You are absolutely right. I agree with you on this. If Hancock says he works like a journalist when he write his books, like gathering information, sources and visiting the archaeological sites, he did not do a good job as a journalist and how much less as a writer. I am a lawyer and I wrote 2 books. In both I have to study and show more that one source of research to defend my cases and to give my opinion in a book. Brazilian’s laws come from Roman Law. The judge is considered the JUDEX EST PERITUS PERITORUM ( like the judge it is the expert of all experts) so if I don’t present my case as lawyer with all the sources as possible to the judge analyze I lose. What Hancock did as a journalist was wrong. He didn’t did his job. You always have to check your sources tirelessly. I learned that in Law college. You have to always have a very reliable research base.
