Shining in the Ancient Sea is written for the non-specialist, although it does assume that the reader is familiar with Homer's Odyssey. The book contends that the voyage of Odysseus took place in the night sky, not in the Mediterranean Sea as is commonly believed. Astronomical references buried in the Odyssey correspond to a system of astronomy found in the Vedic literature of India. Given this correspondence, it becomes evident that the poem must have had its beginnings long before the Greek speakers migrated into Greece, and probably originated as a means to preserve and transmit a body of knowledge about the constellations and the movements of the sun and moon and planets. Generations of bards added to the poem in many ways, yet the astronomical information never disappeared, and actually determined the structure of the voyage of Odysseus.
