Publisher's Summary

Using tools as varied as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths, author Graham Hancock presents a compelling case to suggest that the story of mankind is far older than we have previously believed. And as the truth about prehistory and the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments is revealed, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us: a terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth at irregular intervals of time may be about to occur.


What the Critics Say

"A fancy piece of historical sleuthing...intriguing and entertaining and sturdy enough to give a long pause of thought." (Kirkus Review)

I did not observe any detraction owing to the narrator

Did Fingerprints of the Gods inspire you to do anything?

I am inspired to acquire and read the full edition of the book

Any additional comments?

The abridged edition was too short and I found the continuity of the story suffered. I could not follow a line through the presentation. I found the subject matter fascinating and the narration good from a storytelling perspective; however, as stated, the abridged content rendered the whole experience less effective than it might otherwise have been were it unabridged.
