UK Kirkus Review » Readers of a certain age will recall a 1980s TV series called The Man from Atlantis. Starring Patrick Duffy, it was not very good. The Atlantis Syndrome, on the other hand, is good. What is more, it is well written and interesting. In it, Paul Jordan sets out to investigate the history of Atlantis and the myths and legends that have evolved from its first mention in the writings of Plato. Plato's description of the island "...larger than Libya and Asia put together.." is the source of all the stories of Atlantis since. From Jules Verne to Marion Zimmer Bradley, novelists have used Plato's Atlantis as the basis to create a range of 'lost worlds' that and enthralled their readers. Jordon has no problems with them. But he is very much against the money spinner that is Atlantology - those writers who believe that Atlantis was somehow linked to the parting of the Red Sea and the biblical plagues; to civilisations in outer-space; that there is some ancient wisdom waiting to be found to solve all the evils of the world, and make a lot of money out of it. Jordan does an excellent job of, one by one, taking these theories, pointing out their failings and contradictions and basically showing them as being complete bunkum. A worthwhile, and often very amusing, read. (Kirkus UK)
