While this book is fun to look through, the text is full of all kinds of spelling and factual errors.

An intersting book that highlights lost (and some found) treasures around the world and their stories. Great for people interested in ancient history and artifacts. Some caveats: The 'Inca Stones of Peru' have been shown to be hoaxes. Some of the creatures, such as dinosaurs, have markings and odd anatomy that no dinosaurs had. More than one person has admitted to hoaxing these stones. In the 'Noah's Ark' chapter, they claim there is a date (4300 years ago) for the flood. The Bible doesn't give a date and a correct understanding of Hebrew genealogies places the flood much longer ago. Nor does the Bible claim the ark landed on Mt. Ararat. It reads 'mountains of Ararat.' In spite of all the ark 'sightings' all we have are fuzzy pictures and missing or fraudulent ark fragments. For a real history of the flood, see 'The Genesis Question' (2nd ed) by Hugh Ross. The chapter on 'Impossible fossils' admits most of the items have been debunked, but only details one of the debunkings. For another example, all examinations of the 'Meister sandal print with fossils' was not a sandal print. Just wishful thinking by some unscholarly young-earth creationsists.

Was great book! The writer made it an easy read and very fun at the same time. Makes you want to hunt for mysterious lost treasures of old times. Brought to life visuals to make for great book to share with family, kids and friends..not so deep to lose interest for folks who dont want to get lost!

Interesting read. Learned about some world mysteries such as the Double Eagle Coin, Nazi gold, Soloman's Mines, Noah's Ark. My 85 year old father enjoyed it also.

its a really good book. very descriptive and it has some cool designs that make the book look kinda old, so it goes along with all the treasures

I've had so much fun reading this book. I've been on the internet researching half the stuff they talk about and loving finding out about Japan and Peru treasures. I feel like an archeologist and adventurer just knowing some of these things exist. I've had quite a bit of architecture and art history, although I'm certainly no expert, and have never heard of some of these finds.
