Urban legends and pop science do not make "A Scientific Investigation".
Although parts are interesting, maybe even entertaining, it is not a credible study.
Save your money.
Written and read like a high school journalism student. Selective use of data to back scenarios. Leaves out details that would contradict. It's already 2012 and a lot of the predictions made haven't happened.
Very insigtful. Enjoyed every momemt of the book. Gave scientific reasonings behind concerns of 2012. Also included the different ancient prophacies and how they are similar and how the are different.
There is an old joke about reasoning, logic and facts:
The bartender asks the guy if he knows what logic is?
The guy says - "no".
So, he asks him if he got matches in his pocket?
The guy says - "yes".
"Well," explains bartender - "If you have matches, then maybe you are a smoker, and if you are a smoker, then maybe some times you go to the bar, and if you go out regularly then maybe some day you'll meet a nice girl, and you'll marry her, and you'll have kids...Got it?"
Guy walks to his friend, and asks him if he got matches?
"No" - answers a friend.
"That means you'll never have kids!" - says the guy.
The point of this joke here, is that the author uses same "logic" in this book.
I'm not a "fact hunter", but books like this one MUST present the correct information.
