What Will Really Happen In 2012?: Mysteries Of The 13 B'aktun Paradox Decoded... is a tongue-in-cheek novelty "book" which is skeptical of the idea that anything special is going to happen in the year 2012. Externally, the book looks just like every other 2012 conspiracy theory book – with a crappily-Photoshopped cover design, and a back jacket containing pseudoscientific jargon, specious research qualifications, ominous insinuations about global conspiracies, and wildly implausible doomsday scenarios. Unlike other 2012 titles, however, this book is likely to elicit consternation from the credulous, while providing a good chuckle for the scientifically-literate.

From the back cover:

At long last and just in time; a book with some real answers to the 2012 mystery.

Renowned occult scholar and apocryphal researcher Brian M. Clark of the Discriminate Media Research Institute has spent untold hours in cross-disciplinary study, combing through innumerable volumes of raw data and published journals from highly-regarded researchers in fields as far-ranging as: Astrology, Parapsychology, Revisionist History, Pataphysics, and of course, Quantum Mechanics. Arriving at a totally revolutionary and heretofore un-proposed thesis to explain the 2012 paradox, in this exciting new book he authoritatively addresses the most pertinent of issues facing humanity today:

  • Did the ancient Maya really predict that human civilization on planet Earth will come to an end on December 12, 2012?
  • Are astronomers anticipating a series of violent solar storms that could wreak havoc upon the technology-dependent industrialized world?
  • Is there a mysterious "brown dwarf" star called Nibiru lurking in the outer reaches of the solar system, on an impending collision course with Earth?
  • Are the Earth's magnetic poles reversing, and will our planet lose its protective magnetosphere in the process, exposing us to harmful cosmic rays?
  • What dark secrets are the CIA, FBI, DEA and Homeland Security keeping from the public regarding the 2012 mystery?
  • Have extra-terrestrials been trying in vain to warn humanity of a looming apocalypse since the mid-1950s?
  • How are the Freemasons, The Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Grove attendees and The Illuminati actively keeping society benumbed and docile, and what can you do about it?
