In UFOs & The National Security State: Chronology Of A Cover-up – Volume 1, Richard Dolan carried out his opening salvo into the field of UFOlogy.  Seeking a veritable encyclopedia  of verifiable UFO sightings and never finding one, Dolan wrote a book based upon all data he collated from all the previous research he had undertaken.  In essence, he wrote the book he was looking for in UFOlogy, but wasn’t available.

In UFO’s & The National Security State – Volume 2, Dolan further cemented himself as a genuine historian by buttressing his previous work with another landmark piece.  Like his other books, this book is sourced to the hilt, which is appreciated for those seeking to venture further into the abstruse.  Moreover, this book is also the book in which the term “Breakaway Civilization” was coined.  A notable point to be sure, because that idea has been used by others seeking truth within this field and others, and it’s helped shed light into darker areas in this field.  What’s more, the ‘encyclopedia’ that Dolan began in volume one continued.

Thence, in A.D. After Disclosure, Dolan and his author Bryce Zabel sought to examine how the day after “the Others” are announced might play out, and they carry out the examination in salient fashion.  This book features a very sober analysis to many of the probable scenarios that will play out in a post-disclosure worked.  Anyone seeking to understand the possibilities such a sobering day will bring should ruminate upon getting this book.

Now, in UFOs For The 21st Century Mind, Dolan wrote a book to grapple the mind of newer generations and readers, the unexposed minds, the interested minds that have long sought to dive into “the phenomenon” but didn’t know where to start.

Along this stream of thought, this book strikingly brings about a fresh new look at UFOs, with modern eyes, employing a much broader perspective and dataset than the average UFO book.  Dolan doesn’t simply stick to classic sightings, abductions and declassified documents, but goes beyond to ruminate upon the realm of consciousness, quantum entanglement and more.  This book really is an up-to-date assessment of the situation from a multiplicity of angles.

Dolan begins the book by examining what UFOs could be by guiding the reader closer to the subject thoughtful and yet trenchant manner.  This helps the reader familiarize themselves with the subject and come to realize that there are a variety of explanations for UFO phenomena, many of which do not get considered   at length, if at all.  Additionally, this is also crucial because many individuals still continue to experience the phenomena in a variety of ways, and yet there aren’t any official channels to seek help from.

In Dolan’s own words:

“Whether or not you consider UFOs to be nonsense or of great importance, people are seeing things that are affecting them deeply.  Because there are no institutional structures for them to report or discuss what they see, they often keep silent, and try to forget or only secretly cherish one of the most incredible experiences of their lives.”[1]

Dolan, however, doesn’t shy away from the fact that this is a very serious issue.  While ruminating deeply upon it, he ponders reasons both pro and con that will help bring lucidity to a situation often bathed in shadows.  In fact, implications in the fields of economy, politics, religion, culture and science are given a cursory overview early on, and then are covered at length later in the book.  Dolan doesn’t merely stop there, though.

Journeying back in time, Dolan goes on to explore this phenomenon all the way back into ancient times and attempts to separate the wheat from the chaff.  This is important because it shows UFOs aren’t merely a modern phenomena.   In addition, salient subjects such as pyramids, lost civilizations, and ancient images goes to show that there probably is more than meets the eye within this field.

Interestingly, we know that some pyramids contain astronomical data.  This is particularly interesting because when this information is taken in conjunction with much of the lore and myths that abound those structures, and the fact that there’s hundreds of pyramids around the globe, and the fact that many of the core of the myths echoes nigh carbon copy traditions,  it should bring one pause.  Granted, it’s not proof, but very suggestive evidence nonetheless.

What’s more, some ancient writings seem to have what could be descriptions of ancient technology, such as the passage from Ezekiel, from the Bible, which Josef Blumrich, former NASA employee, sought to debunk.

