What People are Saying About This

Robert G. Bauval

"Chris Dunn ranks among the top researchers on this subject. His book is extremely well-researched and presented and, although very controversial in content and conclusions, will no doubt become a landmark and classic in the field of pyramid studies.

"Be prepared to be astounded with the precise information Chris Dunn lays out in The Giza Power Plant. Dunn rips open many 'established' beliefs about the Great Pyramid and dissects them thoroughly. The fun starts when he methodically constructs valid theories of his own that could change historical perception itself. Take it as you will, but this book will challenge your beliefs." - TopBookReviewers

It was very refreshing to read a new theory on the pyramids-one that was not dreamed up, whipped up, borrowed, plaguerized or just plain crazy. I was very impressed with Dunn's research and methodology. It has re-proved a case-in-point that for progress made for research, one has to get out of the surreal world of Acadamia and in touch with reality.

The Egyptian Pyramids The Giza Power Plant Technologies of Ancient Egypt By Christopher Dunn is a book that tries to convey readers on the theory that electricity subsequently to construction. This book was purely based on Dun's opinion about how the Great Pyramid of Giza was constructed without the use of slavery and if you do not agree with the “facts” in the book you will not enjoy reading the book. The book focuses primarily on the technology and reverses engineering of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Although explaining complex concepts with simplicity, and easy to read sentences, there are claims of “incorrect description” (Morris par 1) about topics within the book. Some research is also extremely outdated. This book is for those who enjoy the mathematics within the structures of The Pyramids of Giza. It is a book I could see architects who enjoy reading how tall and wide walls are, although Dun sometimes fails to describe tools that were used for those structures. Another reason why an architect would like this book is for the many illustrations Dun uses to explain his thoughts.
