Even though I do not agree with the author’s conclusions, he is a fantastic writer and presents his case in a very convincing manner. The 12 chapters and the lengthy introduction cover an enormous amount of material. There is no question the author has devoted a lot of time to researching this topic. Chapter one covers “The greatest UFO?” This refers to theories about our moon. Chapter two explores the ancient astronauts’ hypothesis. Chapter three deals with the military observers of UFOs. Chapter four focuses on the Roswell crash and other interesting topics. Chapter five covers “plausible deniability” on the UFO topic. Chapter six explores UFOs underground. Face to face encounters are dealt with in chapter seven. Chapter 8 was very interesting about missing time and the UFO abduction myths. “Death from the sky” was covered in chapter nine. Crop circles were focused on in chapter ten. Chapter 11 explored “in the mind’s eye” UFO cases. The final chapter provides a metaphysical approach to the UFO phenomena. The epilogue covers new realities.
In conclusion, whether you are a skeptic or a believer you will find this book interesting and informative. Even though the author is clearly a believer in the esoteric aspects of the UFO mythology; nevertheless, he presents his case in a way that makes this a very readable and fun book to read. It made me smile and even laugh at times at some of the theories made about UFOs.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician: A critical review of Politics and Politians).
Amazing book and amazing information.. recommended buy.
He's provided a good historical review, as well as a complete treatment of contemporary high profile cases: Roswell, Bentwaters, the Hills, Travis Walton are explained in a succinct and compelling manner. A good starting place for the casual reader of UFO books.
Why only 3 stars? Three reasons:  A good attempt to present both sides of the argument, but weak on hard evidence.  Marrs waivers from the main subject matter, stretching Fortean-like into unrelated phenomena like the Wee Folk (the reader gets the impression that the book might have fallen short of its 400 pages without these little forays).  The thesis presented in his final chapter is an uncovincing stretch, leading one to wonder if he stayed up a wee bit too late finishing it.
These criticisms aside, 'Alien Agenda' should prove an interesting read.
