    1. During my recent stint at the Lousiana duck camp and on the plane to Long Beach I had the pleasure of reading the 2008 re-release of Dr. Jacques Vallee's challenging and essential book on the UFO phenomena.This book blew my mind. It was the first truly scientific approach to the issue, free of pseudoscience and physics vocabulary masquerading as intellect. Originally published in 1979, Messengers of Deception describes the social impacts of the UFO movement and reveals a serious issue with the c [...]

    2. UFOs creep me out. It's like going to bad neighborhood, or playing the Ouija board with Captain Howdy. Generally, I don't really like going "there." That said, if I do want to read something on them, Vallee (a computer scientist) is my guide of choice. When it comes to UFOs, he's idea guy, the one that asks the worthwhile questions. This particular effort is bit dated, though it is updated with a 2008 preface. As long as he sticks with the UFOs, it works, but when Vallee gets into various cults [...]

    3. Jacques Vallee takes as a given that UFOs exist. What he doesn't assume is that UFOs are space aliens."Messengers of Deception" is a thoughtful, well reasoned examination of UFO cults and the contatee subculture. While he doesn't claim to know what UFOs are, Vallee makes a strong case that they have a terrestrial origin and are instruments of social control. He casts a dyspeptic eye on flaky '70's religious sects, like the Raelians , and hey, wait a minute, is that Marshall Applewhite?! His main [...]

    4. Since this was written in 1979, some of what Vallee discusses seems dated. The the cattle mutilation scare and the Satanic cult hysteria would peak in the years after this book, and fizzle out. The notoriety of UFO cults has also waned in the intervening years. Vallee makes prescient observations about the overall direction of society, however. He was already noting the growing distrust and suspicion against scientific rationality and reason, and the nascent stages of a conspiracy theory culture [...]

    5. Lucid and skeptical, just how I like subjects like this to be treated. The investigator Vallee apparently finished this book without deciding to choose an explanation for the patterns of phenomena he tracks. This is, in my opinion, honorable of him, as he writes candidly about a number of models that could explain the events but never hesitates to point out the holes in these explanations.At least, I think thats what this book is like. I dont really remember too well. All I remember is I was rea [...]

    6. This book might better be categorized under the social sciences as it is a study of beliefs about UFOs and non-human intelligences. Vallée has long held the position that the idea that UFOs are extraterrestrial is absurd, but that experiences of non-human intelligences and of what are interpreted to be UFOs nowadays do occur with substantial frequency. "What are they doing--what do they mean?" he asks. He asks more questions than he answers. This book has a strain of paranoia to it greater than [...]

    7. Impressive read with unconventional theories as to the origin, intention, and overall impact of the UFO phenomenon. Just think what it would mean if UFO's turned out to be intra or interplanetary. The implications are just as interesting especially if it is found that the source of such remarkable technology and capability was on earth or at least within our own dimension all along. Imagine the possibilities for mankind!

    8. I want to be Jacques Vallée when I grow up. A fascinating time capsule of the UFOlogy scene in the late 70s with a concentration in who is behind the UFO phenomenon. Smack dab in the center of my Venn diagram set of interests: UFOs/ultraterrestrials, occult/religious movements, and government conspiracies/espionage. Ashamed I did not read more Vallée before now.

    9. Excellent cover of the subject by the author. He takes a scientific approach, without having the bias of many scientists. He applies the scientific method to a so-called "non-scientific" subject.The author does not claim to know the answers, but he offers his hypotheses and at the same time dismisses many delusional and emotional interpretations.Honest and thought provoking.
