3.0 out of 5 stars A nice collection of UFO reports but flawed analysis, 27 Sep 2012
This review is from: A Need to Know: UFOs, the Military and Intelligence (Paperback)
I was gravitated to this book as I was intrigued by encounters between military pilots and UFO's and I thought that this would be an impartial book by an author who's experienced in the field. I'm giving it three stars because of the impressive collection of reports and first hand accounts. It appears that Mr. Good has done some extensive research before writing this book. Unfortunately I find his analysis to be less than balanced and on occasion to be downright faulty. I would agree with a previous reviewer on here in that Mr. Good seems to connect every mysterious aircraft disappearance/crash with UFO activity. This seems to be especially common with some of the accounts from the 1950's. What is startling about this is that anybody who has studied the history of the RAF at the time, and has read accounts from pilots that flew in the era, will tell you that aircraft often crashed due to mechanical faults and pilot error. The fact that Timothy Good seemed to reach such flawed analysis from time to time is even more surprising considering that Bill Gunston, a leading aviation historian, wrote the foreward.
