Publisher's Summary

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began---von Däniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Däniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendents of these galactic pioneers---and the archaeological discoveries that prove it:

  • An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
  • Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
  • Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
  • A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
  • A giant spaceport preserved in the Andes

    "A Classic"

    Narration was very good. The story gives you thought into the unexplained and if we are really not the only ones in the universe. Also if we were visited in the past by ancient aliens.

    "Crazy good stuff"

    Lots of interesting conjecture left to the imagination to link together. But a great story to listen to

    "I don't agree with him, but it's amusing."

    It seems wacky, and far fetched. He has never updated it, but has a forward to address some things. It's fun to hear what they thought 40 years about we would be able to do with technology in what is now current day.

    Story
    "Answering how life began"

    This book is one of the first to speculate on the idea that Aliens were present in Earth's ancient history. Basing this on mythology and art that crosses many cultures, including ancient Egypt. While some of the obviously unproven speculations seem a little far fetched, many of his beliefs do have some grounds. Because it was written at the dawn of the space age, this book seems a little out of date in places, but I still found it an interesting listen.
