This book by far exceeds others in clarity, honesty, and breath. The book lays its position on the line to let us know just where it stands, namely, skeptical of official, establishment answers to the ufo dilemma. Yet the book does not present a hardcore conspiracy theory. It's commentary is historically informed, smart, and subtle. Time and again, when you think all has been said about crop-circles, cattle mutilation, Billy Miers, etc., this book goes beyond simple, black-and-white analysis to reveal the true complexity of the ufo matter. What this all means, of course, is that as Marrs says toward the end of the book, ufologically speaking things have come to a head. Indeed, this is the one shortcoming of this type of book: there would seem to be no way forward after ufos have subsumed so many mysteries from bridges on the moon to animal multilations in Montana. What's left to the agenda? The book doesn't ask this question explicitly but unlike so many other ufo books, it brings us to the edge where this question must now be asked.
