About the Author

Philip Coppens is an internationally renowned investigative journalist, author, and regular contributor to magazines such as Atlantis Rising and NEXUS Magazine. He is labeled a skeptic by the believers, and a believer by the skeptics--a unique position which makes him a well-recognized voice of reason. He is the author of 11 books, including The Ancient Alien Question and The Lost Civilization Enigma, and is one of the leading contributors to The History Channel's popular series, Ancient Aliens. He lives in Edinburgh and Los Angeles.

Erich von Däniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and best-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. The worldwide best seller was followed by 40 more books, including the recent best sellers Twilight of the Gods, History Is Wrong, Evidence of the Gods, Remnants of the Gods, and Odyssey of the Gods (all published by New Page Books). His works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 65 million copies. Several have also been made into films. Von Däniken's ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of television series, including the History Channel's hit Ancient Aliens. His research organization, the A.A.S.R.A./ (Archaeology, Astronautics & SETI Research Association), comprises laymen and academics from all walks of life. Internationally, there are about 10,000 members. He lives in Switzerland but is an ever-present figure on the international lecture circuit, traveling more than 100,000 miles a year.

I cannot speak highly enough about this book. Not only is it well thought out and well written, it also brings to life solid, factual proof that I have never even heard of before. This is a must read for anyone who is curious about the idea of ancient aliens.

I've read a few books on this particular topic as well as watched the History Channel Show. I thought I knew where the author was going to go with this book, but I was wrong. Unexpectedly the author shows how some past theories held high by the Ancient Alien community are in fact false. He also puts forth new ideas and questions that were previously unknown to me. Overall it's a great read with a lot of very well researched facts and ideas.

So far as I have been reading this book, it has been everything I have seen the author talk about when he is on the tv show Ancient Aliens. I also like the fact he credits others in the beginning of the book, like Eric Dankin and Micau Kaku for their research and input. A very good read.

Very well written. If you read this book and it gives you the desire to research, explore and discover for yourself, whether actually visiting places like Puma Punku, ETC - or pursuing your quest for knowledge from the comfort of your own home, then kudo's to Philiip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Being a big fan of the Ancient Aliens television show, this book really interested me. I couldn't put it down. Coppens' writing style flows well, and the information is presented in an unbiased way. The only thing bad about this book is it ended! I wanted more.

There are two sides to every story. I sure enjoyed this side of the story and it left me wanting to learn more. Fast paced and gives you a ton of things to consider. May offend the devoted religious type but evidence is really there. Good stuff.

I heard Philip Coppens for the first time on Ancient Aliens. I heard him interviewed on "The Paranormal Podcast" and I just had to get this book. A very compelling read; the arguments are well researched and although the prose is sometimes a little scattered - this material really hits hard.

What I liked about the late Philip Coppens was that he was able to see all sides of things. This book is a great primer to start with in exploring the ancient alien ides even if you never watched the series. There are a lot of things that have serious questions (and I'm not just talking about the age of the sphinx) and Coppens isn't afraid to say why he thinks aliens may or may not have been involved. The very fact that he is willing to explore other answers is precisely what makes his questions seem more important. There are indeed many more things in heaven and earth than we have ever dreamed in our philosophies.
