This book is extreme interesting. This book along with "Aliens/UFOs are being forced, by God, to land on the Earth. The Bible declares it!" puts everything in a perspective of reality. I know these things exist and the other book explains why this is happening and why a landing is imminent. That book can be found at Amazon.com. Read it, you won't be disappointed.

As you've never understood it. This book explains a lot of things that really never made sense re: the UFO cover-up; technical advances; inside workings of government. The writer indulges in a bit of puffery that Col. Corso probably never intended - one senses he is a very private person - but there's a hell of a lot to be learned here - take it in small pieces & digest well.
Publishers Weekly, 1997-06-02 Never mind a crashed saucer with dead aliens strewn around it. Corso has bigger news to impart: that alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N.Mex., in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, and laser and fiber optic technologies, among other marvelsŠand that he knows this because he was in charge of distributing the harvest. Senator Strom Thurmond offers a foreword that will reassure readers that Corso is in fact a real person, and a patriot. Curiously, Corso first learned of the Roswell incident when, on July 6, 1947, he saw one of the alien bodies, which was en route to Air Materiel Command in Ohio. Fourteen years later, as the newly appointed head of the Foreign Technology Desk in Army R&D at the Pentagon, he "inherited" a file cabinet filled with Roswell debris. He details the "program" by which the debris and/or its technologies were released to defense contractors (and ascribes the invention of the transistor to discussions among Wernher von Braun, Bell Lab technicians and others regarding "silicon wafers from the Roswell crash"); he also explores the government's cover-up of the UFO phenomenon. Despite flashes of paranoia (e.g., of a KGB-manipulated "secret government within the [U.S.] government"), in general Corso comes off as calm, sober and rational. His claims are so outlandish, though, that the many readers he's going to attract likely will have difficulty discerning whether they are reading a hoax, ravings or the biggest story of the century.
