To save time and money, you should learn more about your printer settings. Most printers can print two or four pages on one sheet of paper. For a comfortable reading experience, find in the settings of your printer how to print two pages in one. This tip divides the number of paper by two.</p><p>You can also print on both sides of the paper. If your printer does not manage it automatically, most printers have a function called "Print as a book" or something similar. For example, the printer will print a first set of 30 sheets of paper and then ask you to re-insert them on the other side, so both sides are printed. With that second tip, we divide the number of paper by two.</p><p>If you follow the two tips, printing two pages in one and on both sides, you will need only 107 sheets of paper.</p><p>Please, test first these tips with one or two chapters to avoid problems.</p></li><li><p>2 2001 by Professor Joseph Davidovits and doctor candi-date Frdric Davidovits</p><p>ISBN 2-902933-07-X(First Edition:ISBN 0-87052-559-X Hippocrene, New York, 1988ISBN 0-88029-555-4 Dorset Press, New York, 1990)</p><p>All Rights Reserved.

Hippocrene and DorsetMarboro Books, first published the book ThePyramids: An Enigma Solved. They sold more than45,000 copies from 1988 to 1995, and it is out of print since1995. The American Library Association selected this bookas a Starred Review Title in its 1988 booklist.</p><p>From 1991 to 1998, I concentrated on industrial appli-cations mainly in Europe and in USA. Taking advantage ofthe newly acquired scientific and technological knowledges,I decided to resume the archaeological research in early 1999.My son Frederic, the linguist, who had been working since1992 on the translation of technical ancient texts written inLatin and Greek, was of great help in the critical study of myprevious work. After his Master Thesis on Ancient RomanCement, he is becoming one of the world best experts onancient technical texts dealing with mineralogy, geology andconstruction technology.</p><p>The book has been revised and edited with several newchapters, new facts, and new astounding discoveries. Therevised edition adds up to 54% of new material.</p></li><li><p>8The co-author of the first edition, Margie Morris, whoedited and polished the work in plain American English,continued her research in Egyptology and wrote down herthesis in a manuscript t...</p></li></ul>
