What are crop circles and what do they mean? - Who - or what - is responsible for the thousands of complex patterns found in cereal crops all over the world? - Are they all made by hoaxers? - Are they made by aliens or Government satellites? - Are they a scream from a dying planet? - Are they a manifestation of human consciousness? - Is there an esoteric code hidden in their patterns that comprise a message for mankind? - Are we in danger and crop circles are some kind of warning signal? - Are they all created by natural earthly causes - magnetic fields, underground water, plasma vortices...rutting hedgehogs? This book brings the world up-to-date on the research into this fascinating subject. It takes you on a mysterious and informative ride into the world of the crop circle phenomenon, providing an overview and setting the record straight about the nature of crop circles, their origins and their meaning. The author also explores the many theories of crop circle formation, describes the author's first experience with crop circles and how this led him into his life's work and delves into his decades of work studying the phenomenon.

Taken from quite a spiritual, but very factual perspective, which will leave the open minded in awe and the skeptics in question.
Delivers information, from what I consider to be a non bias and humble position, very clear, precise and easily digestible.
If you looking for answers on the phenomena you will find this book educating, yet delightfully infuriating and will leave with more questions than when started. Which is, in no means negative.
I guess that the magic of Crop Circles. Enjoy!
As he is noting in one of the chapters, approximately 80% of all the crop circles he investigated in England from 1999 through the year 2000 were manmade. But that still leaves 20% of them, which simply cannot be explained as manmade, as many of those:
-demonstrated a unique magnetic signature
-the majority of circles (in UK) have occurred around ancient sacred sites such as Stonehenge, Avebury, and other megalithic complexes - which also suggests some "unexplained" involvement.
-some people visiting those circles experience physiological effects (including heightened awareness, feeling subtle energies, headaches, and a profound sense of peace)
-some of the circles seem to have healing properties (people claim spontaneous healings inside some of them)
-scientists have found cellular changes in plants associated with crop circles.
-unidentified balls of light have been seen and filmed in and around the formations (as well as in and around megalithic sacred sites)
Bear in mind that the book doesn't fully explain that phenomena, probably no book fully can (I can only agree with the author that the enigma may never be fully explained, because the phenomenon could be simply outside our realm of understanding). But it is an excellent introductory material for anybody interested in crop circles
The book also has a lot of photos, the great Appendix section with "the Andrews crop circle catalogue", the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section and even a "crop circle who's who". Even though the book was written in 2003, is it a still valid and well researched material.
1. Genuine formations (those exhibiting the anomalies listed below) are not created by human hands, quite simply because
2. Human hoaxers have so far been incapable of replicating these anomalies.
Genuine "crop circles" exhibit such artistry, size, and sheer perfection, often containing geometric patterns of such complexity that only computers can simulate, which in and of themselves seem to preclude any notion of their having been created by any human hands let alone a couple of hired (not tired, although that too...) old men with a stick and some string. I refer of course to Doug & Dave and others of that painfully inadequate ilk. Additionally, genuine formations contain evidence of certain anomalies which to many prove beyond doubt that they are not created by human hands, for human-made attempts never contain these effects. Some of those anomalies are:
No tracks leading to or from genuine formations. Formations formed some time within 30 minutes in some proven instances, despite huge size. No half-completed or "practise" formations found. Near-total perfection in the precision and layout of geometric shapes (those we can actually understand, that is!)
Plants not flattened and damaged but folded over and interwoven intricately in the most amazing patterns; where they are folded the stems are somehow biologically altered and healed, and the growth rate of these plants is significantly increased. Additionally, the growth rate for a linearly-decreasing distance around the formation is also superior to distant growth.
There are also what appear to be steam release holes blown in the then-healed bent-over nodes of some plants which often still thrive. These appear to attest to the presence of some kind of heat energy, possibly microwave.
Magnetic anomalies in and around formations. Microscopic magnetic spheres of unknown origin are left scattered in the soil. It is unknown whether it is these, or something else, which also creates huge variations in the magnetic field in and around the formation, with North fluctuating up to 15 degrees from true at times.
