I am curious. I am new to this forum, and I was wondering what people thought of Erich von Daniken and similar writers. I am only now reading some of his books, although I bought quite a few of them some years ago (9 of them, to be precise, plus one by Graham Hancock).

I am currently reading "Chariots of the Gods", his first book. What do people think of it over all? Do let me know, as I am quite curious. I have heard everything from "He's a modern-day Galileo!" To "He's a total fraud!", and I want to know what you all think.
