I"m undecided and most assuredly mystified by many things here
11 August 2011 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Several here have made the assertion that ALL of the author's theories and assertions have been debunked. It certainly doesn't bode well if one poster was correct that a book completely mistranslated a photo just to be sensational.

I saw this in High School 30 years ago and ran across it again a few months ago. There are enough unexplained to-this-day things in here to make you wonder if ancient astronauts visited the earth. This is not to say I accept everything presented at face value, I just don't know.

Certainly this is worth viewing for entertainment as many have said, I just happen to think there are some legitimate theories. The most intriguing one for me was what appeared to be a battery. Well, watch for yourself and decide.
