SOLVING STONEHENGE: The New Key to an Ancient Enigma by Anthony Johnson.

Not at all wacky and a good read despite the use of "solving , key and "enigma " in the title , which are usually good BS signifiers .

Yes, must get a copy. Ronald Hutton has some nice things to say about it as well -

“Echoing much earlier approaches Johnson focuses his attention on the placement of the stones themselves, but offers quite new conclusions. Using documentation and results from the last 250 years of surveying at Stonehenge he shows that the stones were laid out to a premeditated design, and that the symmetry and geometry involved were extremely complex, so much so that it must have been geometrical considerations which played the leading role in the design of the structure. A fascinating and well argued work, which is bound to re-ignite old debates and start new ones."