Light anomalies; photographs taken within newly-formed formations often show multiple ghost images which seem to be only explainable by variations in the speed of light within the formation itself.
There are possibly even aerial anomalies and/or gravitational anomalies: On the 22nd of October 1987 a very bizarre event occurred in the air over southern England. A Harrier TR5 vertical take-off jump jet disappeared during a test flight over the Salisbury Plain military zone in Wiltshire. As the jet approached Boscombe Down airbase, radio contact went dead and the aircraft went missing. A full land, sea and air search was launched. The Harrier was eventually spotted by an American military aircraft flying over South Wales. The American pilot spotted the Harrier flying on a set course and moved in alongside it sending a radio report of his finding. The canopy of the plane was shattered and there was no pilot flying the Harrier indicating the pilot had ejected out of the plane through the canopy.
The media named the Harrier the Ghost Plane. The plane eventually ran out of fuel and crashed 300 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean. The plane had flown over three series of crop circles and the body of the pilot was later found very close to a set of circles. Although the presence of circles was not that unusual in that area at that time of year, a dead pilot was.
Whilst of course there is no proof the ejection was caused by the formations, it is interesting that the military then approached the author for information about unexplained anomalies around these formations. He shared information on associated electromagnetic anomalies and various other phenomena, as they were investigating all possible explanations for the strange series of events including why the pilot was ejected from his craft through the canopy. An explanation was never found and the verdict was left open.
One of the strangest aspects of the whole story was that the pilot's body was found in such a place as to indicate he had ejected a second or two before flying over the formations, and that the course track appeared to show the Harrier was on auto-pilot and that it actually changed course a fraction of a second before flying over the centre of the three formations. It then remained unchanged again until it ran out of fuel. Unconnected? I am inclined to think not - the course change just before the formations is very obvious on the course track.
Additionally there are "balls of light" often witnessed before and after new formations and caught on video camera a few times. There is also no explanation for these.
If you are not yet aware of these things I can thoroughly recommend the book. Without getting into deep techno-speak it tells most of what is known (which admittedly is not a huge amount) and what is yet to be ascertained. The author also shows the extent governments will go to discredit the phenomenon in the eyes of the public; this naturally leaves huge questions to be answered, such as: if there is nothing of significance going on, why go to such lengths?
Put together, the anomalies listed above, and others not mentioned, together with the geometric perfection and apparent encoded mathematical references added to the apparent speed of creation, as well as the official response, all seem to suggest these formations are created by some kind of intelligent, or intelligently-guided, energy of some description which currently appears to be beyond our scope to comprehend or explain, except at least to suggest it appears to be totally benign. As the title of the book suggests, these are signs of contact. That the genuine signs are works of art of precision and perfection totally unsurpassed in human experience has become lost to the world of art due to government deception and their attempts to keep the phenomenon under wraps via the tame media. That they may contain the key to currently unimaginable technology is unfortunately lost on the public who are happy enough with their Play Stations and flat-screen TVs, happily lulled into brain-dead oblivion by Big Brother.
My own personal belief is that this phenomenon is an attempt by another intelligence far in advance of our own to educate the human race to look beyond our petty differences and to cast off the shackles of our current inadequate physical science and start to think in four-dimensions (and possibly more) and more specifically, in terms of tetrahedral physics as it applies to planetary mechanics. The decoding of these formations should be one of the human race's most important tasks, for within them may lie the key to free energy and easy inter-planetary propulsion. NASA Space Shuttle video footage caught an apparent missile fired from earth ("Star Wars" weapon system?) at an object flying sedately at approximately 60,000 mph (around 40,000 mph faster than the fastest human-made object) in low earth orbit which then performed a 14,500 Earth-gravity turn and accelerated in under 2 seconds to approximately 250,000 mph, making the missile appear to stand still. This is just a hint of the potential of a higher technology; who knows just how great its potential truly is? These things are all connected, either directly or indirectly, and as always The Controllers are trying their best to keep these amazing things from the public.
