This book was very hard to follow. The information was clear but following where the author was going was difficult. Great Conspiracy book. ( )

On page 196 of BEHOLD A PALE HORSE, in a chapter titled “The Secret Government”, William Cooper states that between “January 1947 and December 1952 at least 16 crashed or downed alien craft, 65 alien bodies, and one live alien were recovered. The wreckage and carnage didn’t stop there. My complete review of BEHOLD A PALE HORSE is available at my book review blog: http://www.tgblogger.com/?p=679. ( )

I’d recommend this book because it’s fascinating to anybody with an interest in American government. Even if you don’t agree with William Cooper’s ideas (and I certainly didn’t agree with many of them), it’s an interesting read and an excellent jumping-off point for additional research of your own.

I initially picked up this book because I love reading about UFOs, and I was interested in reading about them from the perspective of an “inside” man. In that respect, I was disappointed, only because I feel the description on the back of the book misrepresented what it was about. Basically, this is a book positing Cooper’s theory that the Illuminati control the world (although there are many other things in it as well, UFOs included).

It’s hard to take this book seriously because of the poor writing, disorganization, and slightly underhanded comments scattered throughout the text. I think I would have enjoyed this so much more (and it would have been more credible) had the research been well-organized and rational, without Cooper’s numerous ad hominem mini-diatribes directed at those who do not share his views.

If you’re really interested in this subject matter, I’d recommend this book simply because William Cooper is a fairly prominent figure in conspiracy theory, and familiarity with his beliefs can’t be a bad thing, especially if you’re like me and enjoy doing your own research after reading a book. At the very least, it will make you think -- and if you’re a diehard skeptic, you’ll enjoy rolling your eyes at it. ( )

Book description
Bill Cooper, former United States Naval Intelligence Briefing Team member, reveals information that remains hidden from the public eye. This information has been kept in topsecret government files since the 1940s. His audiences hear the truth unfold as he writes about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the war on drugs, the secret government, and UFOs. Bill is a lucid, rational, and powerful speaker whose intent is to inform and to empower his audience. Standing room only is normal. His presentation and information transcend partisan affiliations as he clearly addresses issues in a way that has a striking impact on listeners of all backgrounds and interests. He has spoken to many groups throughout the United States and has appeared regularly on many radio talk shows and on television. In 1988 Bill decided to "talk" due to events then taking place worldwide, events that he had seen plans for back in the early 1970s. Bill correctly predicted the lowering of the Iron Curtain, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the invasion of Panama. All Bill's predictions were on record well before the events occurred. Bill is not a psychic. His information comes from top secret documents that he read while with the Intelligence Briefing Team and from over seventeen years of research.
