    Description

    The Sunday Times top 10 best seller

    Was an advanced civilisation lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally best-selling author, has made it his life's work to find out - and in America Before, he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.

    We've been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago - amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long-established picture and we know now that the Americas were first peopled more than 130,000 years ago - many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere.

    Hancock's research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon Rainforest, he reveals that ancient 'New World' cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected 'Old World' cultures. Have archaeologists focused for too long only on the 'Old World' in their search for the origins of civilisation while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the 'New World'?

    America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilisation is the culmination of everything that millions of people have loved in Hancock's body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.

    "Hancock's books provide a fascinating, alternative version of prehistory. America Before, detailed and wide-ranging, turns what was myth and legend into a new story of the past." (Daily Mail

    Impressive work as ever

    Stuff just keeps on getting older.
    GH presents a thorough and convincing case (again) that our prehistory is far more interesting than academia maintains. Exciting stuff.

    Not sure why main stream fields (seems particularly bad with archeology) is so closed off to the evidence and ideas GH brings. It would surely revive and rejuvenate the discipline is the evidence were explored with an open scientific outlook.

    Keep on pushing GH, it takes brave outsiders like yourself to advance the feild for the good of all.
    Thank you

    Graham has finally lost it, deluded beyond belief

    Seriously flawed. Megalithic knowledge lacking. Grandiose overly descriptive babble more like fiction. Conference days over.

    It's quite alright

    I really loved Magicians but if I want to be honest, this one, elaborating on the same thesis and bringing additional evidence, kinda bored me at certain points. Although I listened to it in 2-3 days so it was a marathon, I still felt like, while convincing, it was a bit less thrilling than the previous book. But then again, it might be simply because I was already familiar with the basic idea, and that's why it kind of felt like reading an 'additional and slightly less interesting evidences' appendix to the previous books of the series. Mounds, after all, are much less interesting than Göbekli Tepe and the first time reading about the Younger Drias comet impact.

    I'm sure I'll listen to it again though.

    Intriguing, Good Story, Great Naration

    I have been following Graham Hancock works; books, videos, and talks or interviews, since I read Fingerprints Of The Gods In 2006. Since then I have bought and read almost all of his books.

    But this is the first time I listened to his audiobook. When this book first published, I decided to buy both Hardcopy and the Audiobook and immediately started to listen to it. It is amazing to hear his voice reading his own book with the intonation so perfect which I think how he wanted this book to be read (at least this is my opinion). It was also incredible the way the story was written, told and moreover read, making it a very enjoyable book to listen.

    This book, as many other Graham Hancock’s books, is very well researched, organized and written with beautiful story lines, conversations, descriptions and depictions. Graham surely took my mind to many places as I could imagine to be and to see with my own eyes what he was describing.

    The subject of this book is very intriguing and highly recommended (by me) if you are into pre-historical subject of humankind and have much interest and open to the ideas beyond the border of main-stream science.

    Great book!

    Could have and should have been shorter

    The concept and information was great. But I wasn't enjoyable to hear 17 hours of it.
    If it were condensed to half the length, it would have been a great book.

    Pure truth

    I was hoping that it would keep on going, allways great to hear graham ripping the truth of the world open in a raw but polite way. I know his previous work but I have to start all over again

    So interesting!

    Sometimes Graham doesn't seem to know what science means and how it works. . .

    Can I get my money back?

    Let me preface this by saying I own two of the author's previous works from the "Gods" series, which I enjoyed and found myself to be in alignment with for the most part.

    Having said that, I don't feel like I can give this a full and honest review without sounding like nothing more than a complete troll and a raging hater.

    If you must investigate this book, borrow it before you spend the money to add it to your permanent library.

    Edited: I take back everything I’ve said. Genius!

    New: I’ve listen to the whole audiobook and now I understand the reason of scientific data’s and the extrem detailed narration. It’s pure genius if you get it.
    Old: While I was introduced to Mr. Hancocks amazing findings and work through the Joe Rogan Podcast, I am highly disappointed that this book is basically a couple hours of geographical narratives of locations and data’s which I could let the Wikipedia app read to me for free. However the importance of this data is unarguable.

    Interesting, but too long

    Interesting, but too long for actual evidence presented.
    it feels that there was a lot of time spent explaining facts that didn't really support the theory. There was very little information and evidence presented supporting the actual theory. However those are really interesting and were well presented. overall the book could be 10 hours long and it would be perfectly fine.
