Publisher's Summary

The first volume of Selected by Extraterrestrials took the life of Bill Tompkins up to 1970 and did not go deeply into the super-secret briefings he attended by Navy spies reporting on what was going on in Nazi Germany from 1942-1945. In this second volume of his ground-breaking memoirs, we learn those details and more about his subsequent aerospace career at companies that included TRW. Here is a record of words that Bill Tompkins wrote about his life until his death in 2017. 

Of special interest are his detailed access to work being done by TRW, such as aggressive remote viewing projects and the early Bobby Ray Inman involvement, extensive underground alien and US tunneling systems, and the interesting role TRW played in the content of movies. He oversaw the famous Joe Papp engine development, one of many systems studied by TRW that did not use petroleum.   

Bill was a teenager when the Navy took his personal ship models out of a Hollywood department store because they showed the classified locations of radars and gun emplacements. He was present at the “Battle of LA” when 1430 rounds were fired at UFOs, and he claims one of the Nordic craft selected him to be their rep in the evolving aerospace race. After working at North American Aviation and Northrop, he was hired by Douglas Aircraft Company in 1950, and when they found out about his involvement in classified work, was given a job as a draftsman with a peripheral assignment to work in a Think Tank. It was controlled by Navy personnel such as Bobby Ray Inman who used to work for James Forrestal and later developed what later became the “Solar Warden” secret spacecraft system. 

This story is peppered with very personal interactions with his co-workers and secretaries, some of whom he believes were Nordic aliens helping the “good guys” here on Earth. He sketched alien craft he personally saw on TV when Armstrong was landing on the Moon. Bill Tompkins confirms the existence of a secret space program today.

A Fairy Tale

They began to lose me with the “Remote Viewing” and completely lost me with the mermaids. I hung in there to the end. I would say don’t waste your time on this book.

Disappointing, disjointed and mentally exhausting

Although Mr Tompkins’ credentials may be impressive in our aerospace history, it is sad to realize that you can use real credentials and a foundational set of true facts (and credible based on historic facts) and extrapolate freely and without a shred of evidence and logical connection like he does in both his books. Mr. Tompkins is obviously very proud of his career, had a sizable ego, and nostalgia about his contribution to space exploration tech development. He obviously has an interest for UFOs and Aliens topic which he most likely researched and read like all of us. But it is evident that he is extrapolating in a novel-like story telling bits and pieces of extraordinary statements that anyone with a shred of perspective and knowledge on how technology is really developed and manufactured can detect. The readers should try to learn more about how the defense contractor world works, what it takes to develop and perfect new technologies, build massive technology and equipment, the supply chain it requires (which you dont find on Mars and on the moon). This would help the reader to understand that this is a lot of fiction and wishful story telling, connecting other books and stories we can find on the internet, mixed in with his past history. He obviously was a designer and a thinker, but most likely not so much grounded on what it takes to make a concept a reality and a reliable one (let alone all the different challenges of space travels that needs to be addressed before you build spaceships and moon bases).

For example; one minute he is proudly stating that the endeavor of going to the moon back in the 60’s-70’s was the biggest technological achievement of human kind. A few sentences later, he describes kilometer-long space ships and even armadas of ships with amazing space exploration capabilities as if it was nothing. Its MULTIPLE orders of magnitude more impressive achievement. Do you realize how many crew member would be needed to man such huge ship? And why so big? With all his obvious pride, he described how it took 200,000 people for NASA to build the space program back in the 60-70’s. Can anyone imagine the manufacturing infrastructure and human capital needed to build an fleet of KM long ship(s)?! The raw material ressource alone cannot even start to add up. We barely can liftoff without crashing our rockets still in 2022. Really, in 1950-60 they figured out all this tech in no time? Ridiculous. Books like this gives WAY too much credit to the capabilities of our government. Let alone that we cannot even get along on small things in 2022 among different countries, now there is worldwide agreements and respect of massive secrets like this without massive leaks? It is statistically impossible to have so many people involved in massive secrets and projects and keep it secrets. We cannot even keep our own fighter jets drawings secrets from the our foreign hacking friends…

This is sad to see someone with such serious and real contribution to our space exploration history lead on people based on his credential. Serious people with a minimum of knowledge on how things are made see this book as a disjointed mix of “old timer” reminiscing facts added with a lot of extrapolated fiction.

On top of that, this specific book is not coherent and cohesive. Its a collections of unrelated topics and stories, interlaced with some sexual fantasies (hopefully for his wife at the time) about his old secretaries back when it was apparently permitted to flirt and hit on your female colleagues. I am sure he did not publish his books/stories when his wife was still alive.

A book to help you wake-up to the true reality

loved it and couldn't put the book down until I finished it. It's a book that will help you to wake up to so much that has been hidden from the public.

if truth is there; it's hidden in plausible denial

half is good, half is obviously written as a comic book story.....who was writing the files they always seam to have on Intel...? also secretary knows way to much be real top secret... not worth the read just watch his interviews.

Story of a UFO - ET insider's insider

On the negative side... Bill sometimes writes like a teenager, emphasizing his incredible glamor to extraterrestrial Nordic secretaries and loves to pat himself on the back. Uses the expression "... On the planet" far too much... wherever possible.

I still gave this 5 stars for all the insights that are in these pages. He is a top independent witness to much of the tech side of the "black ops" UFO, reverse engineering and ET world of his time.

Not as good as the first volume

This is a subject that really requires someone to somehow establish facts and correlate information between individuals. Not really impressed. The first book was more believable and the circumstances were more believable. Need more information. Somehow need more proof on this subject. I would buy volume three though....
