This is the first book I've read about the Bermuda Triangle, and it was quite fascinating! Mr. Berlitz first describes the disappearances that have occurred in the region, and then discusses the possible causes for them. Some great photographs are also included.

The only reason I've given this book a "4" instead of a "5" is that the author tends to go off on tangents - all of which I found quite interesting - however, I think it may have been better had he left some of this info. to another book.

I would definately recommend purchasing this book (although you'll have to find a used copy) for anyone interested in the Bermuda Triangle, or ancient mysteries in general.

Speaking as a graduate of the USCG/USAF National Search and Rescue School, the whole concept of a "Bermuda Triangle" is a bunch of hokum and this is the terribly researched book that started the nonsense. Any area that has as much novice ship and aircraft trafic is going to have lost vessels. There's actually more of a case for a Cape Sable Triangle, but everyone realizes the North Atlantic has storms!

This whole book was debunked by a research librarian in Arizona who simply did real footnoted research (something Berlitz never thought of) in the following book:

"The Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved" by Larry Kusche

The mystery of the Bermuda Triangle had been told in books, magazine articles, and on television and radio talk shows for several years when, in 1972, Larry Kusche, then a reference librarian, decided to collect all the information he could find on each incident. He made contact with the Coast Guard, the Air Force, Lloyd's of London, and many other agencies. He obtained microfilm copies of newspapers from cities where various incidents had been reported.

This exhaustive research had an unexpected result - it solved the mystery. It also resulted in the publication of The Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved which is now back in print. Larry Kusche's book is more than an investigation of a mystery: it is a fascinating case history of a "manufactured mystery" in the making. It shows how over the years the raw materials of official accident reports, newspaper accounts articles in the mainstream press, and word of mouth have been assimilated into a "false mystery".

The Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved is the only book written on the Triangle that approaches the topic rationally, rather than as another great unsolved mystery of our time.

I love Charles Berlitz' Bermuda Triangle - It's one of the most interesting books I own. The copy I bought was sent to my daughter. I'm sure she'll find it every bit as interesting as I did.

Got exactly what i wanted for a great price . Took a little bit of time for me to receive it in the mail but it didn't matter. I have been waiting to get this book for years ever since the first "bermuda Triangle" tv i watched and it was mentioned within. I believe it was History Channels "History's Mysteries".

If you are totally uncritical thinker, someone who still finds the Easter Bunny stories fascinating, then you'll love this book. There are so many things wrong with it that it's difficult to know where to start. He certainly plays fast and loose with the facts and doesn't let a little lie every now and then get in the way of a good story. For instance, there is the USAF Globemaster disappearance in 1950. It did disappear, but it was on a flight from Newfoundland to Ireland at the time. How in the world does this count as a Triangle disappearance since the route passes nowhere near the Triangle? And the weather always seems to be "calm," but a check with U.S. weather service records shows that this is not the case most of the time. In fact, in one instance (the cargo ship Sandra) weather records show that at the time of the disappearance winds were topping out at 73 mph, only 2 mph below hurricane force! And his co-writer (J. Manson Valentine) tried to capitalize on the financial success of this book by inventing a Great Lakes Triangle, but that book did not sell. Go read Lawrence Kusche's Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved if you would have the truth. If on the other hand you prefer to remain ignorant, well I'm sure that you can find a copy of that Great Lakes Triangle book somewhere.

Format: Paperback
I read this book early in my reseach. After reading his book "Atlantis The Eighth Continent", I was stunned at how good his book was compared to the other 5 I had just read. I had read a few of what I thought great interesting material on ancient history and was quite pleased with them, and some of the interesting factual tidbits they gave...then I read Berlitz' work Atlantis... and immediately grabbed another Berlitz book (this one) to read, wondering if it was a fluke. It was no fluke! Since then I have bought every other work of his I could find. This mans work is well above the other material and it made me hope that I might find other competent researchers works out there.

He brings a vast array of interesting material to support his subject. The fact that this book sold millions of copies is no fluke, and I was truly surprised to find I'm only the second one to review this work (on Amazon.ca) and the first one to recommend it!( and I'm surprised to find only 8 reviews are here on Amazon.com. How soon we forget the masters!!!)

It was his work that slowly made me realize that the ancient history is related to so many current subjects and it was his work that gave me some clues to suggest that there just might be something to all the UFO's out there as well.

This guy approaches his subject rationally and methodically and furthermore he writes very well and his stuff is very readable, and indeed considering his subjects he makes even the potentially dry material exciting! After reading this book I was sold and I have bought every work by this man I could lay my hands on ever since.(except his language books...but you know I may buy one of his language book now!)

Even though this book is now 34 years old it reads FAR better then some of the new ones out there. For UFO and Bermuda Triangle stuff this is an essential book for any research library.
