In her book UFOs – Generals, Pilots & Government Officials Go On Record, Leslie Kean lays an ironclad foundation to the subject of unidentified flying objects [UFOs].
The author and contributors do a rather compelling job of outlining the main components of each of the respective incidents discussed, and doing so in a way that’s reasonable, yet thought provoking. Kean also discusses various other pertinent issues regarding the UFO phenomena.
Many of the best known UFO sightings are showcased by Kean. Some of the most notable sightings discussed in the book range from the more recent Phoenix Lights incident, which of course officials say were “flares” [who buys that?], to the older and yet just as compelling Belgian UFO wave. Another rather salient encounter that has been covered at length by other researcher but is one with extensive credibility is the Rendelsham Forest incident. Of course, there are many more significant sightings that are distilled by the author/contributors which people should know about.
Coupled with the above information Kean also dabbles into part of UFOlogys history, such as the nascent stages of COMETA et al.
That said, given some of the more well known sightings, veteran researchers and readers will undoubtedly know most if not all of the information provided. That really depends on how much research a given person has put into this field.
That is not the say the book does not have plenty to offer, because it does. It’s just that the author focuses on many of the most well known incidents, which many folks will be familiar with. Still, Kean does an exemplary job of bringing lucidity to a field that has long sought for it, and doing so in a scholarly manner.
Kean precision is seen by how she buttresses her book, which is with the most concrete evidence that’s available.
Curiously, for a book that tackles the ‘fringe’, it does seem to play it safe however. That’s the ‘feel’ that one gets from the author. For how well executed certain parts of the book were, others felt as if though she had bulls-eyes right in front of her, but she didn’t lay out possibilities in their greatest extent. In that way, the book feels like a ‘controlled’ release of information of already-sifted-through phenomena, and in that sense, it wouldn’t ‘make any waves’.
Its ironic because many people mentioned that this was “the book” that would change everything. And don’t give me wrong, this is a great book. And it will certainly open its fair share of eyes just by its existence. Still, the information covered has been discussed by countless more authors out there, and in that sense, it could have more significant anchors. All things considered, the credibility the author brings to the subject should be taken very seriously.
The collection of testimonies does give a preponderance of evidence – given the veracity of the witnesses et al. – that something within our world is amiss.
Without a doubt, the book is an excellent starting point for those who wish to delve into this abstruse subject, and would serve as a great reference for veteran researchers in the field, or anyone else interested in this fascinating subject. In fact, the book would serve as an excellent springboard when read before Richard Dolan’s UFOs And The National Security State, which for all intents and purposes is the unofficial Encyclopedia to a modern UFO phenomena.
All in all, given the importance of the information, everyone should read this book. Everyone.
As humanity continues to slowly seep into space, more and more UFO sightings will continue taking place. Questions such as: Who is behind these sightings? Why are these sightings taking place? Is it us, them, or…? And if its them, where do they come from, and how long have they been here, and elsewhere?
Those are just an iota of of the handful of the many questions humanity will have to contend with as we move towards a more technologically advanced culture.
This book begins shedding light for the common populace to see that there really is something taking place in our skies, and probably beyond.
That alone is worth the price of the book.
And if just a fraction of what’s being stated here is true – and keep in mind the credibility of these individuals is top-notch – then the world already is a vastly different place than what we have been taught.
And if that’s the case, what else don’t we know?
