Top ten books about UFOs

Mark Pilkington is the author of Mirage Men: A Journey into Disinformation, Paranoia and UFOs: The Weird Truth Behind UFOs.

He named his top ten books about UFOs for the Guardian.

One title on the list:
The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by Edward J Ruppelt

An insider's account of the crucial, early days of the UFO story, by the man who headed the US Air Force's official UFO investigation from 1951 to 1953. Ruppelt documents shifting Air Force attitudes to the phenomenon, which ranged from aggressive denial to apparent endorsement of alien visitation in an infamous 1952 Life magazine article. In a revised edition, published in 1960, Ruppelt was more dismissive of the subject. He died the same year, aged 37.
