Editorial Reviews

Review

"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)

"...this is really one interesting book....a very intriguing topic." (Morgaine, Circle of Stones, July, 2004)

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.

There are few true geniuses writing books we can understand and only one writing about a subject so vitally important to every human being, i.e., we cannot know where we are going if we do not know where we have come from. Now, thanks to a lifetime of dedication worthy of the greatest researchers and detectives of all time, all of Zecharia Sitchin's books and especially "The Lost Book of Enki," are available to provide plausable answers to the hundreds of questions traditional "science" and "archaeology" and biblical "scholars" cannot or refuse to answer at all, let alone satisfactorily.
I think I understand why some of his fans are having trouble with "The Lost Book of Enki." They think they understand his work to the point where having it all presented in one book, and in a mytho-poetic style, no less, seems to be a rehash of what they've read. Well, they may be geniuses, themselves, because I've read all of the books twice and am one of about two dozen alumni of all of Zecharia's far flung teaching intensives, and yet I feel that I needed to read "The Lost Book of Enki" to really have a good grasp of the material and to feel it "breathe," to be mytho-poetic, myself. What a thrill to finally understand the actual basis for the seemingly ungrounded words, themes, and stories of the bible. There are also a few facts mentioned in passing that should have blown the mind of anyone who has read all the books. It should be realized that NO ONE knows Zecharia's work the way he knows it and anyone who knows him realizes what a gift this book is to the many people who have literally begged him to put it all together in one book.

So, you think Zach Sitchin is a nut, someone who lacks extensive 'Oliver Sach's' type footnotes to back up his references, and hey - anyone talking about life on other planets must be crazy...right?
I went as far as to start reading the 'official' scholarly translations of the Epic of Gilgamesh, The Lament of Ur, and 'The Descent of Ishtar' and frighteningly, nearly to a few key words, Sitchen's translations of the Sumerian tablets ARE accurate!
In a nutshell: over 14 or so tablet translations, the God Enki scribes his story of how Earth began. He landed searching for the Gold that Alalu first described, set up the ERIDU base and the E.DIN (like garden of), and began mining gold for Nibiru. Nibiru, our 10th planet, which crosses every 3600 yrs. The last time it crossed, Thera in Santorini blew up magnificently, and many earth changes occured as recorded in antarctic ice cores (looks this up at the usgs.gov site). Sitchen has created a riviting story, at times quite moving, of how Enki and his fellow 50 gods, set up camp on Earth and created mankind. How exactly did the Sumerians know there were "23 branches of life" (chromosomes), with a missing 24th coding for "long life"?? How did the Sumerians know, 4500 b.c., that there were '12' planets (including the sun, moon, and the 10th planet - Nibiru) when Pluto even was not discovered until 1930 by Clyde W. Tombaugh?

The biblical parallels are truly amazing considering these were written 4500 B.C.!

As a Zecharia Sitchin fan I have read and own all his books. I wait with anticipation for a new one. As an avid reader I am constantly searching for 'the rest of the story'. Finally my numerous questions on the Bible, Egypt, South America and the Native American Myths are being answered. Zecharia Sitchin does not sway you to believe anything, he just presents the facts as written in ancient texts and it is up to you to sort it out and to draw your own conclusions. Personally, if I had to keep just one authors books, I would keep Zecharia Sitchin's. His books are loaded with aha's.

Where did we come from? How long ago? This book is a good start to answering some of those questions. It makes me wonder why archaeology hides what goes against the current view instead of giving us all the information and letting us decide for ourselves. If you read this book with an open mind you will come away with much knowledge. As with anything take what vibrates with you and leave the rest. That doesn't mean it's not right but not right for you at the moment. Do I agree with everything Sitchin has translated - No, but never say never as I have had to eat those words along my journey. If you don't buy into the main stream view of how we got here and how long we have been here you will really enjoy this book.

Sitchin only goes back into time approximately 450,000 years. If you want to go back even further I suggest you read A Master's Reflection on the History of Humanity, Part I: Human Civilization, Origins and Evolution by Ramtha. Be prepared to have your mind expanded and answers to questions such as Who are we? Where did we come from? Why are we here? If you saw the movie "What the Bleep" you will love this book. Knowledge is power!