Ironically, in the book The Spaceships of Ezekiel:

“Blumrich presented technical specifications of the spacecraft that he argued, fit Ezekiel’s description perfectly.  Of course, we should remember that Ezekiel presumably was describing something well beyond his experience for his time 2,500 years ago.  If he did see a descending spacecraft, he would have lacked the language or technological understanding to describe it in any way other than he did.”[2]

Later in the book, Dolan brings the reader up to more modern times when he examines a distinct array of sightings  and issues from the time.  These include ghost rockets, the Airship mysteries, which are rather fascinating in fact, the Minot case, the Malmstrom case, airspace violations and more.  Subsequent to that that, Dolan grapples with the issue of pervasive secrecy which he ruminates upon at length, and all that that entailed.  Many of the classics – Kecksburg, Aztec, Roswell – are also given a cursory glance.

But it doesn’t stop there.  Other significant incidents of “High Strangeness” get examined, such as some famous sightings around the globe, encounters with these beings, abductions [i.e. Travis Walton & Betty & Barney Hill] and even some crash retrievals.  All of this coalesces to allow the reader to note that there’s more than ample evidence to show that the phenomena not only existed for many decades, but was taken extremely seriously by those in the upper echelons of society.

Dolan also makes sure to hone in on quite of few aspects of the early period within UFOlogy’s history.  Here he covers everything from the blatant cover that took place behind the scenes, FOIA requests, the penetration of UFO groups by intelligence agencies and even touches upon the need for more people to get involved in a more serious manner.

This call to arms isn’t to be taken lightly because, as Dolan intimates:

“…a proper study of UFOs is a revolutionary experience.  It shatters old belief systems and forces us to look at our world in a completely new way.  Everything is affected: history, politics, economics, science, religion, culture, and our ultimate vision of who and what we are as human beings.”[3]

This subject seeps into all aspects of life, which is why it should be taken seriously.  When all collated information Dolan has amassed is pondered at length and given a fair shot, it is impossible not see something is going on.  Deeper truths lie locked-up within the rabbit holes of the field.  Undoubtedly, whenever some of these truths arise they will change the face of the world over night.  Those that are researching this field will be ahead of the pack in understanding the phenomenon and much of the disinformation that will also come regarding it, in the future.  That is another point to consider why this book should be read.

This subject is too important to overlook, and if humanity is ever going to prepare itself to live in a post-disclosure era, it is important to know the history of this subject and its implications.  If you’ve never read a book on this subject in your life, make this your first one.  You will not regret it.  As someone whose read over three dozen books on the subject, nothing else comes close to be this comprehensive while also being sober and realistic. Simply stated, if you want a book that is accessible to lay person, but also stimulating enough to get your brain cells churning, get this book.

Book Review: Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs

AlienAgenda

Jim Marrs has been putting out high quality work for some time.  Backing his hard work with extensive research of over 30 years experience, Marrs has set the research bar high with books like The Rise Of The Fourth Reich, Rule By Secrecy, Our Occulted History, and Popular Control.  This book is no different.

Alien Agenda – Investigating The Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us is definitely one of the most seminal and top-tier no-nonsense books on UFOs out there.

In a realm of research that that is littered with countless books with not much sourced material, and even more witness and whistleblower testimony, this book is definitely near the top tier.

As a book for someone just getting in, this book is really top notch.  The only book I would recommend more personally would be Richard Dolan’s UFOs For The 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide To An Ancient Mystery.

Taking a thorough and methodical approach which is signature in all of his books, Marrs brings the reader along the journey of all things UFOlogy.  Notably, this book covers a wide breadth of the information within the UFO field.  From issues with NASA, to The Moon, Ancient Astronauts, to Roswell, and even intricate subjects like Area 51, Crop Circles, and some of the most widely known UFO accounts, Marrs sought to leave no stone unturned.  The book really is a veritable encyclopedia of much of this elusive and thought-provoking phenomena.

If the book only covered those above topics, that would still make it a great book, knowing reliance on sourced material Marrs employs.  But there’s more.  Marrs also covers abstruse subjects such as abductions & missing time, the CIA, MJ-12, cattle mutilations, remote viewing, and even takes a metaphysical gander into ‘the phenomenon’ that’s quite unique.  This book really employs a wide range.   Marrs even ventures into the role of big finance in this abstruse subject.

