"At last, a serious and thoughtful book about this controversial subject. Skeptics and true believers will find a treasure trove of insightful and eye opening information. This book is bound to set the gold standard for UFO research."
--Michio Kaku, Ph.D. Author of Physics of the Impossible and host of Sci Fi Science on the Science Channel
"I was astonished by the care and precision of Leslie Kean's research in this terrific book. Her analysis is carefully reasoned and to the point; her craftsmanship in organization and writing are superb. Her expose' raises important questions: Why does the US government create public distrust by neglecting this important topic? Why do its agencies avoid investigating cases of interference with flight operations and instead issue absurd cover-up stories? This book is ultimately an appeal to all scholars for an "extraordinary investigation of an extraordinary phenomenon."
--Rudy Schild, Ph.D., Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
--Miles O'Brien, former CNN space/science correspondent "I find explanations offered by UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists to be implausible, but I also have little patience with "deniers" who ridicule credible reports. Leslie Kean has found a thoughtful path between extreme views, documenting the UFO mystery with intelligence and insight. She makes a strong case for U.S. participation in official, international UFO investigations and for public dissemination of the results. The fascinating first-hand accounts make this a thought-provoking book, even for those of us who don't know much about UFOs."
--Neal Lane, Ph.D., Rice University; former Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy "If you don't know much about UFOs, you must read this book. If you think that UFO reports are nonsense, this book will disabuse you of that notion. Leslie Kean's UFOs informs readers at every level of knowledge and belief. It could, and should, become the "tipping point" that leads to public acceptance of the reality of UFOs and all of its implications."
--Don Donderi, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, McGill University (Ret.) "In an area of study where there aren't many, this is a serious book. It is credible, clear, and compelling, without any farfetched jumps in logic and assumption. Its credibility begins on the first page with John Podesta and continues with case studies of extraordinary quality to the very end. Leslie Kean not only makes the case for, but calls for, a whole new concrete and realistic perspective on UFOs that has more honesty and integrity than any other that I have read. This is a book for anyone with an open mind."
--John L. Petersen, Founder & President of The Arlington Institute "In these pages we are confronted head-on by the UFO phenomenon as revealed firsthand by highly credible government officials and military aviation experts. Their credibility and integrity cannot be questioned, and their firsthand observations cannot be ignored. Leslie Kean provides a challenging analysis and she writes with penetrating depth and insight. The revelations in this book constitute a watershed event in lifting the taboo against rational discourse about this controversial subject."
--Harold E. Puthoff, Ph.D., Director of The Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin "When I started reading Leslie Kean's UFOs, I found it very difficult to stop. This is an unprecedented assessment of what may be the greatest challenge ever presented to mankind. In an outstanding piece of investigative journalism, Kean provides a well-written and convincing appeal for change in dealing with a phenomenon that can no longer be ignored."
--Jean-Claude Ribes, Ph.D., Paris Observatory (Ret.) "For anyone who questions why - after more than fifty years of denial, ridicule, and dismissal - many scientists, academics, political figures, and military personnel still insist that the subject of UFOs should be taken seriously, this book provides the answer. Leslie Kean offers compelling documentation that physical objects, with flight characteristics not yet achievable by known technology, are being routinely reported in our skies. They represent a mystery that needs to be solved."
--Stuart Appelle, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Science and Mathematics, State University of New York, Brockport "Leslie Kean's astonishing book is the finest piece of investigative journalism ever written on this subject. She has an incomparable ability to 'give voice' to a constituency of exceptionally qualified and unbiased first-hand observers. They are not from the fringe, not groupies, and not delusional. Rather, they are high-level military, intelligence, aerospace, and government officials who speak with authority while providing reports that document actual, physical craft. Kean's book represents the first important step toward a new U.S. government openness about UFOs. It brings forward a reality otherwise buried for far too long inside official mystery, and elevates the discourse above that of small-minded public discussions."
--Christopher C. Green, MD, Ph.D., Harper University Hospital, Wayne State University School of Medicine From the Hardcover edition.

It doesn't get any better than this when it comes down to the definitive 5% of sightings that come from first hand professional eyewitnesses in their own words. Leslie Kean's research and access to high level documents puts this book in a league of it's own. She is without question top of the league when it comes to the access she got on the subject of UFO's. Once you start to read this book you just don't want to put it down.

Anyone who doubts or dismisses the UFO phenomenon won't after reading this. Very well written and researched by a top level journalist and several high ranking military personnel there are no flights of fancy here, just solid, well documented facts. If you prefer to pretend that UFOs don't exist, are a joke or have no relevance to us then don't read this book

This book is actually a very good read. It sticks to the facts and doesn't run away with speculation,scare mongering or fantasy at all. Maintaining a fair, open minded view of the UFO phenomenon based on the evidence these sightings present. It doesn't take sides of the sceptic,dogged denier or fantasist at all but just presents the subject quite neutrally based on the facts these sightings come with. It certainly provides a lot of common sense food for thought rather than a load of half baked fantasy or stubborn denial of the phenomenon ever occurring at all. Very interesting read.
