    1. Graham Hancock

    1. Graham Hancock's long awaited sequel is more an expansion of previously explored themes in Fingerprints of the Gods, rather than, as the title suggests, an exploration of lost knowledge.For this reader, this was something of a disappointment, as I have long held the position that the ancients were far wiser than we currently understand, however, Hancock at least illustrates the astronomical and astrological knowledge contained in the lost civilizations, and how this could have been transferred t [...]

    2. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Hancock, in the opening address puts forward his central premise: The arrival of two comets, some 12800 and 11600 years ago, destroyed an advanced civilisation where the survivors told of a time when 'mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe'.Hancock then continues, "Did they bring the comets on themselves?", which sounds ominous.In the end, Hancock's claim is reasonable, if not proven directly, but his suggestion this advanced civilis [...]

    3. New discoveries like Gobekli Tepi and Gunung Padong have added to Hancock's contention that there could have been a high civilization in the past. I like the fact that he is on more solid footing knowing that we have good evidence for a cometary impact that kicked off the Younger Dryas. While this subject will necessarily be speculative, Hancock has dug up a lot to bolster his argument. This was an interesting read.

    4. I read Fingerprints of the Gods twenty years ago, when mainstream science thought that Graham Hancock was mad! His latest book is full of new details as the science community is starting to admit that his ideas might just be correct. Its a bit long at almost 500 pages, but well worth the read.

    5. Graham Hancock has toppled the existing timeline in our history books and raises a lot of questions. Old ways of thinking and academics clinging on to their precious theories need to rethink a lot and let go of their egos for the betterment of humanity as a whole. This book serves as a waking and a warning at the same time. I have been following Mr. Hancock's work for the last ten years and this is the pinnacle of it for me. I applaud this groundbreaking book. Everyone remotely interested in the [...]

    6. An outstanding, thought-provoking look at new archaeological finds and their potential impact on how the rise of civilization is taught. Could also be called "A Tale of Two Comets."

    7. Disclaimer: I am a big fan of Graham Hancock and just finished meeting him while on signing tour of this exact book. Therefore, this review will certainly be biasly written in the positive.Mr. Hancock has a remarkable ability to connect dots of antiquity. The lines he connects illuminate a cataclysmic event that caused unfathomable and practically instantaneous changes to the earth which resulted in mass extinctions and nearly wiped out humanity as well. The mounting peer-reviewed scientific evi [...]

    8. Hancock, as usual, has researched the topic thoroughly and professionally, and he succeeds in supporting his thesis that ours is not the first advanced civilization this planet has had, and more importantly, makes a great case for the prior civilization having fallen during a planetary cataclysm of proportions only seen in extreme Hollywood blockbusters. Furthermore, his book paints a convincing picture of what this cataclysm was, showing the proof still to be seen in the geological and archeolo [...]

    9. Something smelled for me regarding the history of humanity as it's been agreed upon by the establishment. Every piece of evidence against that status quo, and there are many that by themselves would destroy the entire picture, was discarded, if considered at all, as an exception. How could the Sphinx have been made by dynastic Egyptians, if the bedrock its blocks belonged to shows signs of water erosion that put the construction at at least 10,000 years old? How (and when) were the Giza pyramids [...]

    10. Oh,Graham Hancock, how I enjoy you.I received this book, happily, as an ARC from the GoodReads First Reads program in exchange for an honest review.The focus ofMagicians of the Gods is Hancock's belief that the end of the Younger Dryas period was caused by a celestial impact. This asteroid strike, or multiple strikes as he believes that it split in the atmosphere, was primarily focused upon the ice shelf at the Canadian/US border and created the scablands that we see there today. So, what does t [...]

    11. Graham does it again. This was an updated version of his other great book Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilization. He gives great evidence to civilization being on this Earth way longer then what our history books tell us. I listened to this which was great because Graham read it.

    12. "It upsets our carefully structured ideas of how civilizations should behave, how they should mature and develop, when we are confronted by a case like Göbekli Tepe that starts out perfect at the beginning and then slowly devolves until it is just a pale shadow of its former self.""My thoughts about this immense book and the topics Mr Graham talks about?" It's fantastic! He's done a lot of research, which you can tell, and writes in such a way that it makes you want to keep reading it. Why did [...]

