This book was in many ways highly interesting and enjoyable reading matter--his chapter at the end on legendary Ufologist Morris K. Jessup was particularly intriguing.

There is, however one big--very big--caveat. Like so many books about "true mysteries," especially ones that touch on the paranormal, Gaddis tends to prefer a good yarn to a good fact. Some of the stories he soberly relates as "true" turn out, on closer investigation, to be either more prosaic than his retelling would have one beli

If nothing else, Vincent H. Gaddis earned his place in history by coining the phrase "Bermuda Triangle." That's among the nautical wonders he ponders in Invisible Horizons, a classic example of the briskly-written, factually-dubious mystery-mongering books which proliferated in the '60s and '70s.

I read this book as a young teen. I was totally into the mysterious phenomena like Bigfoot, UFO's, mysterious disappearances,etc.. This book always stuck out in my mind years later. I assume that with way more critical skills on board I'd be disappointed with it now but it's fun to reminisce. I enjoyed Frank Edwards' stuff, too. Again, though, they are too under researched for my tastes now.

The part of mystery is interesting. Entertaining perhaps. But whether all the incidents and facts mentioned in the book are true is a matter of doubt. The book is well written and the mystery part keeps the reader busy through the pages. Especially in the middle part of the book. That is what I liked.

When I was a kid, I especially liked books about forteana and unexplained phenomena that focused on the oceans - this probably has to do with growing up in a shore town. Anyway, IIRC, I liked this one as well - may have to give it a bathroom peruse at some point.
