Book Description

20 Jan 2011
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration - NASA - was established on July 29, 1958. Ever since that day, NASA has been at the forefront of efforts to explore outerspace, resulting in the Apollo missions to the moon, the Skylab space-station and today's space shuttle. But behind the open face of NASA, there is a much more mysterious world. NASA has been linked to a wealth of high-level cover-ups, including: · Claims that the Apollo moon landings of 1969 to 1972 were faked as part of an effort to demonstrate military and technological superiority over the former Soviet Union · NASA's role in hiding the truth about the controversial face on Mars - which many believe to be a carved structure, created in the remote past by long-extinct, indigenous Martians · NASA's deep and longstanding involvement in the famous UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico, in the summer of 1947 · Deep Throat-like NASA sources that have attempted to blow the lid on NASA's most guarded secrets concerning the U.S. Government's interactions with aliens. "Nick Redfern [is] the Brit with a knack for ferreting out all the dope on outrageous subjects." - Jim Marrs, best-selling author of Psi Spies and Alien Agenda

2.0 out of 5 stars Who Abducted The Real Nick Redfern? 1 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a great admirer of Three Men Seeking Monsters, and always feeling that any Redfern book would at least be well written, if a little off the wall sometimes, I have to say this is a train wreck of a book - one of which I can only assume at some point that he was asked to up the word count of, by someone such as the editor or publisher or indeed anyone who would be supervising this publication, as the grammar barely holds together in what amounts to hugely over elaborated sentences - structured much like I have attempted to do here to illustrate my point.

Also there are no clear headings, and the break out boxes throughout resemble one of those UFO annuals - I half expected a comic strip and a crossword to appear at some point.

I'm sorry, as there's probably lots of interesting information contained within this book, but in three attempts at getting past the first chapter, I've had to put it down. Hopefully this is only a 'blip' in the author's output - or he has been replaced with an infinite number of 'greys' bashing away at an infinite number of typewriters. A real disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars This one is made for $ purposes only. 31 Mar 2011
By Fiasco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Better save ur money for some real, quality effort like Leslie Kean UFO book or any Richard Dolan work. This is a poor work, fast done, poorly written, and with info you will find on the abovetopsecret board. I think the author was thinking in making some cash with this one and thats it, almost no pictures, the design is awful too, and overall you get the feeling that this is not a deep-hard-work, instead a quick-make-for-cash book on an extremely interesting theme. Personally i will never get a Redfern book again, there are much better journalistic style books like Richard Dolans, Leslie Kean, or the king of conspiracy Jim Marrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a feeling 30 Dec 2010
By Linda S. Godfrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I believe most Americans, in their heart of hearts, feel our government has information about UFOs and the creatures alleged to pilot them that they choose not to share with "we, the people." Researcher Nick Redfern has no such compunctions about sharing, thank goodness. His new book The NASA Conspiracies delves deep into places the National Aeronautics and Space Administration would much prefer ordinary citizens avoid altogether.

I give Redfern great credit. Trying to piece together any coherent statement about phenomena like the Roswell UFO crash, the humanoid, giant "face" on Mars, and even our own missions to the moon is a daunting task. All of these incidents - along with most every other UFO-related sighting or report ever made - seem to attract layers of rumor and disinformation that make it very difficult to sort reality from rubbish. And conflicting information inevitably breeds paranoia - which is not always an illogical state of mind!

Redfern takes a sharp paring knife to the main topics of concern to conspiracy buffs, and then votes yea or nay on whether our own officials are fostering cover-ups in each case. And he is even-handed enough to cite conspiracy-deflating evidence when he finds it.

Redfern then goes even deeper, addressing the infuriating question of why our government would try to pull the surgically mutilated sheep's wool over our eyes. Some trace this policy back to the late 1950s report by the Brookings Institute which concluded humanity can't handle the truth, and that knowledge of extraterrestrials would shock us into chaos and initiate world-wide kerfuffles. Or are there more nefarious motives in play, such as secret swaps allowing aliens to probe us more freely than a TSA worker in exchange for shiny new technologies?

