I have never read a book that stimulates my mind more than
"Fingerprints of the Gods". It's a true journey through time space and mythology, one that sucks you right in. There's no way you can put this book down. A truly wonderful piece of writing that will make you think; could this really happen? Have we as such a technologically advanced race actually forgotten an entire civilization. A civilization just as advanced, or maybe even more so, than our own? It makes you wonder why such obvious historical information has been so blatantly ignored. Anyone who is even remotely interested in ancient mythology should try this book. Whether you believe or not, it is guaranteed to make you think.

I once heard a phrase that changed my outlook on life: "Take what you want a leave the rest". Stop worrying about things and just take what makes sense and leave the rest behind.

I say this because some people, I honestly feel, put too much energy into "disproving" others and trying to put out their light! GEEZ, stop it.

The above applies to this book. I absolutely loved it - it is a most excellent read. It's actually really profound in the implications, and it is laid out in a more "technical" or "textbook" fashion - like a long, giant essay with specific points to make and backing them up with data and proof. Very well done.

Of course there were a few things that might give you a ???, but again just leave that behind and enjoy the book!

I'd say, 99% of the argument Hancock makes about our origins, our technology is culture is probably true. He presents wonderful evidence and it will blow your mind! He makes a VERY strong, logical and reasonable argument.

The book is LONG and I read it in about a week - it's THAT fascinating!! At times, Hancock departs from his "essay" style and brings his personal life stories into it, and adds a lovely personal touch.

If you want your mind opened, or even blown, get this book!

Graham Hancock is a must for those interested in the real History of humankind, without falling into fantasy, or hypothesis based on nothing, Graham does the work of a scientist and a investigator with an open mind, contrary to the typical archaeologists who continue to propagate wrong historic events every time they cannot explain with intelligence.

This is the most thought provoking book I have ever read. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. This is the first theory about the pyramids that actually makes sense and doesn't have any loose ends. This book is for people who like to think and who are open minded to new ideas. It follows Graham Hancock around the world as he explores many mysteries that have puzzled us for years, but then he discovers that they are all linked to once ancient source. I cannot say enough good things about this book, see for yourself.

This is a fascinating book which, while exploring the origins of diverse societies around the world and their accomplishments, also hints at our future and our place in the ongoing saga. The bibliography is the size of the average book and the author's extensive research certainly lends credibility to his theories about very early civilization on Earth, many thousands of years earlier than previous acknowledged.

This is a must have for those interested in history, anthropology, and even the occult. The author is well rounded in terms of knowledge related to his writings. His ideas are presented clearly, explained through diagrams, and elaborated upon with factual evidence. Great job with this book and others written by him. I have the utmost respect for Graham Hancock

Hancock is following in the footsteps of Däniken among others, and if you're interested in alternative history, this is a must-read! A classic book!
