I liked this book. It's a bit of a survey of some of the chicanery around UFO/abduction research. Most of it pertains to David Jacobs and his victims. He also gets into some instances of government agencies pushing the ETH for their own purposes.

What's really good is that Brewer documented all his sources with end notes for each chapter. It makes it easy to follow up on the stories.

After I read and reviewed Richard Dolan's “UFOs for the 21st Century”, I concluded it would be my last review of a general overview of the UFO phenomena. It was time to start drilling down. Over and over the same stories get passed around and some books promise brand new, never before evidence and revelatory proof of alien contact. They never deliver but to anyone not critically thinking during the read, they appear to. They're usually just brand new speculations and/or dubious witnesses with an ...more

The author doesn't come out as a complete debunker, but he is a hard, rational skeptic. He is critical of the user of hypnosis as a method, particularly the use of regression hypnotherapy and the use of hypnosis by unskilled practitioners. He is particular critical of some of the luminaries in ufology including Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs who all to often were more interested in supporting their agenda than addressing the emotional trauma of victims/experiencers. Much of the book also focuses ...more

Researcher Jack Brewer is not overly concerned with the UFO mystery. Instead, on his blog The UFO Trail and in this new book, The Greys Have Been Framed: Exploitation in the UFO Community, Brewer's focus is on how UFOs and ufology are exploited by certain researchers, government agents and agencies, and other charlatans to manipulate, defraud, and deceive, and to further traumatize the already traumatized or mentally unstable.

Following a brief discussion of how certain personality types are susc

I'll preface my review by stating that I have had a long time, heavy interest in this field, mostly leaning towards the ideas of Vallee, Whitley Strieber & Carl Jung. I find the philosophy behind the spiritual aspect of the phenomenon fascinating. That said, Jack Brewer's research here has flat out destroyed the credibility of most alien abduction accounts, since pretty much the entirety of the phenomena in popular cases are rooted in hypnotic regression. The book covers in detail how well known ...more
