3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Area 51 on March 19, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
First of all I purchased the Kindle edition. Let me say i had this book on my wish list for some time but it was only available as a hard copy, so I was waiting for a digital edition as I am looking to have all my future book buys in the digital realm. One reason i wanted this one is I am a fan of UFO Hunters and Susan Wright was a guest on the Area 51 episode.

Positives: The book is well written, I like her style of writing it flows well and is organized- a simple thing some of the more popular authors in the genre miss. The information is presented factually though not with a sledgehammer approach. She simply states what she has researched and uncovered. Wright properly references others and does not take credit for that which she did not find herself. In fact she is quick to point out, quite often, when her calls were not returned or the conversation with those contacted was short. Therein lies the problem which defeats the premise of the book...

Negatives: The title is misleading. The introduction gives a teaser into what will be covered and sounds like it will be a great read- everything you ever wanted to know about Area 51. Then it goes a bit off course and does not get back to Area 51 for about 70 pages, or about 1/4 of the book. The reason seems to be that very little new information has been found and thus the book reads like a compendium of all that which is out there. She provides a pretty long history of Roswell, some ancient sighting mentions, a little analysis of some key figures in the UFO world, etc. This is all information which is covered elsewhere, but in all honesty this book is a bit older (1999) and the information may have been "new" when published. I couldn't help but feel let down that this was more a history book than insightful dossier on 51.
