How to milk a mosquito...,
This review is from: Dark Object: The World's Only Government-Documented UFO Crash (Mass Market Paperback)
Alrighty, to begin with, we have the following facts:
something goes and crashes in Shag Harbor and is witnessed by several people along this process. It resembles an orange intensely lit ball and seems to be under intelligent control. Local fishing botas go to the area after the "crash" (if indeed it was a crash) and the military takes up special interest on the issue as it endulges on investigating the incident itself.
Now all this, is documented in the local press (albeit dismissed as "nothing much") as well as in certain official files and becomes local folklore among the people in the area.
Then comes this book. Which adds what to this story. Sadly, absolutely nothing.
For those interested in the phenomenon of UFOs, and especially those that have read some from the massive bulk of books out there about the matter this book here will come across as one pathetic effort to milk a mosquito, i.e., score some cash.
There's no need to try and tell you in detail what the book professes really. The author maintains that the object was indeed an alien craft and that there were possibly not one but two such objects that crashed, but, he offers zilch evidence to back up his claims.
Sceptics will say "as if other books offer more evidence". That's a sad argument too, because other books offer indeed evidence! This book doesnt.
Books like this do more harm than good because they discredit honest UFO research and authorship as they make it look like a cheap way to earn a buck based on a public that feeds on empty stories. It's not like that any anybody who takes this matter seriously knows this all too well.
Even though it comes at a very affordable price avoid this book. Spend your money on books of the genre like "You cant tell the people" or "Aliens" by Colin Wilson to name just a couple that will really offer you evidence and food for thought.
'Nuff, and probably too much, said...
