"Readers of Black Genesis will never think of ancient Egypt in the same way again. Bauval and Brophy make the case that this venerable civilization was originated by Black Africans from the Sahara Desert and that the pyramids, the statues, and the hieroglyphs were the result of their knowledge and ingenuity. The authors trace the series of errors and misjudgments that have obscured the origins of this remarkable civilization. It is time for the record to be set straight, and Black Genesis is the book that may well do it. This is an authoritative, excellent, well-written book." * Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University and coauthor of Personal Myt *
"In Black Genesis, Bauval and Brophy combined their investigative skills to answer an obvious but often-neglected question, "Who were the ancient Egyptians?" With new astroarchaeological evidence they build a strong case for "The African origin of the pharaohs" and have dramatically altered our understanding of the past." * Anthony T. Browder, author and independent Egyptologist *
"Extremely dense and possibly groundbreaking, Bauval and Brophy make an honest case for a "very different story of the origins of ancient Egypt." Their scholarship is meticulous . . ." * Publishers Weekly, June 2011 *
". . . packed with revelations!" * Midwest Book Review, July 2011 *
"The tales of the authors' 2008 expedition and of explorers in the past century add to the enticing read." * Nexus Magazine, August 2011 *
"Recommended." * R. Fritze, Athens State University, Choice Reviews Online, October 2011 *
"Both authors are highly accredited researchers who have provided an incredibly detailed book examining the connection between the astronomy of the pharaohs and their Neolithic counterparts." * Fate Magazine, October 2011 *
"Black Genesis is a captivating, thought-provoking, utterly intriguing read that traces back the origins of the high civilization of ancient Egypt into deepest prehistory. Buckle your seatbelts for a rollercoaster ride . . ." * Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods *
