"Ed Malkowski's previous books show evidence of Civilization X in a well-researched, enlightening, and entertaining way. In Return of the Golden Age he takes readers from the present to precataclysmic times and the Golden Age that existed with Civilization X. He then brings us back to the upcoming Golden Age. A truly wonderful read!" Bruce Cunningham, director of Ancient Mysteries International, LLC "Can our educational, social and economic systems change from their emphasis on how to make money to buy more stuff to an emphasis on embracing higher consciousness and expanded awareness as the goals in life? Can we rise up from our narrow, self-centered lives to become people of genuine wisdom? Author, Ed Malkowski thinks we can, and he and others see it beginning to happen in the midst of the mess we have now. Let's hope he's right." Alan Glassman, New Dawn, March 2014
