This was one of those annoying instances when I bought a book thinking it was about one thing and it turned out to be something entirely different. First off, after reading the book I decided a more appropriate title would be, "A history of ufo crash hoaxes", since Mr. Randle takes great pride in trying to convince you that just about everything and everyone associated with crashed ufo's is a hoax or a hoaxer. He isnt interrested in giving you stories and reports, he is more interrested in showing you his prowess at finding contradicting statements from witnesses, discrepencies in reports and spent quite a bit of time assassinating the character of just about every ufo investigator that isnt named Kevin Randle. Apparently he is the sole intelligence in a sea of bumbling idiots, liars and charlatans. The simple fact that he refers to the Project Blue Book files on more then one occasion as a source of solid reference on the subject forces me to question his motives because even an interested amateaur on the subject such as myself knows the Blue Book Files that are available to the public are the watered down reports that could easily be explained away, thats why they were made public. I think being a former military official has clouded or at the least impared his judgement on the motives of the military and government of this country. In other words, Mr. Randle believes everything his government tells him.
This could have been a great book and a fun read but it was neither. I simply grew more and more frustrated and agitated with him with every passing chapter. Iam glad i bought this book used and didnt waste my money on a new copy. I will not be wasting any more of my money or time on any of his books.

This book contains some great research and new information! No one is better than Kevin Randle at sniffing out all the dead ends and hot leads on UFO cases. He does a great job in this book noting which UFO cases are "genuine" and others that people should not be wasting their time on. My only suggestion for his next book is that he make the photos a little more useful; small B&W photos of the crash sites all looked the same. A middle portion with color photos would have been nice.

The book is very interesting to read. It amazes me why so much of the truth is hidden from the public. All the fakes kind of tells me that it's a way for the government to smear the reality of other beings in this universe. I gave it a four because after reading 3/4 of the book, it starts sounding the same over and over just different incidents. I started to lose some interest towards the end of the book. But for the most part, I'm very happy I bought and read this book!

UFO investigator and retired lieutenant colonel Kevin D. Randle presents Crash: When UFOs Fall from the Sky, a collection of research reports of alien spaceship crashes from 1947 and earlier to 2009. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this thoughtful, updated compendium of paranormal evidence and theory, which suggests possible solutions to some of the longest running enigmas about the possibility of extraterrestrial influence. From eyewitness testimony to paper trails to ongoing controversies, Crash: When UFOs Fall from the Sky is an invaluable compendium for anyone interested in learning about evidence of UFOs, and a welcome addition to paranormal studies shelves.

I picked up this book because of the attention it received via radio shows with the author on as a guest. I listened to the radio shows with the author and saw this book and thought the cover was awesome. Unfortunately, the cover was the best part of the book. This book is a case by case debunking of alleged UFO crashes. The author doesn't pretend anymore that he's not a debunker. He debunks everything from alien abduction to the claims of crashed UFOs, except for when the crashed UFO is Roswell and except when the research is his research. So we are to believe they are all hoaxes except for the Roswell crash and on top of it only his research should be believed. I think it's far past time for the UFO crowd to wake up as to the person the author, Kevin Randle is. My advice, don't buy this book. Don't even check out it out at the library. It's simply not worth your time.

What a terrible and disappointing book! I agree completely with reviewer Kenneth R. Barnwell when he says a proper title would be "'A History of UFO Crash Hoaxes,' since Mr. Randle takes great pride in trying to convince you that just about everything and everyone associated with crashed UFOs is a hoax or a hoaxer. He isn't interested in giving stories and reports, he's more interested in showing you his prowess at finding contradicting statements from witnesses, discrepencies in reports and assassinating the character of just about every UFO investigator who isn't named Kevin Randle." Exhausting in detail - though again, it's all about hoaxes and hoaxers - AND boring AND depressing. I suspected it after 25 pages, was certain after 100 - and still I read it to the end, hoping that at some point, if only for a little while, it would improve. It didn't. It's awful.

This book should be called "Kevin Randle's Great Book Of Hoaxes." He says that every case is either a hoax, or is misunderstood, except for the cases that he investigated of course. I have no idea why this guy is as popular as he is in the UFO community. He says negative and straight up rude comments about every investigator he comes across it seems and doesn't even give anybody but himself a chance. This book is a big waste of money, repetitive, and misleading. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody and I am definitely never buying another Kevin Randle book ever again.
