"David Jacobs has spent his career as a history professor at a major university, and--what matters most of all--he backs his claims with an impressive mass of evidence.…Jacobs treats his subject with ethnographic depth and detail, but without academic ponderousness." --Thomas E. Bullard, PhD, board member, Center for UFO Studies and Fund for UFO Research and author of UFO Abductions: The Measure of a Mystery
"Once we accept the extraterrestrial origin of UFOs and that the beings can act purposefully as rational beings invariably do, it is only a small step from UFO phenomena to the co-residency of the two species. It is this logical consistency that makes Walking Among Us constantly grip our imagination with such vengeance." --Young-hae Chi, D Phil, faculty of Oriental studies, University of Oxford
"Walking Among Us is a chronicle of human experience that contradicts every current theory about the universe that we think we live in. Jacobs' human observers have experienced a concealed reality that is literally next door to some of us, and that he believes is about to interact, secretly and insidiously, with the rest of us. Walking Among Us explains why extraterrestrial UFOs are here, who is aboard them, and what they are doing. To put it mildly, the evidence from the people that Jacobs has interviewed shows that the extraterrestrials are up to no good. You will find Walking Among Us hard to put down. If enough of us read and pay attention to the evidence in this book, we might be able to avoid the disaster that its evidence portends." --Don C. Donderi, PhD, associate professor (retired) of psychology, McGill University, Montreal, author of UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions
"David Jacobs has written an extremely important book about UFO abductees and the meaning of their abductions." --Ron Westrum, PhD, emeritus professor of sociology, Eastern Michigan University

Granted, most if not all "evidence" is from life long UFO abductees, and usually his best subjects provide the most material. What is chilling about this scenario is how uniform accounts are from many subject/abductees who do not and have never known one another. While some "events" no doubt can be fantasy, and misleading pure crap from unscrupulous hypnotists who are out for their own agendas, such as the popular theory that our alien visitors are benevolent and here to "help" us. It's nice, but channelling (the fiction that a poorly guided hypnosis subject can often report as "fact") and just plain lying mar the approach from these New World "positives", as Jacobs refers to them.
This is as much a warning as we may get. The cute little gray aliens we see in movies and most common descriptions are part of a sinister scheme to achieve total control of the human race through breeding and hybridization. Without getting too descriptive, Jacobs theorizes a very frightening situation that could possibly be underway as we exist right now.
And really, how far fetched is it that some alien species is out to colonize or otherwise subject entire planetary intelligent life to their objectives and uses? May I remind those who are laughing right now that we as humans have been doing exactly the same thing since we became homo sapiens. First it was continental settlement, then using the Asian/Indian continent to settle Europe, all of Asia and Australia, and finally thanks to a land bridge that once existed between the now Russian and U.S. mainlands in the Arctic, made way all the way to Tierra Del Fuego.
Then of course, came politicians, war mongers and nationalism and tribalism that guaranteed the world would be subject to attack from within from the first use of a any kind of weapon against our fellow human to today's threats of nuclear holocaust. The space program was hailed as a wonderful science event, and it was, but it was as much about conquest of first the Moon, and eventually traveling to Mars and beyond the Solar System in search of life and resources. Is anybody naive enough to think that Earthlings wouldn't plunder and exploit whatever it found useful on other worlds if we were sure we could beat any civilization that may already be there?
So to me, the possibility of our planet being subject to a much more sophisticated and secretive program that may be attempting the same thing is logical and while it can't be proven at the moment, to ignore the stories and warnings this book covers would be monumentally stupid. We know UFO's are out there. There is no doubt in my mind about that, because possible millions have seen these craft and very reputable folks at that from all levels of society. "Walking Among Us" is indeed a troubling book. Jacobs combines his scholarly knowledge with straight forward narrative that is compassionate, entirely selfless, and very insightful. Nothing of the usual sensationalist yellow rag reporting exists here, and Jacobs himself admits he is very troubled and knows people will be at the best, skeptic, and at the worst, consider him bonkers. That humility and earnestness merits respect, whether we "believe" or not. I recommend starting with "Secret Lives", which focused on procedures on abductees, then to "The Threat" which goes further into the details, and "Walking Among Us", which is the culmination and ultimate warning he is brave enough to risk publishing.
Dr. Jacobs describes extensive interaction between abductees and what he calls "Hubrids" or human-hybrids. These are a final step in the incorporation of some type of alien genetics into a being who is apparently fully alien, but at the same time has all the characteristics of humans. He describes their apparent agenda as that of integration into human society, followed by takeover of our world.
Do other researchers see similar patterns? In our own research, we have encountered similar reports of what I refer to as "human-aliens" - apparently anomalous people that have human appearance but vary alien behavior and abilities. So are the narratives Jacobs describes accurate? Are they the full story? If so, is the peril Jacobs describes as real as he portrays? Again, I don't know, but I sure hope not.
Does the hypnotic process Jacobs uses result in accurate information? Is the scenario in this book credible? Are there other possible explanations for the close encounter phenomenon? Is the "alien agenda" truly as stealthy and malevolent as Jacobs portrays? Or are other more likely motives behind whatever force or intelligence is behind it? I for one, do not know what the truth is behind the close encounter phenomenon. So perhaps it has at least some claim to being correct.
The ideas in this book will require a lot of corroboration. But whether or not the scenario turns out to be true, "Walking among us" presents a chilling new step in UFO and close encounter research. And in the end, I sure hope he's wrong.
