This book, as do his others, give professional analysis of the facts.There is no sloppiness, avoidance of hard truths or flights of ideas either. I have been fortunate enough to meet Mr. Hopkins when he was in the UK. I was even more impressed by his gentle humility and clarity of thought, also his genuineness and firm insistance on using science and reason above exagerated claims or beliefs about what is really going on. Having said that, this must be the most important book and documented case yet in UFO phenomenon, and a must read for everyone,since it makes us question everything we were ever taught to believe in if you read this book and then think about it. My only complaint is that there are too few books from Mr. Hopkins.

You have to admire and respect Budd Hopkins. Through 35 years of research into UFOs and abductions he has remained agenda-free, open-minded and evidence-led, never conclusion-led like the "true believers" and not given to speculation. He follows the evidence where it leads, reports what he finds and never dismisses factual case material because it falls outside current paradigms of understanding. He's been vindicated time and again, and lights the way in showing us all how a true investigator should work.

"Sight Unseen: Science, UFO Invisibility and Transgenic Beings" first published in 2003, was Hopkins' fourth and final book focussed on the alien abduction phenomenon, and the only one ever co-authored - with his then wife Carol Rainey. As with "Missing Time", "Intruders" and "Witnessed", Hopkins breaks new ground. He discusses astounding new evidence and furthers our understanding of what might be going on with this pervasive phenomenon by examining cutting-edge developments in mainstream science and technology.

Hopkins writes to his usual high standards of literacy, intelligence and engaging humour and the complementary sections penned by Rainey work well as a counterpoint as she discourses on recent discoveries in biology, genetics and physics to shed light on some of the more hitherto puzzling but persistently recurrent aspects of abduction cases reported across the world.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is well written and captivating, it covers a wide range of topics, ideas and theories. It has a lot of scope for future investigative avenues for those who are interested to follow them. By the end of the book it is clear that Budd is not really convinced that the aliens are what we would call interested in our wellbeing, I would agree on this point, to a point! As his research is mainly focused around the "Greys" and the offshoots of these visitors, I would have to say that I feel he is correct.

However, there is also other evidence to suggest that we are being visited by a lot more than just these grey's. My personal research concurs with Budd, but I do feel there is more to it than just the "Grey" question? I believe that there are those who are here to take, some to observe and others to help. In fact I suspect there is hostility between some of these alien races, to the point of violence, which would explain why we get crashed craft (one explanation anyway). So what you have here is part of the picture, but this part has been well covered and very well documented and it is a great piece of work! I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the topic. So I must give it a 5 star, excellent book!

Format: Hardcover
With 'Sight Unseen', Budd Hopkins has stuck his neck out even further than in his earlier highly controverisal books 'Intruders', 'Missing Time' and 'Witnessed'.
Along with his wife, Carol Rainey, Hopkins has constructed what could well transpire to be one of the most significant books of it's kind yet published.
Naturally the sceptics will have a field day or an embolism trying to come to terms with what the authors suggest throughout the book, but, once the hurdle represented by suspension of disbelief is overcome, the casual reader, or UFO / alien abduction investigator, is garuanteed an extremely thought - provoking, highly logical argument in favour of the relaity of these phenomena and fascinating comparrisons with emergent themes in conventional science for which many factors reported by abductees have acted as solid indicators.
This book is a must have for the casual observer and serious researcher alike.

This is the first book of this genre that I have taken the time and effort to read. In the past I have always brushed aside the theory of UFO and ET life, however after reading the descriptive and the reviews on this title I decided to take the plunge and give it a go.
A 'Sight Unseen' has been an eye opener to say the least and offers the reader a balanced perspective. In comparing the modern day science and technology of our world (how fast it is moving on, etc.) against possible / plausible technologies that may be being used by others not of this world, the authors explore reasoning and present an extraordinary set of cases for the reader to examine and draw their own conclusions. By comparing decades of frequent and unexplainable events from witnesses and other available evidence, I felt the research levels were well balanced, thought through and riveting.
I am not so fast to join the de-bunkers now..!
A recommended read on kindle.
