Introduction to Sitchin
This book is probably the best introduction to Zecharia Sitchin's work. It's easy to read and focuses on modern examples of his theories rather than ancient mythologies. I read this for the second time this year and was disappointed. If you're very familiar with his work I wouldn't waste your time on it. This book amazed me the first time I read it but now it seems to lack the depth that his other books have. Oh well. I do plan on reading all of his books a second time, and I don't foresee the same problem as with this one, except perhaps for the first half of the Twelfth Planet. Anyway, he was the leading theorist, in many ways still today, of the Ancient Astronaut theories. You don't have to prescribe to his theories to get a lot out of his books. His vast knowledge of ancient civilizations is more than enough to keep any reader's mind occupied! For the casual reader I do suggest beginning with this work before diving into the more in-depth Twelfth Planet (Book One of the Earth Chronicles).

Finally something to beleive in!
After reading Genesis, Revisited, it all comes together. I read it with a Bible next to me, lo and behold fact was based upon fact, and not just mear myths.

Great Fun, But Neither Science Nor Fiction
The author's essential premise is that a) civilization on earth was influenced by visitors from Niburu, an as yet undetected planet in our solar system and b) that they have an outpost on Mars which has been shooting down our space probes. The material is fascinating and the writing engaging as one might expect from a former journalist. Its major weakness is its failure to provide any references to source materials so the reader must either accept it as new gospel or not simply on its own terms.The tie in to The Book of Genesis is too sketchy to do justice to explain some of the admittedly strange material in the first book of the bible, material about the Nephilim, the sons of god, having sex with the daughters of men, and the story of the Tower of Babel which appears out of nowhere in scripture. Great fun but cosmology lite for those expecting more scientific rigor and fewer stories about aliens turning our ancestors into slaves to work in their gold mines 300,000 years ago.
