Digging for the Truth: One Man's Epic Adventure Exploring the World's Greatest Archaeological Mysteries by Josh Bernstein
Digging for the Truth: One Man's Epic Adventure Exploring the World's Greatest Archaeological Mysteries

AmandaWolfe, January 11, 2007

If you love the show, you'll really love the book. Josh tells about the little things that go on behind the scenes that he can't show on TV. If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend it. Josh Bernstein brings the viewers (and readers of this book) on a wild ride, asking questions and getting some answers. For those who are bored with history 'stuff' this is the show to watch. It may not answer every question, but it will keep you interested. It doesn't give just one angle on history, but tries to present as many viewpoints as possible. The book adds to the experience by going into detail about how what it takes to film each episode, meeting the experts (with a wide range of opinions and facts), you name it. Along with well written anecdotes about things that have happened along the way, the book is as entertaining as the show.

Highly recommended!
