    "'Is it unreasonable to assume?!'"

    Where to start, raises some interesting historical points but the whole book is case of painting a bullseye around where he's thrown his dart of research. The delivery is compelling but too many times I had to pause the narrative in order to stare into the distance at how easy he grouped events/ideas together merely because the facts didn't prove it wrong. If I hear 'Is it unreasonable to assume' one more time I might cry, the thoughts have no critical assessment and it ruins the basis of some interest points. I would recommend this if you're into a fiction based losely on facts.

    "A must read"

    A thoughtful, intelligent and comprehensive interdisciplinary work uniting mythology from a multitude of cultures and ages with modern scientific knowledge, and beautifully narrated by the author. Cannot recommend it enough. Moving right on to the sequel, Magicians of the Gods!

    "Compelling and well presented"

    A great read for those who have a notion that there must be more to know about our past on the earth. Graham brings together many facts, theories and research which paint an alternative view of prehistory when combined.

    Nothing wacky or far fetched, more a focus on the new, overlooked and unwelcome evidence that misfits the established and accepted view of events in pre-history. It may be a sound set of theories or possibly flawed in various areas, for my money it represents a more believable and logical depiction of our past than we have in our history books.

    Loved it

    "The book mainstream scholarships ignore for truth."

    Very insightful into the true purpose of the Pyramids of Giza and how there measurements mathematically hold - for example: the earths circumference, Pi and how and when the shadows they cast show constellation measurements for 10's, 100's and 1000's of years and Graham's evidence of civilised society's going further back then is correctly recognised by mainstream scholars.

    "Valuable coverage of ancient earth human history"

    Graham Hancock did a wonderful job narrating his 1995 book Fingerprint of the Gods. I started this series with book 2, Magicians of the Gods, 2015, and it is interesting to see how much fine tuning Graham Hancock did in the 20 year span between the two related books. And, they are two entirely different books, with Magicians of the Gods focusing on a very significant geological event and its effect on humans and human's knowledge of their own history. Fingerprints of the Gods is an excellent introduction and foundation into the research going beyond the public narrative of mainstream academia and what is taught in public schools. Humanity's history, and earth's history is far more interesting than what is taught.

    This book was pretty serious in parts, and I had to divert to a couple of other books in the meantime before returning to complete it. I've mulled over what I have learned in this book, and see how it fit with the two David Wilcock books read in the meantime. There is so much connection between their work - both authors are "big picture" oriented. David Wilcock even refers to Graham Hancock's work within his books too.

    The third book of this trilogy will be coming later this year (2016) and I am looking forward to reading (listening) to that.

    "Captivating and thought provoking to say the least"

    Graham Hancock confronts us with a most utterly skilfull narration of the ancient history underlying the most enigmatic archaeological monuments known to mankind, such as the majestic pyramids and the leonine Sphinx that adorn the now barren desert landscape of the Giza plateau. His insightful and daring hypotheses are perversely bold. Is it a coincidence that this book is both perversely engaging whilst conveying, nonetheless, the grandeur of the ancients with the dual fascination of both scientific mathematical exactness and the magical mysticism of legend and myth? Alas, it is not. The calendric precision of a great vanished civilization is provocative beyond measure, to say the least. Graham Hancock comes across as a demigod, a direct heir of the wisdom cult of the Viracocha, who by means of sacred geometry and long-forgotten technological advancements, hidden beneath the imposing and impenetrable ice layers of the lost continent of Antarctica, transcended the challenges of global bituminous cataclysms through countless epochs. His account of the heroic feats by Thoth, Quetzalcoatl, and other bearers of great knowledge, are masterfully composed to evoke a grappling sense of urgency upon the world to initiate itself out from uniformitarian rigidities and into the new astrological calendric Era of Aquarius before catastrophe befalls our world engulfing it in the flames of the End Times.

    "Excellent information well delivered."

    Great presentation on theories of origins of various prehistoric structures. The pyramids of Egypt, Cities of South and Central America and other sites are discussed and similarities in legends from geographically diverse populations are presented.

    "excellent research"

    I found that Hancock did very well at citing his references for the work he borrowed from other researchers. The book was refreshing to hear there may be insights to ancient histories that our society is unaware of. Keep up the great work.

    "A book for all species of human."

    Great thought provoking book. A little confusing when he gets into the numbers, dimensions, equations, etc. Some visual aide or research of the various monuments would make everything come together.

    Finally finished it.. I'm not very good at reading, I don't give myself time to do it but with the audiobook was very easy for me. Loved it. I would recommend to everyone who wants to open his/her mind to a different reality, different history. Understanding it will give you enough arguments to feel you finally understand the world and civilizations.
