About his book, Gods of Eden, Bramley says: “I resumed my writing career at age twenty-six when I began the research that would culminate in my first book The Gods of Eden. I was still a college kid at heart with a penchant for digging into things and learning about the world, and that kept me at the task for seven years part-time. The first hardcover edition was released in 1989. I was sure that very few people would read it since I had wandered into strange territory indeed as the result of my attitude "go where the evidence leads." I was pleasantly surprised at the positive reception that it received.”
Although Bramley's book concerns UFOs, he says that he did not set out to write a book about UFOs but rather had spent seven years investigating the root causes of war before finally disclosing his startling conclusions. He says:
“There are few subjects today as full of false information, deceit, and madness as "flying saucers." Many earnest people who attempt to study the subject are driven around in circles by a terrific amount of dishonesty from a small number of people who, for the sake of a fleeting moment of notoriety or with the deliberate intention to obfuscate, have clouded the field with false reports, untenable "explanations," and fraudulent evidence. Suffice it to say that behind this smokescreen there is ample evidence of extraterrestrial visitations to Earth. This is too bad. An in-depth study of the UFO phenomenon reveals that it does not offer a happy little romp through the titillating unknown. The UFO appears more and more to be one of the grimmest realities ever confronted by the human race. — The Gods of Eden, pp.8-9.
