Shay Addams has studied the Mayan calendars and culture since the age of sixteen, when he also was introduced to Western astrology, Tarot and the I-Ching. In the Eighties and Nineties, Addams wrote more than 20 books -- such as the best-seller The Official Book of Ultima and Microsoft Flight Simulator: The Authorized Pilot's Guide -- and hundreds of magazine articles, and has been called one of the pioneer computer journalists as a result of his work for Compute!, Computer Games, and other magazines.
Since 2008, Addams has studied and researched the Mayan Sacred Calendar and astrology in the Guatemalan highlands. His latest book, The Mayan Calendar Users Guide, reveals information about Mayan astrology never before published in the English language -- making it the quintessential primer about Mayan astrology, but one containing esoteric knowledge equally valuable to those already familiar with the basics.
