I have wanted to read Stanton Friedman for years. Some regard him as the patriarch of UFOlogy. I almost met him once. I'd signed up for a "paranormal convention" at LA Convention Center, but it cancelled months before it ran. I was to see his famous presentation "Flying Saucers are real!"

The book itself contains much information. It is debatable if each piece can be recognized as a fact, it really depends on one's own personality. What I believe is remarkably haunting is the presence and cohesiv

The mythos of Roswell has been hashed over for the last 30 years now. Stan is one of the most respected UFO authors in America. His book is a straight forward, no nonsense look at the alleged Crash, the alleged cover up and what it might mean to the human race.

I sometimes find the question of skeptics tiresome as they refuse to believe anything that fogs up their world view.

I don't know what happened but here is some thoughts.

Historically events do not re-occur on a daily basis. It is possible t

This is all made up unfortunately, but it's still really fun to read. It seems that after all of the FOI requests made over the years and prying out of DoD documents and so on that the UFO phenomenon was nothing more than a Cold War disinformation plan developed and seeded out to willing listeners as an excellent cover for advanced weaponry. After all what better way to win the war of hearts and minds than to slip information out which would eventually filter its way over to the enemy (the USSR) ...more

If you're looking for the best book on the Roswell cover-up, this is it. The Roswell story is complicated, complex, circuitous, tangled, and all together maddening; but Don Berliner manages to tell the story in a compelling narrative that builds on recently uncovered documents and first hand accounts. I loved this book and I, um, well, I've read a lot of UFO books.

I actually really enjoyed reading this book. I have been reading a lot about UFO's and I always enjoy reading Stanton Friedman's view. It was really well written and had a lot of information that I hadn't read previously. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the subject and especially if you wonder what did happen at Roswell all those years ago.

Loved it. Well researched, solidly argued case for what really happened in 1947 at Roswell (or more accurately, Corona!). If you're a UFO enthusiast, this book is a must-read...

Friedman is a nuclear physicist. Either he's been exposed to too much radiation or he's on to something. You read it and decide.

Stanton Friedman is no arm chair researcher. Once again he did a great job of thoroughly investigating the roswell related ufo crash.
