This is the first book I've read on the subject of Atlantis, and I found it quite interesting indeed!

Because I am not sure about my thoughts re: aliens being behind the amazing achievments attributed to this "lost civilization", I was happy to find that the author does not dwell on this possibility (although it's clear that she does believe in the theory of aliens bringing their technological info. to several areas during the time of Atlantis). Instead, the idea of aliens is brought up only briefly, and then scattered here & there throughout the book - but not in an overbearing sort of way.

I read this book at the same time as "Finger-Prints of the Gods", by Graham Hancock (In fact, I am still finishing up reading "Fingerprints"), and I found that these books tend to complement eachother. The one main difference being that Graham Hancock takes the reader on a journey with him to places where there is still evidence that such amazingly brilliant cultures existed in our far-reaching past. Also, I have not yet come across any mention of aliens in his book (although I haven't completed it yet).

I would recommend this book, as well as "Fingerprints of the Gods", to anyone interested in this subject. Both of these books have a lot to offer and, in the end, will make the reader think about the various possibilities, and come up with their own theories. In my view, this is what a good book does - encourages the reader to really think about things both as they were, and as they currently are. And both of these books "fit the bill".

First of all, let me state this was a wonderful, insightful, and very easy book to read. Amen! Shirley Andrews has done a really excellent job of stating her hypothesis of Atlantis, then proceeded to lay out anthropological findings to support her views. The book read like a light history book of man and his evolution (and de-evolution) on a planet called Earth. Ms. Andrews painstaking research is explained and laid out for our analysis in a pleasingly down to earth format. I got through this book faster than most others.
The four maps detailing how the land masses appeared at 50K bc, 25K bc, 10K bc and currently really set the stage for easy comprehension of the facts she was about to lay on us. The analogy of Noah's flood ending the third world and bringing about this, the fourth world was very thought provoking. The comparison of how the Atlantians survived and escaped two previous disasters and how their influence, society, and technology lived on and has become apparent in other prehistoric cultures is just amazing. To me now, its not a matter of "did Atlantis exist?", its a matter of how we, as contemporary man, can learn from the positives and negatives of our human ancestors. Its maybe a gauge as to how our evolution can handle these precedences.

Format: Paperback
If you have ever been captivated in any way by the myth of"the lost continent of Atlantis," here is your chance tosatisfy your curiosity. Indeed, after reading this book, you will come to realize what most scholars of classical antiquity take as second nature: it is a very gray area between where ancient mythology ends and ancient history begins. Reading this book brings the "myth" of Atlantis ever so much closer to us out of the mythology of the far past up into the ancient history of the near past. It is the wonderful work and lifelong dedication of Shirley Andrews that has done this for us. This book is, truly, "a labor of love."
As some of you read this book, you may begin by thinking to yourself, "Well, this is going to be a fun read, but I seriously doubt that I am going to end up believing in the reality of any lost continent of Atlantis!" When you are through reading the book (and you WILL finish reading the whole thing!), you will find yourself wanting to not only read more about Atlantis, but wanting to go on any number of excursions to many of the places where Ms. Andrews herself has gone to personally do firsthand, primary research for this book.
I, myself, am tempted to take a trip to the Canary Islands to see for myself all of the evidence that the author has generously shared with us all. ... At one time in my life, I, too, merely thought of Atlantis as that great song by Donovan that used to make the hairs stand up all over my body every time I heard it come on the radio. After reading this book, the myth of Atlantis has become a reality for me. See if it does the same for you.

A MUST READ for all who are intrigued by the legendary lost continent of Atlantis! This is a book you will enjoy reading and will want to share with your friends. Shirley Andrews has brought together an extraordinary body of supportive information to lift our thoughts beyond myth to the real possibility that Atlantis existed! This book is thoroughly researched and presents many points of view from the scientific to the metaphysical. Atlantis comes to life through the clear and skillful writing of Ms. Andrews. You will easily imagine this beautiful continent and learn of its great history, advanced culture and the high evolution of its people. You'll learn of their customs and beliefs, their entertainment, education, government, religion, aviation, medicine, energy and more. You will gain insight into the location of Atlantis, what problems befell it and what caused its ultimate demise. Even the most skeptical reader will have to reflect on this great body of exciting and convincing evidence. This is truly an exceptional book!