Redfern also considers the work of the late Mac Tonnies, who suggested that aliens are not off-worlders but in-worlders; the remnants of ancient, technologically-advanced Earth inhabitants. Remember the jokey mid-90s John Tesh is an Alien web sites? [...] Tesh does fit the profile: tall, blonde and eco-minded.

Redfern also notes the recent, curious rapprochement between the Vatican and parishioners from outer space. Does the Pope know something we don't? Do aliens wear little silver slippers?

The fact is, too many people have seen and experienced unexplainable aircraft and creatures to deny that something is going on. Redfern's feeling is that the conspiracies are beginning to unravel - with, I might add, the help of dogged researchers like himself - and that we may be close to learning the truth at long last.

My only criticism of this book is that I liked it so much I wished there was even more of it (such as a chapter on men in black), although I know from experience that publishers keep a tight leash on word counts these days. I bet, however, that the prolific Redfern will be back with more on this topic. I hope so. No one does a better job of guiding us through the confusing mass of truths, half-truths and obfuscations that comprises what we think we know about UFOs. The NASA Conspiracies is highly recommended for anyone willing to consider that sometimes the truth is indeed out there, but other times it is right here, waiting for us to take a closer look.

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing 2 July 2011
By R. E. Thoolen - Published on Amazon.com

Nothing new in this book. No new facts. The only valuable part for me was the bibliography where some really interesting stuf was listed. If you want this book, you can have mine for free.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rumors Abound 20 Jan 2012
By N. Rozanne Deloach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Actual phrases, used over and over, in this book:

"Interestingly, there have been rumors suggesting that..."

"I have heard intriguing rumors to the effect that..."

"Should we dismiss the story as being merely a piece of folklore and mythology? Or, could the events...have been too real?"

This books subtitle should delete the word "Truth" and replace it with "Rumors." It is riddled with shoddily constructed arguments and rarely more evidence than heresay.

However, one extra star awarded for having truly fun stories. Let's face it, conspiracy theories are fun, and this book has some of the wildest stories out there - even if they are completely unsubstantiated. Good fodder for the next blockbuster movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars From the Grassy Knoll to Outer Space 12 Jan 2011
By JE Farrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I pretty much left my passion for conspiracy theories at the "Grassy Knoll," but I must admit to being one of the hoards fascinated with Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" TV show. As a matter of fact, after viewing each episode I am left with a strong sense of social anxiety. If even ONE of the conspiricies is REAL...well, it's too horrible to contemplate. Nick Redfern's collection of alleged "NASA Conspiracies" are interesting, but nothing to get into a fetal position over. I like that because the last thing I want is to get freaked out just before I turn off the light for the night before going to sleep.

The collection is comprised of the major cases & events since just before the Rosewell incident--but that doesn't mean that they're not still interesting or may be entirely new information to younger readers or people outside the UFO Loop.

The main plus of THE NASA CONSPIRICIES is that author Nick Redfern writes quite well. He appears to almost effortlessly tie in the various elements of any given event, including pro & contra views. This is not to suggest that Redfern is neutral or non-partisan--he is definitely on the side of the Angels (well, in this case the Aliens.) This is OK since this committment gives a sense of passion to the writer's point of view & completely avoids appearing ego-centric.

The first thing I looked for when I received the book was a picture of "The Face on Mars." Yep, there it was. For some reason I find that face fascinating, even haunting. It's interesting how the face becomes increasingly distorted the closer the view of the image. In other words, the more detailed the image, the less it looks like a face--or anything "humanoid" at all.

Speaking of pictures, one of the only criticisms I have of the book, is that the dozen or so photos included are rather lacklustre & obviously "stock" (non-copyrighted) photographs. Economic consideration aside, I bet there are plenty of people out there with photos of their own to share that would have been more appropriate than a memorial portrait of JFK.

The only other problem I felt was the use of several text boxes on just about every page--as well as the headings of "CLASSIFIED" and "TOP SECRET." They are distracting & can screw up the even rhythm of the book. Sometimes they don't appear to follow any logic that would justify the layout. A mild irritant at worst.

THE NASA CONSPIRACY is an excellent example of the Conspiracy & Unexplained genre.
