A Masterpiece 17 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I disagree with the previous review, and in fact, I strongly doubt if this reviewer actually read the book. He/she probably falls in the category of "uneducated and prejudiced sceptics", as the authors discusses in detail in Chapter 2: "Crop Circle Psychology".
I have always been fairly sceptical with respect to the crop circle phenomenon, but after reading the book (thanks, Mon, for this great gift) I am convinced there is someting going on. It suffices to have a look at a few of the close-up photographs of, for example, the formation in potato plants. Incredible! Anyone who still dismisses the phenomenon as a simple human prank, after reading this book, needs to have a few screws adjusted!
I liked the simple, sober style of this book. Yet, the book goes in great depth, and covers many relevant aspects. The author clearly is an expert in the field, extremely bright, and uses a very objective (sometimes a little humoristic) approach. The abundance of fantastic photographs make it a great coffee-table book too, valuable even for those who cannot read.
The conclusion is clear: besides the simple man-made formations, there exists a "high-tech" method to make crop circles, with the involvement of electromagnetic energy, as well as...?
I had only one problem with this book: after reading it, I lost my interest in many other things and I sleep less...
A Masterpiece!

Something is going on 16 May 2003
By Enrique Torres - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you have reached this page than you probably have more than a passing interest in the subject or phenomena known as crop circles. To take a quote from an old rock and roll( recently also sampled for hip-hop) song by Buffalo Springfield, "Something's happening here , what it is ain't exaclty clear." The Ph.D author explains some rather peculiar circumstances occurring throughout the globe, including the hoaxes, even those pertetuated by the media to the layman in a pretty easily digestable style. If you are like me, have a rudimentary background in science, not particularly linear in your thinking than this book will serve you well. All sides are presented. There were a few sections with graphs and such that were just a little to scientific for me but worthwhile nonetheless to get better insight into this unknown field that is growing in accumulated data. The book is NOT trying to convince you one way or the other as to the source of these mysterious symbols and the aftermath that results. What the author DOES do is present a concise overview of these occurrences and lets YOU be the judge as to the authenticity of this phenomena that goes obviously beyond ropes and ladders. There are no answers, some speculation and definitely some puzzling things going on. Check it out for yourself and YOU be the judge.

An excellent book! 16 Feb. 2001
By Andy Thomas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Eltjo Haselhoff is a remarkable rarity in the controversial arena of paranormal research - he has the qualifications and ability to blend hard science and metaphysics without compromising either. In so doing, he remains eminently credible to a world which craves statistics and repeatable tests, whilst being unafraid of deeper speculation. Anyone who has ever dismissed the entire crop circle phenomenon as a man-made joke needs to read this excellent book. They may be shocked by the utterly convincing case he makes for its authenticity as a genuinely unexplained mystery.
(UK author and lecturer Andy Thomas has written three books on the crop circle phenomenon, including the much-acclaimed "Vital Signs: A Complete Guide to the Crop Circle Mystery and Why it is NOT a Hoax." Andy has made many radio and TV appearances around the world.)

A rational voice at last 6 Jun. 2002
By Teresa - Published on
Format: Paperback
Most people base their opinion on crop circles on the little superficial and disinformative coverage in the media (apparently, like the previous superficial review). It's refreshing to finally have a truly scientific look at the REAL FACTS and then an equally rational attitude when it comes to drawing conclusions. That's what makes this book so riveting - you feel the author isn't trying to prove anything. His goal is the truth, no matter where it leads. And that kind of honesty is always appreciated, especially when it comes to something this hotly contested.

A very nice book! 21 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read the Italian version of this book, and I am surprised by the earlier review, which states that "75% of the time, the author tried to tell us that the phenomena is true through some of his personal (non-scientific) experiences." This is simply not true, and I don't think it is fair to write this in a book review. I have met the author here in Italy when he was giving a lecture, and he was very modest, yet extremely convincing. I therefore think this needs to be corrected.
First of all, the author only refers to personal experiences in one single section of the book, and clearly puts this section explicitly in the proper context, right at the beginning. The rest of the book is based on very clear and verifiable facts, which have all been published in scientific literature.
Secondly, the author makes it very clear that he is not trying to convince anyone. He says so explicitly, several times, and the entire work clearly carries this attitude. The reader is explicitly invited to make up his own mind.
I was also surprised by the statement "I wish he would have rather explained the scientific reasoning behind it". This is exactly what the book does, all the time, and in an excellent and understandable way too!
I recommend this book to everybody. It makes a very strong case that there exist advanced ways to create crop circles, and that there is much more to it than a few men with boards and ropes. I think that anyone who reads the book cannot refuse this statement any longer. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would do it right away. Well done!
