Fascinating and entertaining,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Message of the Sphinx: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind (Paperback)
This is an absolutely delightful and fascinating synthesis of geological,astonomical and archaelogical evidence. It is a bold attempt to debunk the conventional and traditional view that the structures on the Giza plateau are only the funerary tombs of dead kings. By publishing the book in popular motif, Hancock and Bauval have succeeded in breaking through the arrogance and stuffiness of heavy structured academic form and argument and this makes the book entertaining and wonderful to read. I appaud the authors in not reaching too far into the speculative and sticking to the evidence through a multi-discilinary synthesis. I'm looking forward to Hancock's new book on his on-going quest for lost civilisations. The two authors make a wonderful team.
