Summary

The father of the ancient alien theory with more than 65 million books sold reveals everything he has withheld for years.

In all his years of service, why didn't Erich von Däniken ever doubt his theory that inhabitants of other planets had come into contact with humanity ages ago, and that they still observe us today?

How could von Däniken in all these years say firmly that the UFO phenomenon is real and that people are being abducted by aliens? Why does he repeatedly criticize the official historiography and our religions and thus accept scorn and hostility?

The answers to these questions are: Because Erich von Däniken spoke to people who supported his theories. Because people who saw UFOs or were kidnapped by aliens trusted him. And because experts and insiders inaugurated secrets known to only a few people.

In this audiobook, the now 81-year-old presents selected eyewitnesses and insiders for the first time, reveals secrets and stories that he has hitherto kept private, and presents reports and revelations that leave one speechless!

Interesting Book.... Worth A read...

I liked the bible related story, never heard that information anywhere before, eye opening.
Other interesting stuff as well... book is on the short side at 4 hours 14 minutes, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Not informative

Was hoping they this book would have more information about present day discoveries. Was a bit disappointed. Should have done my own homework and read the reviews.

Great story, but…

…it took some time to get past the way the reader says “nuh” or “yuh” after every word or phrase. Like he’s Smithers meets Rod Serling.
Once I got beyond that I had a great time listening.
Great to have an open mind.

the mysteries continue

more great information from von daniken, highly engaging although the narrator had a mannerism that became annoying after a few chapters.

Narrator

Narrator was horrible! Sorry but it was painful to hear his voice...almost always seemed like it was a condescending sound to it. Weird ending tone to statements/sentences.

Another Hit!

Again, this is another outstanding book by the master himself. I am always amazed with the information that is given as it always makes me question the truth and or lies about the existence of other worldly beings. As always, another collection added to the library. Don't hesitate to check this one out!
