5.0 out of 5 stars The Cygnus Mystery, 20 Dec. 2006
This review is from: The Cygnus Mystery: Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life's Origins In The Cosmos (Hardcover)
I absolutely LOVED this book. I made sure I got my copy early, as I have been waiting for another book from Mr Collins, since loving his last book, too.

Mr Collins has a habit of writing books that give you a unique goosebump effect, found nowhere else. This book is somewhere between Robert Graves and Stephen Hawking.

It's a rare type of book for the subject matter, too. I've read plenty of books on the topics covered, shamanism, stone age culture, Avebury, and astrophysics, and have to say that The Cygnus Mystery covers them all with a degree of smartness you don't usually find. Andrew's book stands on its own, as is, with very good, solid research, and a real depth of grounded information, rather than a whole bunch of conjecture and jargon. You know from reading it that he really knows his stuff. So many authors nowadays don't do enough research, or use previous ideas and rehash them. Andrew's done something new and challenging and unique, and that has been a pattern for him throughout his long career as a writer.

His writing style is great, very unputdownable. I found in The Cygnus Mystery a book I am sad to finish, and can't wait for his next effort, which I'm sure will be just as good.

I'm sure Andrew will be thought of in years to come as a real ground-breaker in a number of different fields.