Another salient point is that this book is footnoted to the hilt!  That ALONE takes this to a whole different level, which is rarely achieved in UFOlogy except only by the best researchers.  That is one reason why my respect of Jim Marrs has only grown overtime, because he doesn’t just connect dots that people can’t verify themselves.

For everything it offers, this book offers a lot of value.  Anyone really interested in the subject would be doing themselves a great disservice by overlooking it.  This book is a must have.

Book Review: Sekret Machines: Gods: Volume 1 of Gods Man & War by Tom De Longe & Peter Levenda

SekretMachines
TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
March 22, 2017

Having been familiar with some of Levenda’s work, and others such as Richard Dolan, Jim Marrs, etc. this book held decent hopes for me.

Sekret Machines: Gods: Volume 1 Of Gods Man & War by Tom DeLonge and Peter Levenda is an intriguing book, but not without its flaws.

The book does bring about a considerable amount of information on the subject of the UFOs from a broad point of view.  Throughout the book, the authors present considerable information that couples to everything from the paranormal, ancient civilizations, the occult, and more.  The authors do a fair job of supplanting the book with a veritable amount of sourced material.  This definitely gives the book some veracity.

Footnotes are detailed at the end of each chapter, which makes for ease of access which is great.  When one has to slog back and forth to the end of a book to conduct verify sources it gets painstakingly asinine.  This footnote format certainly streamlines access to that information and is very much appreciated.  The only one better would be with footnotes at the bottom of the page, since it is the most efficient.

As an introductory volume to this topic, the book does a good job.  The book could have been better, but it could have certainly been worse.  The best book out there as an introductory volume to the phenomenon is hands down Richard Dolan’s UFOs For The 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide To An Ancient Mystery.  Those seeking a more solid foundation from which to jump-off are encouraged to ruminate upon that book.

Now to the bad.  The book features sections that could have been better served by some serious editing of run on sentences that give Hemingway a run for his money.  Well, perhaps not THAT bad all of the time, but bad enough for it to be noticeable and take away from the content.

Also, one particular point that was quite disconcerting is the fact that the authors take a unilateral point of view of making it seem like UFOs can only be explained by the alien mythos.  While this is certainly one possibility, and one with some solid grounding, it is not the only one, and not by far.  Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Walter Bosley, and others have come up with an equally arguable case that argues for human ingenuity as one possible way to explain some UFOs.

Additionally, when one couples the possibility of human ingenuity with certain incisive issues such as Military Abductions [MILABS] then one has an exact mirror for the phenomenon that’s equally disturbing in certain respects.  The point of me stating this is not to convince anyone of one possibility or another, far from it.  It’s simply to put the light the fact that there’s extensive evidence by Farrell & Bosley which shows an alternative to the unilateral assertion that extraterrestrials are behind everything.

In fact, one could argue that the authors’ belief in the ET-only hypothesis is dogmatic, and it would be hard to argue against it.  The fact the authors chose the “Cargo Cult” jargon for humanity speaks volumes of how low they see humanity on the totem pole, even though evidence abounds of there being more than their conformist point of view.

If you haven’t read any UFO books, or are a fan of DeLonge’s work, you will probably find some value in this book.  That said, if you are seeking more solid ground that’s just as intriguing, footnoted to the hilt and not dogmatic, then please read any of the following:

UFOs & The National Security State: Chronology Of A Cover Up [Volume 1] by Richard Dolan
UFOs & The National Security State: The Cover Up Exposed [Volume 2] by Richard Dolan
UFOs For The 21st Century Mind by Richard Dolan
Our Occulted History by Jim Marrs
UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record by Leslie Kean
Alien Agenda By Jim Mars
Triangular UFOs: An Estimate On The Situation by David Marler

And books that cover the human aspect behind part of this phenomenon:

Saucers, Swastikas & Psyops: A History Of A Breakaway Civilization: Hidden Aerospace Technologies & Psychological Operations by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
Covert Wars And Breakaway Civilizations: The Secret Space Program, Celestial Psyops & Hidden Conflicts by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
Cover Wars & Clash Of Civilizations: UFOs, Oligarchs and Space Secrecy Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
Origin: The 19th Century Emergence Of The 20th Century Breakaway Civilizations

The sad part is that the scope of this phenomenon is wider and more intriguing than what many people state it is.  That’s why the books above are mentioned, for those seeking further information in order to be able to decide for themselves whether ET really is the only actor in this stage, or if there’s more to this abstruse topic.

