Sitchin’s When Time Began, the fifth book in the Revolutionary Earth Chronicle series is another amazing read from the seven book series. Sitchin relies mainly on Sumerian and Egyptian writings, sacred artifacts, and ancient architecture to provide amazing insights on the origins of the calendar, astronomy, and astrology. In addition, Sitchin reveals the chaotic times for both gods and men with the arrival of a New Age. Leaving behind the Age of Taurus, Sitchin takes his readers on the climax ci ...more

★ - Most books with this rating I never finish and so don't make this list. This one I probably started speed-reading to get it over with.
★★ - Average. Wasn't terrible, but not a lot to recommend it. Probably skimmed parts of it.
★★★ - Decent. A few good ideas, well-written passages, interesting characters, or the like.
★★★★ - Good. This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think - it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was pretty decent too.

Sitchin's material is cutting edge, although it can be somewhat dense and academic. Ancient aliens directing the course of the earth is the theme of most of his writing. His research is so thorough and his theories so logical that I suspect he will one day be seen as a visionary who "figured it out" long before conventional science.

When the Greeks adopted Thoth, the god of the Game of 52, as their god Hermes, they bestowed on him the title Hermes Trismegistos, "Hermes the thrice greatest." Perhaps they recognized that he had thrice guided Mankind in the observation of the beginning of a New Age-the changeover to Taurus, to Aries, to Pisces.
For that was, for those generations of Mankind, when Time began.

Really interesting information, a bit wordy and technical at times.
