Publisher's Summary

Bob Lazar was a brilliant young physicist that found himself employed at a top-secret facility in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas. Under the watchful eye of the government elite, he is tasked with understanding an exotic propulsion system being used by an advanced aerospace vehicle he is told came from outer space. 

The stressful work and long, odd hours start to wear on Bob and he becomes concerned for his safety. He tells his wife and a couple close friends about what he's doing in the desert, and his employers find out and are furious. When they station goons outside his house, Bob seeks help from wealthy UFOlogist, John Lear, who encourages Bob to take his story to award-winning investigative journalist George Knapp at KLAS-TV, a CBS affiliate. 

To prove he's telling the truth, Bob takes a group of people out into the desert to watch a test flight of the "flying saucer." On the way home, they are stopped by the police, who notify the base, and Bob loses his job. In a series of interviews with CBS TV, Bob Lazar then blows the lid off "Area 51", blows the whistle on the effort to conceal this craft from the American people, and blows up his career as a top physicist.

Great summary of Bob Lazar's story

This man is a living legend: he physically handled, dismantled, and reverse-engineered gravity controlling alien technology, turned a whistle-blower, had several close calls with the rogue agents running the program to silence him, and yet ultimately lived to tell his amazing story!!!

I'm a long-time Bob Lazar fan. I've read his account in-depth and watched/listened to practically every video and interview he's done in the last ~30 years -- I'm talking Art Bell back in the day. I even owned the Estes kit of the Sport model UFO back in the early 90's. So let me assure you that this book is entirely consistent with the previously released details from Bob throughout the years. While many, many of Bob's statements and specific details have been proven true over the last three decades, what has been one of the most powerful aspects of his story has been his unwavering consistency over all these years. This book continues that quality of consistency.

However, there were a few minor but interesting details missing, but they did not alter or detract from the story:
- After he drank the 'pine sol' liquid as part of the health screen, it gave him an adverse reaction shortly afterwards and his kidneys were in terrific pain. I believe his friend Gene Huff drove him to the hospital because he couldn't drive himself. The symptoms later cleared up with no other effects.
- When he was inside the Sport model craft (the first and only time), he said that he felt an oppressive sense of fear, like humans didn't belong inside there. This has always intrigued me, and although he's mentioned this before in interviews, I always wanted him to elaborate more on this, and was hoping he would address it more in his book, but it didn't get a mention.
- Bob has had mixed feelings towards John Lear over the years -- some of the tape transcripts from the early 90's (outline for a movie script that never happened) tell a humorous, strained relationship Bob and Gene had with John. Maybe his feelings have changed over the years and he has chosen to keep those views to himself now.
- The immediate aftermath of him coming out public with his story -- he did hypnotic regression to recall specific details, he was approached more than a few times for movie deals, etc.
- Probably most important missing detail was the samples of element 115 that allegedly went missing between Los Alamos and S4, but there's probably VERY good reasons why that was completely skipped over. This may come back into public awareness 40 years from now after Bob Lazar passes away...

There were a few new details for me, such as the tragic loss of his first wife, and some of the anecdotes from his childhood and playing with chemistry sets.

I really would have liked if Bob had included more about the years after this whole story broke his life apart. I know he's a fairly private person and doesn't want attention, so I can understand that. But I would have liked if he could've included a few meaningful paragraphs about his life in New Mexico, and then later moving up to Michigan, and maybe even get into the whole Jeremy Korbell documentary project and what that stirred up.

The world of freedom-loving, independent-thinking people owe Bob Lazar a huge debt of gratitude for sharing his story.

A real let down for me.

I have been intrigued by Lazar's story for a long time, and will be up front in saying that after the documentary, I had really high hopes for added detail I'd thought this book would provide.

Unfortunately, that's not the case.

If anything, what he does elaborate on takes his story from the realm of believable to sounding like total b.s.

Don't waste your credit.

History from the heart-Excellent!