    13. I can remember reading Hancock's first book Fingerprints of the Gods quite a few years ago now and feeling like my mind had been opened to a new world history that is repeatedly denied us by successive governments and the 'powers that be'. Magicians of the Gods revisits some of Hancock's earlier research and revises it with up to date scientific thinking drawing to a startling conclusion.First of all, it's important to point out this book is not one of those crackpot alien books that pretends to [...]

    14. This my friends, is an amazing journey through time and places all around the world and beyond ! I have learned so much and been captivated by the evolution of the author quest of sense through the reading of the most ancient myths, archeologic sites and clues about the very untold origins of human civilisation! This is what i would love to read in scholar books instead of the boring rational and fake story of humanity.Even if I know why they won't ever change the established version I want to t [...]

    15. I'm a fan of alternate historical theories in general. I think it's important to continue asking questions, even after a "standard" has been set because there is always new evidence and research. My expectation for this book was that it would be a continuation of Fingerprints of the Gods, and to some extent I found that to be true. I never expected to find some great secret knowledge revealed in this book because I find those claims to give alternative history a bad name. What I appreciate about [...]

    16. I have seen Hancock in interviews and he is a great raconteur - perhaps what led me to read this book. I had to struggle through the last 5 chapters just so I could say I finished it; it is that dull. It is not so much that Hancock refers to burial sites/excavations in far-flung regions of the world as if you have read all of his previous work where these were mentioned, but the book does not offer really anything so interesting in the way of theories. Ok, so there was a comet in the Younger Dry [...]

    17. Interesting conceit, however, some of the leaps of imagination required you to suspend a lot of belief.For example, his point on 540 being a precessional number can be summed up as - "take the heartbeat of precession, 72, halve it and add it to itself to get 108. Halve 108 - you get 54; multiply it by 10 to get 540." That's the number of pillars in Angkor Wat! And in Edfu! Coincidence, I think soYes, I get it - we might be underestimating the high civilisations of yore, both in terms of achievem [...]

    18. I can't stop talking about this book, seriously! If you are a history buff and one who has an open mind on things, then this is a book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed Graham Hancock's case on lost civilizations in ancient times, and found some of it pretty convincing. He doesn't force you to believe his findings, but rather presents his evidence and why counter arguments do not seem valid. After reading Magicians of the Gods, I have so many questions and quite an open outlook of our past. Pick up [...]

    19. Hancock is always an interesting read and this is definitely no exception. I'm intrigued by the idea of a lost civilisation and its survivors seeding our first great civilisations. There are some very interesting theories, sometimes well-argumented, but there's also a lot of speculation and quite a bit of it couldn't really convince me. Meanwhile, it's a worthy sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods and everyone who liked that book will probably like this one.

    20. Great bookminor criticisms, gets a bit slow in parts with his retelling of whole conversations or multiple retellings of examples that were already given.

    21. Once again, a most compelling argument for the existence of a lost civilization of great antiquity and high technology.

    22. Interesting premises and an entertaining writing style, although sometimes a bit long-winded. The book definitely gave me some fun ideas to play with as a writer.

    23. Really loved it! Graham Hancock has an easy writing style and away of laying out facts and separating the fiction to give the reader space to make up their own mind.

    24. Overall I found this to be a really interesting book. I do not necessarily agree with every conclusion Hancock draws, but he does ask some really good questions and presents compelling evidence. For those of you not familiar with Graham Hancock, he researches and writes about his thesis that a prehistoric Ice Age civilization existed that was erased from history by the Younger Dryas (a sudden 1,200 year long mini ice age after the last ice age) and subsequent climate change and destruction of Ic [...]

    25. What can I say? I've dug Graham Hancock since 1992, when I first read his "Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant". And back then, after closing the book, I concluded that if there ever was an Ark, Hancock probably found its final resting place. However, since that time, my inquest into Biblical scholarship changed my mind and I'm convinced he was really chasing a ghost. On the other hand, I still recommend it because it's a real life Indiana Jones adventure and I leave it [...]

    26. Very good. Continues the investigation started in Fingerprints of the Gods. Read that one first, if you haven't already. He really lays out the case for an antediluvian human society. The book is a bit bloated, though. A lot of details about certain geologists and his personal connections with them and his travels, etc. This book is a good 440-page book that could have been a great 300-page book. Still, well worth reading if this subject interests you.

    27. Another great book by Hancock. Its a sequel to Figerprints of the Gods. Its a out all the lastest archelogical discoveries and his theory about a comets hitting the earth between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago.
