Review

"You may find yourself watching the skies a little more intently, or even checking under the bed before you go to sleep."-- "Ft. Worth Star-Telegram" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

IF YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN'T BE TRUE…THINK AGAIN.

'…Suddenly Doraty felt as though she was in two separate places at once. Part of her was still standing at the side of the road while another part was still in the hovercraft… The part in the craft was aware of two little humanoids standing beside her. They had long claw-like hands and large heads. They were only about three feet tall. They wore grey body suits and the skin of their hand and heads appeared white and somewhat translucent…'

Stories of UFO sightings and unearthly visitations are as old as mankind. What is the nature of these visitors? What do they want? What is the alien agenda?

Award-winning writer Jim Marrs breaks through misconceptions and conflicting theories, government deceit and duplicity, to draw on startling new evidence from the world's most respected UFO investigators. Delving deep into testimonies accumulated over the past half century, Marrs goes deeper into the UFO phenomena than ever before.

‘There are so many stars that it is mathematically improbable that there aren't other life sources in the universe.’
JOHN W. YOUNG, US Astronaut

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 Nov. 2002
Format: Paperback
Jim Marrs has produced an excellent overview of the UFO literature and history, from its possible origins in folk/fairy tales and biblical passages to its current manifestations in the form of crop circles, animal mutilations, and alien abductions. Even though the author does believe that UFOs are "real," I feel that he is very objective in his writing (which is rare for a journalist such as himself). Although it may not be enough to satisfy the Philip Klasses of the world, he does present some of the evidence and criticisms of debunkers alongside the cases he refers to. Naturally, despite the book's length, I found incidents and theories that I would like to have seen expounded further upon and which I would have included. These are just my own personal feelings, of course, and I fully understand that no author of such an overview could include every thing I would want nor (I am sure) everything that even he wanted to include. Even as someone fairly well-read in ufology, though, I must admit that there were several "new" events and ideas contained in the book that I had not seen nor considered before. Anyone interested in UFOs would profit from this book, even those who still refuse to consider their existence.
The first chapter was particularly interesting to me and, I feel, somewhat brave on the part of the author. Basically, this chapter tosses up the concept of earth's moon being a spaceship. I must say unequivocally that the author does not argue that this is the case, however. While this is an interesting premise and should not be dismissed out of hand, I worry that some doubters out there will simply quit reading when they see such a "preposterous" notion in the very first chapter.

This book doesn't exactly do what it says on the cover, but is more a discussion of the possibilities, evidence and reasons that exist for an extra-terrestrial presence on earth.
As with all books like this you have to approach it with an open mind, but I found some of the subjects fascinating. The author not only covers a huge amount of different topics (from human evolutions to visitations and mutilations through to Government knowledge and interaction), but manages to provide strong and compelling evidence for each subject.
It was nice to see that the reason for the human race not openly knowing about extra-terrestrial life is also covered. You can see the argument from both sides about whether the presence of alien life would ever be openly disclosed.
Although this book won't answer anyone's needs for absolute proof of alien life on earth, it is an interesting read and thorough discussion of the topic. Well recommended for anyone with an interest in this topic.

A very readable reference book on UFOs and associated phenomena, comparable with Timothy Good's best. A refreshingly objective view from the sidelines, well researched and referenced. Chapter on remote viewing is particularly compelling reading as this is rarely discussed in most UFO books. Highly recommended.

I bought this book last yr in a buying frenzy to find out exactly what is going on with the alien abduction phenomena and in that respect the book deilivers quite a lot of information although most of what he has written can be found in other sources this book is a gem for the fact it makes for further reading into each of the subjects he writes about..The book itself is easy to understand unlike some others authors tend to dwell on things which can be hard to comprehend at the best of times Jim delivers his understandings of this in a down to earth way a good read

I have read most books on this subject over the last fifty years. This one is outstanding for several reasons. It starts with a case most people know nothing about and which happened well before the so called ufo era and before flying machines had been invented in the common era.
Jim Marrs' style of writing is straight to the point, he uses the facts, along with good old fashioned logic to draw conclusions about each event. This allows the reader to determine the truth behind the many ufo activity reports from around the world. This book is ideal for those new to the subject of ufos and essential for those well informed. It is a well documented and convincing history of ufo activity on and around our planet. Someone has commented that this book contains nothing new on the subject. That may the case regarding the events that are mentioned in the book, but certainly does not apply to the wealth of evidence to support those events. An ideal read and an excellent reference book to keep.

Marrs explores the ideas here intelligently. He looks at the whole UFO world intelligently, in fact and tries to keep an open mind throughout the book, while he points out the single-mindedness of debunkers Klass and Peebles. Marrs makes some good points but there is a huge amount of UFO books on the market. Marrs does not show any notable bias, but all of these books are not really discovering anything new. So what if most of the US public thinks that the US government is covering up UFOs? So what if 'The X-Files' may actually be real and there are elite groups of people making deals with aliens? Who cares if the Nazis developed flying saucer technology? While these claims may seem far out and bizarre, they are nothing to what has been claimed in some UFO literature. Marrs does not become hysterical about what he writes and he shows good journalistic skill. However, there is nothing groundbreaking here. There are better books and worse books on the market, but if you want an interesting read that will appeal to both beginners and seasoned UFO readers, this might b worth a look.
