That's the spirit! . . . Really nice to receive a post that expresses a deep appreciation of our work. Thank you very much for writing in and lending some thoughtful words of encouragement. I'm pleased to see that someone out there sees the book in this way.
Scott and I do see the book as perhaps a rallying point for the so-called 'alternative community', in that it deals with some very difficult questions in the field of Egyptology and I like to think on that score we have finally produced a book here that meets the orthodox mainstream thinkers head on.
In other words, there are many anomalies regarding the established view of Egyptology and the Giza pyramids presented in the book that have been highlighted and expressed clearly and things that need to be addressed.
One must always strike a balance, which is why we decided to write a more pragmatic, down-to-earth book to meet the orthodox thinkers on their own field to deal with these questions. But when you write a book like this, you really cannot avoid being stereotyped and placed on one side of the field in a conflict that's been going on for decades between the views that have been established by Egyptologists and the views, claims and beliefs presented by the so-called 'alternative' theorists.
