Book Description

15 Dec 2012
This is the most in-depth book by Dr. Richard Sauder, the world's premier investigator of underground bases and tunnels. In these pages, Dr. Sauder asks, and often answers, such questions as: - Where are the secret underground bases? - How far down do they go? - What leaks are coming from the classified world? - What has the U.S. Navy planned for beneath the ocean floor? - Are there bases beneath the ocean? - What's going on beneath Washington, D.C.? - Are there high-speed, underground maglev systems? - What is the connection with UFOs and the alien question? This is a book that truly goes where no other book has gone before. It is a must-read for any and all who are seeking to understand the full magnitude of the Matrix-like reality of our civilization. Using a combination of archival research, on-the-scene investigation, and first-hand interviews, Sauder takes the reader into a world that is under the ground and under the ocean. It is a world that we are supposed to think is impossible, and yet -- after reviewing his evidence -- seems all-too-likely. Jim Marrs, author of bestsellers "Crossfire," "Rule by Secrecy," and "The Rise of the Fourth Reich," said that "Hidden in Plain Sight" should be on your "must-read shelf." Timothy Good, author of the bestseller "Above Top Secret," called Sauder's book "brilliant, fascinating and revealing ... a must for all those interested in, and concerned about, the clandestine underground and undersea world beneath us."

2.0 out of 5 stars Predominantly Speculation and Padding 26 Aug 2012
By T. I. Farmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fascinating subject, and Mr. Sauder is said to be the alternative literature's top expert on mysterious underground installations, but the book is mostly conjectural - with very little witness testimony and even less certitude.

The author's modus operandi is typically to cite decades-old defense contractor or think-tank briefs mulling deep-underground command bases under Washington DC, super-fast subterranean maglev trains, sub bases on the sea floor, etc. and then conclude, "based on my research," that such things "probably" have been built in total secrecy. This begs credulity on lots of fronts not addressed by Mr. Sauder, from the job of keeping them secret (hordes of builders must have been silenced, somehow, to a man, to say nothing of the thousands needed to staff such bases) to practical logistics: if the nation is really crisscrossed with enormous secret underground bases and tunnels, where did all the excavated earth go? How do they get supplies, food, and power without attracting attention? After all, Jacques Vallee memorably stumped believers in the alleged vast underground Dulce, NM base by asking, "How do they take the garbage out?"

Mr. Sauder reports rumors that the secret Pine Gap intelligence station in the Australian Outback was in line for an underground expansion capable of hosting 250,000 people. How you'd dig such a thing out, or move such a crowd in, without it looking like D-Day to the observant residents of nearby Alice Springs is not discussed.

The good stuff in this book, a handful of tantalizing emails claiming firsthand knowledge of weird subterranean installations, totals about ten pages. The rest is laborious and often repetitive padding (Mr. Sauder mentions at least three times that he's ridden the Washington DC Metro rail system extensively) or windy, stream-of-consciousness speculation hung on the slimmest of hooks. He reproduces a set of fanciful, science-fiction-grade illustrations of undersea bases, commissioned by the military back in the 1960s as an apparently abstract exercise, then leaps to the (wholly unsupported) view that they are likely to exist by now in real life. He "reveals" the existence of a VIP rail platform under the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, extending north from Grand Central, as possible evidence of a secret transport system -- not seeming to realize the platform, built for FDR in the 1930s, is common knowledge.

You will turn pages with increasing exasperation looking for hard information, and find too little to satisfy. Even the underground bases we know about, like Mount Weather or Cheyenne Mountain, are mentioned only in passing.

Many of the flaws that bedevil alternative / speculative lit are evident here: logical lapses, thin data, and lack of a good editor. This is a very cool topic awaiting more rigor and, hopefully, more direct testimony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Lauder trial date delayed until late July in Minot, ND 13 July 2010
By Ann Chontos - Published on Amazon.com
Thank you Amazon.
Dr. Lauder's book, "Hidden in Plain Sight", is a courageous venture in to the deep hidden secrets of the honeycombed pockets of our beautiful planet earth by military and others.
He is now facing trial for his peaceful efforts to bring attention to us, the taxpayers and otherwise homeless Americans, to the mugging of middle class America,
by the stealing of trillions of dollars for underground survival for the selfish, so called elite,
All he asks for, in his own gentle, peaceful, ways is that the truth to be told to all.
Hurry and read "Hidden in Plain Sight" by Dr. Richard Lauder before it is taken off the shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underground Speculations 15 Dec 2012
By Vitalis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After Amazon recommeded this book based on my preferences, I decided to try it out. What turned out to be a random purchase, became one of the most intriguing books I have read in a long time.

Dr. Sauder begins with a background for the subterranian and aquatic bases and their military intentions. He starts the book with a brief overview of WWII German scientists and other government documents that suggest that military installations were built underground. The sequential chapters discuss and speculate over their probable locations and just the overwhelming complexity of underground military projects. After that, he discusses possible underwater bases and their possible locations. Throughout the entire book, there are multiple illustrations that help the reader visualize the vast number of possible designs. In the last chapter, he discusses the possibility of any additional help the military might have had from our "cosmic allies." This chapter is much more vauge, but he does try to reinforce it with witness accounts and other sources.

In the end, I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone seeking to expand their thoughts. After reading this book, I left with a brief background of underground and underwater military installations in North America. This book is very entertaining and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars More insight on the underground world 5 Aug 2010
By Reade Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sauder digs still deeper in his 3rd book on the subject of underground bases. Lots if fascinating anectdotal accounts that help answer some of the questions raised in his previous books. I would love for Dr. Sauder to follow up with a detailed synopsis of just what it is that he believes is going on beneath us.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, if a bit unstructured 27 Mar 2012
By Alicia Paterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some really interesting stories and insights; there was much that I had not read anywhere previously on the subject. I especially was interested to learn about past research pointing towards the maximum depth of planned underground and sub-sea floor structures.

Only a couple of criticisms. There was quite a bit of speculation on some subjects where there wasn't a lot of solid info available; understandable but still a bit frustrating. Also the whole book felt a bit like an assembly of stories of various related subjects - it does not feel like a coherent whole. It could use an update with a good editor bringing it together a bit better.

Overall an enjoyable read which I recommend to anyone interested in what might be possible or actually exist with respect to Deep underground bases.