Ultimately, what you think is up to you.  But to be able to come to a decision one has to know the resources available, and at least now some know part of what’s out there and can make up their own mind on the matter.

Book Review: The Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization by Richard Dolan

For those that don’t know, Richard Dolan is a scholar, historian, and renown researcher within the field of alternative research.

Dolan’s research has been integral in bringing in a new fresh point of view within the field of UFOlogy and this works exemplifies this rather trenchantly.

The Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization by Richard Dolan mirrors incisively the rest of his works quite well, although in a much more shortened manner given the length of the book.

Having coined the term “Breakaway Civilization” in his UFOs & The National Security State series, Dolan follows up with this booklet, which is a salient synopsis of the presentation he gave in San Mateo, CA in 2014 at the Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization Conference.

Admittedly, if you have seen that particular presentation of Dolan on youtube, then this will be nothing new.  However, if you are new to the subject, or want to have a written reference for what Dolan discussed in his presentation, then this book is certainly for you.

Dolan begins discusses UFO reports/statistics and the ongoing phenomena.  Thereafter, the author discusses the fascinating story of Ingo Swann and his remote viewing prowess.  Swann’s findings and experience definitely lend a thread of credibility that makes the reader aghast at the possibilities.  The fact that remote viewing experimentations were taking place decades ago shows how vital this type of discipline was to reconnaissance and more.

Discussed soon after are Karl Wolfe’s testimony, which he shared during the Disclosure Project, Donna Hare’s testimony regarding having to airbrush any evidence of UFOs as well as the story of Vito Saccheri.

Throughout the book Dolan homes in on the implications of the SSP & Breakaway Civilization at various stages and how these interweave with our reality in many ways.  This is appreciated given how many new folks will be reading this particular subject, and to have this subject analyzed and spoken about in a methodical, no-nonsense but in-depth and open-minded way is definitely refreshing.

Another data point delved into is Leonard Stringfield’s finding of “the crash retrieval syndrome” coupled with some cases which are highly provocative to say the least.

Also noted within the book is Dolan’s gander at what journalist James Goodall was told, which regarded highly advanced technologies stationed at the Nevada desert at the time.

Most notably, Dolan makes sure to harpoon many of the deeper implications that the subjects of Secret Space Programs and Breakaway Civilizations entail, as well as why it’s vital for the SSP & Breakaway Complex to maintain control of the subject and more importantly, the sciences.

Dolan also gives a glance at the ever illusive paradox of disclosure, while also giving light to some of the more notable renderings that relate to footage of UFOs, such as the STS 114 footage.

Soon thereafter, the author gives what he sees as the most likely scenario of the topic at hand, while also giving a cursory glance to the possible goals of the handlers.

Finally, Dolan gives his take on what individuals can do to detach from the control system and help bring about change in this discipline as well as others.

In its totality, the book not only gives individuals a hardcopy of one of Richard Dolan’s best presentations, but it’s also a different way of assimilating information.   Different people learn in different ways, and having this type of media for people to learn is highly helpful for those that appreciate tangible books like myself.

This book, or perhaps most notably, the idea of a Breakaway Civilization and  Secret Space Program certainly helps put many seemingly disparate pieces come together in a way that helps shed light onto the darkness that abounds.  And in that, this book certainly shines.

Having said that, we need cognize that how the world looks a century from now will be proportional to how individuals decide to live their lives in relation to this topic and others.  If individuals so choose to educate themselves becoming autodidacts, and also incite others into actions such as Richard Dolan has and continues to do, then the world will in fact begin to change accordingly.

Book Review: The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock

December 7, 2016

The Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock is an interesting dissertation into the possibilities that the Universe may yield in the future.  Wilcock’s foray into the fiercely phenomenal is an unbounded approach into what he believes wholeheartedly to be taking place in the world at this time.

