A ton of usable information instead of the recycling of the same old tired and worn out Ancient Aliens story. I had to go back and read most of the material a 2nd time and in several areas a 3rd time due to the magnitude of it all. Originally I was trying to do all of the book in the audio format but found that it was more than I could process. Much much easier to keep my head above water by actually reading the material word for word the old fashion way. ABSOLUTELY love it to say the least. I give them a 5 out of 5 all the way around. I wore out the "back" button. Obviously my listening skills need to honed somewhat. LOL

This first book in the series is filled with an overview of humanity's development. It covers a broad span of time, includes mythology, religions, history, genetics, consciousness, and much more. This book is laying a foundation to "bring up to speed" people who have been busy working and paying bills and who may have had time to read or learn about some of these things, but not all of these things.
What I love about books is that a person takes a topic they have spent (hopefully) decades studying/doing/knowing and puts it all in one book. When covering the topic of humanity and the topic of UFOs and what it might mean, there's going to be a lot of foundation to lay if you want to look at the big picture.
Some people may have information on specific UFO incidents or specific people known in UFOlogy, but the big picture is harder to see. I really like to read the writings or ideas of people who wonder what it all means - such as John Keel or Jacques Vallee - they touch on such concepts and questions - they ask and think about what is happening to humanity in their writing.
This book was tough going for me. I had to use the "back" function on my iPod a lot. There isn't empty fluff in here and most sentences are info-packed and sometimes after a string of such sentences I had to go back and listen again because I got overwhelmed with so much information.
I took a break mid-way and bought the companion fiction book and listened to that. (Chasing Shadows by A.J. Hartley/Tom DeLonge) There's a big difference! That was entertaining, not deep.
This book is laying a knowledge foundation and I look forward to the rest of the series.
Will this finally be the "real truth?" Who knows. But I'm learning a lot and my mind is stretching. There's no way I could have spent the time to read all the books and ideas that are distilled into this one book, so I feel like a person who is interested in learning is going to get their money's worth. The difference in this book from the companion fiction book is evident, and a look at the other books by co-author Peter Levenda shows his scholarly interests.
The narration and audio book production are very good.

I'm sure there's a lot of research gone in into this book for there's a lot of information published it but good Lord is it long winded and I'm sure it could have been said more concisely and I don't agree with some on his assertions as that maybe about the Hindu Goddess China astable and his comparison with the reasons for A technical human sacrifice, definitely wrong. I won't be buying the other volumes.
