Publisher's Summary

Now on audio! The best-selling exposé that ends the decades-old controversy surrounding the infamous and mysterious crash of an unidentified aircraft at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

Backed by documents declassified through the Freedom of Information Act, Colonel Philip J. Corso (Ret.), a member of President Eisenhower's National Security Council and former head of the Foreign Technology Desk in the US Army, has come forward to reveal his personal stewardship of alien artifacts from the Roswell crash. He tells us how he spearheaded the army's reverse-engineering project that led to today's integrated circuit chips, fiber optics, lasers, and super-tenacity fibers and "seeded" the Roswell alien technology to giants of American industry. Laying bare the US government's shocking role in the Roswell incident - what was found, the cover-up, and how they used alien artifacts to change the course of 20th-century history - The Day After Roswell is an extraordinary memoir that forces us to reconsider not only the past but also our role in the universe.

    "Absolute Must for those Seeking Truth"

    I've listened to a lot of books on this subject, and this one truly kept my interest from beginning to end. It's fascinating, honest, and reveals so many technologies we take for granted today. Little did we know where these breaks in technology came from...

    "What a great book!"

    What a great book to read and to listen to... It gave great details of what happened back then and how it came about... I read this book over and over again...just a great read. I would recommend buying or listening to it on audio books... It makes you think how technology advanced so quickly in a short amount of time compared to how long civilization has been around...Thank you for sharing and giving insight of what happened..

    Story
    "the narrator ruins the whole thing."

    the tone of the story narration is like it was some type of adventure story. it was very distracting. this is not at all the way the general would have told it.

    "There's more out there"

    Story
    "Amazing Story"

    I struggle with the idea that a US Army officer would invent a story like this one and sell it as fact. Yes, technology has taken some huge leaps in the last 70 years. But is all of that advancement due to a couple of recovered vehicles. It's just an amazing thing to imagine that our government did this to defend our world without our knowledge. I suppose though that it was for the best considering what today's society does with history. Be that as it may, this audio book provides hours of interest. I only wish I was there to help.

    "It all makes sense..."
    Any additional comments?

    When I was about 10 years old, my brother and I had a close encounter in broad daylight with a huge craft very up close and personal. Ever since then, I have known something was going on that our government, church, schools, institutions weren't telling us about. Everything about this book feels, smells and tastes genuine and more importantly makes sense to someone who has been watching everything having to do with this subject since the early 60's.

    Story
    "Oh my god.... it's sooooo long."

    I'm sure this is a true story. And it comes from a reliable source. The story of Roswell is fascinating and the writer details how alien technology led to some interesting developments in the US. He even does a good job at explaining (rationally) why the military needed to keep it quiet and deny it ever happened.
    But... it's just too long. If the editor had cut this 13 hour book to about 3 or 4, it would be an easy 5 Star. But it gets monotonous ,drags quite a bit, and loses the listener in excessive unnecessary details.

    Maybe an abridged version could save this story.
    As it is, the good part gets buried.
