Format: Paperback
Judging by all the reviews, this book has obviously polarized readers for decades. However, despite all the criticisms and detractions, few can deny the power of Daniken's provokative theories. As a critical thinker who is open-minded, but not gullible, I have to say that I really enjoyed the read, and am glad to have a copy of Chariots of the Gods on my bookshelf. Even if you discard half of what passes as evidence in this book, it is hard to deny that at least a portion of the information presented invites further questions, and merits further research. So, at the very least, I give it a positive rating because of the entertainment factor, and for the conversation-starter that it is ;)

Loved the book, great for ANYONE who is entertained by the idea that mainstream religion and/or archeology and/or science is only ever half right at best at revealing the tale of true human origins. Also recommend for further reading Zecharia Sitchins "Earth Chronicles, Book 1, The 12th Planet"

A viewer from Los Angeles suggests that the public needs the kind of film represented by "Chariots of the Gods." What kind of benefit does the public receive from misinformation passed off as documentary and science but unsupported by any acceptable, scientific evidence? No wonder the United States ranks last in the educational systems of industrial countries. We choose to believe von Daniken's lies over documented theories. The public at large would do better to watch NOVA, especially the program debunking "Chariots of the Gods" than "Chariots of the Gods" the movie. Maybe then, more people would know who to spell BELIEVE.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I recall NOVA, the award winning PBS-TV science series, did a close up of Erich Von Daniken and his Chariots book. NOVA did not shamelessly attack him and his "theory" but used simple, rational, and basic scientific steps in analysis of "evidence" to turn Mr. VD and his presentation into sawdust. NOVA showed multiple times of his out-right distortions, misrepresentations and perhaps fraudulent portrail of fact. As I remember the NOVA program only focused on Mr. VD because of the emmense popularity of his book and movie. In my opinion this book does more damage than entertain. It's a sad commentary on people to have and continue to put money in his pocket. His history of success with this tripe shows how much people are lacking in critical thinking. Keep in mind, "Believe nothing you hear and half of what you see." Just keep in your mind simple, basic skeptisim. Perhaps the book is a "neat" cosmic idea but reality and scientic discovery of the universe we live in passes him and his believers at the speed of light. Those left to wonder about the world thru his eyes are being terribly short-sighted. I feel this book should be filed in the drawer under "Beliefs" which has no responsiblity to be rational.

As a student of archaeology, it saddens me to see something as false and incorrect as von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods, given such attention. His evidence has been disproven by the scientific community, something that has not been passed on to the average viewer. Chariots of the Gods is in no way helpful. It's theories, many of them based on evidence that was artifically created, draw the public's attention away from scholarily research to off the wall theories created by a man without any sort of formal education. He has no degree or higher training in archaeology, yet his theory is more widely read than most Harvard professors. If the public wants to watch this pseudo-documentary, they are more than welcome, but science does not give Chariots of the Gods any more credit than Rocky Horror Picture Show. I agree with Blockbuster's take on this film, shelving it beside Independence Day and Jaws.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Von Daniken masterwerk which has been debunked in so many ways that I find it incredible that publishers still have the nerve to print it. I was into UFO's and the like when I was a kid and even then I didn't believe this. One thing that even my child's brain could see was that he criticises archeologists at every turn, yet quotes them as gospel if they happen to support the point he's currently making.
There's a desert photo of what looks like an airplane parking lot in one of his books. He tries to show that alien space-craft used this. In reality this pattern is only a few yards long and may have been of use to toy spacecraft. When challenged by a TV documentary team about this, and other issues, Von Daniken vowed to correct future editions. He didn't do it.
I'll bet that photo is still there - along with the other misrepresentations.

This was not my first time reading Chariots of the Gods. It is a classic and I had to make it a part of my home library. It is a book I highly recommend to all readers. I first read it at 12 years old then again at 26. An easy read that will make a person think.
