    Should be classified as 'Fantasy'

    A classic of invented history, Erich von Daniken's "Chariots of the Gods" has about as much to do with science and reality as does the Lord of the Rings. It can be quite the entertaining read if only for the absurdity of its content. Von Daniken is apparently not familiar with proper research techniques or reasoning, pulling conclusions out of the air and making connections that could be described as frivolous at best. The level of non sequitur in this book would make an editor of the New Yorker blush.

    Overall it can be an enjoyable read, in the same way one might enjoy a 1950s sci-fi B-movie. But to treat it as science is laughable and intellectually indefensible. The book should be re-classified as Sci-Fi/Fantasy, where it deservedly belongs.

    Crazy

    The book does start out saying it is fiction. But if Erich von Daniken really believes what he is writing I think he is crazy. To insinuate that God is a space alien and not the creater of heaven and earth and man is at the top of the list of insane!

    Not science

    I don't know why this ebook is in the "Science and Nature" section, but it is not science. This work has been on the receiving end of numerous rebuttals and debunkings, including two entire books, Clifford Wilson's _Crash Go the Chariots_ and Ronald Story's _The Space God's Revealed_. Also, as Jason Colavito pointed out in a 2004 issue of _Skeptic_, much of von Danikan's work in this book can be traced directly back to the mythos created by H.P. Lovecraft in many of his books.
