Publisher's Summary

The world's foremost academic expert on UFOs and alien abductions provides the first evidence-based explanation of a mystery that has perplexed scientists for decades.

Based on more than 700 hypnotic-regression interviews with alien abductees and a Roper survey of 6,000 adults, The Threat reveals why the aliens are here and what they want, explains why their agenda has been kept secret, and exposes their frightening plans for earth and its inhabitants. In a direct, authoritative challenge to researchers who believe the abduction phenomenon is essentially benevolent and spiritually uplifting, Professor David M. Jacobs proves that there is a far more disturbing and potentially dangerous plan underway, with possible alien domination at its core.

In this remarkably well-researched and well-written book, Professor Jacob has added a new complexity and depth to our knowledge of the UFO and abduction phenomena. The secret alien agenda revealed here is ominous, but it must be confronted before it is too late.

Contains mature themes.

Excellent!

It's devoid of fantasy and emerges us into a hard pill to swallow. A must read for everyone that is researching this phenomenon. Ignore the tech and focus on their agenda.

Ive seen a ufo and believe in ET, but this book is PURE TRASH!!!

If you want to read something to make you believe in Aliens or strengthen your current beliefs, this BOOK IS NOT IT!!! It is totally ridiculous, the people mentioned sound like fruit loops, charlatans, and flat out liars. This book does more damage to the ufo community than it is meant to. Maybe it has something to do with the weak narrator or the poor word choices used by the author. Also it could be the way the people are made to sound like complete idiots while they tell their stories. Its like the aliens chose only mentally challenged people to abduct and left everyone with common sense asleep in their beds. I know all the people can not be 100% fools. So it has to be the author intentionally making these people sound so frigging ignorant. If i was one of the names in this book, i would sue the author for how he describes them and their stories!! Dont waste your $$$$ on this book.

Narrator is terrible

This guy reads so fast that it's stressful to listen to him. You can barely pay attention to what he's saying because apparently he wasn't being paid by the hour. He just blasts through the narrative and you can hardly follow it. I didn't get to enjoy the substance of the actual book at all.

Oh The Stupidity

This is a foray into woo-woo land. Aliens impregnating human women, hybrids engaging in lasting relationships with humans, alien interference in the lives of newborns, human children being conscripted to teach hybrid children how to play - it's all here, and then some.

CHANGE is coming. The aliens don't tell us what that entails, but it will be radical CHANGE and lots of it. Humankind won't like it, but it will be for the best.

If your interest is piqued by outrageously stupid conjecture, you've come to the right place. Read on.

Narration is fine.

Intriguing and Shocking

This book presents an entirely different view of our current times that is disturbingly accurate in its findings.

not what I expected

The narrator is painful to listen to and the whole story is mostly read backs of supposed therapy sessions.

Don’t believe everything you read ( listen to )

I found much of this book difficult to believe. The book comprises interviews of abductees, nearly all women. There stories are just lacking substance.
For instance; one women in regression states; “I went for a job interview ( she doesn’t mention how or why ). she says the room , and again provides no more details. “The questions asked of me were strange and didn’t make sense. After I got home I had the feeling I had been sexually violated”. No more explanation .

One chapter in the book goes into detail where women are forced to perform oral sex on the Hybrid Aliens.
Really?

The book simply lacks credibility...

Excellent work

Dr Jacobs has a very interesting point. I don’t know if I agree with all of his conclusions, but he provides sufficient evidence to understand how he got there.

That makes this a thought provoking piece.

Definitely a different examination.

I found this book captivating, diving deep into a subject that I thought I was very well read on but I guess there’s still soo much to learn. I like the sincerity the author brings into his decades of study in this subject and he’s not afraid to cretic other researchers who have fallen for so much of the BS that dilutes an discredits the seriousness of the subject. I have always respected David Jacob’s and is one of the best and unpretentious researchers with true academic credentials.
