Book description
From cattle mutilations and crop circles to Bigfoot, the Bermuda Triangle, and the Loch Ness Monster, this one-of-a-kind authoritative guide unlocks ancient mysteries, sifts facts from fiction, and occasionally reveals startling conclusions that challenge what we know—or what we think we know.

Some mysteries cannot be solved easily or satisfactorily, and others may lend themselves to more than one solution. Bewildering phenomena which have defied explanation—in some cases for thousands of years—demand an open mind an a flexible attitude for entertaining the pros as well as the cons of differing viewpoints. That's why each chapter in this book poses a pivotal and provocative question raised by a specific controversial mystery, and then presents two sides of the debate.

Each YES/NO section stands alone in its own right, but often directly gives an alternative explanation for specific claims in the opposing section. You will find yourself reading information that changes your worldview, only to confront arresting reasons to transpose it moments later. This dialectic approach means that apparently contradictory views can be resolved in an intriguing synthesis. After all, are you really certain that a floor can't also be a ceiling?

Explore lost civilizations, strange creatures, ancient technology, monsters and miracles, and metaphysical and scientific mysteries. As you choose to make up or change your mind, or reinforce or abandon entrenched beliefs, reckon with the words of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, who wrote, "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."
