Testimonials from Reader's:


At first I was not sure what to expect from this book, but as I began reading, it dawned on me the huge amount of research that went into compiling and writing the book.
The book is packed with information, about ALIEN RACES,ORGANIZATIONS,THE STARS AND THE UNIVERSE,LIGHT WORKERS,and other information.
IMHO this book is "THE HANDBOOK" for the commited researcher, and for those who are searching for information regarding the Alien enigma.

Extraterrestrial Races, Who is Who

This review is from: An Overview of Extraterrestrial Races: Who is Who in the Greatest Game of History (Paperback) This compendium is an excellant resource. I found it quite extensive and informative. I actually found it quite amazing that all this information is known but is officially ignored. For anybody with an interest in the other inhabitants of our universe this book is a must have. I also found the art to be very compelling and wished there was more.

Incredible amount of information
Without at least some knowledge concerning extraterrestrials ( modern / ancient ) this book might be perceived by a few readers as somewhat science fictional, but its not. It contains an incredible amount of information, some obviously from a metaphysical viewpoint. I don't think this book is meant to be an easy read, after all it is a catalog, all in alphabetical order, refreshingly accompanied by fascinating alien art and poems. If the reader is not familiar with Ezekiels encounter with "god", unfortunately that poem wouldn't make much sense. The whole biblical event from a ufological perspective. Outstanding! "An Overview of Extraterrestrial Races" is simply a must have for any ET enthusiasts, to have an open mind would be helpful.

An Important Reference Book with a Metaphysical Perspective

There is a lot that can be said about this book, both good and bad.

The english translation is not great, with numerous instances of odd grammar and usage and occasional spelling errors. The information in the book is stuff I came across during the nineties when I was more actively involved with interviewing abductees/experiencers/contactees, reading the UFO literature (including some channeled information), and researching the UFO contact phenomenon from a variety of perspectives, all in an effort to determine the number of different alien races interacting with out planet, what they look like, and how they relate to each other. Having a book like this fifteen years ago might have saved me some leg work. However, it is important that the information in Waeber's book not be taken too literally, as it contains some internal contradictions, as well as apparent contradictions with established science in subjects such as biology, physics and planetary history.

The source material for the book is varied and that may be part of the reason for the seeming inconsistencies, as many different systems of nomenclature have emerged for trying to classify the intelligences behind UFOs. The book contains references to contact cases described in the UFO literature, such as Riley Martin's "The Coming of Tan" and Phillip H. Krapf's "The Contact Has Begun," but especially noticeable is a heavy reliance on channeled information, which cannot be corroborated, except in the sense that many different channels seem to get similar information, pointing perhaps to a common source, possibly connected with the intelligence behind the physical phenomenon of UFOs, but without offering us a means of determining veracity.

The book contains several nice pieces of artwork by Yeva, but the printing quality is mediocre and only the cover image is in color. I would have liked to see illustrations for the numerous alien races that are briefly described in the text, as well as for the various stories about alien bases, alien homeworlds and galactic history. However, to do a thoroughly illustrated version of this book would have been a much greater undertaking. If you want a similar book (although without the metaphysical bent) with more illustrations, I would recommend Ronald D. Story's "The Encyclopedia of Extraterrestrial Encounters."

With its metaphysical perspective, this book is in a similar vein to Lyssa Royal's "The Prism of Lyra" and "Visitors From Within." As such, it stimulates thought and is really an essential overview of extraterrestrial races, or at least of the lore that has built up about them. I am grateful that someone has finally taken the time to assemble and publish a book like this. (I know of efforts to do a project like this in the nineties but those did not come to fruition.) I recommend Rolf Waeber's book to any serious student of the UFO phenomenon, but with the caveat that you also consider other approaches to the question of "Who is Who" among our visitors.

Many things, many information are given.
I liked it so much.
I wish a great success for the author.

This Book can be termed as a mini encyclopedia on the subjects of extra terrestrial, supernatural, aliens, Gods and Goddesses of different regions, etc. If anyone is interested in these subjects this book comes handy for further internet searches. A unique concept devised by the author to enable a student or a researcher on further studies.
This book proves to be an amazing compilation of an extensive research by the author.
I for one have been quite informed with the book. And recommend others to read it as well. Though, there is a disappointment on English translation. In all I found the experience quite exciting and enriching. Regards, Preeti Sharma

... Had a brief look at the Lexikon and was most suprised to see the word Assyrians in it, studied the Classics and recognised the word. Some names are Greek and recognised those too. This is an unbelievable book and have never read anything similar. I was writing about beatings/smacks against children today, and did not have the time to start reading it, but tomorrow will set aside time to read at least 100 pages!!.
I am sure I have much to learn from you and from your books and I am indebted to you for your kindness ...

Hallo Rolf, danke für die Info. Dein Buch hab ich mir mal bei Amazon bestellt. Mit deiner Auskunft hast meine Vermutung über diesen Rael schon bestätigt ;-) Aber davon mal abgesehen, hast du vielleicht die NASA/ESA Mission "Kepler" verfolgt? Vor etwa 1 1/2 Jahren wurde das Weltraumteleskop Kepler gestartet. Es ist extra zur Suche nach "Exoplaneten" konzipiert worden. Bis heute hat es über 1200 Planeten ausgemacht, davon weisen 5 sogar Ähnlichkeiten mit der Erde auf. Aufgrund dieser Daten schätzen NASA-Wissenschaftler die Gesamtzahl der Planeten innerhalb der Milchstraße auf zirka 50 Mrd (!) . 500 Millionen davon könnten sich sogar in einem Bereich ihrer Sonne befinden, in dem das Vorhandensein von flüssigem Wasser möglich ist ( die sogenannte "habitable Zone" ). Wenn man mal davon ausgeht, dass sich auf nur 10% davon Leben (zumindest in einer Form, wie wir es kennen) entwickeln konnte, bleiben immer noch 50 Millionen Planeten auf denen eine technisch hochentwickelte Zivilisation existieren oder noch entstehen könnte. Damit ist es doch sehr unwahrscheinlich, dass wir die Einzigen sein sollen, die sich in der Milchstraße befinden. Herzliche Grüße, Jürgen

Great Book! Probably the most informative dictionary/encyclopedia available.
Rolf, I have the paperback. Can you help me get an ebook copy? Of course I will pay for it. Thanks Greg
Thanks Rolf! This book is really the best on the market. I reference it alot..!

