    1. This is how I came about this book:I was talking to a repulsive astrophysicist, who had much to say about the all the people and things he could prove where idiots by use of science-immediately following I went to the local mystic shop to disassociate myself from his manner of isolating righteousness. I looked at crystals and candles and various adornments, I was tempted by a psychic reader who studied my actions so scrupulously that I felt I barely controlled them. Then, I reached down to this [...]

    2. This was one of the most facinating reads I've had. Part of the cover states that it reads like an Indiana Jones movie and I would have to agree. It begins with a search for the truth about where the crystal skulls came from. As the authors make their journey they end up venturing outside the realm of just the scientific and end up blending scientific with ancient wisdom. I love that combo! It's almost like watching a spiritual awakening. Having said that, I must also share that there is some gr [...]

    3. one of the best books I've read till now. it delivers such a beautiful message. we. our earth. let's connect. you don't need to believe in the crystal skulls, legends or 2012 just open your eyes and look at our nature. doesn't she need help? and look at us. doesn't we need help too? I'm so tired of seperation all this differences and war. let's just be more open, help and become one. to each other, others and mother earth. let's be a better humanity. doesn't that make sense to you all?

    4. I was curious to learn more about the crystal skulls that have actually turned up, but this book gives little science backing to the theories, and instead gives-up on exhaustive research in favour of conjecture, mysticism, aliens and conspiracy theories. The book could have benefited from a more objective stance and a more dedicated desire to get to the bottom of things. That being said, if the world ends in 2011 as the Mayans have predicted, I'll happily recant this review.

    5. The existence of the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull defies traditional explanations. Like many objects and buildings of the ancient past, its construction and existence cannot be adequately explained by the current worldview of mainstream academia. Quartz crystal experts (and other professionals) have concluded that the Mitchell-Hedges skull could not have been created with any available technology, past or present, unless people worked on it by hand, non-stop, 24-hours a day, for about 300 years [...]

    6. The book begins with out-right lies about the Lubaatun Crystal Skull. The skull was in fact not found/discovered by Anna Mitchell-Hedges in the pyramids of Lubaatun Beliz, it was in fact purchased in a Sothbey's auction in 1943 Mitchell-hedges against the British National Museum. So I believe in view of the misinformation presented that the author is not so credible a source and I am taking what I read with a grain of salt, which is why this has 3 and not 4 stars.So, all these people world wide [...]

    7. I'm incredibly glad I picked this book up in a second hand bookstore, as it turned out to be one of the most interesting things I've ever read. Even if you don't believe in the legend of the crystal skulls, or the mysticism surrounding them, there are a lot of interesting facts in this book. It holds a great store of information on the Mayan and Aztec cultures, as well as some of the other, lesser known, Mesoamerican cultures. From the perspective of that alone it would be an interesting read. B [...]

    8. I picked up this book after seeing a documentary about crystal skulls on Discovery Channel. These are the same crystal skulls referenced in that Indiana Jones movie (which I never saw) and I found it funny that the authors of this book wrote it before the movie ever got started and made an Indiana Jones reference! This book was very interesting and I learned a lot of stuff that I didn't know before. Like that the Mayans believe that the world will end in December 2010. And that crystals are real [...]

    9. A bit disappointing. Though non-fiction, the back of the book touted the story like experiencing an Indiana Jones Adventure. In away it started out like that, but rapidly the authors digressed into over-analysing everything from the electrical properties of crystal to the technologic involved in dating artifacts. Somewhere along the way they lost the plot and me the reader. I stuck it out, hoping for an amazing conclusion, but it got worse as whole sections of the book where not the authors writ [...]

    10. To be fair, I didn't read this book unbiased, which makes it hard to write a review. I expected wildly speculative theories about aliens, Atlantis, supernatural powers, and that's exactly what I got. I expected tantalising facts, interesting histories and fascinating cultures, which I also got.Now I hardly think that unexplicable facts need far-fetched theories. The science-philosopher in me applies Occam's Razor almost subconsciously, it seems. Therein lies my bias. However, the overall Indiana [...]

    11. ‘a mystery as profound as the Pyramids of Egypt, the Nazca Lines of Peru, or Stonehenge.’I must confess, when I was given The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls as an EQA project, apart from that comical mention on Peep Show and a vague memory of a famous Indiana Jones movie I saw growing up, I didn’t really know a great deal about the phenomenon. Yet before I knew it, I was embarking on an adventure of discovery with historical, scientific and spiritual significance that spans from the creatio [...]

    12. Can't say i'm convinced by the ideas presented in this book, nonetheless it is a fascinating read and gives an interesting insight into the percieved history of the crystal skulls. I learnt a lot about native American creation and religious beliefs from it. It also makes you think about what humans are doing to the planet we live in and how Westerners have treated natives in the past (and in the modern day), not just in America but all over the world.

    13. The Crystal Skulls are surrounded by mystery to this very day. Some believe the story about the finding of the first skull, some do not. Some believe in the power of the skulls, some do not. It is a controversial topic even among people who deal with spirituality in their everyday life. Whatever the truth is, this books makes an interesting read.

    14. Halfway through this book I was thinking that this was the most amazing story I have ever been told. Now on finishing it, it is simply one of the most amazing messages I have been given.This is a profoundly important book.

    15. this book was revelation to me in my teen years and continues to intrigue me. The authors are forced to come to grips with a most astonishing reality and in the end are given great teachings from Native American Elders. UFO's, Cosmic Consciousness, Ancient History, Tribal Lesson's, it's all here.

    16. Fantastic insight into the Cultural aspects and believes regarding ancient aliens, which brings the antiquity facts and culture together. Excellent read to begin seeking your historical answers to unanswered questions or for those deeply involved in tracing the facts.

    17. Diciamo che per adesso l'ho piantato li' perche' per i miei gusti e' un po' troppo new age e non dà le informazioni storiche che stavo cercando. Comunque l'argomento è interessante.

    18. Great topic for an adventure sci-fi book, and well writen. It also has some deepness and you can learn about the Mayans a lot.

    19. well researched and fact-filled I felt some information was repeated as if hammering it home, I got it the first time. Oh well still a interesting and informative read.

    20. I learned the whole story of the history of the Mayan calendar, the background on the creation of the crystal skulls and predictions for 2012. Very well written.
