In the year 2012, there will be a presidential election in Finland on January 15; the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games will begin in London at 7-30 p.m. UTC on July 27; there will be 7 billion people living on Earth on October 19, according to the U.S. Census Bureau; and, on December 21, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, referred to more familiarly as the Mayan calendar, will complete its thirteenth cycle and, based on all of these events- according to the Mayan belief system- the world will come to an end.

If you don't believe the Mayans, you can check in with The Bible Code, which predicts a meteor, asteroid, or comet will collide with the Earth; The Nostradamus Code, which opts for a possible nuclear war or some other natural or man-made destruction; or The Orion Prophecy, which claims there will be a reversal of the Earth's magnetic field. Pick your poison - no matter what happens, we're all toast. Or maybe not - maybe the year 2012 is just a new opportunity, the dawning of a new age, where we'll all get a shot at a second chance and can opt to get things right this time. Could 2012 bring us good things instead of bad?

The Complete Idiot's Guide to 2012gives readers a look at what the Mayan prophecy is all about, what it means to them, and much more-

  • The Cosmic Calendar revealed - and how the ancient Egyptians, the Bible, the Koran, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, and other sources all refer to an end time in 2012
  • Global warming and climate change, and how the Mayans predicted them
  • Your own personal journal, and the tools you'll need to survive into the 6th Age
  • After 2012 - the end of the world or a Golden Age to come?
  • Glossary of terms and symbols, resources for a changing world, and exercises to assist you in your journey.
