Review by miketroll
A pseudo-science "classic" in that it has remained an enormous best-seller since its publication in 1968. To that extent it is a book of historic interest.The late Erich von D was a fraud. He himself knew that much of the "evidence" he presented for extra-terrestrial visitation of Earth was specious. He consciously wrote for the gullible and credulous, carefully avoiding debate of rational objections to his ET fantasies. In his favour it can be said that he aroused enormous worldwide interest in ancient civilisations and their advanced technological capabilities. On the other hand, his presence in this arena has made many real scientists wary of setting foot in it.
