Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance--the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth had been visited by aliens. This world-famous bestseller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eyes of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began--von Daniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Daniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendants of these galactic pioneers--and the archeological discoveries that prove it... * An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid * Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts * Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins * A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica * A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes Includes remarkable photos that document mankind's first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

3.5 Stars I think this sums up the book Don't misinterpret my rating. I gave it 3.5 stars based on entertainment value alone. To sum of the belief the author, in the past, aliens visited pre homo sapien man, bred with the women and came back later to check up on us and breed a bit more.The author ...
If I had never read this book I probably wouldn't be into all the amazing books I am now into. I love Erich, he was a down-to-earth ordinary bloke who thought he saw more to history than the boring, mundane, Darwinian evolutionary tale that is offered in the mainstream! LOL He took up the challeng...
6-7 sene önce okumama rağmen bu kitabın beni bir hayli etkilediğini hatırlıyorum. Adamın öne sürdüğü tezler o kadar ilginçti ki uzaylıların dünyaya geldiğine ikna olabilirsiniz. Tam olarak bilimsel bir kitap değil, adamın teorileri bunlar ama yine de çok iyiydi.
Unmitigated tosh from cover-to-cover. Admittedly, I was taken in at age 11, but how any adult could accept this tissue of lies is beyond me. Interesting, maybe, for its sci-fi concepts, but as one of the initiators of modern pseudo-science, an awful, awful book.You are not entitled to your opinion. ...
