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!
