Meh... book contains a LOT of numbers, measurements and stats. Barely any narrative. Hard to read and harder to get into. Author's theories about Stonehenge are a bit far-fetched IMO. A great portion of the book is not even about Stonehenge. I feel like only the beginning & ending pertain to the title of the book. The rest is written on other ancient sites around the world. I did enjoy the photos and diagrams however. Just wish they were in color.
