Yet, this book wasn't one of my favorites. I felt the title mostly capitalized on the upcoming Mayan prophecy without really fully explaining it. I wanted a clear explanation for December 23, 2012 but felt this book didn't do any better of a job than any of the documentaries or articles I've already read. Could that be because it's all a bunch of bunk? Probably. But, fun bunk.
The author does make a very clear and believable argument that Mayan culture was so technologically and culturally advanced that some other ancient alien culture must have been involved. One thing I really like about Daniken as a researcher is that he actually goes into the field to examine the evidence and doesn't just rely on others' works and hearsay. This book also provides photographic evidence so the reader can 'see' for him or herself.
It is a really fast, really fun read and a good introduction to Daniken and his theories.
It is a quick and easy read that is thought provoking and leaves readers like myself to come to their own conclusion whether you believe what he writes. The material provided was interesting as well as some of the information Erich provided. What I found interesting was that he feels that in December 2012 he feels the world will not end, but change with the return of extraterrestrials. What I wish he could have touched on was some of the details behind the Chinese calendar and how it relates to the Mayan calendar in terms of the December date as I just do not seem to remember too much about that and if it was mentioned in the book.
He focused a bit on the Aztec and Mayan societies as the pillar for the December 2012 due to translation and interpretation of items not destroyed by the conquistadors and other artifacts. Whether the reader agrees with the interpretations is another thing.
A fun book to read that goes by pretty quick, and I am not a speed reader, and makes for interesting topics with other people for their thoughts. A worthy purchase from someone who took plenty of time researching this possible event, enjoy.
I have become fascinated with the TV show Ancient Aliens in which I first learned about Mr Von Daniken's research. He has me convinced that not only were the Mayans a civilization well ahead of their time, but leads me to believe that there is a reason why it has taken us so long to catch up. There must be some sort of extraterrestrial connection. But why write a book about the Mayan Calendar and then spend a dozen pages or so giving us the same information that we could find on the internet? I thought he was going to show me something profound, open my eyes to a new angle that I have never heard before. I was disappointed that a majority of the book bounced around from topic to topic like the rubber balls that the Mayans created from their trees. I was looking for more solid evidence supporting the significance of the Mayan calendar, but found very little.
In addition, he fails to go into greater detail, and instead references one of his other books. His reasoning for a lack of detail is due to the fact that he already wrote about the topic before. Then why are you writing about it in this book? To me, there is a clear lack of focus and organization that is frustrating. If you want to blow the reader away, then do it. Don't tease me with fascinating ideas and then move on the next topic. I was already on board, that is why I bought the book. Halfway through I wanted to put it down and watch another episode of AA.
For me, the book did not quite live up its hype, but regardless, I still find Erich Von Daniken to be a progressive thinker and I like the way he questions our basic beliefs.
