Atlantis: The Find of a Lifetime by Christos A. Djonis explores the archaeological evidence that has been discovered supporting the existence of Atlantis. The book begs the question of whether the civilization was created entirely from Plato's imagination or if it was based upon a real place known to the Greeks. Djonis chronicles a journey spanning thousands of years that has led to the discovery of the civilization now below the water. Detailed and well-researched, Atlantis is a thorough gathering of evidence and facts, including articles, satellite technology, and more. The book contains photos and maps which accompany the various findings that have been proven to match Plato's account of Atlantis.

Christos A. Djonis presents a detailed gathering of the evidence, research, and technology that has gone into thousands of years of wondering about the existence of Atlantis. Djonis incorporates visuals and the research and evidence, which provides maps and pictures for the geography behind Plato's Atlantis. The visuals add to the thorough research presented by allowing you to see how geography and history have changed. It also takes a vivid look at the existence and reality of Atlantis by delving into the question of if Plato used his imagination to create Atlantis or if it stems from a real prehistoric location. This is a deep dive into a lesser-known part of history that features the technological abilities and feats discovered about our ancient ancestors, such as the Antikythera Mechanism found on the bottom of the Aegean Sea.

History lovers will enjoy the foray into this lesser-known history which features elements of the Great Flood known in various cultures and religions. Evidence from various sources can be found throughout, including from archaeologist Jeffrey Rose and articles from the New York Times in 1982 that detail artifacts discovered and Roman coins that washed ashore in Florida. Djonis creates a mesmerizing blend of history, research, and myth that brings Atlantis out of mythology and into our own history. Atlantis: The Find of a Lifetime is well-researched, detailed, fascinating, and will appeal to those that favor history, archaeology, myth, and the writings of Plato.
