What you will get by downloading the free of charge 12-12-12 book
  • The fully indexed and interrelated list of all the major problems in the World and a blueprint describing how they can be resolved by December 12th 2012.
  • A unique yet entertaining in parts presentation method devised by the Author, which provides simple arguments and "directives" to resolve complicated World issues.
  • Discussion topics and probing questions to help the reader place himself (or herself) in the position of being the all powerful "Director of the Human Race and Manger Planet Earth" instead of the self proclaimed Andronicos "The Great" character. (View 3 examples here)
  • Many controversial statements to make the reader think, analyse and opine on important current affairs and global issues.
  • Enough material to create conversation topics for months to come.
  • A wealth of research material for adults, older teens and college students.
  • The opportunity for the reader to attempt to break the secret code found within the 12-12-12 book. The reader should be warned that the Author believes no one can ever break the code by using an array of the most powerful super computers in the World (that are commercially available as at July 2003). Can you break the secret code?
