Publisher's Summary

Geology and archaeo-astronomy have already indicated that the Great Sphinx of Egypt may be far older than Egyptologists tell us - dating not from 2,500 B.C. but from 10,500 B.C. Sophisticated computer techniques are beginning to unravel the riddles posed by Egypt's great monuments of stone. Now this tour de force of historic and scientific detective work provides a startling new vision of mankind's true history.

Great scholarly work

Unlike Graham's previous book where there was no opening stated purpose of the book. This book probably because of the second author starts out with a stated purpose. Why are people fighting any in depth studies of the Sphinx? The same is true of all these great works called the seven wonders of the world which is off anyways. I believe there is over a 100 wonders that should be listed. We haven’t even begun to look at what was talked about in the Fingerprints of the Gods and the Source Field Investigations.

The big question is that all books ask that look into the past is: ‘Why are people scared to relook at everything with fresh eyes?’ No one can tell us how any of these great works were done and why we're not talking about the the ones in India, Russia, the US, Africa and throughout Asia. Those in true power must be really scared of the truth which they know will eventually happen no matter what they do.

Well done and informative

an informative piece, with quality grammar and an excellent delivery method with sound factual researched information that other books fail to bring to the table. Realistic in its approach for an alternative point of view that is tantalizing and immense in its implications, this one is a must read/listen.

a bit contrived

The author has a certain idea in mind of what the Sphinx and the Pyramid mean and he brings forth a series of arguments for his idea.
While I think that the idea is worthwhile considering, many of his arguments are quite doubtful and debatable. Also the writing tends to be lengthish and boring at times.
If you are an Egypt freak you might get something out of that audio book, otherwise leave it alone.
