KIRKUS REVIEW

The title's promise of revelation is borne out in some unexpectedly rewarding ways -- various theories about the disappearance of the Mayas, the Easter Island statues, the meaning of Stonehenge, etc. are weighed and sifted and some may stand up as solutions. A valuable lesson in deductive reasoning and systematic elimination which makes recent discoveries intelligible and interesting.
