  • marsmoon - "What would you do if you had five more years to live?"This is the question that comes to mind when considering the thesis of Patrick Geryl's book, How to Survive 2012? Based on his research and the deciphering of mathematical codes left by ancient scholars, a cataclysmic event will soon overwhelm the planet. This is the third in a series of his books about the devastating destruction that the author has discovered is coming in 2012---a planetary geophysical pole reversal.

    The first part of the book discusses his voluminous research from several different disciplines including mathematics, ancient texts, archaeology, geology, cartography, mythology, astronomy, and physics that led him to conclude that a pole reversal will happen in 2012. Such a shift of the earth's crust would result in the destruction of civilization and the deaths of most of the world's population. The author can get quite graphic in his description of what would happen during and following a pole reversal. However, I find that there is a wisdom and compassion in his style of writing. It is to prepare the mind like an inoculation so that when actual conditions present themselves, one can act.

    Patrick's writer's voice is clear, logical, enthusiastic, and strident. He believes that the devastation of 2012 is going to happen. It has happened thousands of times in the history of the earth, he contends, in clock-like fashion. The compelling aspect about Patrick to me is that he presents himself as a sincere person, a diligent, self-made scholar who has put together the pieces of the puzzle into a huge mosaic until the picture becomes clear and the arrows point to one central message. If you ever wondered why the Egyptians and Mayans labored for generations to build pyramids, wouldn't warning future generations of a planetary cataclysmic event be such a reason? It so happens that our technology just now in this generation has reached a point to be able to decipher the symbols and messages contained there.

    If pole reversal is coming in 2012 how can it be that our top scientists are not warning us about it, and how is it that they don't know about it? Patrick claims that he has cracked the code mathematically and it is evident in the book that he has been thinking about this voluminous topic deeply for many years. Many breakthrough discoveries have come from independent persons who thought about things from different angles in totally new ways. What distinguishes his book in an area of rapidly mounting interest is the quality of his analyses and the manner in which he came upon his discovery. He claims that he has deciphered the messages of warning left for us by our ancestors in the pyramids, in the Mayan calendar, Dendera Zodiac, the Nazca lines, and the ancient myths and legends. The great controversy lies not in if he is wrong, but if he is right. If he is right, then he could be warning us of the inevitability of the most tumultuous event in the history of humanity. While the implications of what he is presenting would call upon us to totally change our way of life, this warning might allow for humanity to prepare and for some of us to survive to carry forth our wisdom and knowledge for future generations. If the poles shifted do you know how your area would be affected? Find out how to prepare and where the safe zones will be.
  • ITrob523 - Simply Amazing!** typing this review from my Transformer Prime.**
    I work in IT and I have used just about every device on the market. I can easily say that this is the tablet to beat. Its fast! easy to use for those who aren't as tech savvy but also provides the most functionality for those of you who are. You may surprise yourself with how easy it is to learn and adapt. All of the reviews on here speaking of people complaining about the wifi... its the same wifi you would find on a mobile phone. You can't expect to get the same range as a high powered laptop. That being said,other than some minor Android OS hickups which are expected and the reason Google creates updates, it works great! I especially like the ability to setup a home share network with my windows 7 PC's to stream music both to and from my tablet. Kudos to Google, Asus, and Nvidia. I brought this thing to work and other coworkers couldn't get enough and actually purchased it as well. ASUS especially rocks for the myNet app and this tab!
  • E. Elliot - A record of Artie's darkest daysIf you're looking for lighthearted comedic tales this isn't the book for you. It's much darker than his previous book, which isn't surprising if you know the dark turns Artie's life has taken over the past few years. I still found it to be thoroughly entertaining and I hope his next book includes hilarious tales of married life with his love Adrienne. Artie is one of my favorite story tellers and his style and wit are both fully intact. I miss listening to him on the Stern show, which in my opinion will never be as good without him, but I'm glad this book finally came out. I hope he's around to write many more.
