The Lost Secrets of Maya Technology

By James A. O’Kon, PE

ISBN 978-1-60163-207-4 (New Page Books, 2012)

It seems entirely reasonable that it would take a structural engineer to uncover the Maya technology that built the greatest cities in the world at that time. Leaving aside how the Maya came by their technology in the first place, I found it quite intriguing to read about a culture that was a thousand years ahead of the most advanced European nations and that we have known about only since the mid-19th century. For those looking for a rational understanding of how this culture came about, this book is a valuable piece of the puzzle.
