Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx. But here is where it all began---von Däniken's startling theories of our earliest encounters with alien worlds, based upon his lifelong studies of ancient ruins, lost cities, potential spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Däniken's theory that we ourselves are the descendents of these galactic pioneers---and the archaeological discoveries that prove it:

  • An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
  • Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
  • Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
  • A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
  • A giant spaceport preserved in the Andes

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erik Graff | 2/6/2014

    " It is embarrassing to admit having read this monumental bestseller, but I did after having heard about it all over the place. Among the very many books which attempt to substantiate the hypothesis that our distant ancestors had substantial contact with aliens from outer space, this is one of the worst. Charitably, von Daniken simply didn't do much homework. Less charitably, and as further suggested by his later work, he is a pathological liar. "

    " Ancient Aliens is an addiction of mine. To think we are the only intelligent life form is craziness! Open your mind to the possibilities with Herr von Daniken's bestseller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/23/2014

    " Hard book to read, whilst some interesting ideas I just don't buy into it. This theory is ok but I think it stretches the facts to far and leaves too many questions for me, but each to his or her own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simone | 1/14/2014

    " I am glad I finally got round and listened to this book. The theory behind it made a lot of sense to me, when I first heard of it. Listening to it makes it even clearer, and I must say these are some quite brilliant speculations, especially groundbreaking if you consider it was written shortly before humans landed on the moon. One thing I am sure of: there is much left unanswered in human history, and this book tries to make us think outside the box, which is in itself an admirable quality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Arthur | 1/13/2014

    " It was an OK read... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brent Bates | 1/5/2014

    " Little dry. It is his version of factual not a story book. Found it interesting. I could see his point on many items about aliens visiting in the past. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Riker Mcduffy | 1/2/2014

    " If you haven't read this and are interested in UFOs this book is really a must i would recommend no other over this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bella | 12/27/2013

    " Read this book with an open mind and know that no one now living really knows for sure... It opens many a "what if?" examination of what we think we know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Canis Lupus | 11/29/2013

    " It is a book to open one's mind. Accept possibilities that one may never have thought about, or even have heard of. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pete daPixie | 10/16/2013

    " I can remember when I read this book, so many years ago now, that I knew straight away that Erich was totally nuts. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pushkar | 10/8/2013

    " At first sight the "mysteries" presented look like an argument that needs open mind & further research. However after going through the book and then watching a 1977 documentary (The Case of Ancient Astronauts?) by PBS NOVA the book sounds like a sensationalist archaeology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dylan | 1/10/2013

    " So far a pretty interesting read, although many points seem far fetched. Must have been crazy to read about when first issued. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eve | 4/26/2012

    " Alternative view of the beginning of humankind and civilization. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach Benn-lawler | 3/24/2012

    " Have my Mum's old copy from '72. Good in that it served to open my eyes as a child to the mysteries of the ancient world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Francia Chavez | 2/9/2012

    " very entertaining to read, made me smile, and maybe wonder a liittle...oh and carl sagan also mentioned this book in "cosmos." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alireza Allahdadi | 12/2/2011

    " I trust this book. It's amazing. It's good. Just read it and find many answers to unsolved questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi Langston | 10/2/2011

    " Loved his stuff growing up. All our theories on evolution are somewhat flawed. There is a missing part to the evolutionary process of man. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 George | 9/25/2011

    " This was an "OK" book. Author hypothesizes that human population on earth is the result of alien astronauts who arrived thousands of. years ago. Proof postulated includes many bold assertions that can't be supported but cause you to go: "hmmmmmm." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 6/10/2011

    " Space planet bajeebus! Aliens raised us, and that lumpy crock of stone over there proves it! Maybe not...but here are some grainy pictures to prove it! Never believe anyone with a "von" in their name. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Victoria | 4/6/2011

    " Definitely a wierdo bu why not see what the stick is about. He made a little sense and there's alot of "Oh I see what you mean moments...but overall it is a little far fetched.. "
