After analyzing hundreds of ancient texts and the notorious Voynich manuscript, von Däniken
now proclaims that human history is nothing like the world religions claim—and he has the
proof. In History Is Wrong, he examines the mysterious, illustrated Voynich manuscript, which is thought to have been written in the 15th or 16th century and which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery.
Von Däniken makes some startling revelations about the manuscript and the equally incredible Book of Enoch. He unearths the astounding story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels, and he provides evidence that the metal library has links not only to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers.
And what of the mysterious Nazca lines that resemble landing strips that archeologists claim
are ancient procession routes? Among other hair‐raising revelations in History Is Wrong, von
Däniken reveals fascinating data about the Nazca lines that the archeologists have missed.
Von Däniken’s lifelong fascination with extraterrestrials first found its expression in 1968 with
the international best‐seller Chariots of the Gods. He has became world famous by his 26 books, that have sold more than 63 million copies, and by the TV special ʺIn Search of Ancient
Astronauts.ʺ The charismatic author makes frequent appearances on the international lecture
circuit, in documentaries and on Television, and he is the chairman of the Archaeology,
Astronautics & SETI Research Association, as well as a regular contributor to its magazine,
