While the book had some notable data to glean, it still falls really short given that many of the essays are weren’t as in-depth as they could have been, and the other essays do not push the envelope and play it safe. A few were downright boring, and that’s not said lightly. That’s actually sad considering the field of ancient civilizations et al is oft-riddled with mystery.

There were a few noteworthy essays though. Predictably these are from Marrs, Frank Joseph and Redfern.

In a field where imagination and possibilities abound given how much isn’t known, this book felt rather run of the mill even for alternative research.

There is quite a bit of data to glean , it just depends on how much research someone has undertaken.

The book features information on Secret Societies, ‘Monsters’, Atlantis, Ancient Cosmologies, Giants in History, Ancient Astronaut Theory and much more.

Once one views those topics above, one would imagine that this book would be absolute dynamite. And it could have been, but unfortunately it was quite lackluster.

If you are interested in any of the above topics, then would suggest researching any of the above topics in depth in individual books focusing on the specific subjects as much more information will be gathered/learned that way rather than giving them a cursory glance within this book. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Are there 10,000-year-old secret societies that still exist today? Was there a race of giants that once inhabited the Americas? Did ancient Egypt and ancient China have heretofore undiscovered ties? Lost Secrets of the Gods delves into these ancient mysteries and many more in articles by some of the world's most intrepid and knowledgeable researchers. The old paradigms of history are being radically transformed as we discover more evidence of little-known cultures and what they achieved. Many ancient cultures spoke and wrote of visitors that gave them knowledge and helped shape their societies. Who were they, and where did they come from? We now know that many ancient cultures had advanced knowledge of science, agriculture, and astronomy, only some of which has been rediscovered in the last 100 years. Were The Iliad and The Odyssey really about an epic struggle in pre-Celtic Europe? What happened to the Persian army that completely disappeared from Egypt 2,500 years ago? Did the ancients know how to create psychic guard dogs to protect sacred sites? There is much more to history than what has officially been recorded. Lost Secrets of the Gods reveals startling truths and asks fascinating questions traditional historians have long ignored"--… (more)
