Background & Overview
"The Complete Idiot's Guide To 2012" is written by Connecticut's own COLIN and SYNTHIA ANDREWS. This book is an excellent, well balanced introduction to the Mayans, their calendar and their prophecies; a great place to start a study on 2012. Colin Andrews is one of the foremost crop circle researchers and has written a number of books and produced DVD's on that phenomenon.

"The Mysteries Of 2012" is both a book and a series of audio interviews. The book includes a series of essays on the mystery of 2012 from a wide variety of perspectives. The goal is to help an "investigative reader" explore the topic efficiently thoroughly and from a number of different vantage points. It's a good introduction to the major writers and investigators and will help you choose where to delve deeper.
The publisher of the book, TAMI SIMON working for Sounds True, did a series of eight audio interviews with contributors to the book including Barbara Marx Hubbard, John Major Jenkins, Jean Houston, Ervin Laszlo and Peter Russell. Tami is not so much a believer as a probing journalist trying to make sense of the conflicting ideas. You can download the interviews in a series of podcasts at iTunes under the title of "The Mysteries of 2012".
The website includes additional information, articles and resources, but doesn't seem to have all the podcasts available and I find it difficult to use.

Melchizidek is a fascinating author and researcher who is working closely with the Mayan elders. He is the author of a number of metaphysical books. His most recent is Serpent of Light which includes an esoteric explanation what is happening. Perhaps of more interest he has been selected by the Mayan elders to help them write and publish their own story of the meaning of 2012.
He also recommends Colin Andrews 2012 book.