Very few men can say as much - even fewer dare. Through the years while witnessing this man's testimony I've always carried much respect for Bob Lazar. His heart opens up beyond compare and to doubt his words only robs you of the hope that mankind really does have hope. I'm so glad he has chosen to write this book and set the record straight. Though after reading or listening will more than likely send more questions than answers to your mind; I can assure you that no question of Mr Lazar's credibility will arrive. This is a man that braves many hardships to shine a light on unethical government behavior as well as real technological advances. - not for himself but every single human being on Earth and Earth's stratosphere.
The reader did a great job. One of the best I've heard reading/performing an audio book. This is now one of my favorites!
I now need to get my hands on a signed book!

It’s a sad tale

Not quite what I expected ... it’s a tale of a man who lived his life by knee jerk reaction having left his brain in the freezer and in the process he destroyed his life. I’m not sure any of this is true because the way he tells it he supposedly is followed, tailed and even shot to keep him quiet before he’s even shared the secret yet after he’s told his secret nothing happens ... many things in his story just don’t add up.

I didn’t have much doubt until after this.

I’ll need to listen to it twice, various red flags, I’ve enjoyed the interviews and documentaries, but... He told Rogan he had majestic clearance, here he never fully got it. He also left out where he got the 115 and all of that. I personally feel he’s hiding things as to not get in trouble or sound even more crazy, but now I have a small amount of doubt.

I’ve always wondered if S4 wasn’t just to show this tech , keep the scientists separated intentionally, and monitor them, almost like a test. The ones who figure it out go on to the next level. Maybe Bob was a puppet, just to leak some information to the public intentionally. Just interesting ideas. Nice writing though, but I know he left a huge amount of stuff out.

Bob’s Full Story

Great listen, and a more in depth run through of events for Bob Lazaar’s story. If you’ve heard the story before then all the points are here, but it fills in all the rest. Also a couple new things here and there. Awesome book.

a very important account..

probably a true story but with lots of unnecessary fabricated minor details that i hope wont detract from the important bits. Recalling a word for word conversation about a silly unrelated topic, i dont feel helps the stories authenticity. I sense Bob has been heavily influenced by the producer to include and pad out bits with mundane detail. The Joe Rogan podcast was a much better account! Even better had that 'other guy' not been there.

on the whole, great work.

Just listen to the podcast...

Wanted more from the book, after listening to the Joe Rogan podcast, I sought out the book but I didn't come away from it feeling like I gained any more than what I'd heard. There is also the Netflix documentary which you should check out...book is fine but just as much as his personal life in it than his actual - and brief - time on S4. An okay listen but not exactly compelling.

Been a fan of Bob Lazar 's story for a while now. This in depth view into the whole Area 51 event is great.
Got me through a whole shift at work. Looking forward to continuing tomorrow morning.

Thanks.

a good listen and what I expected ..abit drawn out

Let's face it most of you will be downloading this to hear about area 51 and what bob encountered . As you can probably guess this makes up about 20 mins of the audio book, with the rest about him being followed,family life and regrets braking his story.Its still good though and worth the download

the information about ufos are limited and yet it reads like a ufo fiction story, it was easy to listen to and even the most basic of information held my attention which is hard.

I Couldn't Stop Listening!

Bob Lazar's story has always captivated me ever since I first heard it when I was younger. If the accounts presented here are correct, and I believe they are, the implications are truly incredible. The way Bob presents his journey in this book is amazing, and the narration made it easy to listen to. Highly recommended if you're interested in science and the UFO phenomenon.

Let down by narrator.

Brilliant story, however the narrator is unbearable. So robotic and lacking context cues.

Would be better off reading children's books. Glad i got it for free.

It’s a good story whether you believe it or not.

Was a believer until I listened to this

Very interesting, and I have been a fan of Lazar's. However, he doesn't describe things properly, how they put the fuel in the propulsion system, how they turned it on or off, these are only small discrepancies among many. He makes out Larry to be clueless. It just seems to lack details that someone who has studied the craft would know, but, I don't know. I just can't believe it with full confidence anymore which is upsetting.

Also recalls the exact words of conversations instead of focusing on the importants.
