Are we coming to the end of a cosmic cycle? Will there be an age of awakening, or even an end to the world we know? For the first time, the leading authorities on the 2012 phenomenon are all given voice in a single book: The Mystery of 2012. From the prophecies of the Mayan astronomers to modern predictions about social, ecological, and spiritual changes to our world, this comprehensive anthology offers you a chance to examine the mystery from every angle--and to decide for yourself whether 2012 will end with a whimper or a bang. Whether you're a skeptic, a true believer, or simply "2012-curious," here is a thought-provoking exploration of this approaching landmark in human history.

Review: The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies & Possibilities

User Review  - David Melbie - Goodreads

Some of these essays and articles, etc., are pretty far out there. Some are more practical than those. Overall this book is full of a lot of quasi-educational guesswork and I don't really subscribe to any of it. Just had to read it, to convince myself, I guess. Read full review

User Review  - Michelle DePaepe - Goodreads

I found this book fascinating and thought provoking! The relevance of this book goes well beyond the year 2012. It's going to stay on my bookshelf as I know that I will want to revisit some of the essays again. Read full review
