Firstly, the editor or proofreader didn't check to make sure that paragraphs weren't repeated, or even partially repeated, on the adjacent page. "STREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKEKE ONE!"

    This book isn't about mainstream archeology, its about the many questions people have about human history. Questions like, "if homosapiens have been around for 150,000 years, how come in only the last 2000 or 3000 years have we become civilized? What did we do before that?" Sure it pulls a quote from a psychic in regards to Atlantis, or maybe it might pull facts from history that are questionable, but it also pulls from great theories and pieces together ancient manuscrpits, it makes us think!

It has us question what we truly know about ourselves as a species. We haven't been investigating our ancient past for very long, every day a new discovery sends archeology reeling. So embrace the fact we know nothing and enjoy every discovery and theory.

    Mayan bulldozers? Atlantis electricity? Ancient Indian flying machines? This book has it all! Mr. Childress, though needs an editor, lot of mistakes in this work. This book is hilarious. Great pseudo-science. He is a bit short on his explanation of time-frames and in general, proof of any kind of his really weird claims. Quite funny though. I might just have to read his book "the anti-gravity handbook" when my body starts sagging. Mayan bulldozers? Atlantis electricity? Ancient Indian flying machines? This book has it all!

    A lot of really good information about the ancient civilizations! He spends quite a good amount of time describing some of the amazing technology and theories of all the Egyptian technology especially. He even touches on Atlantis and some of the other "mythical" areas. I had heard this book was a bit slow, and in some places it is, but I still enjoyed it all the same. For me it was a great read!

    This book was most impressive in giving details on different parts of the world where technological triumphs were achieved in times in history when it would have been an impossibility, even in today's world. One example they use in the book is the Inca Empire where blocks were 200 ton blocks were moved and put into place with precision to the millimeter. The book is most intriguing!

    This was page after page of enlightenment! Did you know the Meditteranean Sea was aland mass? Did you know that there was a pre-flood civilization that marks us as "advanced" 10,000 years ago? Read the book. He's on H2 often, and my respect for his scholarship has sky-rocketed~~ RECOMMENDED! This was page after page of enlightenment! Did you know the Meditteranean Sea was aland mass?

    I found this book in a random bookstore at the resort we were staying for our summer vacation more than 10 years ago. I've always been fascinated by ancient history and culture so this book looked really interesting. What I found between the covers, however, was not only interesting but amazing. In terms of revelations, in terms of information. If you are interested in history or just need to polish your knowledge a bit - this book is definitely for you. One of my favourites, for sure.

    This books goes into detail about many of the topics covered in the History Channel's show Ancient Aliens. It includes pictures and many first hand accounts from archaeologists and explorers. While I don't ascribe to many of these theories totally, they are interesting to read and provide an alternate theory as to how ancient civilizations built their monoliths and for what purposes.

    Reading this book made me think, have we progressed in our life style compared to ancient people. Were our ancestors far more advanced than what we are? Proofs and information in hand does point in this direction. Our ancestors were more in unison with nature - that was the reason they could achieve those marvels. Marvels, in front of which today's science and technology is embarrassingly dwarfed. I am not appreciative of today's science. Because it disconnects us from nature.

    David Hatcher Childress wrote this fascinating book on historical theory at a comprehensive level. There is work from 12000 years ago to the end of the last century BC. The chapters described the rise of fall of ancient civilizations from a technological standpoint.

There is work from 12000 years ago to the end of the last century BC. The chapters described the rise of fall of ancient civilizations from a technological standpoint. Each chapter offered evidence of a different technological capability, a justification for the suppositions, and elimination of opposition theories. Evident in each presentation was research into the mechanics, geological ramifications, and ancient literature. No single religion or civilization was given bias. Attention appeared instead to details respecting the most awe: ancient pyramids, caves, artifacts, and ruins. Technology associated with these relics were then the object of investigation. Rationale remained fact-based against many of the pre-existing brute force theories for the accomplishments of our ancient ancestors. Their accomplishments and disappearances could have realistically been a result of technologies that to us would appear to be supernatural in nature or origin!

    Good book that examines written records and artifacts to prove a higher level of technology in our distant past.

    David Childress makes some interesting points, however, I have some issues with this book. First, the editing leaves quite a bit to be desired; pages don't always match up, paragraphs get repeated when you turn the page, things like that. Second, there are lots of photographs to accompany the text, which this subject matter definitely needs, but often the images are not labeled, they do not appear to have anything to do with what is being discussed on the page, and quite frankly, many of them are David Childress makes some interesting points, however, I have some issues with this book.

They reminded me of a student in middle school who uses a nearly broken copy machine to copy pictures from a book, then glues them into their report. I would not recommend this book as a first entrance to reading about ancient cultures. Instead, I would suggest Graham Hancock's "Fingerprints of the Gods" Hancock's book is much better put together, the supporting images are clear and meaningful, and the style leads to greater credibility.

    See if this is correct. Very similliar information in many of this guys books, some rehashed over. Sometimes over the top on theories. The simplest answer is usually the correct one. Yes, ancient cultures had technology. Yes they were as advanced as we are or even more so, but highly advanced civilizations crash hard. Next time lets prevent that a little. Oh and for my Space Operations guys, "one day too new is bad, but older is better." See if this is correct. Very similliar information in many of this guys books, some rehashed over.

    Some really fascinating stuff! Lots of compelling ideas to contemplate. There is a lot of speculation but some of the ideas really make sense. I don't know why but I can really get into this type of stuff. I read this because of the History series Ancient Aliens. It is the second book I've read related to the subject.

    The different kinds of ancient technologies were quite interesting. I just didn't like the author's writing. It felt like a collection of essays poorly put together with (sometimes) random images. This book needed some serious editing. Otherwise the actual point the author was trying to make rather good.

    Speculations on historical and archeological mysteries from around the world. What I like about Childress writing is that he abstains from making absolute statements on his various theories and speculations on ancient world technology. Not to be taken too seriously, but interesting to think about and very entertaining…

    Gave up. Typos throughout and some bad grammar. I did learn about the Wyoming tiny mummy though. Apparently that's a real thing. But I just don't believe the ancient peoples went to space. How would they have survived the lack of atmosphere? It wasn't even addressed. Just assumed that the reader would accept it as fact. Gave up. Typos throughout and some bad grammar.

    Another "Ancient Aliens" read, along with Von Daniken's books. Centers heavily on unexplained artifacts from early- and pre-history Earth. Lots of talk of Vimanas, ancient India's flying machines. Great read, but again light on concrete evidence. Another "Ancient Aliens" read, along with Von Daniken's books.

    I mean, this book actually isn't terrible. I am fascinated by phenomena such as UFO sightings and Bigfoot sightings and other weird things. Do I think Childress is right? Can't really say. Most of the book is making speculations (which he admits to early on) but those speculations or no more out there than other explanations. For instance, I find it just as plausible that events recorded in the Bible and other sacred texts describe encounters with other worldly beings as it is they describe what I mean, this book actually isn't terrible.

    Much more thought-provoking and self-consistent than the History Channel show, Ancient Aliens. It's a look into the technologies of prehistoric past. It gave me many flashbacks to Stargate SG-1, which deals with many of these topics in dramatic narrative, e.g. that ancient pagan temples might have had electric light, which is literally a whole episode, "The Light" (S04e18), or them holding ancient knowledge and technology for thousands of years in "The Sentinel" (S05e20).
