The evidence that Good has amassed is too overwhelming to ignore and it is clear that a more open debate is long overdue.”
Above Top Secret is a bible for UFO watchers.”
An obsessively researched look at what British sky-watcher Good (Alien Contact, 1993, etc.) deems ample international evidence of UFO visitations since the 1930s, and the repeated official denials that they ever happened. "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head," declared former Canadian Minister of Defence Paul Hellyer in 2005. Good methodically lays out similar testimony from pilots, military men in air and sea, civilian observers, surgeons who operated on the extraterrestrials, generals and presidents, accompanying their words (some from sworn affidavits) with meticulous footnotes, photos, drawings and copies of documents. During World War II, small, seemingly remote-controlled flying objects dubbed "foo-fighters" created a nuisance for pilots. In the summer of 1946, a rash of sightings of "ghost rockets" across Scandinavia and other parts of Europe alarmed the U.S. military, which blamed them on the Soviets. Good believes UFO incursions were common in 1940s New Mexico, the site of U.S. atomic testing, and avers that the debris found near Roswell in 1947, quickly identified by the military as fragments from a military balloon, was in fact the remains of a flying-saucer crash. He chronicles alien-disc sightings during the Cold War, suggests that Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy were taken to disc-landing sites and maintains that since the 1940s, aliens have been communicating "with an elite group of U.S. military and scientific intelligence personnel [and] there has been a project was actually motivated by growing concerns about alien hostility, the author adds. The bizarre crash of a cigar-shaped craft near Varginha, Brazil, in January 1996 stranded strange creatures needing medical attention. Good excerpts some chilling material from an interview conducted by a fellow UFOlogist with comments are conflated into quotes collectively attributed to "Medical Personnel." The author certainly knows his stuff, and to his credit is keenly aware of the importance of documentation, however specious some of it may seem to the unconverted.”
In this exhaustive and provocative polemic, Good (Above Top Secret, Alien Liaison), UFO researcher extraordinaire, endeavors to demonstrate that incontrovertible proof of UFOs is being buried by a global conspiracy of governments, academia and the media. Good catalogues hundreds of sightings of unidentified flying objects from the 1920s through the present and marshals scores of declassified government reports, news stories and eyewitness affidavits to support his often-controversial contentions: not only are aliens here, but the U.S. military has established contact with them; President Eisenhower met with aliens in 1954 at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.; President Kennedy viewed alien bodies at an air force medical facility in Florida; President Nixon arranged for comedian Jackie Gleason to view alien bodies in 1973. Good emphasizes a lengthy record of credible witnesses, including military and airline pilots, who have reported unexplained phenomena, but he fails to provide incontrovertible evidence of UFOs, extraterrestrials or a global conspiracy of secrecy. Moreover, he ignores contradictory testimony, exaggerates rumors and circumstantial evidence, and reprises old charges. Nonetheless, UFO enthusiasts will appreciate this comprehensive and spirited UFO defense and the hundreds of supporting documents reproduced within.”
The author does an excellent job of documenting cases and providing FACTS to back them up.
Again, there is no new material here (except the fact that there were numerous aircraft crashes in the 1940's, that may or may not be UFO related).
It's a reference book rather than a novel, to be read in bite-sized chunks rather than one long session.

As a former alien abduction victim, I was looking forward to this book. But it has very little insight and seems to be culled from other areas. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Bartok Kinski
I'm quite fond of Good's research into UFO reports and sightings--reports that have not been made readily available to the public. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Nat Brothers

Mr Good is a prolific author on this subject. His intelligent reasoning and his reliance of factual documentation place his research in a category of the first order. Read morePublished on December 28, 2012 by JimInRaleigh
