“Tremendous. This guy has done history like you would not believe.” —Glenn Beck
New York Times bestselling historian Gavin Menzies presents newly uncovered evidence revealing, conclusively, that “the lost city of Atlantis” was not only real but also at the heart of a highly advanced global empire that reached the shores of America before being violently wiped from the earth.
For three millennia, the legend of Atlantis has gripped the imaginations of explorers, philosophers, occultists, treasure hunters, historians, and archaeologists. Until now, it has remained shrouded in myth. Yet, like ancient Troy, is it possible that this fabled city actually existed? If so, what happened to it and what are its secrets? The fascinating reality of Atlantis’s epic glory and destruction are uncovered, finally, in these pages in thrilling detail by the iconoclastic historian Gavin Menzies—father of some of “the most revolutionary ideas in the history of history” (New York Times).
Meticulously analyzing exciting new geologic research, recently unearthed archaeological artifacts, and cutting-edge DNA evidence, Menzies has made a jaw-dropping discovery: Atlantis truly did exist, and was part of the incredibly advanced Minoan civilization that extended from its Mediterranean base to England, India, and even America. In The Lost Empire of Atlantis, he constructs a vivid portrait of this legendary civilization and shares his remarkable findings.
As riveting as an Indiana Jones adventure, The Lost Empire of Atlantis is a revolutionary work of popular history that will forever change our understanding of the past.

Lost city of atlantis
It is 729 pages of drivel about aunties. Total waste of money and fake title and cover. Apple should be handing out refunds.
Its fixed and its great!
Now that it is the proper book I just finished reading it and wow what an interesting read! The description does describe the book very accurately and I must say as an amateur historian this book completely changes my view on what we thought we know of human history. I highly recommend this book to anybody looking to discover a completely untold story of human history or just an enthralling historical mystery.
Not the right book
I had the same problem. Apple reversed the charge for the book, but said to wait 2-3 weeks and try again. I'm hoping for more positive feedback a to when the problem is fixed!
