This is definitely one of the most interesting `contactee' stories. It would probably be a lot more believable in most peoples eyes without the rambling prophecies at the end of the book; which the author claims have been dictated by the `space brothers'. Taken as fact or fiction the alleged alien messages do contain some eternal truths, but the manner which they are written in certainly isn't conducive to the message of truth they claim to be pronouncing. The prophecies are cloaked in ridiculously vague language that can be interpreted in any number of ways. They serve no useful purpose in telling us what is to come. The only way they could be made to work, is if we looked back after an event that had already happened and fitted it into their vague language. Why bother? They tell us nothing. Ridiculous language and claims on the part of the `space brothers' seems to be a feature of these stories. If the intention is to protect us or them and not interfere in our development, by limiting the impact of the stories why bother in the first place? All the `contactee' stories have done is influence the UFO and new age sub-cultures and communities, and maybe popular culture a bit. The people who would seek out a book like this would usually already have an interest in its themes anyway. Nothing new or revolutionary has been said in any of these books. Certainly worth buying though if you're interested in the `contactee'/`space brothers' books, especially as they tend to become quite scarce a few years after they're printed.
