Best 2012 Book Out There Aug. 29 2006
By Jonathan Bethel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is the best source on 2012 information I have found to date. Geoff Stray, the author, has done painstaking research and analysis to bring us a complete compendium of the eclectic nature of this 2012 date. He not only covers the Mayan Calendar with its termination point in 2012, but he also brings us other cultural and religious prophecy related to 2012 and the scientific understanding of why this date could bring geological changes as well as physiological changes in our brain. These changes could herald a complete paradigm shift in our mode of operation within the world. For anyone interested in what the future may hold, this book is a must read!

Beyond all other 2012 books Sept. 28 2006
By Adrian Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As we rapidly approach the year 2012, initially brought to prominence by its now famous association with the "end of the Mayan calendar", there seems to have been a veritable avalanche of books published purporting to address the period leading up to this extremely important event.

However, due to its potential importance to all mankind, it is absolutely crucial for as many people as possible to be in full possession of all the true facts as we know them to be at this juncture, to understand their meaning and significance, and most importantly presented without any bias in line with current "new age" and similar trends.

Beyond 2012 by Geoff Stray is an absolute masterpiece of 2012 research, analysis and factual documentation, and one by which all others will be measured. Geoff has executed an absolutely brilliant, and to what most would be daunting task of thoroughly researching, analysing and presenting the facts and nothing but the facts in an extremely detailed, conscientious, impartial, professional, compelling and above all highly understandable way, without the slightest hint of personal bias or creative interpretation of the facts.

If you are looking for a book about the potential events associated with 2012, and these are events that everyone on Earth without exception should understand and be prepared for in the next few years, then Beyond 2012 is the only such book you should ever need in your library.

If you also require a book that deals with the Maya aspect of the 2012 scenarios, I would highly recommend Maya Cosmogenesis 2012: The True Meaning of the Maya Calendar End-Date by John Major Jenkins as the ideal companion book to Beyond 2012.

An informative find for any researcher of 2012 Aug. 30 2006
By David Healy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very informative in my quest for understanding the 2012 enigma. I've been studying this for quite some time and found this source to be an impeccable guide to understanding this prophetic date; this opus of 2012 covers a myriad of topics ranging from the calendar of the Maya to Christian correlations of 2012 to the scientific understanding of our Earth/Sun connection. I encourage any true eschatologist to pick up this book.

The Bible of "2012" Books June 5 2008
By Gary V. Tenuta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If there is a better book on the subject I have yet to find it. That is not to say there are not other good books on the subject. Certainly there are. Most of those other books, however, seem to be a mix of fact, speculations and the author's personal opinions. Nothing wrong with that. But what impressed me about Stray's book is that it is so remarkably comprehensive in scope and seems to present no bias one way or another. Stray has not written this book as a tool to promote any particular agenda. It is a thoroughly well researched piece of work that covers just about every thought, idea, and theory that exists on this subject of the end-date of the Mayan calendar and what it might mean. He presents an in-depth look at each theory and provides a thoughtful and often insightful analysis of each one.

The book is extensively illustrated with drawings, diagrams and photos, a complete bibliography and over 30 pages of chapter notes and references. This is not "just another book on 2012". This is a scholarly masterwork and, to paraphrase one of the other reviewers, this is the 2012 book by which all others should be measured. That is not to say, however, that it is a dry and stuffy read or that one needs to be a "scholar" with academic degrees in order to get something out of it. Quite the contrary. Stray seems to have written this book with the lay reader in mind.

Stray's book has become a constant source of reference for me and as far as I am concerned it is the Bible of "2012" books.

Outstanding Contribution to 2012 Discussion Aug. 29 2006
By G. D. Lowery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been waiting for a book like this for a long time. Stray has bestowed an enormous service on those who wish to come to grips with the many teachings and theories about the various scenarios surrounding 2012. The subject is imbued with debate and counter-debate and it can be confusing for not only those who are new to the 2012 subject but even those of us who have a deep interest in future events. The back cover of the book says it is "the most comprehensive guide available to the theories behind what many believe could be the most pivotal time in modern history.....". This, statement is not the usual publisher's hyperbole, in my view, but an accurate description of the contents of the book. Many thanks to Stray for the time and effort in writing it as it is sure to significantly increase our understanding of 2012 "end time" scenarios. This should be one of the first books we recommend to others on this subject.
