Book Description

15 Jun 2002
Crop circles, those beautiful and complex patterns that are visible from the air in fields around the world, have long fascinated the public, media, and scientific community. Vital Signs is a comprehensive guide for newcomers to these puzzling patterns and an essential history for those who are already intrigued. Illustrated with hundreds of full-color and black-and-white photos, this chronological and photographic history is an accessible discussion of the various crop circle theories, physical and statistical evidence, and the surprising effects these formations have had on observers and researchers.

From the Publisher

Andy Thomas is one of England's most prominent crop circle researchers and this book, his third and most comprehensive on the subject, has been described by many reviewers as the definitive guide to this mysterious phenomenon. The success of Vital Signs can be gauged by the fact that it is now into its second reprint less than two years since it was first published (revised slightly since its initial edition). It continues to be one of our strongest sellers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bountiful harvest 22 Jan 2011
Having read The Truth Agenda, I was familiar with Andy's approach to subject matter which, for many, would be hard to swalllow. In that later work, Andy superbly illustrates a very wide cross section of alternative perspectives on many aspects of the world and the mysteries within it which the modern scientific orthodoxy and political conservatism have deemed too radical for their consideration (or so we are led to believe).

What Andy does as well as anyone I've read - and I've read a few authors over the years - is to set out the evidence in such a way as to appear impartial and unbiased at the same time as representing the material in the most positive light. He is not an advocate for hippie sentimentalism. His methodology is hard-nosed and empirically driven. Yet his humanity is also clear for all to see. He makes ostensibly bizarre concepts accessible and even seductive through a balanced and coherent assessment of the best evidence available in each area under discussion. If you had previously read no other book on esoteric/non-mainstream subject matter, Andy's book would give a perfectly good grounding on much of it and a sound basis for further exploration. In this respect, he is 'the opener of the ways' for the genuine truth seeker.

His book Vital Signs focusses on the mystery of crop-circles, which have been appearing all over the world with increasing complexity for the last thirty years (and before, though less well documented). The majority of these - and usually the best - have occurred near ancient sites in Wiltshire, such as Avebury and Stonehenge. To this day, no-one has adequately explained how they might be made and for what purpose.
