    1. The genuine granddaddy of all UFO books is also, after so many years it was originally written in 1956 , still one of best But there are frustrating moments As you read the book, you feel pulled in two directions Captain Ruppelt s Project Blue Book voice is a compelling one, in part due to his seemingly objective voice He attempts to investigate each incident thoroughly, despite severe limitations in budget and staff Things zip through the air lights, metallic objects , fighters scramble, confus [...]

    2. Sometimes you encounter a book that you can t quite classify A book that would never win any literary awards, yet which is so unique and illuminating and without peer in its subject field that reading it is profoundly satisfying and creates a cherished memory What Air Force Captain Edward J Ruppelt s dryly titled 1956 UFO classic, The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects, proves to me is that you don t have to write a good book to write a great one.His Report is like an ugly, old, long buried c [...]

    3. By age ten I was getting into UFOs There were stories about them in the papers and in such mainstream publications as Life and Look magazines Books about them occupied than a shelf at the Park Ridge Public Library and were prominently displayed on the revolving bookstands at the drugstores both at home in Illinois and at Knack s near grandmother s place in Michigan I read what I could find, including C.G Jung s bit, the most unusual of the lot, and maybe two of the unbelievable Adamski books as [...]

    4. This book was written by one of the people who was responsible for reports and investigations in Project Blue Book In the book, he gives his side of the story so to speak, about what went on with the investigations, what criteria were used to sort and categorize each investigated incident and what it means for the percentage of cases that were labeled as unknown It s dry reading but if you re interested in the subject there is no shortage of documented facts, people s names attached to incidents [...]

    5. This is a most unusual book.Originally published in 1956 by the former director of Project Bluebook, the U.S Air Force s controversial investigation into Unidentified Flying Objects UFO , the first seventeen chapters make the case that the Air Force too easily dismissed UFO reports and that many sightings could not be so easily debunked The last three chapters, written four years later for a second printing, then dismisses the UFO phenomena as little than popular myth.The author, Edward J Ruppe [...]

    6. Captain Edward J Ruppelt was the first director of Project Blue Book, and the man credited with coining the phrase UFO, Unidentified Flying Object Anyone interested in the history of ufology should find this book fascinating, as it is a peek behind the curtain at the Air Force s initial attempts to investigate UFO s The early days of Project Blue Book seemed to be off to a open minded start than what had preceded with the USAF s Project Grudge Blue Book eventually became an attempt to explain a [...]

    7. I feel that everyone who has an interest in the study of UFOs should read this book for a good grounding Too often do you find books with the sensationalist stories of those who want to force people to believe in extraterrestrial spacecraft, and on the other hand, there are many books by those who close their minds and claim without facts that all UFOs are easily explained by conventional causes Ruppelt s book represents the sane middle where common sense and an open mind meet The author certain [...]

    8. When I saw that I could download this classic of Ufology for a pittance on my Nook, I was very excited Edward Ruppelt was the head of the Air Force s UFO investigation, Project Blue Book, from 1951 1953 After leaving that post and retiring from the Air Force, he wrote a book reviewing his tenure And it makes for very fine reading I was particularly impressed by his fluid conversational style, it kind of makes we wish he d written before his untimely death from heart attack at age 37 Or, you kno [...]

    9. Available for free download at spiritofmaat ufo_tocm, which I heard about through a lecture on Sacred Geometry by Drunvalo Melchizedek.I found this a fascinating attempt at neutrality by a former skeptic in the military who presents how many hundreds of cases of UFO sightings in the late 40s early 50s he and his team of debunkers simply could not explain.

    10. Half way through this, I was saddened that a job like Ruppelt s is no longer available to be had Because leading a project like Project Blue Book would have been a blast Despite the sure frustration of the subject matter, the late nights, lost weekends deep into the work and everything else that went with the job Ruppelt recalls, I still think this would be a great way to earn a living This, especially back in the early days of the UFO phenomena, would have been even better Today, the field is s [...]
