Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important and outstanding contribution." ---Erich von Däniken, author of Chariots of the Gods --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

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 six books, including The New Pyramid Age, and is one of the leading contributors to The History Channel's popular series, Ancient Aliens. He lives in Edinburgh and Los Angeles, California.

Erich von Daniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and most well-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. It was a worldwide best-seller and has been followed by 31 more books including the recent hit History Is Wrong (New Page Books). His works have been translated into 28 different languages and have sold a total of 63 million copies. Several of his books have also been turned into films, and Erich's ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of TV series, including the History Channel's smash hit special, "Ancient Aliens." He is an ever-present figure on the international lecture circuit. He lives in Switzerland.

I have read many books about the question of ancient aliens. The one thing this book has that the others did not, is that the author also list theories of ancient aliens that he does not believe to be true, as well as the theories he does believe are true. Then he goes on to list the reasons why he does or does not believe them to be true. I find this very refreshing. Though I've read much on this subject, the book included many things I had not read about before. It's a very interesting read, full of intelligent ideas, however you don't have to have a PHD in archeology, or astrophysics to understand it.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in this subject matter. I'm so very glad I read it!

Philip Coppens is a student of Grail lore, and as such he knows that it is the importance of the question - and never being afraid to ask it, no matter what the consequences- that defines the search for truth. And ask he does. For those familiar with the hit History Channel series, Ancient Aliens, Philip's will be a familiar name and face. With this book, The Ancient Alien Question, we finally have the opportunity to see into his research and perspectives in real depth. He has walked this path of exploration for most of his adult life, probing for answers from Giza to Cuzco and many places in between. He is a field researcher and a true investigator, and these conclusions are his own. He will undoubtedly be compared to Erich Von Daniken, who pioneered the quest to bring these questions to light and into the public awareness, and indeed Erich writes the introduction to the book. But it is clear that Philip Coppens is making his own way and his own name with his work. Some of his conclusions are perhaps surprising and controversial - Coppens doesn't accept a number of commonly held theories or beliefs about ancient aliens. Although his ultimate answer to the question is YES, it is clear that Coppens approaches his subject as neither a believer nor a skeptic, but as a true seeker of the truth.

Keep asking those questions, and keep searching for your own answers - but as you search, this is a great guidebook to assist you in your exploration. And as an added bonus, it's beautiful to look at in terms of the interior page design, making it even more of a pleasure to read.

I just finished reading 'Ancient Alien Question' and it's a good read. Mr. Coppens gives both sides of a theory and asks all the right questions.... If you love the TV show 'Ancient Aliens' on the History Channel....you will appreciate this fine book.

This is a wonderful book to give your friends who question what you believe because it has all the major theories in one book in an easy to understand read. Instead of trying to tell someone about the Roman stones in Baalbek or in Inca Cuzco....just have them read this book. It explains it much better than you probably can....

The Dropa disks, the Goldflyer, the Chief Fetish, Oannes and crystal skulls ....all in here...plus more~~

I read 'Chariots of the Gods' in 1974 and it opened my mind to the possibility that the world history is not what we think. Mr. Coppens, your new Book has opened up my mind even further and I know that we have had guidance in our civilization/development. Thank you for putting it all together in one book.

Philip Coppens' book is a fascinating and mind-boggling overview and critique of some of the more impressive "evidence" that suggests the impact and influence of ancient aliens on mankind's history. The author sagely doesn't buy into everything and anything involved in the debate and therefore doesn't offer his readers both baby and a tub of bathwater. Given such a fantastic premise to play with, many an author under the influence of P.T. Barnum runs with any premise - no matter how absurd or easily disproven - just so long as there is a profit to be had after their published "product" makes it to Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Philip Coppens is discerning and level-headed in his approach to mankind's mysteries. He pans the famous Nazca lines, discounting the popular conception that they are the markings for an ancient airport. He also downplays E.T. participation (at least of an active sort) in the actual construction of the Egyptian Giza complex. One might disagree with his conclusions - but in lending credence to the ordinary explanations first (where warranted) without a rushing recourse to the truly extraordinary, Mr. Coppens does his readership a vast service. He truly does a wonderful job of separating the wheat from the chaff. Carefully weighing the pros and cons, his prime argument and agenda are more aimed at one's keeping an open mind rather than providing definitive conclusions with regards to the central thesis of this book. An open mind is, afterall, a prime requirement in a Universe where growth and evolution seem to form the foundation of its major laws.

This book is, as I've said, an excellent introduction to learning more with regards to one of the profoundest mysteries in human history: are we alone in life's classroom - or are there teachers to guide us?
