There's a lot of good information in this book, but it also has some problems which become evident to listeners who aren't David Wilcock fans.
First, most authors should not record their audiobooks, they aren't professional narrators. David is good in radio interviews and his own presentations, but not here. He hurts his narration on every page with an I'm-excited-so-you-should-feel-excited inflection rise and a high-pitched top. A little emotion goes a long way, but Wilcock does this "excited emphasis" trick maybe a thousand times.
Second, who edited the book? Lots of little problems, such as Wilcock's misuse of "alleged" and "allegedly." They don't mean whatever he wants. The result? On his acknowledgements section at the end, he cites the Law Of One material, "allegedly transmitted telepathically by very advanced extraterrestrials. " They were alleged but not convicted, I hope. Try "reportedly" or "claimed" or "reputedly." Alleged still has to do with a crime, not a creation.
Third, it needed less David Wilcock "personality.". Over and over, Wilcock tells us he was "stunned" and "shocked" and "amazed" to discover something. It didn't amaze me to hear he was amazed. Wilcock wasn't doing a Graham Hancock or Linda Moulton Howe field investigation that yielded amazing results, he was telling us about something he read!
Next, the book isn't an investigation so much as a survey of literature. The material covered is impressive in volume and often fascinating, but Wilcock is telling us what he read in other writers' books and website articles.
For future books, Wilcock should be replaced by a professional narrator, and the books need a tight editing to keep the information on the page relevant to the overall themes of the book. Finally, I only got through the book by playing it at double-speed on the iPod. That made his 1001 excited emphatic moments sound less immature.
I look forward to Wilcock's future books. He's worth reading and chases the truth.
I never read the print version. But I tell you this. This is a must have when it comes to a Audible book.
When I found out that all that I have believed in was true.
He was a great reader of the book.
I would have but its a long book.
If you want to find out more about "us" then this is a great place to start. Its made me more knowledgeable about life and who we are.
Scientist, environmentalist and parent that is always interested in LEARNING more about people, history and the World we live in.
The author has done an incredible job of describing the importance of The Mayan Calendar, it's secrets, and how this information supports the myriad number of findings and discoveries that have pointed to the importance and interrelatedness of: Time-Space/Space-Time; the FACT that there are multiple dimensions and realities (not just what we think of in our day to day lives - he actually shows evidence that, in dreams, we TRAVEL to these other dimensions!); re-incarnation; extraterrestrials and their impact on human social and scientific development, and how this all plays into the end of this very year, 2012!
This was by far the most eye opening book that I have read. It answered so many questions that I had not thought about in years. I had dismissed so many things from my childhood as just my over active and creative imagination, now I am convinced that it all was real. I am going to focus on getting back the gifts and talents that allowed me to do things most people believe are not possibile.
Having David read this audio book brought alot of credibility to the details and research.
Avid listener of information that defines what a mess individuals have made of society, humanity and the planet itself.
Interesting to read some of the reviews. Like almost anything else, you get people who like it and those who don't. Have done my own research on numerous topics and Mr. Wilcock connects the dots on many items. Refreshing to hear an alternative view from doom and gloom. The author was not the best reader but he was not that bad. I have found if you increase the speed, you not only get through the book faster but it alters the audio enough to where you get used to it.
Keep an open mind and you can't help but enjoy all the information that is presented.
This book presented a lot of fascinating and hard-to-debunk scientific anomalies, the majority of these anomalies being discovered by professional scientists.
Dark Mission by Richard Hoagland, because it deals with convincing hard evidence that is very surprising.
This book would benefit from a professional narrator and editor.

Normally, I prefer listening to books rather than reading them, but, this book, so dense in scientific references and theories, needs to be read rather than heard. With a book, you can jump back to something you need to reread to understand, but this is very difficult to accomplish in an audio book.
Content is amazing, so it's not the book that deserves a three star rating; however, I suggest reading as the best way to get the most out of the book.
