Description

The concluding volume of the Fingerprints of the Gods trilogy. 

Could shattering secrets about the deep past of humanity await discovery in North America? 

Until very recently there was almost universal agreement amongst scientists that human beings first entered the Americas from Siberia around 13,000 years ago by walking into Alaska across the Bering landbridge. 

Thanks to scientific advances, and to archaeological and geological discoveries made in the past five years, we now know that the Americas were populated by humans for tens of thousands of years before the previously accepted date. Deeply puzzling and hitherto unsuspected genetic connections have also emerged - for example linking Native Americans both with Australian Aborigines and with Western Europeans. 

In the final volume of The Fingerprints of the Gods trilogy he puts the final piece of the jigsaw in place, proving that the great, technically advanced civilisation that flourished in Britain and Europe and throughout the world before the last Ice Age was centred in Northern America.

History of the Americas is now extremely exciting!

I was in grade school in Canada in the eighties and although I always liked history I found the history of Americas to be quite boring and dull. Maybe it was intentionally taught that way to avoid drawing attention to the real story and the uncomfortable truths about the atrocities of European settlements. After listening to America Before I now want to know everything I can about it and I really hope new technology will speed the discovery of the forgotten past.

Makes you think

I was introduced to Graham Handcock and his studies from the Joe Rogan Podcast. I am intrigued by his studies and how recent discoveries make us change our thinking of the origins and history of life.

Fascinating book

Information was presented in a clear and logical way. Author drew on scientific journals and field work. I really enjoyed his previous work Fingerprint of the Gods. This book did not disappoint. The last three chapters could have been condensed as he strays away from fact to opinion.

Ground Breaking

Amazing book with so much information about our past that leads to more questions and mystery.

Stong passion, needs more evidence.

Hancock's performance in this book is amazing. His passion and his ideas really shine through and you can hear it in his voice. however. on many occasions Hancock reverts to say ' I have covered this in another books' or ' you see these types of evidences in other people's work'. I don't know if he included a lot of graphs or appendices or charts in the physical book however the audiobook does not give the listener enough scientific evidence to go over while listening to the audio book. the geological features and astrological impactors that have affected the Earth are all very real and accounted for by scientists working in their own fields.

It was underwhelming

Not much here. No real ground breakers or interesting thoughts. In the later half of the book the typical whining and lamenting about European conquest is repeated constantly. His other books were better.

Another Classic from Graham Hancock

Insightful and delightful to listen to. This history of America should be thought in high schools!

If you're Native American, you owe it to yourself.

This Research will change the world, to something better. I have to put extra words in

Captivating

I was able to follow with ease and found the content to be fascinating. Open your heart and mind without prejudice so that you can take it all in. Also, the narration makes it an easy listening experience. Graham definitely has a voice in every sense of the word.

Impressive work as ever

Stuff just keeps on getting older. GH presents a thorough and convincing case (again) that our prehistory is far more interesting than academia maintains. Exciting stuff. Not sure why main stream fields (seems particularly bad with archeology) is so closed off to the evidence and ideas GH brings. It would surely revive and rejuvenate the discipline is the evidence were explored with an open scientific outlook. Keep on pushing GH, it takes brave outsiders like yourself to advance the feild for the good of all. Thank you

Graham has finally lost it, deluded beyond belief

Seriously flawed. Megalithic knowledge lacking. Grandiose overly descriptive babble more like fiction. Conference days over.

It's quite alright

I really loved Magicians but if I want to be honest, this one, elaborating on the same thesis and bringing additional evidence, kinda bored me at certain points. Although I listened to it in 2-3 days so it was a marathon, I still felt like, while convincing, it was a bit less thrilling than the previous book. But then again, it might be simply because I was already familiar with the basic idea, and that's why it kind of felt like reading an 'additional and slightly less interesting evidences' appendix to the previous books of the series. Mounds, after all, are much less interesting than Göbekli Tepe and the first time reading about the Younger Drias comet impact. I'm sure I'll listen to it again though.

Intriguing, Good Story, Great Naration

I have been following Graham Hancock works; books, videos, and talks or interviews, since I read Fingerprints Of The Gods In 2006. Since then I have bought and read almost all of his books. But this is the first time I listened to his audiobook. When this book first published, I decided to buy both Hardcopy and the Audiobook and immediately started to listen to it. It is amazing to hear his voice reading his own book with the intonation so perfect which I think how he wanted this book to be read (at least this is my opinion). It was also incredible the way the story was written, told and moreover read, making it a very enjoyable book to listen. This book, as many other Graham Hancock’s books, is very well researched, organized and written with beautiful story lines, conversations, descriptions and depictions. Graham surely took my mind to many places as I could imagine to be and to see with my own eyes what he was describing. The subject of this book is very intriguing and highly recommended (by me) if you are into pre-historical subject of humankind and have much interest and open to the ideas beyond the border of main-stream science. Great book!

Could have and should have been shorter

The concept and information was great. But I wasn't enjoyable to hear 17 hours of it. If it were condensed to half the length, it would have been a great book.

Pure truth

I was hoping that it would keep on going, allways great to hear graham ripping the truth of the world open in a raw but polite way. I know his previous work but I have to start all over again

Can I get my money back?

Let me preface this by saying I own two of the author's previous works from the "Gods" series, which I enjoyed and found myself to be in alignment with for the most part. Having said that, I don't feel like I can give this a full and honest review without sounding like nothing more than a complete troll and a raging hater. If you must investigate this book, borrow it before you spend the money to add it to your permanent library.