The book features a collation of data points, some of which come from verifiable sources, and some of which come from alleged whistleblowers, that merges in its core into what Wilcock has repeatedly called the ascension process.

Incidentally, the first half of the book felt more like having a salad, and the second part of the book was where the meat and potatoes was at.   As a connoisseur of data, the second part was far more interesting than the first, and am definitely highly appreciative of the countless sources Wilcock uses where applicable.

As a forewarning, some chapter titles – mostly particularly in the first half of the book – are a bit of a misnomer because they make the chapters seem like they were going to be vastly more interesting than they actually were.  This is coming from someone who knows how interesting Wilcock’s work has been in the past.  The subject matters within the first half of the book often went in personal directions, which in a sense was a bit of a letdown considering the possibilities the chapter’s name featured.  That’s a subjective point of view, so your mileage may vary.

In the nascent stage of The Ascension Mysteries, the author begins questioning much of what we’ve been taught in public schooling, which quite admittedly not only paints history in a different light, but is downright obscure when one delves deeply into that matter.

In any case, Wilcock proceeds to lay the foundation for his work with an analysis of the structure of the Universe, which he has termed “The Source Field”.  He uses references such as the work of Dr. Hans Jenny and Dr. Luc Montagnier to buttress this theory.

The author follows up touching lightly upon Disclosure Project which took place in 2001 and featured reputable people that claim to have access to data considering UFOs and cover ups that would boggle the mind and these individuals were also willing to testify before congress.

Thereafter, saliently noted by the author are the myriad issues we as a society face with the constant bombardment of what the Cabal wishes to infuse the populace regarding Illuminati Symbolism in pop culture & media, while also venturing into his personal background into relation to how he grew to find this information.

Noted within the confines of the book are also references to Carlos Castaneda and how his findings dovetail with alternative realities.  Wilcock also notes how his dreams helped lay the foundation of much of what he knows while also how Big Pharma played a roll into the health deterioration of his mother.  The author gives mention to the many instances of personal synchronicities that took place in his life.

From there the author speaks at length about personnel events that revolve around ESP, and how that has helped manifest much of what we know of regarding his work today.  In fact, a great portion of the first half of the book is interweaved with personal anecdotes regarding the journey that he has gone through.

Noted also by the author is his delving into LSD as well as his foray into Lucid Dreaming travels spawned in large part by the work of Dr. Stephen LaBerge’s PhD Lucid Dreaming book.  With this, Wilcock gives us how those two events also played a roll into his understanding of reality as he saw it at the time and as he sees it now.

Promptly soon after, the author then touches upon NASA and many of the issues regarding the information they have covered up at the time, and some of which they still cover up today.  Mentioned with the factors of NASA’s duplicitious dealings are whistleblower testimony from personnel who were privy to information about Moon missions and such, which definitely leave the reader knowing something is amyss within the halls of NASA.

Covering the work of Maurice Chatelain, who was the director of communications for the Apollo missions, Wilcock also shows how his findings of the “Constant of Nineveh” couple into the book.   Wilcock also covers how the Constant of Nineveh interweaves into the Solar system, how precession helps bring ascension about, and how ancient history is littered with references to a possible ascension according to his understanding.

Curiously, Wilcock makes mention of the Breakaway Civilization, but he never mentions that it was Richard Dolan who coined the term in his magnum opus series UFOs & The National Security State.  Given how much Wilcock talks about Secret Space Programs, you would figure he would give a proper nod to the idea’s creator, since it couples perfectly with Secret Space Program, especially since he’s one of the most credible in UFOlogy.

Be that as it may, Wilcock then sets his cross hairs on NASA by giving it a much more in-depth look later in the book that covers a much more thorough approach than earlier on.

Other notable topics include stargates, Ancient Civilizations, moon bases, moon anomalies across the solar system, unofficial disclosure, underground bases, insider testimony, the fight against the cabal, and much more.

One of the strongest strengths of the book is also its greatest weakness some will argue, and that is his heavy reliability on insider testimony.  Knowing this, it’s definitely an area to keep note of.  Some aspects of the book are much stronger than others, but the totality of data points sets the stage for possibilities in intricate ways.

