Of all the flying saucer books I've read, and I've read a few, this one provides science and context for the genre. Stanton Friedman is the world's leading Ufologist and his knowledge, research and credibility jump off the pages of this text. He methodically refutes UFO debunkers with powerful government documents, thousands of eye witness interviews, and cold hard science. Friedman spends much of this book settling personal scores and dragging the reader through complex mathematical formulas de ...more

This book is interesting when it discusses actual UFO sightings and events. It gets a little bogged down trying to trace the mistakes and tricks in trying to demonstrate the lies and inaccuracies in the letters and affidavits issued by the government, the military, and UFO debunkers.

A little repetitive, but this guy's a nuclear physicist that worked on government top secret projects during the Cold War. He knows how things work, and he did his research quite well. He puts out many interesting ideas regarding UFO's.
