"Sacred Symbols of the Dogon will challenge the reader to seriously consider that ancient civilizations possessed a scientific sophistication rivaling our present-day theories of matter and the fundamental forces of physics. Highly recommended for anyone who has questioned the mainstream view of ancient civilization as scientifically primitive." * John Dering, chief scientist for lasers and special projects at Scientific Applications & Research A *
"Scranton relates complex and difficult topics in a simple and straightforward manner that, while requiring attention to detail, leads to significant and rewarding realizations." * David Paulsen, New Age Retailer, Mar/Apr 2008 *
". . . an important tome in a larger body of work which points towards a 'lost chapter' in human history, pre-dating the last ice age." * Neil Hudson, Yorkshire Post, Apr 2008 *
"An exciting thesis to make us all think." * Nexus New Times Magazine *
" . . . here the Dogon symbols are revealed in a discussion of ancient Egyptian languages and scientific parallels sure to interest any New Age collection interested in scientific foundations of early Egyptian history." * The Midwest Book Review, Jan 2008 *
"From consideration of the scientific components of matter, the massless waves through to the nature and form of the atom the author weaves an eye-opening and challenging vista upon ancient and supposedly primitive, cultures whose true nature and form we have yet to fully comprehend." * Mysteries of Sirius, October 2013 *
