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.

So they dug in to the latest research on neuroscience, psychology, and physiology, looking for big answers. Instead they found small answers - proof that small adjustments in daily routines, including thought patterns, food and drink, rest, and movement, can fight the forces that sap our energy and store focus and drive.

This steady growing apart is often mentioned as a troubling indicator by scholars and policy analysts, though seldom addressed by politicians.
