This book contends that human prints have been found dating to 500 MILLION years ago. So what happened between 500 Million years ago and 6,000 years ago? one of the premises of the book is that since the events in between did not conform to accepted theory at the time, any evidence, theory or explanation was simply discarded. From my personal experience, this I believe to be true, I have seen this phenomenon, this seems to be part of human nature -specially in science, take medicine as just one glaring example.
The book's intent is to simply open your eyes by making you aware of evidence of Humans' presence in this planet for many millions of years. It does not seek to present an explanation or to formulate a theory. It just provides you the evidence that has existed for hundreds of years which has been ignored on purpose since it did not fit (and still does not) with the current theories of Human Evolution.
If you are not familiar with these theories, then the book will be an easy, comfortable and wondrous adventure. If you are, then it will be a shock, a serious source of upset since it will unbalance, shake and possibly destroy the so-called science you have been indoctrinated into believing.
In the end, you must be your own judge -as in everything in life, to me however, the book provides another layer of revelation out of the matrix in which we are brainwashed.
Lastly, anyone can read this book, you don't have to be a scientist. The book is written in plain easy to understand language and makes a serious effort to be digestible by anyone.
The book is rather dry for most of it - if you were expecting anything to do with "Ancient Astronaut" theories or alien hybrids, this is not the book for you - and for that I give it credit. It is a scholarly work and not a flimsy Chariots of the Gods type sensationalist work.
The closest it comes is exploring the possibility that bigfoot and such could be isolated populations of leftover hominids - just one chapter and nothing outlandish.
All in all, highly recommended reading for those interested in human evolution and archaeology, and the upside of that is that it is not concocted based on flimsy speculation, but hand in hand with that, it is not a page-turner by any means
Mr. Cremo makes it almost impossible for critics, no matter how educated or esteemed, to dismiss his findings without looking like a fringe lunitic themselves.
This book is full of facts, and is backed up with plenty of source material. You simply cannot argue with it. I had a chance to glance at the original book this is condensed from, "Forbidden Archaeoogy". That book reads like a text book. It is filled with case studies, indepth explainations of findings and the circunstances surrounding them. Hidden History is simply that book but condensed down for those of us who cannot get through the 900 page original.
After reading this book, even if you still do not realize that archaeology is barely a science at all and is based on a few bones and some guesswork most of the time, you still will wonder exactly how the time tables of human evolution, both physical and social, can be what they are, the evidence otherwise is overwhelming . I recommend this book mostly to the hard and fast skeptic since I think it might be a mind changer. You certainly cannot deny the science, proof and research behind Cremo's ideas and facts. There is no "belief" here, as in ghosts and UFOs, this is science and whether or not the scientif ic community chooses to officially recognize this does not change the facts. Read the book. It will open your eyes not only to the subject matter, but to how science is now a political field and boarders on fanatical at times.