Benjamin Munoz, Ney York, USA, October 14, 2011
The most comprehensive book on several subjects, not only ET's.
I have read dozens of books about the subject and definitively this is the best. What is rare about this book is the many subjects it covers from ET's,astronomy,history, to the involvement and efforts of men to try to understand this complicated issue.
My sincere thanks to Mr. Waeber for his efforts to give us such a valuable information in such a fascinating, easy to read book.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Overview of Extraterrestrial Races: Who Is Who in the Greatest Game of History (Taschenbuch)

Rolf Waeber bietet mit seinem recht umfangreichen, englischsprachigen Werk eine systematische Übersicht über die Spezies und Wesen, die bis zur Drucklegung (die Ausgabe ist von 2005) laut Angaben von Contactees aus aller Welt bislang - vorwiegend telepathisch - mit Menschen kommuniziert haben.

Ihre Botschaft: Die Menschen der Erde sind eingeladen, Mitglieder einer Galaktischen Gemeinschaft zu werden und am spirituell, sozial und technisch hohen Entwicklungsstand der anderen Völker teilzuhaben. Dem Planeten und der Menschheit steht ein wichtiger Entwicklungsschritt zu einer höheren Daseinsform bevor.
Damit verbunden ist häufig Kritik an der gegenwärtigen Lebensweise der Menschen, insbesondere an Ungerechtigkeit, Krieg, geistiger Bevormundung, Nukleartechnik, rücksichtslosem Umgang mit Mitgeschöpfen und Umweltverschmutzung. Hinzu kommt ein ganzes System esoterischer Denkgebäude.

Abbildungen der behandelten Spezies und Personen sucht man, das ist das größte Manko des Buches, allerdings vergebens; es ist im Grunde ein riesiges Register mit meist sehr knappen Informationen zu jedem Stichwort. Nur jeweils zu Anfang der einzelnen Kapitel findet sich die Schwarzweiß-Version einer künstlerischen Darstellung zum Thema.
Übrigens, das Buch zwar wegen seiner Pappbindung als "Taschenbuch" eingestuft, hat aber mittelgroßes Lexikon-Format (18 x 26,5 cm, 400 Seiten).

Wer sich viel mit Channeling und Alien-Kontakten befasst, findet hier ein sorgfältig erarbeitetes, wertvolles Nachschlagewerk.

Wer sich erst in die Materie einlesen möchte und auf eine bebilderte Einführung ins Thema hofft, wird dagegen enttäuscht und von einer Flut an (gelegentlich einander widersprechenden) Informationen über die exotischsten Wesen samt ihrer angeblich ihrem jeweiligen Medium übermittelten Botschaft (und manchmal auch Familiengeschichte) überschwemmt.

Und wer ein eher wissenschaftliches Interesse am Thema Außerirdische hat, wird die hier gegebenen Informationen als eine Ansammlung von blühenden Phantastereien empfinden, und das Buch befremdet beiseite legen.

Alles in allem: Sehr speziell. Nur wer bereits eine Bibliothek von telepathischen Übermittlungen zum Thema hat und als Ergänzung eine systematische Übersicht der diversen Botschaften und ihrer Urheber sucht, die es erlaubt, sich ein Gesamtbild zu erarbeiten, hat hiermit einen Volltreffer gelandet. Oder wer plötzlich selber (angeblich) von einem solchen Wesen kontaktiert wird und nachsehen möchte, ob und wie die eigene Erfahrung ins Gesamt aller bisherigen Kontakte einzuordnen ist

Dear Rolf

I have a copy of your book on Extra- terrestrial civilisations. I do research on UFOs myself and am fascinated as to the detail in the book and how you came about it.
I am in the process of finishing my second book (of a Trilogy) and will be publishing it with Trafford. So any advice there would also be of help.
... about so many things related to UFOs and ETs

Great! Four stars.

Hey Brother Rolf, I bought your book "Who is who in the greatest game of history" literally ten years ago and it changed my life. I already knew about extraterrestrials before that but you put it in prespective for me and I am forever grateful but I would like to incorporate some of your theories in that book into a movie. I have a general outline and idea. Do you come to Los Angeles often or ever? I am like you, in the fact that I do anti aging medicine and I am very interested in the ibogaine retreat. There is one beneath California in Mexico that I was going to attend. I am a fan of Switzterland so it'd be an honor to visit you there. ... You literally documented my entire life in that book you wrote about aliens, brother. I am forever grateful. I will do my part in the states to build up my filmmaking skill because I believe we can create an entire new mythos together, brother. I don't know you and have never met you but I thank you and I love you for that book. So what do you say? I dare you to come along with me and join me to create this new mythos and make history. You can be the Joseph Campbell to my George Lucas. If you don't understand what I mean then just google that or youtube it. I look forward to hearing from you.
