"Do the global elite conceal ancient aliens ? " asks the question on the cover, while on the rear the blurb enquires, "But are these visitors (ET) simply observers - or do they play a much more active and controlling roll ?" Under the impression that the central thesis revolved around these concepts, I bought the book. Well I've just finished the book, and am none the wiser, as very little in the book directly addresses these questions. Instead, it is essentially a re-hashing of plenty of other books before it dealing with the "same old" pieces of the jigsaw. The first half is all about ancient aliens as these appear in various ancient texts, while the second half is dominated by an exploration of who controls the world's monetary system and how Earth is shaping up to be something along the lines of Orwell's 1984. At no point does the book properly discuss what the rear blurb leads you to expect , ie that the ancient ET's may have an active role in our recent and modern affairs, so it was rather a misleading synopsis overall on the back cover.

It is a useful starting-point for the "newbie" to these kinds of topics. For the well-versed reader it is a waste of time, trust me. I skimmed past large sections of it as there is so little in there that has not been written about before. The much older "Gods of Eden" did a far superior job of tackling the (absent) "central thesis" I was expecting to read in Marrs' book .

Another gripe is that he relied heavily on Sitchin's interpretations of the Sumerian texts. I am aware Sitchin got a lot right, but those of us who have read around a lot also know he got some things wrong. I was very surprised that a seasoned writer and researcher would go near Sitchin's work if he wants to be taken truly seriously , given how heavily discredited some of it has become over time.

Overall, it felt like Marrs was trying to cram too much into this book. And it completely fails to "pin the blame" on the "global elite" for concealing ancient aliens. All we learn about the global elite is how mad for money, power and control they are. But umpteen other authors have been over this before........

Bit of a yawn fest overall unless you are new to this kind of research. And even then, I'd steer you away from this book and towards "Gods of Eden" by William Bramley instead.

Jim Marrs is a very interesting author, I particularly like Alien Agenda, and Psy Spies. Well in this one, although he got many interesting insights, he got wrong in several aspects and really falls short in many different ways.
Conceptually he tries to bring on many conspiracies, instead of dealing with the data in a coherent form, so he reaches a result which is biased and contradictory, though we must take in consideration that the subject is a thorny one.
The contradiction is based on the fact, that in the past there was Alien/Anunnaki activity, but then this people got trapped but they managed still to use some sort of lo-fi technology to control us. The contradiction is that the high technology contacts still happened after the period that Jim Marrs said they would not be happening.
Also I felt ashamed for him, in been messed up with khazar conspiracies, as we know now that ashkenazy Jews are Middle Eastern man who married Eurpean women, the Kazarian contribution was in fact very small. This anti-semitic hint really damages the work, establishing links that are not supposed to be there, in fact they are plain wrong, and then it is just repeating a mantra, instead of pursuing the objective of the proposed study, our true history.

This book offers an interesting compendium of alternative history. Jim Marrs quotes other author's research and writing, he organizes it and summarises it well offering valuable insight. Why I don't buy into everything that is said, he does offer an interesting perspective that motivates you to look into the subject with more depth. Our history does offer a lot of question marks and this book's insight into some very plausible answers.
It is very well written and researched, like all of Jim Marrs books.

Very well written and thoroughly researched. Includes some information covered by other authors but plenty of new material I haven't read before. Thoroughly enjoyable and difficult to put down.

An interesting and scary story which combines a lot of people's work and ideas into one big theory.
Basically it says the 'powers that be' / 'NWO' are covering up human history and technology from our ancient past and implies that aliens might possibly have been responsible for that ancient knowledge.
Very scary if even a only small part of the information is true.
All of the book's sources are detailed at the back of the book for anyone wanting to read further or pursue their own investigations.
It makes references to all the usual suspects like David Icke, Jesse Ventura, Alex Jones, Erich von Däniken, Zecharia Sitchin and many others.
If you are a believer or 'awake' as they call it, this reinforces what you already believe.
If you are a non believer this might just perhaps give you an insight into how the world is perceived by the 'awake'.

Heard an interview with Jim Marrs and it was fascinating - and not at all weird!
It is a good and easy read and I wish everyone had the courage to give it a go.

Great value, delivery and a really great eye opening book. Read it to learn the real history of thw world and not only the politically correct history.

What an amazing read. Jim Maars is without doubt one of the best authors of his type.

This disappointed me. It seemed rushed and poorly thought out with lots of errors; in word and logic. There is an important question to ask and answer when it comes to this subject but this book wasn't up to it.
