The legend of lost Atlantis turns to fact as Shirley Andrews synthesizes a wealth of information from more than one hundred classical and Atlantean scholars, scientists, and psychics to describe the country and its inhabitants.

Review the scientific and geological evidence for an Atlantic continent, which refutes the popular notion that Atlantis was located in the Mediterranean. Follow the history of Atlantis from its beginnings to its destruction, and see a portrait of Atlantean society: its religion, architecture, art, medicine, and life style. Explore shamanism, the power of crystals, ancient techniques for health and healing, pyramid energy, ley lines, the influence of extraterrestrials and the origin of the occult sciences. Learn what happened to the survivors of Atlantis, where they migrated, and how the survivors and their descendants made their mark on cultures the world over.

Truly invaluable. Thanks.
Also, must note a HIGH disproval for Jenny Stone's unfair rating.
Those who think they are alone in the universe consisting of millions of stars and planets are like those who thought the Earth is flat.
Jenny Stone's also harming the book's rating for no apparent reason other than sheer ignorance what saddens greatly. Humans haven't learnt anything from the times of so-called Dark Ages.
Vedas, Sanskrit, ancient Indian culture (from India). Ancient Indians knew how to make an anti-gravitational device/vehicle using at least these components: copper, aluminium, magnets.
