Publisher's Summary

A new edition of the blockbuster book that revealed the top secret findings of the US government about UFOs

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, while publicly dismissing the existence of UFOs, the United States Air Force (USAF) was engaged in a secret program for evaluating every report of unidentified flying objects. Under the code name Project Blue Book, the Air Force analyzed over 13,000 incidents. The goal of this enterprise was threefold: to determine the cause for each UFO sighting, to assess the security threat for each incident, and to determine how the United States could obtain or create the technology used by UFOs.

Based on secret files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, this book includes accounts of seven of the most important USAF inquiries - among them the story of the nights the White House was buzzed by UFOs, the mystery of the Lubbock Lights, the full story of Captain Mantell, Ufology's first martyr, and the startling conversion of the prominent astronomer J. Allen Hynek from UFO skeptic to believer.

This startling and fascinating book uncovers not only the anatomy of a government cover-up but also provides stark and chilling evidence that we are not alone. It is all here, government documents and the testimony of scientists, the military, pilots, and citizens all over the country who have witnessed UFOS.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good book but..

Lately I’ve been listening to a bunch of these early UFO books and this book is really quite close to one I just listened to in terms of content, I want to say one of Keyhoe’s maybe. Pretty much all the same stories.

That’s not the book’s fault thought and it’s still great. If anyone is newer to this topic you can’t go wrong here. The narrator is good as well.

Not as good as I expected

It was more of a collection of dates and events then a story. Definitely not what I expected to be

Boring like reading the phone book

This is not the TV series as such it’s just a dry read of US government files and such. Might be of use to an academic or rabid conspiracy person but NO one else. Blatant use of Tv series cover. ♿️🇲🇸
