3.0 out of 5 stars Yes and no. A good start but left feeling hungry., 25 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Sacred Geography: Deciphering hidden codes in the landscape (Hardcover)
A good place to start would be at the end because there's a great essay written by someone other than the author.

Plenty of interesting ideas in Sacred Geography though, and you do sense an over-arching theme of humans and their planet getting into a loving relationship, which is surely what people will want from a book called 'Sacred Geography.' If you like archaeology, anthropology, or you're just generally fairly human, there are lots of things that will get you excited and it's always fun to read about a new topic like archaeoacoustics, and I really commend the author for bringing fringe ideas into a book but I just feel that the author never really goes farther than a short and sweet introduction. A lot of the statements made are quite generalised, simplified, and sometimes completely without qualification or evidence as well, which dampens the spirits somewhat. There are fairly suspect comments thrown in that leave you wondering if the book really serves much of a purpose beyond sharing the author's obvious affection for the romantic association of the concept of noble savages; of course, we have lost so much of our heritage and they certainly did know a lot about existing back in the past but sometimes I found wishing for a more neutral narrator.

Essentially, Sacred Geography is a solid pontoon from which to explore a fantastic subject of humans and their environments but don't expect to be taken on a long journey out to sea.
