Outstanding collection of UFO cases.,
This review is from: Strange Skies: Pilot Encounters with UFOs (Paperback)
I'm glad to see this excellent UFO book back in print. I had the pleasure of first reading this book on a flight to Crete which certainly added to my enjoyment! Jerome Clark is a very sober, rational UFO expert who is not one for taking every UFO account at face value. What surprised me somewhat about the first half of the book is that Clark takes a quite skeptical viewpoint of some of the most famous UFO cases, such as the one involving the death of Thomas Mantell.
However, the dubious UFO incidents are overshadowed by some truly remarkable encounters. People with a long standing interest in UFOs may well have read or heard of some of the cases, such as the Japan Airlines incident over Alaska or the one involving fighter jets from the Iranian Air Force. Clark describes each incident in compelling detail without resorting to sensationalism or trying to impose his own conclusions on the reader.
I would recommend this book to all people interested in the UFO phenomena, especially those new to the subject who are looking for a rational, level-headed overview.
