In dem vorliegenden ersten Buch aus einer geplanten Reihe von 10 Publikationen wird dargelegt, dass Rongorongo keine Schrift ist, die Texte konserviert. Der Autor Michael Dietrich fand zahlreiche Informationen über die "graphics" in der wissenschaftlichen ozeanistischen Literatur und damit auch stichhaltige Beweise für die Bedeutung der Zeichen und des platforms. So lässt sich beweisen, dass die Zeichen astronomische Bedeutungen haben, deren Sinn und Zweck die im Pazifik übliche Navigation nach den Sternen der Nachwelt überliefern.
Nach mehreren wissenschaftlichen Veröffentlichungen des Autors wendet sich dieses Buch an alle interessierten Leser, die nicht über die bisher geleistete Rongorongo-Forschung informiert sind. Das Buch ist als populärwissenschaftliche Arbeit zu verstehen, ohne den wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund auszublenden.
