Of all the books on Atlantis to appear in recent years, I value Erikson and Zapp's book as one of the best. It is a cornucopia of new ideas regarding the origins of Mesoamerican civilisation and the Atlantcan tradition. Its clues on ancient navigation could provide vital keys in understanding transoceanic contact prior to the age of Columbus. Well worth the read.
Finally. A long waited book that is taking seriously the misterious stone spheres of Costa Rica. They are still a mistery, but the book is suggesting, and sustaining with some evidence, a totally new theory, not only about the spheres, but also about the history of the human race. Very rich material and a lot of information.
