HASH(0xa1905f6c) étoiles sur 5 Gives translation and comments on ancient aircraft in India. 19 juin 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The author/editor provides us with a translation of ancient texts from India which purport to describe aircraft construction and operation. He then makes comments about the subject, including excerpts from related works.

The point is that, according to Childress and others, the ancient civilization of India had made technological advances equaling and perhaps surpassing our own before it was mysteriously destroyed--perhaps in a nuclear war! I'm dubious, but his evidence is compelling nevertheless.

HASH(0x9febd270) étoiles sur 5 Fascination & Boredom 14 mai 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After reading this book there is no doubt whatsoever that ancient history was quite different than what we are taught at school. In this sense, the books purpose has been fulfilled.

What Childress is good at is choosing fascinating and adventurous topics, capturing the readers attention with mystery and building a case by quoting from many different sources.

Having said that, there are a few things that bother me about his books in general: Childress seems to be a lazy writer who prefers to make compilations of other sources than to write things himself or come up with original thoughts of his own. His books are more Compilation of Materials than genuine story-telling or research. Also, he could spend a little more time writing/compiling/editing his books. There are several grammer mistakes, unfinished lines of thought, unrelated material, unreferenced sources and unclear editing in his books. Just a little more love and care to this important work would be appreciated. Another thing that gets quite tiring after awhile is the constant bashing of and antagonism towards contemporary science and religion. Much more support and cooperation from regular scientists good be gained if he?d stop ridiculing them (a mistake many esoteric authors make).

As far as this specific book goes, the Sanskrit transcripts are detailed and incredibly boring technical manuals to build spaceships, written thousands of years ago. They are in fact so boring, describing every minute detail of building spaceships (how to manufacture metals, interiour, machines, pilots clothing, weaponry, etc.) that there can be no doubt that these are not science-fiction stories or fantasy myths, but just that: Technical Manuals. Funny how the fantastic revelation of ancient spacehips can become this tedious. Since Indian scientists are taking these manuscripts seriously, it would have been interesting to know if and how they are applying this information, but little detail is given on that.

Still, in the context of human history this book is important enough to deserve 4 stars.

HASH(0x9ff10618) étoiles sur 5 Another review 23 octobre 2005
Par M. Robb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this book out of curiosity after hearing about various ancient computers (the Antikythera mechanism), and how much knowledge from the past has been lost.

I am not too surprised that ancient builders might have decorated their vehicles as animals. Fighter planes have been decorated as sharks by painting teeth on the sides, and radio-controlled airplanes have been remodelled into such objects as the "flying lawnmower", the "flying stop sign" and a "flying doghouse" to name but a few objects.

This book is worth buying simply for the translation of the

"Vimaanika Shastra" and the description of the ancient Rama empire of India.

HASH(0x9fbc2204) étoiles sur 5 brilliant subject matter - weak delivery 12 mars 2008
Par Apollo Spear - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a reference work on the subject of ancient aircraft, this book could be very useful. the ideas presented are fascinating and at some points surprising. However, the writing is so amateur that is almost hurts to read this book. Simple grammatical errors, poor editing, jumping around and spending time on seemingly irrelevant subjects is only the beginning.

Childress gives us hope in the beginning by citing valid sources such as the ancient Sanskrit texts themselves and knowledgeable scholars. But this is quickly destroyed by lengthy references to esoteric sources like the "Lemurian Fellowship", upon which many of his statements regarding Atlantis and Lemuria are based. This puts this truly brilliant subject matter in the esoteric pseudo-scientific, non-serious corner.

The sloppy stream-of-thought writing style and extensive overuse of exclamation points (!) to underline every supposedly insightful sentence does this material a disservice. Fortunately it is repairable. I'm sure this book can be useful as a reference list for someone seriously interested in this brilliant subject.

I hope that in future scholars can address this material with greater clarity. Not only did ancient civilizations probably have technologies more advanced than modern man, they were apparently able to write in a more sophisticated way as well. Isn't it time we began learning from them on this point, too?
