This book is not only a guidebook. It will also reveal to you secrets of many sites, because I have worked at virtually every Pharaonic site as an archaeologist.
My career has been a lifelong tour, and I want to share it with you.
Whether I am wearing my hat or not, I am working hard to play my part in protection of antiquities in Egypt. And you will read about some of my adventures in this book which reveals the secrets from the sand. (Zahi Hawass)
