Several of the locations explored here have been covered to greater explanation elsewhere - such as Nevada's ultimate secret base, Area 51 - and one could make the strong argument that many of them are ripe enough for an entire book instead of serving only as fodder for an individual chapter in KEEP OUT! But that's the nature of the book - provide the reader with a functional overview of significant details and then push on to the next mystery. These are summaries - as the book's subtitle clearly indicates - so don't look for exhaustive detail. However, if you want a concise snapshot of the public history for Area 51 or Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or even Royal Air Force Base at Bentwaters-Woodbridge, then you can find them covered here. Also, Redfern provides terrific context for the reader to capture the gist of the central mystery surrounding each of the secured locations, and that alone is the greatest service he offers with this release: here are the fine points, but, if you want to know more, you may need to go elsewhere. For those inclined, he provides ample citations in the bibliography.Read more ›
One problem with "alternative explanation" writers is they usually are trying to persuade the reader of an alternative explanation based on scant evidence and thin logic. That's not Redfern's style. One of the hallmarks of a good writer other than an op-ed writer is you can't tell what the writer's opinion is. The writer's viewpoint isn't apparent in the text, and the reader reaches his/her own conclusions.
That is not to say Redfern never draws conclusions. If certain facts don't fit, he'll point this out. If a conclusion suggested by someone else (whether an official explanation or a conspiracy theory) doesn't fly, he'll explain why.
Redfern also digs up facts surrounding a particular issue, and he digs up a lot of facts. His bibliographies tend to be disproportionate to the body of the text, and this book is yet another example of that bibliography on steroids thing he does. For this size book, on these topics, I think a bibliography of 6 to 8 pages would be reasonable. The actual size? 23 pages. Some of these are dubious (e.g., New York Times), and others are more authoritative (e.g., [...]
The premise of this book is exactly what the title and subtitle suggest. The top secret places include Area 51, Hangar 18, HAARP, and Fort Detrick. Not making it on the list is the Men's Room on the top floor of the Treasury Department, but I guess we can let that one slide.Read more ›
