Of the megalithic ruins of the world, one that still stupefies visitors to South America; researchers and laymen alike, is the complex of Tiwanaku, also called Tiahuanaco in Bolivia. The most mysterious part of this archaeological site for many is Puma Punku, a cluster of shattered hard stone building block components that lie undisturbed in the high altitude grasslands near Lake Titicaca. This book looks at solving the riddles of who made Tiwanaku and Puma Punku, when, and how.

I made the mistake of thinking this was going to be a historical look at the people and history of this enigmatic place. Instead it was a boring description of the measurements and layout of the site. I was definitely disappointed.
All photos are black and white, many obtained from internet sharing sites. I don't mind black and white photos, but in many many instances the photos have hardly any contrast and appear as if viewed through a fogged up window. I asked for a refund.
If you're just getting interested in the culture or the architecture of the period this is a good book for you. If you're looking for more than the basics and maybe a little more meaning and a little less text book, then there are better choices out there.
