Product Description

Product Description

Erich von Däniken again shows his flair for revealing the 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, Erich von Däniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery, and makes some fascinating revelations about the equally incredible Book of Enoch. Von Däniken also unearths the intriguing story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels. He supplies evidence that the metal library not only has links to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers. And what about the mysterious lines in the desert of Nazca that look like landing strips when viewed from the air? Archeologists claim they are ancient procession routes. "Think again!" cries von Däniken as he reveals the data that the archeologists never even thought to check. History Is Wrong will challenge your intellect—and maybe a few long-held beliefs. This is Erich von Daniken's best book in years!

mr von daniken once again never forces his opinions on anyone,he gives his writings to those who read with an open mind,it is for the newcomer to make of it what they wish,these are the findings,some, not all,, of the groundwork has been done,the rest is up to you.may i just say this,if what mr von daniken and other writers like him are a bunch of idiots,why do the old guard fall over themselves to condemn these people?.the same goes for ufos,if they are a figment of our imagination,why do the authoritys and the big guns come out of the woodwork to go out of there way basicaly to say they dont exist!!.come on you guys,your in a corner and you know it.we are not living in the 1950s,people are asking questions,weather baloons,!!!.come on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good effort, uninteresting result 6 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With this author, when you open his books, usually from the off you are titillated by the morsels of information and the photographs supplied, to explain a sometimes alternative view to accepted history dished up by establishment "quackademics". For those who have read previous books, I am sorry to say, you will find this book a disappointment.

This book is almost like a diatribe, the last words of a maestro before he retires or dies. He puts straight items in his own history that he feels are wrong, using actual letters and correspondence as proofs.

In parts the translation from German is awkward. The few black and whites plates are practically useless as the print quality makes the detail almost invisible. The only new information I learned was on page 184 about peculiarities in the soil at Nasca.

I applaud Mr von Daniken's quest, but feel this book helps little in the journey.
