5.0 out of 5 stars In his time, they said Galileo was crazy, too!, 17 Jun 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Twelfth Planet: The First Book of the Earth Chronicles (Hardcover)
The 12th Planet is among the most intriguing, thought provoking books recently written. While in past decades I'd barely given notice to Von Danikken and Velikovsky, Sitchin captured my attention and imagination from the start. His theories appear to have a wealth of leads originating across the sciences; from archeology and astronomy through genetics and geology to zoology and zoomorphism. However, many critics have deplored the sketchiness of his seemingly profuse documentation.

Isolated, many facets of the evidence are tenuous and easy to dismiss, but the depth and scope of the sum total will cause any critical (yet open) mind to ponder with wonder. You need not take it all seriously to enjoy the read, just imagine the possibilities.

And to the reader who labeled Sitchin as "nuts", please tell us how Sitchin (if as he claimed), using ancient archeological and textual evidence, predicted findings of the Voyager planet flybys in contradiction to modern "expert" opinions?
