This interesting analysis explores the myth surrounding the infamous MJ12 documents which, if genuine, would prove the existence of a secret commitee formed to cover the existence of extraterrestrial beings and the famous crash at Roswell.
Although Kevin Randle does a good job at analysing the « errors » in the documents, his belief in witnesse’s testimonies surrounding the Roswell incident is a little bit naive. He tends to give them too much credit and doesn’t pay enough attention to the fact that people often seek publicity or tend to distort or exaggerate facts. However, his dissectation of the MJ12 documents and other so-called « government » documents is excellent and really puts to the test the beliefs of some UFO researchers concerning the validity of these documents and their contents. Kevin Randle is very good at pinpointing the various discrepancies existing in those documents.
I highly recommend this book for its excellent analytical quality and for those eager to know more about MJ12.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES – Unlocking the Symbolic Language of World Events – by Ray Grasse
I have started reading this book out of curiosity being interested in the subject of the Aquarian Age. I was pleasantly surprised by the reach insight the author provides in understanding the « new age » and its implications. Ray Grasse uses a lot symbols taken either from the real world (like giving an astrological profile of world figures) or fictional like movies.
Each chapter is filled with information explaining the difference between the current age and the next. Ray Grasse has done a wonderful job of taking historical events, movies, scientific facts, disasters, etc… in order to explain their symbolism and meaning in regards to their timing.
I was never very fascinated by astrology but I found myself hooked to this book and its relevance for our time. Therefore, I will highly recommend it and put it on my list of recent favorites.

In this amazing story, James Redfield takes the reader to a journey through the wonders of Peru in search of a spiritual manuscript left behind by the Mayans.
This is not a true story but, turning page after page of this book, it felt real enough for me to take it seriously. From one insight to the next, we learn about the energy around and in us. What makes this story interesting is the inherent poetry to this journey the main character is undertaking. At each step, his understanding of the divine and human nature takes a leap forward and I found this aspect very refreshing.
I wasn’t particularly thrilled by the adventure in itself. Nothing about his encounter with the Peruvian soldiers or the priests really fascinated me. On the other hand, the difficulties the hero stumbles on makes his search for the truth all the more interesting. By the end of the story, I was so captivated by the « revelations » regarding mankind’s future that I was hoping to read the sequel.
The most becoming moments of the book are indeed the Insights given to the different protagonist in their understanding of evolution. They learn to recognize what the author calls the psychological dramas that each of them (and us) have programmed in themselves since childhood. They learn to recognize how to let go of these dramas in order to reach a superior energy level. This is the way, the characters tell us, we can learn to see beauty in nature and feed ourselves with the divine energy inherent in the trees, plants, etc…
The most appealing aspect to me was the explanation given as how we feed on others’ energies like vampires in order to survive and how the goal is to stop this particular psychological drama and learn to connect to the superior energy source. This part, in my opinion, is what makes the book well worth reading for anyone interested in the invisible forces surrounding us.

If you are are UFO buff, you have got to read this book! The emphasis of this true story is on Alien abductions.
From what the author says, he was abducted by Aliens several times since childhood. However, he is still extremely sceptical about his « experiences » and very much doubts their true existence. In order to verify his « memories », Whitley Strieber underwent lie detection and most importantly hypnotic regression with a reputable psychiatrist.
I did appreciate the sincerity of the narration. The author seemed genuine to me and I didn’t feel like he was trying to impress anyone with some made-up story that feels more like Science-Fiction. On the other hand, his account is full of questions regarding the veracity of his experience and its impact on his daily life.
The first chapters are about his actual experience which includes also what his wife, child and some of his friends may have experienced. In the following chapters, Whitley tries to connect his experience with philosophical and historical issues pertaining to the significance of the triangle to the aliens as recalled by many witnesses including himself. Also included are complete transcriptions of Whitley’s hypnotic regressions and an account of a meeting with other possible abductees sharing their experiences.
While reading this book, I got the impression that the author was also trying very hard to look for answers on whether his memories of being abducted by those aliens were true or not.
This is an excellent book in my opinion, although it is the first I have read of a personal account of this type. Of course, I am still skeptical and I don’t accept Mr. Strieber’s story as being necessary the truth. On the other hand, I have no reason to doubt this man either. He seems like a down-to-earth kind of person. He doesn’t strike me as someone who makes-up stories to get only public attention and money.
So I leave it up to the reader to pass his own judgment. I definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in the UFO phenomena.
