Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Following the publication of "Missing Time" in 1982 Budd Hopkins received many hundreds of letters from people disturbed by reading the accounts described in that landmark book. The letter writers were from all over the world and many exhibited a deep anxiety disproportionate to any apparent cause: a partial memory of strangeness accompanied by an episode of "missing time," or just something odd and half-remembered happening to them.

The floodgates were opened. Budd gradually came to recognise the most telling pointers to genuine abduction experiences. The writer would frequently exhibit anxiety, almost apologetic, using phrases like "I know you are a busy man and I really hope I am not wasting your time" ..."there's probably nothing to it, but..." invariably insistent that anonymity be maintained and fearful of confiding even in close family members details of the half-remembered trauma.

One such letter was from Debbie Jordan-Kauble, a young divorced mother of two small boys living in a large family house with her parents in Indiana. Together with her letter were photographs of a large circular burned patch of ground in their garden where the soil had been baked hard, discovered the morning following mysterious lights accompanied by an episode of missing time and her dog behaving in an uncharacteristically frightened manner. Debbie is disguised in the book as `Kathy Davis' and the Indianapolis location as `Copley Woods.' So began a landmark two-and-a-half year investigation which took the study and understanding of the UFO abduction phenomenon into new and hitherto uncharted areas and led to the publication of this most profound, highly readable and truly classic book which deservedly became a New York Times best seller.

A new paradigm revealed by the greatest investigator in the field 23 Feb. 2010
By The Guardian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Following the publication of "Missing Time" in 1982 Budd Hopkins received many hundreds of letters from people disturbed by reading the accounts described in that landmark book. The letter writers were from all over the world and many exhibited a deep anxiety disproportionate to any apparent cause: a partial memory of strangeness accompanied by an episode of "missing time," or just something odd and half-remembered happening to them.

The floodgates were opened. Budd gradually came to recognise the most telling pointers to genuine abduction experiences. The writer would frequently exhibit anxiety, almost apologetic, using phrases like "I know you are a busy man and I really hope I am not wasting your time" ..."there's probably nothing to it, but..." invariably insistent that anonymity be maintained and fearful of confiding even in close family members details of the half-remembered trauma.

One such letter was from Debbie Jordan, a young divorced mother of two small boys living in a large family house with her parents in Indiana. Together with her letter were photographs of a large circular burned patch of ground in their garden where the soil had been baked hard, discovered the morning following mysterious lights accompanied by an episode of missing time and her dog behaving in an uncharacteristically frightened manner. Debbie is disguised in the book as "Kathy Davis" and the Indianapolis location as "Copley Woods." So began a landmark two-and-a-half year investigation which took the study and understanding of the UFO abduction phenomenon into new and hitherto uncharted areas and led to the publication of this most profound, highly readable and truly classic book which deservedly became a New York Times best seller.

This investigation evolved into a complex case with some twenty different people closely involved in or witness to a long series of events spanning decades. Simultaneously Budd had been approached by many other abductees from other parts of the country whose experiences were found to confirm and reinforce many of the new revelations being uncovered in the Copley Woods case.

The story as it unfolds is a step-by-step lesson in how to approach a superficially outlandish and extraordinary subject by the application of rigorous scientific method and to follow the evidence where it leads. It is a more complete narrative than "Missing Time'" and takes our understanding of this most improbable phenomenon much deeper. You'll need to read the book to find out why and how. The subject matter is possibly the most profound you'll ever read, but stretches credulity beyond the comfort zone. The revelation of all the evidence and the conclusions drawn had profound effects on the entire field of study of the extraterrestrial issue and its subsequent direction, and brought many new researchers into the field.

Hopkins is revealed as genuinely humanitarian and warm: the reader sympathises with and cares about these people. He again proves to be as superb a writer as he is an investigator: the book is engrossing, intelligent and mind-expanding; the author never allows personal opinion or prejudice to intervene, but rather follows the facts to tentative and quite disturbing conclusions.

The main subject of the book, "Kathy Davis" decided following publication to "come out," revealed her true identity and eventually co-wrote (with her sister, also involved in the phenomenon as is so often the case) her own book on the history of the case whilst retaining a life-long friendship with Budd.

If you have read either "Missing Time" or Professor David Jacobs' "Secret Life" and are intrigued to investigate the extraordinary alien abduction phenomenon more deeply, read "Intruders" next. Paperback reader copies are cheap and plentiful but a good original hardcover copy is best for your collection if you have shelf space.

The book was also re-scripted into a most excellent feature film of the same title, starring Richard Crenna (who actually plays an amalgam character of Hopkins and John Mack), Steven Berkoff and Mare Winningham. The "Intruders" film is not a literal transcript of the book's narrative but a re-written screenplay exploring the main themes and with some changes to the characters (who nevertheless remain largely recognisable) to better fit the needs of a 120-minute film.

Five stars again, Mr. Hopkins.

One of the best books on alien abductions ever written 28 Jan. 2012
By Michael Menkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Intruders is a classic book on alien abductions. Although it was written in the 1980's, it's still one of the best books on the subject. I recommend it very highly along with Professor David Jacobs' books on alien abductions. If you want a good book on alien abductions, start with this book.
Could not put this book down!! 4 May 2015
By David M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although this book was published in 1987, it’s as relevant today as then. In many of my reads of other UFO subject matter - this book is often sited.
After reading “Intruders”, I now know why.
Hopkins reads a letter from “Kathie Davis” a young women who heard Hopkins on a radio show. She lives in the outskirts of Indianapolis.
After reading her letter, he calls for more information. After hearing Kathie tell her story, the book begins on an incredible journey. Hopkins seeks the truth. He documents everything carefully, making sure stories are authentic. He even gives “false” suggestions in regression sessions to validate the truth of the subject.
I was mesmerized with the unraveling of Kathie’s abductions. Hard to fathom and grasp even as I write this.
Hopkins also includes several other case histories to validate, support and show just how similar in nature the ‘procedures’ of all these poor people endured. I would want to forget and deny it happened too.
There is one chapter 6 - “The Saddest Day” that left me just angry, profoundly saddened and furious at what these ageless but totally clueless alines did to her. Let me quote. (spoiler alert).

“There was little more I could do but let her feelings take their course. When she had calmed down somewhat, I asked if they -- those who had done this to her -- ever told her why, ever offered a reason?
She answered in a coldly, angry voice: “NO”. I asked if she ever said anything to them, ever told them that it was cruel, that they had no right to take her baby. She spoke to me almost in a whipper, calmly furious: “I screamed it at them.” Then, in a sad, ironic mix of incomprehension and profound personal loss, she added this: “And the f.....ker looked surprised!”.

I have read numerous books on alien abduction, including "Secrete Life” by DR. Jacobs, and this book is in my top three. Bud has passed on, but if there is one person we could share a dinner with, it would not be Alexander the Great or Jesus ... it would be Bud Hopkins.

p.s. I am surprised there are only 8 reviews for this book?? This is one of the best, no doubt!

Loved it 10 April 2014
By Candi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The story of Kathy is very absorbing and I enjoyed this book immensely. If you like paranormal/ alien abduction stories you will most likely enjoy her story. It is based on Kathy's true account of her frightening experiences. I have read it twice and have seen the movie "Intruders" which was based on this book. I recommend it.
