The only reason I give this encyclopedia 4 stars instead of 5, is because the author includes so many references to Lemuria and Mu.

Ya buku yang terlalu biasa. Banyak bukti meyakinkan tentang keberadaan Atlantis,tapi tidak ada konklusi tentang letak atlantis sebenarnya.Ya membuatku tidak nyaman,adalah anggapan penulis bahwa kehancuran Sodom dan Gomora adalah alegori dari kehancuran Atlantis dan Lemuria. Padahal Sodom dan Gomora tak berkaitan sama sekali dengan peradaban yg hilang.

A very interesting book which can give a writer a number of excellent ideas for an adventure story or a parnanormal story.
