BOOK REVIEW: “Axis of the World” by Igor Witkowski

Axis of the World: The Search for the Oldest American Civilization by Igor Witkowski (Amazon) (Goodreads)

Igor Witkowski presents a captivating premise searching for the oldest civilization on Earth (specifically in the Pacific area). However,  his extensive research extends too far for the reader to grasp.

Witkowski explains how South America’s and the Pacific islands’ ancient civilizations may be extensions of an older nation no longer in existence based on their similar cultural and biological characteristics.  The book begins with a simple step in the Easter Island’s origins chapter then it stumbles down into a complex web of monument measurements and random facts remotely related to the subject at hand thereafter. Witkowski  even added a casual section about his unpleasant passenger experience in a “primitive” South American plane.

On the other hand, a collection of interesting investigations are found this book: ancient American mummies, the Nan Madol curse, and the Tianhuanaco mystery.

This book’s simple, attractive topic misleads the reader to a jungle of excessive information. Witkowski has done an excellent job researching no doubt but there was more than needed personally. This man has traveled around the world as part of his study for this book. He provided pictures to prove it. Overall, I picked up a few valuable gems from this challenging book.
