Second good "Sightings" book
on April 6, 2006
This is the second book based on the "Sightings" TV series. This one is devoted solely to UFO story segments from the show. (To clarify: The actual cover to this book is red in color and features flying saucers, an alien face, and a highway. In some cases on Amazon, the wrong book cover is shown or no cover is shown.)
In some ways this book is more professionally presented than the first one: the design inside looks slightly better and the photos are in one section now, instead of two. Like the first book, it is well-written and a good read. Henry Winkler (yeah, "The Fonz" and producer of the "Sightings" show) wrote the foreword, which is interesting to read.
I have a few criticisms that keep me from giving the book a perfect score: 1) the photos should have been in color; 2)the small boxes of info after every story in the first book are not present here; 3)some of the stories seem to be more skeptical than the first book (they seem to favor the government technology angle over alien space craft). Also, there is only one topic. It IS my favorite topic, but the variety of paranormal topics presented in the first book more closely resembles the TV show's presentation. Therefore, I enjoyed the first book a little more than this one.
Still, it is a good read and worth buying.
