I take great enjoyment reading books like this. In this case, the authors claim to have discovered a cluster of ancient sites scattered across the world that lay upon certain latitudes.

I tried, truly tried to understand how they figured out these latitudes but couldn't. As far as I can determine, they find an ancient site and "cook" the numbers until it lies upon one of their latitudes.

Oh, well, it is fun to imagine a lost Atlantean civilization that spanned the globe and founded every other civ

This is one book that is for open-minded people. If you walk into this already doubting their theory before the evidence is laid out, then the book will be ridiculous and probably offensive. If you have an open mind and are unbiased towards alternate ideas, this book will open your eyes like never before. The authors make clear distinctions between what are absolute facts, undeniable by the scientific and religious communities, such as the enigma of the Piri Reis map, and theories and ideas.

If you're interested in Atlantis, lost civilizations, etc., then this book is definitely worth a read. I found the most interesting pieces to be the evidence of Antarctica as a potential site for Atlantis, complete with comparisons to ancient maps, the concept of the North Pole having moved twice before from the Yukon and Hudson Bay, and the subsequent mapping of ancient sites. No doubt the authors have uncovered some very interesting correlations here on locations of ancient sacred sites and th ...more

IT WAS A CONSPIRACY!!!

I'm hoping it'll be like Hollow Earth: The Long and Curious History of Imagining Strange Lands, Fantastical Creatures, Advanced Civilizations, and Marvelous Machines Below the Earth's Surface...but one level closer to a primary source. Er, as primary sources go.

This ties hand in hand with Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock, however this book, in my opinion, is slightly on the duller side.

It contains alot of highly intelligent and interesting facts about ancient civilizations and the history of the Earth along with some mythology and theories.

However, the style of writing is slightly all over the place, difficult to follow, and strays from the main topic quite often. A good read for educational purposes, not for pleasure.

Although some are quick to dismiss the idea of Atlantis, the writers of this book displayed a lot of well thought out and researched hypotheses, and present corroborating information in such a way that leaves you truly convinced of its existence, and it's location. O_O I was mesmerised by this book upon reading it 2 years ago.

Pretty good alternative with some decent numbers. I don't claim to be a math genius, but it seemed like the Flem-Aths chose what they wanted and then made the numbers fit what they wanted them to fit. Where their theories interesting? Yes. Are they plausible? Maybe. I leave that for you to decide for yourself.

A great idea, and one that must be read by people who wonder about the existence of Atlantis. Some of it was hard to follow and some of it was poorly written I think but it would be a great introductory book to someone that is interested in the subject. Much of Wilson and Fleming's theory revolves around Plato's Map, the Piri Reese (Spelling?) map and Polar Shift.
Chris Tice
The shifting of the Earth on its axis as described by the authors explains a lot about the magnetic shifts of iron deposits in the Earths crust.
I found some of the other logic difficult to follow but the Antarctica location seemed pretty solid.
Jayaprakash Satyamurthy
Not enough of Wilson's just-above mediocre yet beguiling style, and too far into out and out crankiness.

Extremely interesting. Much should be taken with a grain of salt (maybe!?). Very Cool!

Particularly interesting companion read to Edgar Cayce's Atlantis texts...a very compelling series of well-put academic essays
