Graham Hancock's multimillion best seller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth's lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returns with the sequel to his seminal work filled with completely new scientific and archaeological evidence which has only recently come to light.

Graham Hancocks - for all of his critiscism - has really done his homework on this one. While the prepositions made by Hancock call for a complete revision in the time line of human civilization, there really is a plethora of evidence to support it. If his hypothesis of the interconnectedness of all of these ancient sites holds no truth, there still seems to have been a catastrophy that set humanity back. I've always been perplexed by ancient megalithic sites, especially about how later additions always fell short in complexity and grandeur to the stone work that preceded them. It's a grave concern that the academic community have labelled his work as pseudoscientific. How can it be that cultures all over the world once held great knowledge of building and then lost it around the same time? I hope his work succeeds in sparking the interest of the next generation of archeologists to further explore his ideas and come to a truth.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Atomic Habits by James Clear, read by the author. A revolutionary system to get 1 percent better every day. People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions - doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early or holding a single short phone call. He calls them atomic habits.

While there were some interesting methods to keep yourself accountable to changes, I was surprised to find that the majority of the advice is what I'd consider common knowledge. I suppose I may have done a lot of the work already in my life. There was not much in terms of a nuanced approach. To summarise this book in a sentence, 'start small, write down your progress, keep yourself accountable by telling others of your endevours' - there just isn't much more to it if you already know the basics.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.
