This question has assumed a more-than-theoretical importance in the life of Michael Glickman, who has been witnessing the miraculous on a regular basis since he investigated his first crop circle in 1990. In the years since then, an intensive study of the crop-circle phenomenon in the region of its most important appearances—the English countryside—has given Glickman extraordinary personal insight into a subject usually known only through secondhand reports and speculation.More than eight years in the writing, Crop Circles: The Bones of God is unique among books on this modern enigma in that it combines the author’s firsthand field encounters with some of the most famous crop-circle formations (such as Alton Barnes 1990 and Silbury Hill 1997, as well as more recent circles) with intricate and dazzling analyses of the structure and content of those formations. This beautifully illustrated mix of personal narrative with detailed study informs a larger discussion of the role of crop circles in the modern world and their unprecedented promise of new chapters in the history of consciousness....

Crop Circles: The Bones of God Reviews
Glickman's newest book on the 'crop circle' phenomenon is a great starting point for anyone who still thinks that these increasingly complex patterns are made by groups of people...out in the fields...in the middle of the night...without being detected...year after year...anonymously, with no interest in fame or even recognition for their sublime creations (and no revenue, none are copyrighted either).In fact, Glickman makes an excellent point early on: what may be just as interesting as the phenomenon itself - is the ability of so many people to pretend it isn't happening...or that it's been 'solved'.This book is far from exhaustive, many areas of research aren't even mentioned. This is not because the author (a former architect and designer) is uninformed, he has been visiting, photographing and studying crop circles for 20 years. Lucid, concise and copiously illustrated with photos and diagrams, this slim volume will crack a complacent head wide open!
ok, this is one of those books/topics out of my list of usual suspects but hey, this is really cool.The writing is really poor but the photos are awesome. I realise that crop circles are not just circles but amazingly, superbly beautiful geometric designs.One of the interesting little known curiosities I learned from this book is that it is almost impossible to make an internal angle so sharp (esp not from crops) but that whoever did it - did it! By interspersing the fallen stalks with standing ones.Amazing.I am almost convinced that aliens taught the ancient civilisations all its technology eg how to build the pyramids, the design of the buildings at Luxor, calendar and maths. I am almost convinced too that we are descendents of aliens! It is highlly plausible.
An architect looks at the sacred geometry of crop circles, and while he doesn't claim to know where they come from or who makes them, he asserts that there is an intelligence behind them that surpasses that of people sneaking into barley fields in the middle of the night to flatten a crop in order to get a rise.
Very beautiful, interesting, and nice and concise too. One of the strengths of this book, is it's brevity, not that the subject does not warrant more consideration, but as much as I am curious about this phenomena I was not sure how long of a road I am willing to go down one person's perspective on it. (that sentence is awful but I'm leaving it.) Fortunately this carefully written book is gentle, subtle and at times vague as it ventures into ideas that make many people (most?) very uncomfortable. I feel he did a fine job, but what was the strength of this book was to me also a possible flaw. Many times I felt during the reading of this book "what do you mean by that?" or "could you please explain how you arrived at this conclusion?" and of course such a slim book can only tell us so much. The pics inside are beautiful, and design-wise the book has a nice feel to it.
This is a lovely survey of some amazing crop circles. The author brings his expertise as an architect to bear as he analyzes these phenomenal and mysterious events. At least one of these circles was done in daylight, within viewing distance of a major highway and Stonehenge, which of course receives a huge number of visitors. One very interesting aspect of the laid wheat is that where the direction of the wheat sweep meets a wall of upright stalks, the laid stalks are woven between the standing stalks. Fascinating!
Good for those interested and knowledgeable in Geometry. Difficult to comprehend. Looking at the number of crop circles created in the world so far, the analysis of few presented in the book is good start.
I like how the theme of the years were displayed so clearly. Nice layout and very simple!
