it was amazing

A sane, well-balanced and very readable book about extraterrestrial life written by a scientist who take a careful look at assumptions we make about aliens and science. He discuses the Intelligent Design viewpoint without snark but is a science promoter all the way. He has a sense of humor and adds personal experiences as he goes. Bennett reminds me a bit of Phil Plain (The Bad Astronomer).

He takes the time to go back along the history of the scientific method to discuss what science is, and how it works. He's refreshingly clear and concise. This is one of the best books I have ever read about UFOs, in part because it isn't really about UFOs. It is about how we know what we know.

It's up-to-date, to, because it was published in 2008. Highly recommended, especially for lovers of astronomy and hysteria-free discussion of the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe.
