Years ago I read Invisible College. I've read The Day After Roswell, Hunt for the Skinwalker, Crash at Corona and a few others. Any GOOD ones that shouldn't be missed?

a reply to: vlawde If a person was to read but one book on UFOs, I recommend one not on your list. That book is "The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects," authored by Edward J. Ruppelt, (Capt.) former head of the first Project Blue Book. While sanctioned by the air force in that day, the book gives remarkable insights into a phenomena that the government insists to this day does not exist--or rather what they say today is that they represent no threat to national security. Ruppelt was later to write that he felt himself a scapegoat for a wall of denial that was being maintained to hide the real events.

Two weeks ago I was at the UFO Museum in Roswell and in checking out their very extensive library, I could not find a copy of that book. (I have four copies.) Asked for help, the librarian found a paperback version and had no listing for a hardback version.

I encourage people interested in UFOs to check out used book stores for the older UFO books that tended to give dramatic reports on sightings and especially the early actions of the air force to discover what the objects were.

As for your list, I have an extended comment about "Triangular UFOs: The Estimate of the Situation" by David Marlar. Back in 2001 I had an article with virtually that exact name published on a UK UFO site. It was the first of its kind that did an indepth look at the triangles. My title was taken from the Air Force report of 1952 on the origins of the UFOs which was entitled "The Estimate of the Situation." It was my conclusion at that early stage of that particular craft's arrival on the scene that they were reversed-engineered alien craft but the shape was derived from our still using our three-axis method of flight control probably due to unsolved complexities of the alien system. It would be interesting to see where Marlar got his title and info and whether he supported the reversed-engineered point or attempted to disallow it.

Not so much a book but The Disclosure Project by one Stephen Greer is well worth reading. Just ignore all the new age hippy crap and stick to the testimonials - they alone are worth getting through the tat.

Earth:An alien enterprise is also pretty good by Tim Good.

John Mack, Harvard psychiatrist, wrote extensively on first-hand accounts of abduction experiences....Passport to the Cosmos is a well-written summary of his years of research and profiles several patient experiences. I'd recommend any of his books, but that one in particular.

You should try a book called "Our Haunted Planet" by John Keel.

I'm three quarters of the way through and while it isn't just about UFO's it encompasses the entire idea. It has things about theories of life, it has things about Ulterterrestrials and stuff like that. It's actually pretty enjoyable. I read on the Kindle but bought the physical book because I couldn't find it anywhere.

I'm not all that sure on the whole links and stuff and whether you can but this is a great site to get books. It has most and while some you have to pay for there are tons that you don't including UFO related stuff. You just have to search for your book and scroll down.

A good classic is the mothman prophecies by John Keel.

Jim Marrs and Alien Agenda is also excellent.

The Key,communion and the secret school by Whitley Strieber.

And another excellent author is Philip Imbrogno and I would recommend Interdimensional Universe and Ultraterrestrial contact by him.

I have Kindle but have switched my reading to Google books as you can upload to your Google books library from your computer and then read from any device.

I liked the Sekret Machines book for some light reading. Nothing too heavy.

haha that's partly why I'm asking for recommendations, I just finished reading that last night. I'm more looking forward to the "non-fiction" books mentioned coming up as part of this entire project. Yup, it was a light read. The writing style, plot etc were not very well done, pretty corny overall IMO

Hate to break it to you. Every book mentioned in this thread is full of fiction.

According to the Mandela Effect, that word really is FACTION, not fiction.

"UFO Danger Zone" by Bob Pratt.

In my top 3 with

"Passport to Magonia"

and

"Messengers of Deception"

I find most "UFO books" tiresome and a waste of time.

Kev

PS:

ENCOUNTERS WITH STAR PEOPLE: Untold Stories of American Indians
by Ardy Sixkiller Clarke

Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation
by David Marler

Ufos Psychic Close Encounters: The Electromagnetic Indictment
by Albert Budden

Are also enjoyable..

That last book on the list will be going out of print.. I'd grab a copy before it does..
I bought two copies just in case.. it's a complete gem... but only if you are very
open to the idea that "UFOs" are just "psychic/electromagnetic phenomenon".
