Interesting and informative account

If you watched the recent TV series Project Blue Book, then you will not be disappointed in this in-depth review. Not always an easy listen in some parts due to the nature of how reports were recorded or classified , but overall very intetesting and informative.

Interesting but outdated

There is no doubt that this was groundbreaking at the time. This material is invaluable for those interested in this phenomenon.

There is nothing weaving things together really.
It’s simply a collection of accounts of ufo sightings.

Its the basis for everything we know today about ufos but to listen to it as a Audio book was overwhelming. It would be a great reference journal of events not necessarily a story.

Also given the age of the material, we have heard these accounts many times in both fiction and non fiction mediums which were very entertaining.

I am thankful for this book and for everything Hynek did but this was not exactly what I was looking for as far as a novel

Detailed and well thought out presentation.

None of us are gullible fools (generally), and when people say UFOs are nothing, certain points of logic stand up and say, 'actually, have you thought about this?!?'

There's a real, ongoing phenomenon here, that still affects people, through 'wtf' worldview changing moments, to ridicule from work, media and family/friends quarters.

Listen to this book in bite size chunks, as it's a lot of data, that if done in one sitting or prolonged listen time, will test the best focus or attention spans.

I do recommend this. Data is key to figuring out what, why and where from, the UFO phenomenon is.

excellent book. shhhh

this book is great for everyone. but mostly for those who have not seen a UFO. for those who have like myself it just verifies the fact that they do exist and that no one really knows. and if they do they can't talk about it. The government obviously can't care less look at where reports go nowadays. nowhere. the Navy just released the UFO video and validated its authenticity. they are watching but for whatever reason they have not just come out and said hi. they are best seen after 12:30 p.m. on a clear starry night get used to what aircraft looks like and if you're not in a moa, then what is that you saw with no strobes high up but disappeared, but not shooting at crossing fizzling out like a meteor? what was that thing

Removes all doubt about the UFO cover-up

Hynek helps us read between the lines of the government's dismissal of UFOs in its official reports. Thorough analysis of how the government has deceived us on this topic.

If there were only a single book

...you could read that exposed thetopic , this would be the book. Hynek and Project Bluebook plated it as straight as they and he could. He was a trusted source. Read the damn book.

The Coupe de Grâce to "It Can't Be, Ergo It Isn't"

It is a seminal work that illuminates the merit of further scientific study of unidentifieds.
