Publisher's Summary

Popular Lost Cities author David Hatcher Childress takes us into the amazing world of ancient technology, from computers in antiquity to the flying machines of the gods. Childress looks at the technology that was allegedly used in Atlantis and the theory that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was originally a gigantic power station.

He examines tales of ancient flight and the technology that it involved; how the ancients used electricity; megalithic building techniques; the use of crystal lenses and the fire from the gods; evidence of various high tech weapons in the past, including atomic weapons; ancient metallurgy and heavy machinery; the role of modern inventors such as Nikola Tesla in bringing ancient technology back into modern use; impossible artifacts; and more.

Very insightful

This book is an eye opener into the past... I would recommend this read to those that are very curious about our ancient world history. You need to be extremely open minded in other to appreciate this book. A lot of unanswered questions concerning the origins of all the wonders and megaliths of the world can be answered or partially answered here.

Not what I was expecting

The grammar is off, and it’s just sloppy. It could be so much more polished. I had high hopes after resonating with the author from watching Ancient Aliens and was severely let down. Only book I’ve returned.

Incredible even-handed view of difficult subjects

Excellent book, well researched and presented in a thoughtful even-handed way. Often times, the subject of ancient advanced cultures turns into a wide-eyed rant that ends up going off the rails in a series of conspiracy theories and hyperbolic attempts to explain the unexplainable. Not this work. It is well done and there is nothing wild or hyperbolic about it.

Interesting listen

It was an interesting and entertaining listen. For me, maybe a bit too long. I liked the narrator.

Fascinating but overload

This book is fascinating, with all of the information that can be pulled together from around the world. However at times it is dry and long when the author reads from those books the information that he shares. He does share his insights and facts then reporting it like news however when he reads the sources, it gets pretty long. but I still enjoyed it.

The narrator sounded extremely Pompous, it was hard to follow and it made me not want to finish the book, which I didn’t

Hated the way the narrator spoke. Wasn’t entertaining at all. Felt like I was living in the 1920s. Made the book a hard listen. And even though the information seems good. It’s not a book I’d care to finish. It’s very unfortunate because I like David Childress. Plz refrain from hiring the narrator ever again. Would like to replace this book for something more palatable if possible. Thank you..

a conglomeration of conflicting stories

that was the point of me reading this book in the first place to get a different perspective a collective conglomeration of ancient stories and amazing engineering defeats of the past. still I'm left wanting. the book was very satisfied but might be a little drive for some readers.

Fantasy worthy of JKRowling

The best way to summarise this book is to use its title ‘Incredible Sciences.’ It is full of incredible but devoid of science. It’s all just comments from ancient fables and historic news stories sold as truth. The wealth of 5 star review is, quite frankly, terrifying. I thought we’d evolved beyond this nonsense?

Exelent

An open minded view of the mysteries (and conspiracies) of ancient history. Considering the most controversial rather than the most sensational. 5*
