Review: The Pyramids and the Pentagon by Nick Redfern

The Pyramids and the Pentagonis a detailed study of how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archeological, historical, and religious puzzles.

Focusing primarily upon the classified work of the U.S. Government, The Pyramids and the Pentagon invites you to take a wild ride into the fog-shrouded past. It's a ride that incorporates highlights such as:
  • The CIA's top-secret files on Noah's Ark
  • U.S. Army documents positing that the Egyptian Pyramids were constructed via levitation
  • Disturbing military encounters with Middle Eastern djinns
  • Claims of nuclear warfare in ancient India
  • Links between the Face on Mars and the pharaohs
  • And many more
Nick Redfern's The Pyramids and the Pentagon clearly and provocatively demonstrates that deep and dark conspiracies exist within the shadowy world of officialdom--conspiracies that have the ability to rock the foundations of civilization, religion, and history to their very core. The strange and amazing secrets of the past are just a heavily guarded government vault away.

Received for review.

I have to say that I really enjoy the author's work so I was really looking forward to this.  As with the author's other books this was well researched and clearly written.  I have to admit that I gave only cursory attention tot he religious artifact sections, but the remainder of the book was quite enjoyable.  The author's friendly writing style really added to the reading experience.

I especially enjoyed the chapters on the Egyptian and Mayan pyramids.  I did object to the author's (mistaken) assertions that the Egyptian pyramids were built by slaves (admittedly with advanced science).  Let me say it yet again here that modern Egyptian archaeologists have definitively proven that the pyramids were not built by slaves.

While I, of course, did not agree with all the author's assertions I found this to be exactly the educational and entertaining read I expected from the author.  If you're a conspiracy theory fan this book is for you.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
