Biographie de l'auteur
One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.

I am obviously a fan of Sitchin's work and with good reason - it has changed my life. Since childhood I have been sure of few things, but one of them has been that things are often not what people and books tell you they are - most times, you have to discover the truth yourself. Parents, siblings, friends, advertising, school books, teachers - you name it. It's not that they want to lie to you, most of them, it's that they're parroting to you what they were told without questioning whether or not it makes any sense. I've spent my life with my BS detector set on "high" and this has made me a seeker, not a joiner. But this seeker has often had to stop himself from giving up his own writing and publishing life's work - I've got over forty titles on Amazon - and devoting himself totally to helping Zecharia get his work out to a world that so obviously needs it.
You can't know where you are going without knowing where you've come from - if you disagree, then just look at the news to see what I'm talking about. Zecharia Sitchin's universal field theory of humanity could, and for his millions of readers it has, in and of itself, started the peoples of the world on the road to unity. Reading his work explains so much, it makes sense, it feels right, you name it. And it's very entertaining because the story of mankind's creation is the most interesting story in history, no?
Einstein's famously spiritual take on the universe is also similar to Sitchin's painstaking, scientific research in his courageous investigation to find the truth about every sacred cow of religion and spirituality and science without being trampled by them. If you're like me and you don't care what people say about you when you know what you're doing and talking about, then prepare to take the ride of your life: from ignorance to understanding.
Zecharia Sitchin's "12th Planet" series is the greatest detective story ever put down on paper. How I wish I had had "The Earth Chronicles Handbook" all those years ago when my friend Robert Cornog FINALLY convinced me to read Zecharia Sitchin's work. My resistance to reading about "ancient astronaut" theories, based on the numerous works that can't hold a candle to Sitchin's, caused me to waste a year or two of my life in the darkness that not knowing true history keeps the world and its people.
Don't let your natural resistance to the changes that real growth and spiritual wisdom can grace you with keep you from truly enjoying the "inside" knowledge about humanity, the monumental carved stone monuments around the world (and their connection to Jerusalem and the middle east's ceaseless turmoil), and so much more.
Every time I start explaining just a little of what I've learned from Sitchin everyone around me wants to know more and more. So, like the old ads used to say "Be the life of the Party!" Seriously, buy "The Earth Chronicles Handbook" and AT LEAST one of Sitchin's other works, as many as you can afford. If you buy one and read it, you'll buy them all. I give them out as gifts to those I really like and whose intelligence I respect.
And now I've given you the gift of pointing you to where the treasure is. True gold is just waiting for you to open up the treasure chest Zecharia Sitchin has spent his life digging up and cleaning up just for all of us. Enjoy! And thanks, Zecharia!
The book is extremely well organized, cross referencing terms, and providing the origin of the word; is it a Sumerian (bold text), Akkadian, Canaanite or Hebrew term (Italics), Egyptian (Capital letters)... Also, if the interpretation of something is that of Sitchin, the reference will include 'ZS'.
Also, I highly recommend you get the hardcover version of this book and the Kindle version of the other books!!!! I say this because the font size in the paperbacks is so small that it will dissuade many from finishing the book (at least my my 50+ year old eyes) so the Kindle version lets you adjust the font size making for easy reading and the Kindle version include pictures. However, since this book is a reference book, you need a 'real book' to flip through to look up stuff as you read his others works - this would be a pain in the backside if you had to look up words in the Kindle version while you read. So get the hardcover version. In addition, this reference book is rich in general information like who where the Hittites, Canaanites, and The Adam...
If you are reading the works of Sitchin then you will find this book invaluable.
So you can look up Enki and get some definition and it will say "see also xxxxx".
Since I don't have the 7 books, it's pretty much useless to me... I'm not sure how useful it would be even if I did
