I have not read the book, but I have read and transcribed the 19th chapter: The Antediluvian World: Baalbeth, -which contains the most important experience found in the book, namely the 'discovery' of the colossal Baalbek temple complex (with the largest blocks in the world...unexplainable) and the Baalbek 'quarry' containing three gigantic abandoned blocks that blew the mind of the traveler and author.
If you want a place to peruse, that would be the best place to start.
