I've already heard and read a lot about Mr. Whitley Strieber for years specially on books and Coast to Coast AM (specially) with Art Bell. But actually this is my very first book of Whitley Strieber and I liked it. It is a must read for every UFOlogist just like me. He shared a lot of things about his strange and sometimes creepy encounters with those Grey Aliens and he also disclosed some informations about the government denials regarding the real incident on Roswell, New Mexico. I will defini ...more

Review ratings will vary wildly for this book. Some will approach it because they want the excitement of a sci-fi adventure and be disappointed. The thrill with this book comes from the author's ability and determination to probe his experiences and perceptions no matter how unusual or bizarre they are.

No-one can ever know for sure whether another person has had an experience or not, but even if it is pure fiction, it reveals much about trends in our collective psyche and so does the whole UFO

Whenever Whitley Strieber publishes a book about his further adventures with his space friends, he receives bags of mail from various loons who have all of a sudden remembered having the *exact* same experiences as he describes in his books! This is obvious proof that the 'Visitors' are reading Strieber's books and are tailoring their abduction methods to match his descriptions. As a message. There is no possible alternate explanation to this phenomenon, so shut up. The Visitors don't like your ...more

This is a second reading for me. Strieber continues with his experiences with the visitors, as he calls them and the psychological trials and tribulations he goes through as they are happening. He makes some tentative conclusions that are interesting and possibly mind altering. He says that his mind has certainly been altered since first remembering what has been going on with himself and his family.

i had a really hard time reading this book. I read most of it, but gave up with 20 pages left. I think that Mr. Strieber is way too intelligent for me. LOL! I love his books, especially his novels, and I think I'll leave the alien books alone for a while. I was totally engrossed at times, then couldn't get through it, found myself re-reading over and over. Not for me. Sorry.

I love Whitley and his struggle with alien abduction was brilliantly told in Communion and Transformation. This book tells of his resolve and his constant struggle to accept the situation.
Once he has become "comfortable" with himself he is able to see the benefits of the experience.
Thoughtful and well written account

Whitley's experiences and insights are pretty amazing. I was really surprised to see how much of the Key was actually presented here first.

“The Mars Committee and its various offshoots have struggled consistently over the years on behalf of the public interest. Their work is presented with great documentary force in Dr. Stanley V McDaniel’s 1993 book, The McDaniel Report, published by North Atlantic Books of Berkeley, California. This report should be required reading for anybody who cares about the future of public science.” 0 likes
