    "Could it be...?" A few years ago, I was studying the Qumran Essene community's "Dead Sea Scrolls". I was troubled by their elaborate and detailed controversial chronicles of the ancient battles for Earth between the "Sons of Light" and the "Sons of Darkness". In reading The Universal Sign, I was wholly fascinated to find such myths to have been shared by almost all races of the ancient world. The author's rational, scholarly, and painstaking research is refreshingly noteworthy. Could humanity have been kept in the 'dark' for so long? It's time that more inquisitive professionals take up he task to illuminate the rest of us. Thank you for your extensive and non-mercantile efforts, Mr. Akhavan, whatever drove you to accomplish this monumental effort. A very enjoyable story as well! To all of you who wonder daily about what has happened, and is happening in our troublsome world...READ THIS BOOK!

    "A work that is deserving of praise." This book contains as much information as an academic resource. I read this book three times! I was fascinated by the way the author has managed to link so many diverse, ancient, and seemingly independent events together, to present a coherent tale of the world's "lost history". A monumental contribution to our world, which surely has taken many years of his 'life-force'.

    "The Universal Sign by Siamak Akhavan is wonderful. It is a six stars book" What an interesting book to read. I loved following my new friends...around their numerous adventures. Words are magical, and in these cases they allowed me to escape my uncomfortable chair and fly everywhere. Every page was transporting me somewhere else in the ancient world, and exposing me to things I never knew. What a gift… Thank you Sophie N. Blanchard

    "Couldn't put it down!!!" Intensely amazing wealth of well-researched information that I had no clue about before. But, I also enjoyed the beautifully uplifting and gripping tale. A work of both serious research, and great story telling.

    "Very Impressive." I am a professor and scholar in Comparative Mythology, and the developmental history of philosophy. I must admit that I was at first 'academically' skeptical about what I was going to encounter in this book. However, it was highly recommended to me by some respected friends. After reading it, I am pleasantly surprised at what I have found. Although, some of Mr. Akhavan's hypothetical links between historical events can be the subject of lengthy debates, here, I want to commend his efforts. He has very obviuosly carried out a tremendous amount of dedicated research and serious thinking and analysis. Indeed, he has made me seriously question some of my past beliefs. I consider his substantive work not just as a new academic resource, but also a very amusing story that everyone can enjoy. Well done sir! The fact that you have expended so much intellectual energy for no personal material benefit is also worthy of note. Daniel Dranoff

    "Awesome...Incredible!!" I have never read such a great piece of literary and informative work. Thank you Mr. Akhavan for dedicating so much intellectual and spiritual energy to study and share your valuable finds. The world needs more dedicated and compassionate intellectual souls like you. An admiring reader, Sordi

    "strongly recommended" Once I got into pacing myself slowly through the vast amount of detailed information, I found myself enjoying a magical tale that immersed me in an ancient realm of earth's antiquity that I had repeatedly and confusedly encountered as a avid researcher of Hindu mythology. Except, Mr. Akhavan has magically broadened my viewpoint to that of many other ancient worldly cultures. Even though I find the division (especially towards the end of the book) between the fictional and non-fictional somewhat unclear and controversial, I strongly recommend this book to all those interested in this topic.
