    Erich von Däniken again shows his flair for revealing truths that his contemporaries have missed. After closely analyzing hundreds of ancient and apparently unrelated texts, he is now ready to proclaim that human history is nothing like the world religions claim---and he has the proof! In History Is Wrong, von Däniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decription since its discovery, and makes some intriguing revelations about the equally incredible book of Enoch.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Conspiracy buffs, uncritical "swallow it whole" simple minded folk


    What could Erich von Daniken have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not written it. The book is a compilation of myths built squarely upon speculation heaped on untruths, falsehoods, more guess-work and some old fashioned nonsense.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by John Allen Nelson?

    Yes

    This was no ordinary war. This was a war to make the world safe for democracy. And if democracy was made safe, then nothing else mattered - not the millions of dead bodies, nor the thousands of ruined lives. This is no ordinary novel. This is the story of a young American soldier terribly maimed in World War I - he "survives" armless, legless, and faceless, but with his mind intact.

    Would you listen to Johnny Got His Gun again? Why?

    Yes, I read it 25 years ago; now in audible format William Dufris' narration made this stunning book even more compelling, if that is possible.


    What other book might you compare Johnny Got His Gun to and why?

    This is arguably the most compelling anti-war book ever written.

    At only five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read or write or recall the name of his hometown or even his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the rough streets of Calcutta before ultimately being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia. Despite his gratitude, Brierley always wondered about his origins. One day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for and set off to find his family.
