Although the title Signs of the Gods was a bit misleading as usually the name and the cover would lead you to think one way, that is just a simple discrepancy in a book filled with interesting facts.
True to his form, von Daniken provides well detailed information that answers all questions that pop into your mind while reading, refutes scientists explanations, and brings up things you have probably never heard about even though alien astronaut theories are your forte.
Also true to his form, von Daniken (at least in my eyes is seen as comically) spazzes out with whole paragraphs that run a question mark at the end of every sentence.
Did the "gods" build it? If so, why did they? What was their purpose? Could modern man have build such a thing? If so, where are the tools? Why can't modern man do such things today? (and so on, probably about 10 - 20 of these paragraphs in the whole book).
This book doesnt give you the topics it talks upon until you buy it, but in small it talks about...
The Kebra Nagast
Moses and the arch of the covenant
The long lines of stones in Europe
The 456,000 year old kings list
and much more! Definitely a pick up if you are an ancient astronaut theorist! 5/5
