About the Author


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./legendarytimes.com (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.

What a wonderful follow up to Chariots of the Gods! Eric gives more revealing discussion on what has been found since his last book and also offers more intriguing hypotheses! Eric is searching for the answers in the ancient texts and discusses what is revealed about man's true history. Answers many questions for the person seeking truth and gives the reader much to think about. I'm looking forward to his next book!

What a mess. A rambling diatribe that where the author whines about how badly he's been mistreated. Any interesting information in this book could be covered in 10 pages. Instead, you get a rambling whine session.

History Is Wrong was the third book of von Daniken I have read (Chariots of the Gods & Twilight of the Gods). The material was very well researched as anyone familiar with Mr. von Daniken's works can testify - the man does his homework. I am truly inspied by the author's abilities to debunk the once reverently held historical "facts" by his references to the carefully presented new information. These giant bits of information most adequately presented by Erick von Daniken has invoked ideas in me that now shatter my many mysterious, once held beliefs. My knowledge of Archaeology, Astronautics, Geological discoveries, Historical evidence, and the early use of scientific materials has hyper jumped my mind since reading this author's works, especially History Is Wrong. This book resolved many questions, the most prevelant of which was: How could anyone dispute the overwhelming evidence brought before us by this man's careful and methodical remapping of history's truths. Taking into careful consideration all that von Daniken's book has enlightened me about, I set out on a journalistic quest to read what other authors have had to say about our once factual history involving mankind and the developement of our lost civilizations.

about a year ago I decided to get 'Chariots of the Gods' and I really like it, specially since it was written so long ago, being a Sitchin fan for a while I kind of needed a different take on things, so when I saw at the stores the new Erich book, I went straight home to devour it... I was so dissapointed, He spends most of this book defending himself about...whatever...I'd like my money back ! a much better book is 'Slave species of god'

I loved the topics in this book. They really made me think about things and what I was taught in school. Although the topics and information were profound, the organization of the thoughts in the book were a bit jumpy. It was like the writer had A.D. D. He couldn't start and finisha topic and jumped around a lot. Still an incredible read.

I've been a fan of Von Daniken for quite some time and I've enjoyed his intriquing ideas about astronaut theory... Like Chariots of the Gods and The Gods Were Astronauts... those are pretty cool. However, I didn't really get into History Is Wrong. It starts out interesting about the ellusive Metal Library that is said to exist in a cave. This part is pretty convincing, but soon after there are pages and pages of "Debunking the Debunkers" where Von Daniken redundantly explains how his critics have always been after him and how unfair it's all been. Frankly, his tattletailing on his foes, is not what I bought the book for. It kind of redeems itself at the end by talking about the mysterious Nazca Lines of Peru... but then again if you've read his other books, it's been said and done. I'd like to learn more of this metal library filled with writing and unexplicable artifacts, but his obvious anger towards the media got out of hand in the book.

Erich von Danniken has written many books on this subject and, he is beginning to repeat himself. Not much new here for those of us who have read his previous works. Von Danniken does stay true to his beliefs, though I question his methodology on collecting data and evidence. I do recommend this book and others like it to kick start thoughtful discussions. My family is still debating some of the "facts" Von Danniken presents so it does have educational value.
