    1. Silva takes a worthy topic and degrades it through pseudo-scholarship.I am sure there is a lot of good information in this book. If nothing else, the photographs of ancient chambers and passages oriented to solar and stellar tides strongly suggest similar intentions by peoples of different cultures in different locations. The problem is that the surviving lore is fragmentary and suggestive rather than explicit, but Silva's conclusions use words like "obviously" and "clearly" when "it would be ea [...]

    2. I bought this book after attending one of Silva's lectures and discussing some of the key points with him over lunch. I was impressed with his presence of mind and the amount of research he had at the ready in his mind, as well as his understanding of key concepts. The superior nature of his company and presentation made me interested in reading his work. The book is what I expected- well researched, put together in such a way that it's easy to read and digest, and full of photos of the location [...]

    3. A lot of information for me as I am a novice on the history of this topic. However, it has inspired me to read more as my interests have been piqued. It is a slow read for me, not because it is hard to follow, but because it leads me to read, or research other topics or reference other material. Silva has a way with words, that are gushing out at the seams in robust history, giving the origins and names we are not so familiar with.

    4. I didn't get a ton of new information out of this book but did find a few connections I wasn't previously aware of.This is a great introduction to the mysteries and a pretty good survey of their practice.

    5. Really amazing title, have been looking for this info regarding the Mysteries since the early 2000's. His theory is the Skeleton Key that makes sense of a lot of the strange facts and unexplained oddities surrounding Megaliths, Ancient Religions, Temples, and Texts. Wish it had a little more info on Praxis but still a phenomenal read and great jumping off point to go deeper!
