Now in his 90th year, eminent biblical scholar and internationally acclaimed author, Zecharia Sitchin, has spent the past 60 years researching and translating Sumerian clay tablets and other ancient texts that identify the Anunnaki and their planet, Nibiru. A journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.
"Drawing on a vast range of scholarship as well has his [Zechariah Sitchin] grasp of ancient languages and archaeology, he asserts that two of the tombs of Ur contained the remains of an Annunaki goddess Puabi, which actually still exist in the Natural History Museum. . . an intriguing story." * The Scientific & Medical Network, UK, December 2010 * "Utilizing the Bible (which Sitchin also provides some Hebrew words and the English mis-translations), Sumerian clay tablets and/or cylinders, as well as some other ancient texts, the author presents his case of how man (modern day humans) came to be. . . . I recommend this book for those who are interested in aliens, ancient history, and for those who can handle a lot of detailed information. I enjoyed the book." * Jan, Reality Undefined, June 2010 * "For thousands of years priests, poets, and scientists have tried to explain how man was created. Now a recognized scholar has come forth with a theory that is the most astonishing of all." * United Press International * "Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man's origins . . . a dazzling performance." * Kirkus Reviews * "One of the most important books on Earth's roots ever written." * East West Journal * "Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling." * Library Journal * "Reflects the highest levels of scientific knowledge . . ." * Science & Religion News *
