“Tremendous. This guy has done history like you would not believe.”
—Glenn Beck

The secrets of history’s most enduring mystery are finally revealed in The Lost Empire of Atlantis. Through impeccable research and intelligent speculation, Gavin Menzies, the New York Times bestselling author of 1421, uncovers the truth behind the mysterious “lost” city of Atlantis—making the startling claim that the “Atlanteans” discovered America 4,000 years ago and ruled a vast Mediterranean empire that was violently destroyed in 1,500 BC. Forget everything you’ve ever thought about the Atlantis legend—Gavin Menzies will make you a believer!

Listener Opinions

    " Menzies has done it again. 'Th Lost Empire of Atlantis' is filled with speculation taken as fact as he had done with his previous books on pseudo archaeology. He may have been in the Royal Navy (indicted for a ship collision during his service) but he knows nothing about ancient seafaring, navigation, ship building, or trade. His speculation about the Minoans is also laughably wrong. Buried in his exploration of the ancient world is some good hard facts but the reader would be better served reading a more authoritative work. "

    " Gavin Menzies is an author, sailor, journalist, lecturer and historian and he makes his case with solid evidence that Atlantis did truly exist. For an excellent review click on the book icon at upper left. "

    " Excellent, this work in tandem with Manly Hall's lecture series on Atlantis really opens deep thoughts and carries history back several centuries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shay | 1/20/2014

    " Menzie's theories are compelling. This is not stuff that was covered in any of my Greek archaeology classes, but it was also written after I was done with school! I'm somewhat loathe to trust him as he is not an archaeologist himself, and would like to read some of his sources. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Poh | 1/5/2014

    " Amazing insight on what we have learned in school about world history. History is rewritten because of this book~ "

    " I think it's well written and well researched, but it still feels like a stretch to me. "

    " Minoan Trans-Atlantic Bronze Economy FTW!!! "

    " I didn't make it more than halfway through this book when I decided I was fed up with the half-witted postulating and poor prose (which, frankly, has no place in a history book). No. Thank. You. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jjb46 | 4/12/2013

    " Overall it was an enjoyable book but i felt as though it often wavered awkwardly between a scientific thesis and a personal story. The thesis is quite intriguing though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 6/25/2012

    " Such an interesting book. The Minoans features as the lost empire of Atlantis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janette | 4/7/2012

    " Not a fast read for me. Had to really concentrate to put all his facts & ideas into perspective. I did learn a lot...which is why I chose it in the first place! "

    " Very informative and interesting. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator, Gildart Jackson, was excellent. "

    " Reading this book was like reading a journal article-interesting but boring. It took me forever to plow through. "

    " not off to a very exciting start - his 1421 was so full of holes and speculation I was curious about this one - we shall see "
