In a world of crumbling morality, violence and cynical politics, Sean Baker discovers a document created by a sophisticated 100,000-year-old civilization, that not only provides answers from the past, but also warnings for the future of an Earth racing headlong toward Armageddon. Events spiral out of control as Baker's bestselling book, Dreams from the Death Age, becomes the focus of a bizarre New Age Cult. Created by Senator Melvyn W. Ballsfield's jaded campaign manager, Lillian Schatsheimer, it is an outrageous effort to reverse her candidate's fading hopes for the 2012 Presidential election. This first book in the BAKER trilogy is satirical, full of restless characters caught up in a chaotic society as old ideas, philosophies and religions become irrelevant, and in the parody lies a serious warning for the future of Humankind."Planetary Precession dictated the path and the Age of Aquarius, the Second Death Age, was upon them."

An extremely funny yet thought provoking book that presents a glimpse of what 2012 may look like if we keep moving in the direction we seem to be headed. I loved the zany, larger-than-life characters and crazy situations they created but in that laughter was a nervous ring of recognition of how politicians, the media, spiritual gurus and people in a position of influence can step over the lines of common decency and plummet our world into chaos. The clever use of humor makes us think deeper and makes us ask - do we let ourselves be dragged down with it or do we choose to act differently and create a better world? The use of humor, wit and fantasy take us lightly through the most important considerations we face today regarding our children's futures. I read it in a day and couldn't put it down - a fun read and good 'meat' for thought as well - a perfect combination! And definitely great movie material!'
