Format: Paperback
The author presents an interest concept of his own family "discovering" America. The story gets a bit thin as he does not go into depth with the most important proofs, while he spends much more time creating a history of the Grail and the Templars. For the real story of Antonio and Nicolo Zeno story and the 1398 expedition there are better books to read. Sinclair somehow decided the Doge of Venice and the family Zeno should not have an "O" after their name. Once making this error - he sticks to it despite the fact that no one else has ever spelled it as ZEN. Leading this reader to wonder if a fact checker might have helped.

It's no big surprise that what we learn in public schools & history books is full of lies, deceipt and falsehood. This is a great book that will Illuminate the authentic origins of the U.S.A and the real Spiritual Doctrines upon which christianity has tried for the last 1000 years or more, to hide from us. So, if you want the Real Deal, I highly recommend this reading for any serious seeker of hidden truth kept from the general population for too long.

Format: Paperback
Uncritical, inaccurate, unreferenced and incredible - and that, believe me, is a flattering review compared with what I might have said. A combination of fantastic ignorance - of language, of literature and of history - combined with deliberate distortion makes for an acute attack of mental indigestion.

Buy it, read it, have a good laugh, donate it to Oxfam. That way it will at least do somebody some good, even if you end up in the funny farm, probably in the padded cell next door to the author's.
