"How to Talk to an Alien is a pick for any collection strong in UFO accounts and new age topics, and considers whether aliens exist and how their intentions towards mankind may be translated. It's an intriguing approach that neatly moves beyond the basic question of aliens on Earth and delves into communication processes and issues of intention, and comes from a securities litigation attorney who became a trained psychic detective and a remote viewer trained in military methods. Perhaps it's this background that lends an unusual flavor to How to Talk to an Alien, making it far more than a speculative work and lending to a discussion that thoughtfully delves into the mechanics of language and communication between disparate species. New age and linguistics readers alike will find it something different in the field of UFO studies."
--Midwest Book Review
"How to Talk to an Alien is an intimate book that implies a camaraderie of ufologists who are as passionate about their field as any lab researcher. Even for nonbelievers, the author's palpable excitement over the subject matter is endearing and entertaining. Ufologists won't want to miss this work. Anyone interested in aliens or alien contact will find it an interesting read worthy of discussion with fellow enthusiasts."
"In her book, Nancy du Tertre covers the various considerations involved with extraterrestrial communication, including the use of alien technology, ET linguistics, and the possibility of using telepathy and dreams. Her handbook for the future should be on every thinking person's bookshelf."
--Jim Marrs, New York Times best-selling author of Our Occulted History and Alien Agenda
"A fantastic read! Nancy du Tertre's new book How to Talk to an Alien takes ufology to a whole new level. She makes the strong case that if aliens can shut down our nuclear missile defense systems and abduct human beings, we'd better learn how to communicate with them--and fast!"
--George Noory, radio show host of Coast to Coast AM

I am however a very observant person that's cued in on subtle nuances with body language.
After reading this book I really don't feel like I am very observant or sensitive at all any more. It's a little unsettling that I may be hanging out with aliens without knowing it but then again my X always seemed otherworldly to me!
Creepy to say the least. I don't really mean to be shallow but I would feel better if all of these aliens were extremely beautiful women that were here to mate with us average men. I could go for that that as long as I didn't have to know she was an alien unless it was really good for the bottom line.
There's a little pro Christian ideology in this and I really didn't expect this to be apart of knowing how to communicate with alien species as Christianity really doesn't have anything to do with alien beings. The bible has no directions on how to treat beings from somewhere else nor does any religion for that matter so it's a little weird to get around some of that.
The book is ok. Definitley thought I was in for more of a collegiate read considering the Author and all of the alcolades listed about her.
It's a good first effort at this type of book based on the limited amount of information she had.
In “How to Talk to an Alien,” NANCY DU TERTRE takes on the question of human-to-alien communication, but also, the overall nature of just what constitutes an “alien language,” including possible alien alphabets, writing styles and scripts, spoken languages and psychic or telepathic-enabled communications. But there’s even more, such as a gander down through history at ancient forms of writing that have been attributed to “angels,” long before we started framing our reality in terms of modern science.
What’s also fascinating is that du Tertre comes to this issue out of left field — her primary “day job” has nothing to do with flying saucers and extraterrestrial aliens. She’s a high-powered New York securities litigation attorney, and successful businesswoman who stumbled into the weird world of the paranormal more or less by accident.
The author says she had no interest in topics paranormal until age 35. It was then that she was invited to attend a workshop exploring the topic of intuition for psychologists by noted psychotherapist Dr. Ron DeAngelo – she was the only non-psychotherapist invited, but Dr. DeAngelo thought his lawyer friend would find it beneficial. (Du Tertre details this event in her book “Psychic Intuition.”)
To make a long story short, a bizarre experience at the workshop launched du Tertre into an entirely new phase of life – she began to explore her own psychic abilities, studied (and interned) with a famous psychic police detective, took training in REMOTE VIEWING – and about 10 years later emerged with her old paradigms shattered (or at least vastly expanded).
Somewhere along the way du Tertre’s psychic explorations cross-pollinated with the subject of extraterrestrials (or extradimensionals), UFOs and the like, and so now we have a fascinating book that begs the question: “What do the aliens have to say and how do they say it?”
The title is my only quibble with this outstanding book – this is not really a “how to” book and it won’t teach you “how to talk to an alien.” Rather, it’s an overview of cases involving close encounters where people engaged in two-way communications with other nonhuman beings of wide variety – and then seeks to form some theories and opinions about what it all means.
As I was reading, I was reminded of the great theoretical physicist RICHARD FEYNMAN. That’s because he had a knack for asking basic questions that no one else would even think of asking, questions that were quirky and weird, such as “Do numbers come in colors?”
Well, Ms. du Tertre is asking those basic, yet unusual kinds of questions, such as, “Do aliens have mouths with actual tongues in them, vocal cords and a larynx that they can use to make the sounds of speech?” Then she looks at specific cases, from the famous accounts, such as that of Brazilian farmer and lawyer Antônio Vilas-Boas, who was abducted in 1957 and forced to have sex with an alien.
The author is able to give this and many other well-known cases an intriguing new freshness because she is laser-focused on revisiting these events with the purpose of looking specifically at how communications were experienced by the subjects.
She also provides us with new perspectives on monumental historic events, such as the biblical story of the Tower of Babel, and the works of the famous English mathematician-genius and polymath JOHN DEE, adviser to Queen Elizabeth I. Dee is well-known for having “channeled” what is known today as the Enochian Alphabet, also called the “Angelic Alphabet,” the “Divine Language,” or “Language of the Gods.”
Dee reports that he received a visitation from a levitating angelic figure who gave him a kind of scrying stone through which he coaxed out and ratiocinated a symbolic form of transmundane, symbolic language. His description of the events sounds a lot like one of today’s alien visitation scenarios.
It’s all deliciously fascinating, and what’s better is du Tertre’s marvelously fluid and easy writing style which makes this a user-friendly read for any mainstream audience. She never talks down to us, yet provides even intellectuals with plenty of fodder to chew upon.
The only sad thing for me is that the 175 pages melted by for me as quickly as a pleasant dream from an afternoon nap – I was left profoundly wishing that du Tertre could have given us a couple hundred more pages.
If we look at the billions of stars in the galaxy, and the thousands of exoplanets which are now known to exist, it seems reasonable to assume there *could be* life outside Earth. The possibility of interspecies communication with other intelligent species is fascinating; the mechanics daunting. This book, alas, adds little or nothing worthwhile on the topic.
I've been receiving symbols from Star Beings for many years and from many cultures, so it was wonderful
to read Nancy's book which contains great stories about various experiences people have
had with Star Beings. I particularly enjoyed the portions which show the alien writings. Great book.
The most interesting artwork in the book is the Hindu symbol OM which consists of bold lettering in the center with outward branches in a series of concentric circles. The presentation also includes samples of writings like Sumerian, Hebrew, Sanscrit, Phoenician, Gogolitic, Arabic, Japanese and Mesoamerican. In many ways, this book is a linguistic delight for practitioners of the art.
Overall, the author has done a good job of presenting a very complicated subject together with extensive references.College Vibrations: College Success And The Road To Graduation! (The College Experience Book 1)
