I bought this book with great anticipation...was on the waiting list for months! When it finally became available I couldn't wait to read it. I flipped through it in even more anticipation at the fantastic pictures and illustrations once I got it.
I have to say I was thrilled and disappointed all at once. The content of the book was absolutely fascinating. The author stirred up subjects that totally engulfed me; but as I'd read into each, I found him wandering off into some other rather uninteresting part of the subject and leaving me dying to get back to the original thought...which he often didn't. I got the feeling that he hurried the book and that it never really got edited... Thoughts ran off the page and never got finished; as if pages were missing from the printing.
I'd like to see this entire book rethought and rewritten, because the CONTENT of the book is astounding to say the least. I'd recommend it to anyone who's digging into ancient history/origins because it has so much interesting material. But I would certainly warn them that it's not a well written or easy to follow book. I actually found myself getting bored with the author's wandering thoughts, especially when he teased with a fascinating subject, then wandered off to la la land.

Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
In Technology Of The Gods, David Childress documents the science and achievements of long-lost civilizations which are comparable to, and in some cases even exceeded, our own level of advancement. Contrary to scholastic traditions, humankind has not progressed in a steadily upward linear progression. The ancients had technologies that cannot be replicated by the science of today. Technology Of The Gods introduces us to antiquarian achievements such as the structures built by the megalithic cultures, the use of crystal lenses and the "fire from the gods" in both ancient religious ceremonies and warfare; ancient flight and the archaic documents describing the technology. Fascinating, challenging, controversial, informative, Childress' Technology Of The Gods is an informative survey and reference for students of history, science, and metaphysics.

I enjoyed this book immensely, apart from typographical errors, poor editing and poor science this is a classic.
