Format: Hardcover
In my view words fail to describe the contribution this book has made
towards supporting the dynamic reality of the alien presence. The
academic credentials of the authors speak for themselves and are, I
think, unparalleled. The book maintains throughout a "no
nonsense" tone. Sensationalism is totally absent and yet the
pages are saturated with electrifying excitement. There are no
"fairy tales" told here.
For me the high point of the book
was the chapter entitled "Case 42 - the Contactee"...but
almost all the others followed close behind.
As one who has been
monitoring alien activities around the globe for more than thirty
years I am of the opinion that "Beyond Earth" is a work that
anyone even remotely interested in the alien presence would wish to
read. Hopefully the publisher will one day come to the same conclusion.

Format: Hardcover
Another quality tome on the study of the UFO phenomena. A very no-nonsense approach to a difficult subject. Worthy of an in-depth read by anyone who is attempting LEGITIMATE research in this field. The details of each incident jump off the page and truly make the reader question a lot of preconceived notions. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
1973 was the year that shattered the consensus that the UFO mystery had been solved by the Condon Report. Beyond Earth has a decent enough summary of the history of UFO sightings post-1947, plus it contains a thorough investigation of the Pascagoula incident including testimony from Charlie Hickson. In addition, the authors draw on the research of Warren Smith to provide extensive details of the apparent abduction of cop Herbert Schirmer. Plus, a chapter recounts details of incidents from South America, as investigated by Flying Saucer Review. There are also some details of the Marjorie Fish star map, completed in 1972, some details of cop Jeff Greenhaw's photos of an apparent alien and his subsequent misfortune and the thoughts of USAF chief of staff George S. Brown on how UFOs plagued the Air Force in Vietnam during the war. It is a well written and engaging book. The authors mention towards the end that there is "a rumor that the Pentagon is covertly supporting a series of films for TV that will tell us UFOs are real." One of the highlights is the account of the edition of the Dick Cavett show that had as guests Hickson, astronaut Jim McDivitt (who sighted a UFO from the Gemini 4 spacecraft), a helicopter pilot who almost collided with a UFO, J. Allen Hynek and Carl Sagan. (UFO Contact at Pascagoula is also worth a look for more on the intriguing Pascagoula incident.)
