    "Something here really stinks to high heaven," writes Erich von Däniken. "In Twilight of the Gods," says von Däniken, "I document precisely what it was that left the first visitors breathless as they stood before the mighty stone blocks some 400 years ago. I will show you what archeologists discovered hundreds of years ago and demonstrate how much has been destroyed over the centuries. Intentionally.

    Would you listen to Twilight of the Gods again? Why?

    Yes, in fact I think it's the kind of book you NEED to listen to more than once.


    What other book might you compare Twilight of the Gods to and why?

    Fingerprints of The Gods by Graham Hancock. Both men are fearless, educated and articulate and this comes through in their writing. It can't be easy to write about this subject matter and retain respect within academic circles - unfortunately because of the narrowminded manipulative views of people in power and subservient dogma of the mainstream religions, these studies are often viewed with contempt, ridicule and fear by those in positions of educational, religious and political power.


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    His pronunciations were good and his neutral tone allows one to form clearer mental images of the subject matter.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme.

This first-of-its-kind audiobook demystifies the craft of comedy by breaking it down to the fundamental skills used by professional funny people. Dean lays out these skills in simple-to-understand lessons that are easy to practice and master.

  • The Gods Were Astronauts: Evidence of the True Identities of the Old 'Gods'

    Erich von Daniken has exhaustively researched and analyzed the great world religions, their myths and belief structures, in an effort to find an answer to a question that has fascinated humans for millennia: who, or what, were the Gods described in ancient stories? His extraordinary conclusion? The Gods were not metaphysical beings born of humanity's overactive imagination, but extraterrestrials who left traces of their presence everywhere on Earth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gods Were Astronauts to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but the audio version was excellent.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The most compelling aspect of this book is the basic questioning of the history we have all been taught. Upon closer scrutiny we realise that our version of history is nothing more than a collection of nonsense from arrogant egotistical megalomaniacs.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Foley – was your favorite?

    There were no characters as this is a non-fictional work. The narrator simply read Erich's words.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No particular moment as the entire book was one astounding revelation after another.


    Any additional comments?

    It is such a pity that the world has been stuck an induced coma of religious dogma and myopia, for the better part of two thousand years. We have limited our own progress as a species - we

    The individuals in this book all share a common bond - they were awakened. They awoke to a world that was unfamiliar to them and one that was often terrifying and bizarre. Suddenly, those trusted men and women in power became manipulators and power hungry dictators and not the democratic leaders we are led to believe. A unique collection of evidence and theory is set out in this film to reveal a new world order.

    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Theo Chalmers and Franny Ma ?

    yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It wasn't concrete enough. But then I suppose it wouldn't be called conspiracy if there was a definitive concrete conclusion backed by evidence.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was fine but needed a common voice as the glue to knit the interviews and commentary together.


    Do you think The Conspiracy to Rule the World needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. This should be a monthly ongoing broadcast with updates on previous stories.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a bit of a catch 22 situation. Authors want people to take their work seriously but then they title their works with something inflammatory because they think it will sell better. The result is that readers don't give the work credibility as they would a news story. The irony is revolting. So called conspiracies are often TRUE...but because they carry the label
