The best book about real history!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: History: Fiction or Science? (Taschenbuch)
Hey, this is as good as Richard Dawkins' genius book « God delusion », a real eye-opener. A friend passed it on to me, I was really bamboozled! We're having discussions here, about different book's topics, most of those who start as vehement critics of it and ardent defenders of consensual history version end up... the other way round! You don't need to agree upon everything it claims, but I think it's important that there's an alternative view that asks the rights questions so that you start to use your brains. Open your eyes and gape at what's going on in this world! Thanks a lot to the publishers!
I appreciated the astronomical datings issue (Chapter 2), especially about the Egyptian zodiacs (which happen to be all of medieval origin...). Another superbly written topic: the dating of ancient geographical maps (Chapter 5.11), or the 'Dark Ages' that never happened. I find the whole book very convincing, it doesn't boast with a completely polished chronological scale, it stirs the right questions like the lack of written evidence etc. And it is really very, very high science!
