Product description

Review

"When I first saw this book, I was inexplicably delighted. I think it's that vaguely ominous saucer hovering there in the cover image, and the textbookish way it's all presented. It reminds me of how books on mysteries and supernatural phenomena delighted me when I was young. ..In some ways, "UFO Investigations Manual" is the perfect book for the adult version of that mystery-loving kid." "- i09"

""UFO Investigations Manual" is really a must have for anyone with an interest in space and the supernatural. It is an entertaining and educational read that doesn't try to mock believers or argue against skeptics. It gives an all-encompassing overview of the fascinating realm of aliens. Whether you lean more toward the Mulder or Scully end of the "I want to believe" spectrum, this manual will give you plenty to think about." "- HeGeek SheGeek"

"In this attractive and well-illustrated, concise volume, Watson ("The Alien Deception") presents a strong overview of the UFO phenomenon, covering everything from reported abductions to official investigations to physical evidence. The book includes a general history of reported sightings by date and county. For those interested in becoming UFO investigators there are several chapters on the classification and identification of UFOs as well as an appendix on how to produce a UFO investigation report. To round out the discussion, Watson explores alternative theories and explanations for the objects, considering evidence that they could be natural or human made, rather than extraterrestrial. He points out that interpretations of UFOs have always been shaped by social anxieties of the times, and that there have been periods when the number of abductions reported would have required legions of spaceships transporting people. The author also shows how simple it is to fake UFO photos. This accessible, attractively laid out title covers a lot of ground and stays relatively captivating throughout. Reference sources include books, websites, and blogs. VERDICT A great starter book for those interested in getting a taste of ufology, recommended for public library collections." a Library Journal"
