worth your time

No struggling to get through this. If you like the series, great companion. Authors get more time to than the show. Essential if you watch the show.

Thought provoking

I am a very skeptical person. But this book brought up some very interesting points. I still remain skeptical, but the book was very entertaining.

Ruined by Narrator

I've been interested in all ancient magaliths for years, and after listening to Grahem Hancock's finger tips of the gods it is good to see another take on them. But this audio book is ruined by the narrators, speaking far too enthusiastically on every sentence. Also it isn't fluent from sentence to sentence, almost like they are reading bullet points

Brilliant theory that could possibly be near the truth of our past, and hope of the truth

Ridiculous but entertaining

If you liked the show, you will enjoy this. I didn’t particularly put much stock in any of the claims but it was entertain to listen to.

Nice addition to the series.

Loved the book, read by many of the people who head the show. Giorgio is very good.
I would say fans of the series will love this as it does give more information than in the shows,
If I had to grumble I would say its on the short side, 5 hours 10 minutes. And the grumble is
only there's so much more they could have said. Unless book 2 follows, which would be fine with me.

AND if you have not watch the TV show, watch it, BRILLIANT.

Entertaining and Informative

Great book for people looking for an entertaining introduction to Ancient Astronaut Theory.
I would highly recommend this title to people who are looking for a little information in regards to ancient aliens however anyone possessing a greater depth of knowledge on the subject might find it boring or too aimed toward popular culture.

I liked that the book was narrated by a variety of people and that the chapters they were often spoken by the Theorists themselves.

I would love to see this title made into a series of books.
