MEDIA REVIEWS
"The clearly written book boasts an extensive glossary, a long chronology listing major events from Maya origins to current research, and good maps and illustrations. It is excellent as a text and professional reference and for general readership. Summing up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries." - Choice
"[A] one-stop reference book that clearly stands on its own." - Whispering Wind
"While the style of writing is still academic, the author took a quantum leap forward to boil down much of the information that we have on the Mayan civilization to place this book as a one-stop reference book that clearly stands on its own." - Reviewer's Consortium
