The Secret of the Great Pyramid is a thrilling intellectual adventure story about the most exciting discovery in Egyptology in decades. Bob Brier, along with French architect Jean-Pierre Houdin, tells the remarkable true story of Houdin’s obsession with Egypt’s Great Pyramid, one of the Seven Wonders of the World: how, in an ancient agrarian society not long removed from the Stone Age, such a remarkable structure could have been envisioned and constructed. At once the story of Houdin’s determined search for answers to the puzzle that have eluded scientist and Egyptologists for centuries and a fascinating history of the planning and building of the magnificent edifice, The Secret of the Great Pyramid is an extraordinary work that puts the mystery to rest, once and for all.

    I believe this book contains great insight into the probable method of construction of the Great Pyramid. A video available on YouTube gives an even better understanding of the method described in this book. It is unfortunate that a DVD of the video presentation is not made available with the book. The book and video answer many enigmatic questions about the construction of the Great Pyramid. An article in Scientific American was complimentary about the investigation and analysis contained in this book and shown in the video.
