3.0 von 5 Sternen A useful reference book for the layperson. 1. Oktober 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Complete Pyramids" is a gorgeous book, resplendent with photographs, diagrams and computer-generated images, and serves well as a near-comprehensive reference work on the pyramids of Egypt (that is, _all_ of them, not simply the Giza complex) for the layperson. The writing is less than inspiring but still serviceable, and the presentation will most definitely satisfy the "USA Today"-style at-a-glance needs of many people. For example, Lehner includes a rendered-to-scale figure of all of the pyramids of Egypt in cross-section, to give an idea of the chronology and scope of pyramid-building throughout Egyptian history. As a compendium of the conclusions and currently predominant ideas of modern Egyptology, this book probably has few peers.
Lehner often fails, however, to convey a real sense of the methodology involved in reaching these conclusions. Too often, we are told of the likely functions of specific features of the pyramids or their surrounding complexes without being told of the basis by which Egyptologists assign these functions. One notable exception to this is Lehner's treatment of recent attempts to elucidate the methods by which the pyramids were built. Perhaps this is due to Lehner's direct participation in such projects, but the relative care taken to explain the current state of knowledge regarding ancient Egyptian pyramid-building techniques stands in contrast to the lack of explication given to far too many other subjects. Thus, by comparison Paul Jordan's "Riddles of the Sphinx" is a superior work in this regard, if less focused on the pyramids.

5.0 von 5 Sternen very comprehensive 17. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read many books on the pyramids, many of the alien/atlantis ilk and these were always high on theory and very low on facts. This book however was exceptional because it present facts, diagrams, site plans, cross sections and measurements and entire histories and photographs, of just about every pyramid in Egypt, which comes to about 70. There are no fanciful theories, just plain facts and information and plenty of it. It also gives a very useful section on the history of the discovery and excavations of the pyramid sites and like many of the previous reviewers, I too regret not having known about this book before I went to Egypt, as it would have been invaluable, and I think I would have visited several other sites, as a result.
I give this 5 stars, because although some extra information could have been provided, the amount of data that has been included far surpasses anything else available, and I feel that this should be reflected in the rating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly Recommended 15. Dezember 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book delivers on what it promises. The text is intriguing and informative, and the photography is excellent. Not only does it cover the pyramids most familiar to the layman, but it also extends to the lesser-known (and less durable) Egyptian pyramids, as well as giving coverage of the efforts in Nubia to copy the Egyptian work with smaller pyramids. The level of detail was just right for a fascinated non-archeologist such as myself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Complete Pyramids By Mark Lehner 19. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read several books on pyramids and have found none that gives the reader the text with very accurate pictures and drawnings as "The Complete Pyramids". This book is a must for those who need a good, general reference. It will be the center piece of the archaeological section in my office.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best and most useful pyramid book I've read 5. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I wish I had read this book before going to Giza. The pyramids are to say the least an overwhelming experience. If I would have had this book with me I would have seen much more and understood much better what I was seeing. I'm taking it with me when I go back.
