There are some great parts to this book. I really enjoyed the chapter by Michael Cremo on his findings that man is very very ancient indeed and we have had highly evolved civilisations in the past. I thought that the chapter on Ayurveda was perhaps the best introduction to the subject I have ever read. Other chapters by other authors are weaker, more superficial and less uninformative. But overall, this is a useful book.
