Do you believe in Aliens? That might be a little hard after reading this book. All of the big alien and conspiracy theories are examined and discussed in these pages. If you want the truth, despite any hopes, then read the book that makes more sense than aliens among us. The book doesn't cover everything, but what it misses is small in comparison. Read, enjoy, learn.

This book is for uneducated skeptic. People with common sense don't need to read this book. This book only shows author arrogance with their knowledge to ridicule other. They seems don't even know the official hearing with US congress regarding this issues. NOT WORTH TO READ.

Particularly interesting for the way it traces various tropes in UFO and alien reports back to their origins in pop culture, meaning movies and TV.

Well, I did read the book. The manuscript could have used a better editor, proof reader, and fact checker: there was one passage that turned into gobbly-gook, and Joni Mitchell, not Judy Collins, wrote "Both Sides, Now." The most interesting parts of the book for me were the parts about UFO religions. Over all, a worthwile read. BTW, there is someone running for congress who says that she was abducted by (blond and tall) aliens when she was a child, and still has telepathic communications with them occasionally. They have let her know that "God" is an universal energy. Figures she is a Republican.

Although I haven't - - nor intend to - - read this book, a suitable opposing title might be:
WMDs in Iraq, Economic WMDs on Wall Street [credit derivatives] and Aliens Masquerading as Presidents from Johnson on . . .
