For the first time, the leading authorities on the 2012 phenomenon are all given voice in a single book: The Mystery of 2012. From the prophecies of the Mayan astronomers to modern predictions about social, ecological, and spiritual changes to our world, this comprehensive anthology offers you a chance to examine the mystery from every angle--and to decide for yourself whether 2012 will end with a whimper or a bang.
