Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Erich von Däniken's 1968 Chariots of the Gods put him on the map as "the father of ancient astronauts." Many experts disputed the Swiss author's claims about aliens, but no one could doubt the popularity of his theories: More than sixty million copies of his new age books have sold. Now this never timid writer argues that what we know as Greek myths were actually accounts of real extraterrestrial beings; that Greek "gods" were in fact visitors, not always friendly, from other solar systems. Odyssey of the Gods contains startling new explanations of this pivotal epoch in human history. A radical new view of Zeus and company.

Erich von Däniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and most well-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. It was a worldwide bestseller and has been followed by 31 more books, including the recent best-sellers Twilight of the Gods and History Is Wrong (both published by New Page Books). His works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 63 million copies. Several have also been made into films. Erich's ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of TV series, including the History Channel's hit Ancient Aliens. Erich lives in Switzerland but is an ever present figure on the international lecture circuit.

    I disagree

    It is an awesome book that explores the idea that the greek gods were aliens. I have read it several times and it always satisfies.

    Don't buy

    Boring book. Not even close to being worth the money.

    Classic 'Daniken

    An interesting read. Facts and style are in normal Von Daniken form. An interesting topic he hasn't written about in detail before; a pleasure to add to my collection of his previous books.
