About the Author
Christopher Berg has been creating puzzles since the fifth grade, when he first began drawing labyrinths of various exotic and formless objects such as amoebas. While studying archaeology at Dartmouth College, he traveled to Greece and was inspired to draw a maze of the Parthenon. Thus began the second phase of his maze-drawing career, which has culminated in the artwork and essays in this book. Christopher has worked as an astronomer with one of the largest telescopes in the world, was a management consultant for many years, and was once foolish enough to ride his motorcycle all the way across the United States accompanied by little more than a jar of peanut butter. His only major published work prior to this book, the analysis of unusual stellar objects from an international quasar survey, can be found in the Astrophysical Journal. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his partner, Patricia, and her small, cute, and pleasantly deranged dog.

Lovely...! beautiful.....!.... Just enjoy it.....!
This book is full of beautiful and tricky mazes of ancient monuments. The stories that go with the mazes are filled with all kinds of little known secrets and fascinating tales. Like the story of the Colossus of Rhodes, an ancient bronze statue the size of the Statue of Liberty. Its ruins were eventually carried off on the backs of 900 camels to be melted down. It was intriguing and entertaining! PS Buy a large eraser when you get this book...
