I was wondering if it were possible that a criticisms section might be compiled and written about this article since it seems unlikely that a book like this could make the claims it does without drawing some sort of academic scrutiny worthy of inclusion in an encyclopedic entry. Also I'd like a second opinion on this statement made in the article:

"His book is divided into five parts: The History of Atlantis, The Deluge, The Civilization of the Old World and the New Compared, The Mythologies of the Old World A Recollection of Atlantis, and The Colonies of Atlantis. In his well organized book, he adequately links Atlantis to many societies including the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Chinese, Ancient South American Indians, and Ancient Celts."

Adequate by whose standards? And I know that while his book may be well organized his links are indeed questioned in their adequacy by historians. Thats about all I have to say on this article for now. HuronKing -- 6:17, 1 August 2006

I'll have to agree, the article seems to be written in the style of a review, rather than an objective offering of information. --J4m3sb0nd (talk) 10:38, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Martin Gardner's Fads and Fallacies: In the Name of Science discusses Donnelly. Suffice it to say, that scientists never took it seriously, and that the rise of plate tectonics theory in the mid-20th century has shown that it has even more problems...

Who owns the rights to this book now - is it copyright-free? when it is sold on amazon for example where does the money go to? whom gets royalties? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:57, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

It's in public domain. When you buy a physical book then the money goes to whoever owned or produced the book. In the future please direct these kinds of questions to the Wikipedia:Reference desk. Article talk pages are only meant for discussing how to improve the article. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 09:56, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