Secondly, the main ‘con’ of the book – as mentioned previously – is that a lot of the first half of the book is filled with personal info that could have been summarized a lot more efficiently and not so verbose, thus allowing for the book to have even more tangible information.  While the information Wilcock provides regarding his family and his past is important to understand all the early process in relation to Wilcock’s background, he could have just stacked more evidence for himself instead.

Ironically, a great part of the book felt like reading a journal.  That’s okay, since it’s part of Wilcock’s approach but given the topic at hand it would have been nice for his book to be structured in a way that was as ironclad as possible rather than overly anecdotal in a few areas.  That’s just an opinion though.  Given that Wilcock features many references where applicable, some would argue that he’s already given us ample evidence for his many arguments.

Whether or not people agree with Wilcock’s thesis of ascension is up to them.  With all the evidence he provides where applicable, it at least gives people something to ponder about regarding the many topics covered and their inherent implications.

Book Review: UFOs &The National Security State –Chronology Of A Cover Up [Volume 1] – By Richard Dolan

ufosnationalsecuritystate

Zy Marquiez
June 13, 2016

Over the last decade or so, Richard Dolan has become the unofficial historian of UFOlogy, and with good reason. Dolan, in his usual no-nonsense, methodical and rational approach has brought credibility to UFOlogy, which at times is a topic that can leave one’s head spinning.

In his second volume in this series Dolan also coined the term ‘Breakaway Civilization’, which also dovetails trenchantly with this analysis.

UFOs & The National Security State –Chronology Of A Cover Up [Volume 1] by Richard Dolan brings forth a substantial effort in chronicling many of the most notable Unidentified Flying Object sighting in modern history [1941-1973].

A most comprehensive/compelling dissertation of the dilemma humanity is facing within our skies is carried out in this book, and the fact that Dolan carries it out in an objective manner is not something to be taken lightly.

Dolan does an exemplary job in detailing not only the cover up of one of the greatest secrets of human history, but he has also centers his sights on the National Security Apparatus as well as the Military Industrial Complex, both of which have played a monumental role in creating this reality matrix that has been carefully manifested around us.

Furthermore, showing his attention to detail and nuts and bolt approach, Dolan is meticulous in footnoting all sources.  This is quite appreciated, because in the arena of ufology, where it’s tough to find tangible evidence – it is one of the biggest covers up after all – it’s great to have someone who’s willing to stick to documentation rather than ‘insider testimony’.  Not saying the latter doesn’t matter, but, it’s quite overdone in many circles and this is a much-needed common sense approach.

Coupled with the above, the author also brings forth of the issues of UFO sightings near nuclear facilities.  This in it of itself should be highly disturbing, because regardless if you think there are others out there, the simple fact that there is someone technologically advanced enough not only to penetrate the airspace of the United States and its military, but to do so with impunity, in what should be the most secure facilities on the planet [Nuclear weapons are the most powerful weapons on Earth, on paper, after all, aren’t they?] is HIGHLY DISTURBING.  The fact that it’s covered up is even more so.

But there is far, far more.

Dolan examines the high strangeness in abductions, cattle mutilations and the like, but also examines much of the disinformation and psychological operations that are carried out by the governments in order to downplay, and ridicule this issue.

This book sets out to lay the foundation for what will undoubtedly be one of the most pressing issues mankind faces right at this moment.

There is nothing else out there even remotely close to this book in this field, except the works of Dr. McDonald and the work of Major Donald Keyhoe. Both have done a rather incisive job in carrying out similar work as Dolan.

Dolan’s nod to the old school researchers is definitely a classy gesture, and shows the nature of the man and the respect he shows those in his field.

If you want credibility, a thoughtful, cogent examination of an issue that has plagued us at least – at minimum – for the last few decades and will continue to affect us thorough the rest of our history, this book is definitely for you.

Everyone should read this book.  Regardless of what you believe, it should be your civic duty and responsibility to be informed in this groundbreaking and thought-provoking issue, because eventually we will face it head on, whether the comptrollers want us or not.

Book Review: UFOs – Generals, Pilots & Government Officials Go On Record By Leslie Kean

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.
