The book reveals a quirk of geology that caused the Mid-Atlantic Ridge – a submerged mountain range that exists today – to rise substantially above sea level during the last Ice Age, creating a large island. Then, at the end of the Ice Age the glaciers receded reversing the process and the island rapidly sank. The book's premise is partly derived from the scientific findings of several prominent, published geologists.
Interestingly, the timing and location of this transient Atlantic island coincide precisely with what Plato claims about Atlantis. Solving the Atlantis Mystery reveals the most promising evidence yet in support of the ancient existence of Atlantis. It does so by demonstrating a proven geological process for why it almost certainly did!
The book is illustrated and written to a popular-science, history’s-mysteries oriented audience. It is, however, thorough enough to be of interest to those technically adept in the earth sciences, history and anthropology.
