Erich von Daniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and best-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. The worldwide best seller was followed by 40 more books and his works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 65 million copies. Several have also been made into films.
"Chariots of the Gods is a pivotal book, first published at an important point in human consciousness and awareness, a time when minds were opening. That book changed many's and my own worldview. Erich von Dï¿½niken has again touched the pulse of humanity at another crucial moment, in discussing the now known 'fact' that The Gods Never Left Us." --Colin Andrews, author of On the Edge of Reality
