A must read for all

Inspired and well delivered, this book is a must read for anyone interested in humanity's history. Academics are all too often detracting from real investigative archeology and Hancock's Fingerprints of the Gods is a well crafted push-back.

Fascinating exploration of an incredible idea

I was hooked in the first chapters but grew sceptical of the authors methods as the book goes on. Ultimately I was glad I stuck with it to the end. He does eventually lay out his full hypothesis. Only problem with the book is some of the numbers and math is hard to follow in audiobook form.

A teuly engaging and captivating read

Hancock has pieced together the histories and the stories of our past to help us see the earning that our ancestors left us for our future.

I listened to some sections multiple times because they were so intriguing and confounding. A great read if your interested in Ancient Egypt, the Incas, Mayas or Aztecs, are interested in Ancient Geology, and are curious as to what exactly lies beneath the ice in Antarctica. He definitely convinced me of our pre-history Advanced Civilization fore-fathers.
An amazing read!

Eye opening and brilliantly mysterious

In an age where we think we know everything, I'm happy to know there are still such marvelous mysteries left to uncover on this planet.
Thank you Graham for your years of dedicated research on the origins of our modern civilization

Don't be afraid to question, to say, "What if?"

It is a worthwhile exercise to question your beliefs and periodically reexamine your preconceptions. This book shines a light on the limitations of our blind faith in academic perspectives and the limitations inherent within such a stance.
I really enjoyed it. Thank you.

mind blowing!

A foundational, must-read work for all those interested in the origins of civilization, human pre-history, and the human experience as a whole. the well researched theories that Graham Hancock proposes as well as the countless questions he raises through his extensive worldwide research are deeply fascinating and moving, and deserving of a thorough hearing and continued exploration. If you are intrigued by human existance, ancient civilization, megalithic monuments, geology, or the night sky, you will not be disappointed!

Best Book Ever

Finally finished it.. I'm not very good at reading, I don't give myself time to do it but with the audiobook was very easy for me. Loved it. I would recommend to everyone who wants to open his/her mind to a different reality, different history. Understanding it will give you enough arguments to feel you finally understand the world and civilizations.

Valuable coverage of ancient earth human history

Graham Hancock did a wonderful job narrating his 1995 book Fingerprint of the Gods. I started this series with book 2, Magicians of the Gods, 2015, and it is interesting to see how much fine tuning Graham Hancock did in the 20 year span between the two related books. And, they are two entirely different books, with Magicians of the Gods focusing on a very significant geological event and its effect on humans and human's knowledge of their own history. Fingerprints of the Gods is an excellent introduction and foundation into the research going beyond the public narrative of mainstream academia and what is taught in public schools. Humanity's history, and earth's history is far more interesting than what is taught.

This book was pretty serious in parts, and I had to divert to a couple of other books in the meantime before returning to complete it. I've mulled over what I have learned in this book, and see how it fit with the two David Wilcock books read in the meantime. There is so much connection between their work - both authors are "big picture" oriented. David Wilcock even refers to Graham Hancock's work within his books too.

The third book of this trilogy will be coming later this year (2016) and I am looking forward to reading (listening) to that.

Good but verbose

An enthralling book, but Graham ventures too far into speculation. Nonetheless, the consolidation of so many verified scientific facts does well for the mind to conceive of new possibilities for the past and the future. At times the argument devolves into what fits Graham's theory and not what is most likely, or he will take inconclusive data and draw a conclusion based on his "intuition." Still, a worthwhile prequel to Magicians of the Gods.

excellent research

I found that Hancock did very well at citing his references for the work he borrowed from other researchers. The book was refreshing to hear there may be insights to ancient histories that our society is unaware of. Keep up the great work.

Excellent information well delivered.

Great presentation on theories of origins of various prehistoric structures. The pyramids of Egypt, Cities of South and Central America and other sites are discussed and similarities in legends from geographically diverse populations are presented.

Acutely interesting ...

If you like the wonderment of ancient history and simultaneously dislike the way those who are “in charge” dictate what is and isn’t fact, then you will love this read. I was constantly rewinding so that the incredible evidence this author presents would finally sink into my head. Sometimes it took 3 or 5 or 10 times. Just be prepared that none of this will ever be proven. Just as the established “facts” of ancient history will also never be proven. But it’s cool to think about it =O]

Light is back!

This is all what I was looking for! Thank you Sir Hancock, this is a Masterpiece ! Piece by piece, everything make sens and we can feel the light on our shoulder warming back again our consciousness on our lost great History. Gathering all these valuable, priceless I should say, clues, from all over, and displaying the best overview I ever heard is just magic and vibrating to the point I feel deeply tuned and deeply thankful. I feel able to follow the tracks now with more confidence. Deep thanks for your time, effort and sens of responsibility. This is true work and skill. Thank you for sharing that. Thank you
