I also researched Hoagland online and am a little confused about his credentials. While he seems to be making an excellent case, I do not have the background to determine if it is factual.
I would think that someone at NASA would look into his theories, unless he is correct that they do not want the truth exposed. If you are interested in opening your mind to other explanations, this is definitely one for you.
Unfortunately, Kindle formatting does not display the many photo images adequately. Even on the larger format of an iPad, the images are not clear, nor detailed enough to be viewed in sufficient detail, and their access is often difficult when they fall on the edge of the page. Even viewing the images is more difficult, because regularly the image description is on the following page and the reader has difficulty knowing which image goes with which description!
For best appreciation of the material, I would strongly recommend reading the largest printed version available, with glossy photos, which could better make the attempted arguments.
On the other hand, the research the authors did on the dark figures associated with the founding of NASA is well explained, and as frightening as I first remembered these magi to be from other sources I've read on the topic. They don't include some of the reports about von Braun's monstrous treatment of the Jewish slave laborers in his rocket factory caverns while serving the Third Reich.
The book's conspiracy theorizing goes from thick to thin in other areas. Masonic rituals? Yea, rah. Moon landing fakery? Not so much. And the dissing given to the late Tom VanFlandern seems a bit petty and spiteful. Makes Hoagland sound like a bit of a thin-skinned narcissist.
But maybe it's me that's just imagining things...
If people want to know what they've paid for and are not getting, this book enumerates a long list - with photos. But there's more. What did astronauts actually see on the Moon? What's littering the planet Mars? What about 'Data's Head,' secret societies, Egyptian gods, Nazi influence, deliberate lies and clumsy cover-ups?
This book was a page-turner. Just when the reader thinks one outrage has been uncovered, tracks lead to yet another. Hoagland is a superb detective; I'm glad he's on 'our' side.
Did the astronauts really perform Masonic rituals on the Moon? Was the movie The Shining a tribute to the moon landing? In other books, Hoagland lays out sacred geometry on Mars, as if to say an ancient civilization may have lived there, and speculates that NASA knows all about it, but is hiding something big from the people who are footing the bill for space exploration; you and me.
Gotta read to find out what.
