It's sad that this book is out of print. The problem is that reality is boring. The truth about the Bermuda Triangle is that there is no Bermuda Triangle. There is no specific area of the ocean where there are more mysterious or unexplained losses of ships or planes, and while there are some number of ships or planes that sink or crash and are never found, there aren't really that many.

This is the only book about the Bermuda Triangle written by a trained researcher. Kusche went back to primary s

Did you know that the weather hundreds of miles off-shore could be different than those in Florida? Who knew! Apparently not a lot of Bermuda Triangle legend re-tellers. This book debunks so many legends merely by looking at weather records and ship logs that it's rediculous. Now whenever i see a TV special on the Bermuda Triangle i yawn. The real mystery is why so many people can get their facts so wrong and how so many other people have taken these stories at face-value without any serious fac ...more

Not only does Kusche debunk the nonsense about the so-called Burmuda Triangle, he outlines how facts and history can be distorted, manipulated, ignored and outright lied about to create from whole cloth a sinister controversy, conspiracy or whopper of a fairy tale to entertain for fun and, most pointedly, profit.
Andy
The impression you quickly get is that the real mystery of the Bermuda Triangle is how people can be so stupidly credulous. About half of the ships that supposedly met their fate in the Bermuda Triangle actually sank or were abandoned hundreds or thousands of miles from the Triangle. (One of them sank in the Pacific Ocean.) Another substantial chunk of the legend are ships that never actually existed.

I read through the entry for Flight 19. Reading the evidence presented in a sober manner makes i

It's just too bad that so few people take the time to do research and find out the real story behind most of the garbage woo-woo stories that are spread around (the internet, the dime store paperbacks, the b.s. e-mail forwards, the blasted History Channel). If only this book were checked out more or as often than the Berlitz-type books, the world might be something of a better place.
Mary
As a philosophy teacher noted, it says something about society that this book went out of print, whereas, a book, like that of Berlitz's The Bermuda Triangle, which is little more than the re-telling of legends, has had numerous re-prints. What is more important to us -- truth or legend? If truth is more important to you, then read this book.

This takes about 50 of the most common disappearances blamed on The Bermuda Triangle and examines the truth behind them, revealing that in some cases there was no record of them in others they appeared again late, in the majority of cases they disappeared during major storms and hurricanes so that there was no mystery about them. In the end there turns out to be only a few cases where there was good weather, a full investigation, and no likely reason for the disappearance and these occurred appr ...more

In my opinion this is the most credible report on Bermuda triangle disappearings. No mystery, just dry compilation of facts which speak for themselves.
Theodore
Amazing work, clear cut cases, even when we don't know what happened(!). A must for any skeptic.

I read this book when it first came out and was fascinated by it. The author examines the popular books of the time and researches all of them. Many events attributed to the Triangle were not in fact in the Triangle. One ship was actually in the Pacific Ocean. The most reported instance if the squadron of planes that disappeared. He actually read over 2000 pages of transcripts from the official reports and found no mystery. The squadron leader was recently transferred from the Florida Keys and w ...more

Lumayanlah, buat iseng-iseng di hari libur mbaca info-info trivial seputar misteri segitiga Bermuda. Jadi hilangnya kapal-kapal dan pesawat-pesawat di kawasan "segitaga" itu ada penjelasan ilmiahnya. Bahkan ada yang hilangnya jauh dari kawasan itu juga diklaim sebagai korban segitiga Bermuda.
Wah, bisa-bisa hilangnya Adam Air itu juga diklaim ilang di Segitiga Bermuda itu juga yak? For further reading, silaken buku-buku lain yang berthema Misteri Segitiga Bermuda. Pasti penulisnya akan berargumen

As I recall, the author did not write this book borrowing info from other books. He did his own original research: interviewed witnesses, checked Coast Guard records, found original newspaper accounts, etc., and in the process gives a rational explanation for every disappearance in the Triangle up to the time of its publication. Too bad things are still disappearing down there :)
Marc Pressley
While Mr. Kusche's book may not explain everything, it's a highly rational examination of the facts and sources behind some of the most enduring Bermuda Triangle tales. All in all, the book takes away quite a bit of the mystery responsible for the legend of this region in a well-reasoned and well-presented manner.

tentang segitiga bermuda , ada banyak gambarnya juga,foto2 kapal dan pesawat yang hilang , tapi ada juga orang yang mancing di pantai dekat bermuda hilang . Anehnya waktu Colombus lewat situ nggak hilang , tapi waktu nglewatin wilayah bermuda triangle nya banyak kejadian aneh di kapalnya colombus .

Interesting, and at the time I read it the methane theory hadn't been thought of yet. I lean toward the latter myself.

Great facts and stories! The answer to one of my greatest questions.
