VITAL SIGNS 2002
The acclaimed crop circle book by ANDY THOMAS - now in a revised and updated edition
Back in 1998, Andy Thomas, editor of Swirled News, authored the book VITAL SIGNS: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE CROP CIRCLE MYSTERY AND WHY IT IS NOT A HOAX. It has been described by many as the 'Crop Circle Bible' - the definitive guide to the crop circle phenomenon.
Now, SB Publications are pleased to announce the arrival of a fully revised and updated 2002 edition of VITAL SIGNS, with 48 extra pages, comprising another four years of crop formations, many additional photographs and a new foreword by award-winning film director MIKE LEIGH (Secrets and Lies, Topsy Turvy, etc.).
What are crop circles? Where and when do they appear? What could be making them? What strange effects surround them? What do they mean? Why is it many formations simply cannot be hoaxes? VITAL SIGNS is the ultimate guide to crop circles for newcomers and an essential summary for those already entranced, including the most complete chronological account of the crop circle mystery available.

and Why it is NOT a Hoax
A book by Andy Thomas
VITAL SIGNS is the ultimate guide to crop circles for newcomers and an essential summary for those already entranced, including the most complete chronological account of the crop circle mystery available.
What are CROP CIRCLES? WHERE and WHEN do they appear? What could be making them? What strange effects surround them? What do they MEAN?
CROP CIRCLES, the complex and beautiful shapes which appear each year swirled into fields around the world, continue to fascinate the public and media alike.
There have been many attempts to explain them away as the work of human artists through ambitious but flawed man-made demonstrations and the propaganda of unproven claims. Yet the shocking truth is the source of the majority of the thousands of patterns which have occurred remains an enigma. The evidence strongly suggests a far more mysterious explanation of global significance.
Are the circles meaningless abstractions, messages of greeting or warnings of doom? Some believe extra-terrestrials are attempting to communicate, or unseen spiritual forces are making themselves known. Others see them as a natural function of our planet or as an outpouring of psychic powers. All agree that something astonishing is going on.
Here, at last, in one book, is a comprehensive and frank overview of the FACTS behind the phenomenon, its rich and fascinating history, the physical and statistical evidence, the paranormal experiences surrounding it and the extraordinary effect these portentous glyphs have had on the lives of observers and researchers.
A full and illuminating discussion of possible theories to explain the circles and the dilemmas and implications of each opens up a new and powerful view of a MYSTERY which has been subjected to suspicious victimisation and an unjust wave of debunking.
For many, such attention, together with continual reports of attendant aerial phenomena and other strange effects, ultimately reinforces the view that something hugely important is going on in the fields - a manifestation of vital signs for what may be a crucial moment in history.
Illustrated with over 260 stunning colour and black and white photographs, this is an essential acquisition for anyone interested in knowing more about this remarkable phenomenon.
