This review is from: THE COMPLETE PYRAMID SOURCEBOOK (Paperback)
Firstly, the book is available as a free download from the Internet Archive - so please do not waste your money! (I was halfway through converting this to a Kindle-readable ebook but I gave up because the book simply is not worth reading.)
Secondly, don't waste your time downloading it! This is by far and away the most badly-written book I've ever read on the subject of the pyramids; it is disjointed, jumps about from one subject to another, and the author constantly makes claims with no backing, no footnotes, no references, no nothing: we are just supposed to accept everything he says at face value. Ok, we already know from other sources that many of these things are so, but I would have still thought that supplying references should be essential in a "source-book". The author's treatment of the Great Pyramid's history is shockingly superficial, especially given the whole chapters he devotes to Russian fibreglass pyramids later in the book, and whilst the pictures are interesting, they are not interesting enough to justify the effort in reading through the author's sterile commentary along with its redundantly repetitive phraseology. (It really is not necessary to refer to "the Great Pyramid" as "the Great Pyramid" 6 times in succession in the same short paragraph; use of the word "it" would streamline the prose and make it appear the author has put a little thought into his writing.)
The inclusion of research papers on the pyramid might have been interesting in a better-written book; however, the fact that they are mostly available elsewhere makes this effort superfluous in that respect as well. Perhaps the worst thing of all about this book is the fact that the author is apparently a PhD.; without a doubt it is the worst-written book I have ever read by someone with such credentials, and personally I would be embarrassed to put my name, never mind my academic qualifications, on such an effort.
Don't waste your time and money on this rubbish; Secrets Of The Great Pyramid by Peter Tompkins whacks it to the wide in every conceivable way.
