That being said, I do not agree with their perspective on certain things, and I felt some items needed further research. I am a New Mexico native. My father did contract work on and off at Los Alamos National Labs and at the Trinity site. My mother worked at the headquarters on Kirtland (KAFB). I would discuss UFO's with my mother, and I was aware (in the 1960's) of not just the Roswell incident but other NM UFO accounts. Other kids in my school knew about the Roswell UFO event. Derek Gilbert infers the Roswell incident would have dropped off the radar if it had not been for the yearly UFO festival. I disagree. The Roswell UFO event was not a secret that just popped up again in the 1970's after the town decided to capitalize (not a sin) on the 1947 UFO event. After all, in the 50's and 60's few outsiders were familiar with NM events. Even Santa Fe was unknown. For that matter, some people didn't realize NM was a state. When I was in Florida, I was told that I spoke "good English." I'm not Hispanic. I've had to argue with people that NM is a state, so please send my package. It's no wonder that Roswell was off the national map during this period. Local television stations periodically would air in the 60's, "Did You Know NM has been visited by UFO's?" Yes, Roswell. Maybe outside of NM it was unknown, but not surprising since NM in general was and is a mysterious land to some. Starting in the '70's with the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, some people (not all) began to realize New Mexico is a state and yes, you can visit without a passport. So I'm not surprised that the Roswell festival became popular along with other events in NM. I am confident that even if there had been no festival, the incident would not have faded over time. Too many New Mexicans knew about the event.
While we're mentioning NM, let's scoot over to Dulce. I don't know if Dulce has an underground base; however, many strange events occur in the region including the Taos hum (which is not far from Dulce as the crow flies). Derek Gilbert concludes that the Bennewitz case demonstrated that Dulce has no base. Maybe, but perhaps the government used Mr. Bennewitz to prove only crazy people believe in the Dulce base. Ignore it, folks. Nothing to see here. Move along. Perhaps, it would be wise to talk to Native Americans living in the area before pronouncing it a fraud. And perhaps, one shouldn't quote inane questions like, "How do they take out the garbage?" After all, how do you take out the garbage in the space station? The Artic research station? Just because you don't know how something is accomplished, doesn't negate its existence.
I also had a problem with a statement Mr. Gilbert made. He wrote, "Contactees may have various reasons for concocting stories of ETI encounters from just wanting to feel special to out-and-out delusions resulting from psychosis." Now that took a lot of chuzpah. Rule 101. Identify your readership and try not to insult them, especially the ones that have endured a traumatic event. Too many inductees face disbelief and mockery from friends, family and even officials. Although Mr. Gilbert admits some may be genuine, he has already planted the seed of disbelief. Do you really want to add to these victim's misery? I would suggest if any readers have had frightening UFO encounters that they would do something proactive. As Mr. Gilbert mentions, the name of Jesus stops these entities. If you don't know Jesus, now would be a good time. Acquire a Bible or borrow one from the library. Read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and discover why the name of Jesus is so powerful against these evil entities. You could also contact L.A. Marzulli online. He has done quite a bit of work in this area and would be able to help you.
One last picky note, and let's get this out of the way. There are a few grammatical errors. I suspect it was from a not-so-complete proofing of the final manuscript. At this point, most writers just want to send their work off to the printer asap. After ten minutes of reading to your partner--"Quote, capital S-t-a-y home, comma, close quote, she said, period."--you begin to lose it (okay, five minutes for me, but I was working on a university catalog). So, I don't blame anyone for taking shortcuts. It's a good way to clear a room. Just walk in with your manuscript. "Sorry, honey, not tonight. I've got a headache." Still, correct grammar is important. After all, next thing you know you're driving around with a bumper sticker with a paw print and advertising, "Who rescued who?"
Finally, after you digested all the chapters, you get dessert. Josh Peck has written a wonderful section in the appendix, "A Planet on Earth Called Heaven." He even puts it in a language us Flatlanders can comprehend. Thanks, Josh!
All in all, I recommend this book, even if it can be dogmatic in spots. It has a different take on the usual UFO controversy and something you won't find other authors attempting.
