From a distance, what we have learned about the pyramids may appear factual; but once we examine this information closer, it proves to be otherwise. This book is intended to undo many false perceptions about the Ancient Egyptians’ pyramids.

This book provides a fresh look at the interiors and exteriors of Egypt’s masonry pyramids, theories of construction, their purpose and function, and the sacred geometry of their design.

This book is a revised and enhanced third edition of the second edition (entitled Pyramid Handbook) which was an update of the first edition, Pyramid Illusions: A Journey to the Truth, by Moustafa Gadalla.

This new third edition expands and adds to previous texts of the prior edition. We also added a large number of photographs that compliment the text materials throughout the book.

This expanded edition of the book consists of seven fully illustrated parts, with a total of 18 chapters.

Part I: Overview consists of two chapters—1 and 2, as follows:

Chapter 1: The Background provides a short opening statement about the common “theories” and the counterpoints, based on actual facts.

Chapter 2: The Genuine Masonry Pyramids provides a list of the Egyptian pyramids that were built during the Fourth dynasty about 4,500 years ago.

Part II: Pyramids versus Tombs consists of two chapters—3 and 4—as follows:

Chapter 3: Stepped “Pyramid” of Zoser covers details of its super-structure and its underground chambers.

Chapter 4: The Fictional Tombs covers the details of a typical Ancient Egyptian tomb and how totally different it is from the interiors of the Egyptian masonry pyramids of the Fourth Dynasty.

Part III: Pyramids—Functions & Forms consists of two chapters—5 and 6—as follows:

Chapter 5: The Pyramid Complex shows how the Egyptian pyramid was a component of a complex that was connected to other temples; and the differences in functions and forms between a pyramid and a temple; as well as the energetic proportioning of such structures.

Chapter 6: Pyramid Power covers the form variations of the Egyptian masonry pyramids; and how such forms attract, maintain and channel cosmic energies.

Part IV: Pyramid Construction Techniques consists of two chapters—7 and 8—as follows:

Chapter 7: The Flawed “Common Theory”covers the details of the Common ‘Theory”; the unidentified “source” of quarried blocks; the impossibilities of cutting and shaping the pyramid blocks; the impossible logistics of the fabricated ramps theory; the conveniently-ignored three immense Pyramids of Snefru; and a summation refuting the western-made “Common Theory”.

Chapter 8: The Material Facts covers Herodotus’ accounts of pyramid construction; Egyptian molding techniques; the differences between synthetic and natural blocks; the various types of synthetic concrete blocks; the unique qualities of the pyramids’ casing stones; and additional evidential facts of synthetic pyramid blocks; as well as bringing to light the even more outstanding details of the earlier incredible masonry works of Saqqara.

Part V: The Three Snefru Pyramids consists of three chapters—9 through 11—as follows:

Chapter 9: Snefru’s Meidum Pyramid covers its detailed exteriors and interiors.

Chapter 10: Snefru’s Bent Pyramid covers its detailed exteriors and interiors.

Chapter 11: Snefru’s Red Pyramid covers its detailed exteriors and interiors.

Part VI: The Three Pyramids of Giza consists of four chapters—12 through 15—as follows:

Chapter 12: The Giza Plateau provides an overall diagram of the main points of interest in the Giza Plateau.

Chapter 14: Khafra’s Pyramid covers its detailed exteriors and interiors.

Chapter 15: Menkaura’s Pyramid covers its detailed exteriors and interiors.

Part VII: After The Pyramids consists three chapters—16 through 18—as follows:

Chapter 16: Mission Accomplished concludes the Egyptians’ objectives of building the pyramids.

Chapter 17: “Pyramid” Texts covers the origin of such incorrectly Western characterization of such texts.

Chapter 18: The Greatest Pharaohs That Followed provides accounts of subsequent, more powerful, and great builders who never built a pyramid because the real objectives of building pyramids were achieved during the era of the Fourth dynasty.

Join us on our journey to find the truth—the WHOLE truth—about the pyramids.
