Jim Marrs has been putting out high quality work for some time.  Backing his hard work with extensive research of over 30 years experience, Marrs has set the research bar high with books like The Rise Of The Fourth Reich, Rule By Secrecy, Our Occulted History, and Popular Control.  This book is no different.

Alien Agenda – Investigating The Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us is definitely one of the most seminal and top-tier no-nonsense books on UFOs out there.

In a realm of research that that is littered with countless books with not much sourced material, and even more witness and whistleblower testimony, this book is definitely near the top tier.

As a book for someone just getting in, this book is really top notch.  The only book I would recommend more personally would be Richard Dolan’s UFOs For The 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide To An Ancient Mystery.

Taking a thorough and methodical approach which is signature in all of his books, Marrs brings the reader along the journey of all things UFOlogy.  Notably, this book covers a wide breadth of the information within the UFO field.  From issues with NASA, to The Moon, Ancient Astronauts, to Roswell, and even intricate subjects like Area 51, Crop Circles, and some of the most widely known UFO accounts, Marrs sought to leave no stone unturned.  The book really is a veritable encyclopedia of much of this elusive and thought-provoking phenomena.

If the book only covered those above topics, that would still make it a great book, knowing reliance on sourced material Marrs employs.  But there’s more.  Marrs also covers abstruse subjects such as abductions & missing time, the CIA, MJ-12, cattle mutilations, remote viewing, and even takes a metaphysical gander into ‘the phenomenon’ that’s quite unique.  This book really employs a wide range.   Marrs even ventures into the role of big finance in this abstruse subject.

Another salient point is that this book is footnoted to the hilt!  That ALONE takes this to a whole different level, which is rarely achieved in UFOlogy except only by the best researchers.  That is one reason why my respect of Jim Marrs has only grown overtime, because he doesn’t just connect dots that people can’t verify themselves.

For everything it offers, this book offers a lot of value.  Anyone really interested in the subject would be doing themselves a great disservice by overlooking it.  This book is a must have.

Book Review: Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs

Our Occulted History is a phenomenal venture into the beginnings of ancient history, into the beginnings of an alternative history.

Jim Marrs, in this particular book, leaves no unturned, leaves no vault unchecked in his search for the origins of certain modern conspiracies.

Taking an approach that’s as deep in scope, as it is wide in breadth, Marrs trenchantly makes known mountains of evidence beginning from ancient antiquity all the way to our modern times which forms a vastly different structure of history than what we as a society have been taught.

Sampling research from heavyweight researchers such as Oxford educated Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert Bauval, Linda Moulton Howe, Philip Coppens, Robert Schoch, Michael Cremo, and many more, the author infuses the book with hundreds of verifiable data points.  That in and of itself might not seem like much, but when viewed from a larger point of view all of these dots and how Marrs connects them show how all this seemingly disparate information interconnects seamlessly.

Marrs covers wide-ranging subjects such as sacred geometry, the Sumerians, lost probes, the moon, forbidden archaeology, Tesla suppression, Coral Castle, Atlantis, the Dogon tribe, ancient civilizations of many types, Big Money, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Big Pharma, mainstream media, and dozens of others, to make a sound case that there is an occulted history to the human race, and its far more magnificent, and troubling than what most people could imagine.

That shouldn’t be surprising given how interconnected the media is to the establishment.

Speaking troublesomely about this lock-down information grid, Jim Keith notes in his landmark book Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness, citing the work of author G. William Domhoff in The Higher Circles:

The power elite have created and developed that wonderful field of public relations on an incredible scale.  Some of the early practitioners of this art helped scrub up the images of the ‘Robber Barons’ families; others specialized in the corporate image and the corporate image and corporate conscience.  Functionally speaking, the public relations departments of large corporations, in conjunction with the giant public relations firms that service many corporations, have become the early warning system of the upper class, picking up and countering the slightest remark or publication that makes funny lines on their sensitive radar.  Thanks to them public opinion is well-monitored, with an assist of course from the alert social scientists in certain university institutes financed by the big corporations and foundations.  wayward opinions, once detected, are duly corrected by a barrage of printed matter and public pronouncement…”[1]

Keeping everything discussed in mind, Marrs offers us a veritable glimpse into the annals of ancient past.  Admittedly, there is only so much an author can do, but Marrs more than pulled his weight.

Whether or not the reader will agree with his thesis, that being that the elite are covering up evidence of ancient aliens since ancient times, is up to the reader.  What can in fact be said without dispute is that humanity does in fact have an Occulted History and its implications are profoundly disturbing, even if Marrs main thesis is disagreed upon.

[Book Review] Lost Secrets Of The Gods – Essays By Marrs, Schoch, Redfern & Many More

Lost Secrets of the Gods had an interesting premise as a book.  However, this book was poorly executed.

While the book had some notable data to glean, it still falls really short given that many of the essays are weren’t as in-depth as they could have been, and the other essays do not push the envelope and play it safe.  A few were downright boring, and that’s not said lightly.  That’s actually sad considering the field of ancient civilizations et al is oft-riddled with mystery.

There were a few noteworthy essays though.  Predictably these are from Marrs, Frank Joseph and Redfern.

In a field where imagination and possibilities abound given how much isn’t known, this book felt rather run of the mill even for alternative research.

There is quite a bit of data to glean , it just depends on how much research someone has undertaken.

The book features information on Secret Societies, ‘Monsters’, Atlantis, Ancient Cosmologies, Giants in History, Ancient Astronaut Theory and much more.

Once one views those topics above, one would imagine that this book would be absolute dynamite.  And it could have been, but unfortunately it was quite lackluster.

If you are interested in any of the above topics, then would suggest researching any of the above topics in depth in individual books focusing on the specific subjects as much more information will be gathered/learned that way rather than giving them a cursory glance within this book.
