"...this is really one interesting book....a very intriguing topic." (Morgaine, Circle of Stones, July, 2004)
"An epic tale of gods and men . . . challenging every assumption we hold about our past and future." (Branches of Light, Issue 30)
"The story is compelling, drawing readers into the world of extraterrestrials, gods, and ancient events in a way that seems a combination of reading that daily paper and indulging in popular fiction. Reading The Lost Book of Enki is a truly unique, intellectual, and pleasurable experience to recommend to customers looking for something a little different." (R. John Allcorn, New Age Retailer, March/April 2002)
"This book is another brilliant example of Sitchin's scholarship. I found it exciting reading, and give it my highest recommendation. The Lost Book of Enki . . . has an impact that will generate discussions all over the globe." (Don Ecker, UFO Magazine, April-May 2002)
From the Back Cover
FICTION / MYTHOLOGY
Will the past become our future? Is humankind destined to repeat the events that occurred on another planet, far away from Earth? Zecharia Sitchin’s bestselling series, The Earth Chronicles, provided humanity’s side of the story--as recorded on ancient clay tablets and other Sumerian artifacts--concerning our origins at the hands of the Anunnaki, “those who from heaven to earth came.” In The Lost Book of Enki, we can view this saga from a different perspective through this richly conceived autobiographical account of Lord Enki, an Anunnaki god, who tells the story of these extraterrestrials’ arrival on Earth from the 12th planet, Nibiru. The object of their colonization: gold to replenish the dying atmosphere of their home planet. Finding this precious metal results in the Anunnaki creation of homo sapiens--the human race--to mine this important resource.
In his previous works, Sitchin compiled the complete story of the Anunnaki’s impact on human civilization in peacetime and in war from the fragments scattered throughout Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Hittite, Egyptian, Canaanite, and Hebrew sources--the “myths” of all ancient peoples in the old world as well as the new. Missing from these accounts, however, was the perspective of the Anunnaki themselves. What was life like on their own planet? What motives propelled them to settle on Earth--and what drove them from their new home? Convinced of the existence of a now lost book that formed the basis of ancient Sumerian texts holding the answers to these questions, the author began his search for evidence. Through exhaustive research of primary sources, he has here re-created tales as the memoirs of Enki, the leader of these first “astronauts.” What takes shape is the story of a world of mounting tensions, deep rivalries, and sophisticated scientific knowledge that is only today being confirmed. An epic tale of gods and men unfolds, challenging every assumption we hold about our creation, our past, and our future.
An eminent Orientalist and Biblical scholar, ZECHARIA SITCHIN (1920-2010) was distinguished by his ability to translate ancient Sumerian and other ancient texts. He was a graduate of the University of London and worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years before making his home in New York City.

The introduction to the book is well worth the price of the book in itself!
This rendering of the tale of the Anunnaki stay on earth goes far beyond the simplistic branding of bad (Enlil) versus good (Enki). Maybe Sitchin gives these "gods" too much "humanity" given the ruthlessness of Anunnaki behavior here. On the other hand, the complexity of the questions and problems they faced merits more than a shallow, single sided view. And certainly the story must go beyond dry scholarly translations.
This is the epic story of humankind's origins. Even if not yet entirely complete, it more satisfactorily answers so many unanswered questions as to who we are, why we worship "gods" and why we have royalty today than any other story I've come across.
For those who criticize Sitchin's work as being inaccurately translated from the tablets, let them publish their story of what they think the tablets say. Sitchin has put his work thoroughly on display. His is a coherent rendition. It serves to enlighten us to our origins. What do the critics have to offer?
Buy the book. Read this epic tale and let it move you to deeply ponder what it means to you as a human being.
HIGHLY reccomended if you want the truth of our civilization and planetary history, as well as confirmation of where modern religion came from, and doubtless evidence that modern religion is all a crock of $#!+ and hogwash that was simmered for the last 3 centuries, and finally put on boil. Don't believe me?
Read the 12th planet by the very same former CIA author and follow it up with this book. If you still haven't read enough, check out the end times book as well as the rest of sitchin's work.
These/this book(s) are/is guaranteed to change how you see your world!
Grateful for the glossary in the back as it sure helped to keep people and places straight. Important to know that this is a fairly literate translation. Verbs, adverbs etc are not as they are in the English language. It takes some getting use to. It may help to have read another Annunaki book before tackling this one.
