2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 7 Jan 2008
By Christopher Stout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read a few of the other Disinformation books, many of which had decent content and quality editing. This book, however, really disappoints. Rather than containing writings that cut through common knowledge and propaganda to find the truth behind issues, Underground! seems to be cobbled together from a random selection of essays that emphasize the incredible over the likely. Worse, some of the "experts" are shaky at best. Dave Dentel writes a sloppy Creationist screed entitled "Mysterious Origins - Are Humans Just a Happy Accident?" that trots out all the usual Intelligent Design "evidence" and pathetically misinterprets / misunderstands statements made by scientists such as Dawkins, Gould, etc. Not that his misunderstanding of evolutionary science should be surprising, as he is a newspaper copy editor. Not exactly sure how this qualifies him as an expert on the topic, but whatever. Also, just to nitpick, the editing is clearly weak. Yes, these books are collections of essays and you should expect the writers' voices to change throughout the book, but this is all over the map. Avoid Underground! and pick up one of the other generally interesting Disinformation books instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book ! 14 Jun 2009
By M. Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great book for those who are open-minded towards alternative history and archaeology that you weren't taught in school. Another great book with factual American history that wasn't in your school text books is "Everything You Know is Wrong" by the same Disinformation series. One story, that was never in my school books, is about the Ludlow Massacre in Colorado in 1914 in which at least 20 people were killed including women and 11 children by the Colorado National Guard

1.0 out of 5 stars Disinfo books deliver what they promise . . . disinfo 17 Aug 2006
By B. Kulp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a big conspiracy buff, have read quite a bit of alternative news and views, and I must say this book is a huge dissappointment. In fact, it's disspointing to the point of being suspect.

The articles included here in this collection are neither "astonishing" nor "hidden." There is little information to back up the claims of the authors, and nothing noteworthy is delivered in their promises of hidden knowledge.

A perfect example is the article on the 33rd parallel and ancient to modern anomalies regarding this phenomenon. Of course, the author just lays out the "syncronicities", but doesn't go so far as to even attempt to illuminate the reader of ideas surrounding it's significance. They don't go into details of links between the Knights Templars and modern masonry, historical numerology, occult tie-ins, or contemporary theories involving the Illuminati.

The Disinfo guide delivers what it promises, half-baked leads with no end in sight, and enough disinfo regarding ancient history to make you swear off researching the topic for good. Avoid this, and any other Disinfo book, as this one indicates the author takes his job of spreading disinfo seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan f'n tastic! 7 Dec 2005
By Chris Santiago - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is one of the best books I have ever read. This follows in the long line of great disinformation products. Like the Book of Lies, the disinfo dvd, the Russ Kick books, Anarchy for the masses, Joe Coleman's RIP, and all the other good stuff. Disinformation co. keeps getting better and better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 22 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a religious Christian with a solid belief in the Bible. I probably accept the Old Testament as more literal and less allegorical than most - even Christians. That sets the origins of my ancestry at about 4,000 BC with Adam and Eve. Admittedly, that doesn't fit well with much archaeological evidence of highly intelligent civilizations much earlier than that. That was one of my reasons for reading this book, and I was not disappointed. I found about half of the book very intriguing and compelling. There is more in this evidence that fits my beliefs than I expected. In fact, I think I could personally clarify some of the issues addressed in the book. (See below) I have not reconciled all of the apparent discrepancies between my religion and archaeology. However, I have an open mind and this book gave me a lot to consider, although it in no way diminished my belief in the Bible, including the Old Testament. (The other half of the book, particularly toward the end, contains some useless drivel that appears to be a desperate attempt to add pages to the book - which, incidentally, does nothing to increase by confidence in the availability of further information.)

I find it interesting how far scientists will go to discover evidence while totally ignoring information clearly presented in scripture. That is especially true with the New World theories. The Bible has been through so many transcriptions and translations that many precious truths have been lost or corrupted. However, regarding the New World, there is a book that has been in print for almost 200 years, translated directly to English, that presents a thorough history of one Mesoamerican civilization that existed from 600 BC to 400 AD as well as significant information regarding two earlier civilizations and valuable clues to other civilizations further north and probably also Polynesia. It's called the "Book of Mormon." Another book of scripture called "The Pearl of Great Price" includes a book called "Abraham" that was translated from writings of Abraham on papyrus. It is only 14 pages long but presents a ton of clues as to the source of the advanced scientific knowledge of the Egyptians.
