply into subjects you'd never associate with the ancients -- psionics? sonics? -- yet his style is so clear, crisp and informative that it breezes along easily. Everything he brings to the table has a point, and the judgement is your to make by books end. A supurb peformance!

A quite extraordinary insight into how the ancient Egyptians may have built the Great Pyramid using various techniques some of which are in use today, but only in limited numbers.
The conclusion, that there was an older and far more advanced civilisation, is hard to ignore, but the lack of concrete proof which is freely admitted by the author makes it difficult to believe.
Still, this is an intelligently written book, with many interesting anecdotes all coming together to form one perfect whole.

I have a couple of problems with this book. I think the author jumps to a number of startling conclusions based on at best flimsy evidence and at worst simple supposition. While I am firmly of the belief that the ancient Engyptians were more technically accomplished than we give them credit for, I find that some of Brennan's claims are bordering on ludicrous. He makes the claim that a set of hieroglyphs that apparently depicts, amongst other things, a helicopter is a sign that ancient Egyptians had sophisticated powered devices at their disposal. He stops short of the claim that Egyptians actually *had* helicopters, but as I see it, you can draw only two conclusions from a helicopter-shaped hieroglyph: either it's an intriguing coincidence that must mean something else, or it actually depicts a helicopter. Sadly, earlier in the book, Brennan reminds us that hieroglyphic is "an actual phonetic script and not simple picture signs" which kind of pours cold water on any claims that these hieroglyphs depict the physical objects they are supposed to represent. The book also jumps between the civilisation of ancient Egypt and overly lengthy histories of people such as Nikola Tesla. OK, I can see the connection with points that Brennan is making, but he spends too much time elaborating on the works of such people and too little explaining exactly what evidence would suggest the Egyptians could have constructed similar technology. In all, a fairly interesting read but I'd advise taking most of Brennan's claims with a pinch or two of salt.
