The Mystery of Atlantis (L)
The Mystery of Atlantis , by Charles Berlitz, is another example of an author capitalising on his established name in order to get gullible readers to part with their money. This volume is just a regurgitation of previous theories and speculations on the subject. The author carefully avoids expressing any opinion of his own except that he believes that Atlantis will be found. He ends one chapter in the following manner:
“A final question: Can Atlantis be found? The near future will give us the answer. It can and will be – largely through the efforts of underwater explorers, the psychological descendants of the Atlanteans – the new ‘people of the sea’.”
This collection of utter twaddle should be left in the bookshop, or better still –pulped.
