Need to Know offers new and valuable information, 8 Sep 2006
"Need to Know" by Tim Good presents a host of new and valuable information for serious researchers of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). Indeed, while reading Mr. Sutherland's review I wondered if we had read the same book. I found many new cases involving pilots around the world which is one of my specialties. General readership books such as this one must necessarily include older cases that provide the perspective needed to better evaluate the newer ones. The older cases that Good has included are generally solid. Good also handles the delicate balance that is needed between state security/secrecy and the public's right to know about UAP with sensitivity, tending toward the open disclosure side. He makes a strong case that military and intelligence agencies have been involved in the study of UAP for a long time in spite of their official denials.
