Its a mind blowing experience. Im.a hugh fan of robert Bauval. I saw him on the show ancient aliens and It just open my eyes to what the Egyptian s were able to construct and what the great pyramids mean. It definitely is a head scratcher.

HASH(0xa19ae1f8) out of 5 stars Deciphering the "Code" Sept. 14 2008
By Critical Mass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent follow-up to the author's previous THE ORION MYSTERY. I believe that he does have something here that deserves attention. Egyptologists have never been in agreement over the reason for the placement of the pyramids, their relative sizes at Giza, their orientation, etc. Bauval has provided a "unified [pyramid] field theory" to account for all of the above without forcing the issue. Even the Zoser statue, the Sphinx, and other works of "funerary" sculpture are given new meaning vis-a-vis their positioning. A must for anyone interested in this area of Antiquity. Prof. Lewis M. Greenberg

HASH(0xa177800c) out of 5 stars A fascinating read that is as thoughtful as it is thought provoking Dec 13 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The mysteries of the tombs, pyramids, and beliefs of the Egyptians continues to spark iconoclastic theories. "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" is a provocatively informative book wherein author Robert Bauval presents his "grand unified theory" which shows how from earliest times beginner around 3000 BC to the closure of the Egyptian civilization with the death of Cleopatra and the dominant control of Rome in 30 BC, the pharaohs correlated what they saw in the sky to what they built on the ground. Fascinating perspectives and thoughts lending to this theory that not only did Egyptians mirror on the ground what they saw in the sky, but that the changes in the sky landscape, matches the changes on the ground, for example the size and placement of a pyramid. "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" presents an articulate and thought provoking set of ideas and explanations, which will bring about great discussions for some time to come. Recommended for public and Egyptology and Metaphysical Studies collections, "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" is a fascinating read that is as thoughtful as it is thought provoking.

HASH(0xa176b360) out of 5 stars Anything Bauval Writes on Ancient Egypt is a Must Read as a Living Authority of Explaining this Former Civilization. May 30 2014
By YC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First I am a fanatic of Ancient Egypt having the Great Fortune to visit the Ancient Temples, Pyramids, etc. four times with an Incredible Expert of this civilization. Bauval has emerged as one of the best living authorities unraveling the mysteries of this mysterious, sky-bound, civilization that had no developmental stages. I also recommend anything John Anthony West writes on Ancient Egypt.

Even if his topic is nothing like you have ever thought about, so was this Ancient Civilization like none other we have had on this planet.

Hopefully the current country called Egypt will settle down so tourism can be safe again. Meanwhile he and Dr. West are must reads.

HASH(0xa17bcfa8) out of 5 stars Worth reading explanation of Egyptian buildings Sept. 6 2009
By R. Murray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is worth reading I recommend it. This book provides a well-researched explanation of many of the Egyptian building customs. The author solidifies his case for the alignment of structures using the stars as a pattern. There is still that nagging feeling that not all of the many clues in ancient Egypt have been taken into account. The book builds its case upon star alignment and written text. The book does not take into account conflicting evidence that some of the Egyptian buildings may have been built earlier. Nor does the book attempt to explain how the massive projects could have been built by ancient peoples without a technology that modern builders would have difficulty employing but just accepts that they were built.
