I like this type of subject matter.
Rod from Melbourne Fla.
Many times throughout the book after a speculation, he very clearly states that he has no supporting evidence for that particular claim.
Richy
Very intriguing book and very easy to read and understand.

This is a fascinating subject, and Mr. Sauder is said to be the alternative literature's top expert on mysterious underground installations, but the book is mostly conjectural - with very little witness testimony and even less certitude.

The author's modus operandi is typically to cite decades-old defense contractor or think-tank briefs mulling deep-underground command bases under Washington DC, super-fast subterranean maglev trains, sub bases on the sea floor, etc. and then conclude, "based on my research," that such things "probably" have been built in total secrecy. This begs credulity on lots of fronts not addressed by Mr. Sauder, from the job of keeping them secret (hordes of builders must have been silenced, somehow, to a man, to say nothing of the thousands needed to staff such bases) to practical logistics: if the nation is really crisscrossed with enormous secret underground bases and tunnels, where did all the excavated earth go? How do they get supplies, food, and power without attracting attention? After all, Jacques Vallee memorably stumped believers in the alleged vast underground Dulce, NM base by asking, "How do they take the garbage out?"

Mr. Sauder reports rumors that the secret Pine Gap intelligence station in the Australian Outback was in line for an underground expansion capable of hosting 250,000 people. How you'd dig such a thing out, or move such a crowd in, without it looking like D-Day to the observant residents of nearby Alice Springs is not discussed.

The good stuff in this book, a handful of tantalizing emails claiming firsthand knowledge of weird subterranean installations, totals about ten pages. The rest is laborious and often repetitive padding (Mr.

After Amazon recommeded this book based on my preferences, I decided to try it out. What turned out to be a random purchase, became one of the most intriguing books I have read in a long time.

Dr. Sauder begins with a background for the subterranian and aquatic bases and their military intentions. He starts the book with a brief overview of WWII German scientists and other government documents that suggest that military installations were built underground. The sequential chapters discuss and speculate over their probable locations and just the overwhelming complexity of underground military projects. After that, he discusses possible underwater bases and their possible locations. Throughout the entire book, there are multiple illustrations that help the reader visualize the vast number of possible designs. In the last chapter, he discusses the possibility of any additional help the military might have had from our "cosmic allies." This chapter is much more vauge, but he does try to reinforce it with witness accounts and other sources.

In the end, I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone seeking to expand their thoughts. After reading this book, I left with a brief background of underground and underwater military installations in North America. This book is very entertaining and informative.

Thank you Amazon.
Dr. Lauder's book, "Hidden in Plain Sight", is a courageous venture in to the deep hidden secrets of the honeycombed pockets of our beautiful planet earth by military and others.
He is now facing trial for his peaceful efforts to bring attention to us, the taxpayers and otherwise homeless Americans, to the mugging of middle class America,
by the stealing of trillions of dollars for underground survival for the selfish, so called elite,
All he asks for, in his own gentle, peaceful, ways is that the truth to be told to all.
Hurry and read "Hidden in Plain Sight" by Dr. Richard Lauder before it is taken off the shelves.

Some really interesting stories and insights; there was much that I had not read anywhere previously on the subject. I especially was interested to learn about past research pointing towards the maximum depth of planned underground and sub-sea floor structures.

Only a couple of criticisms. There was quite a bit of speculation on some subjects where there wasn't a lot of solid info available; understandable but still a bit frustrating. Also the whole book felt a bit like an assembly of stories of various related subjects - it does not feel like a coherent whole. It could use an update with a good editor bringing it together a bit better.

Overall an enjoyable read which I recommend to anyone interested in what might be possible or actually exist with respect to Deep underground bases.

Sauder digs still deeper in his 3rd book on the subject of underground bases. Lots if fascinating anectdotal accounts that help answer some of the questions raised in his previous books. I would love for Dr. Sauder to follow up with a detailed synopsis of just what it is that he believes is going on beneath us.

This book focuses on what lies beneath us that is not spoken about and belies mystery in the sheer fact that it is not discussed openly. The secrecy of tunnels has been around for eons, however whole city storage, transport and armament tunnels throw a complete new light on modern day secrecies. This is a great book and well researched by the writer.
