In Plain Sight, An Investigation into UFO and Impossible Science” is a joy to read as it's truly fascinating. If you like mysteries, conspiracies, new technologies, espionage, UFOs, and cover-ups, you`ll love this book as it covers them all. "In Plain Sight", is the perfect name for the book as it describes the greatest mystery of all time. I hope there is a sequel. https://marcjohnstone.com/book/

This is a book about UFOs ahem... UAPs and it wants to be taken seriously. The author gives us the whole shebang of who is who and what is what in UFO, I mean UAP sightings. Veteran ufologists, or should is say now Uapologists, will find themselves on familiar ground. Eyewitness accounts are described vividly, and some of the sillier government reaction to UFO-sightings are read (this the audiobook review) in a deliciously sarcastic voice and timber. What is even more amusing to me but perhaps not so for most scientist is that the author has some good arguments against using Ockham Razor and the various versions of “extraordinary evidence needs extraordinary bla bla” as a UAP denial panacea. I love you Ockham, Asimov and Sagan; you were my childhood heroes - not you good ole’ Ockham, you are hardly popular with kids and teenagers - but you see I read this here book and well Ross Coulthard just expresses the obvious, namely that overgeneralizing makes silly static aphorisms from the simplest, most beautiful scientific phraseology. It just ain’t always that simple. Go ahead and give In Plain Sight a shot, I reckon even if, after all; you didn’t get much from it, you will at least have learned to call that unidentified flying awesomeness by its proper name - UAP. But hell I am just incorrigible, so let us just reinstate the good ole’ UFO moniker.… (mere)

For those that are already interested in this area, there's not a lot new here. But for those wanting a capsule look at recent ufology, this book will fit the ticket. The organization, To the Stars Academy (TTSA) gets a lot of play.

This book is an amazing, very interesting, moving, raw and sometimes haunting series of photographs taken by a French photographer Louis Thuillier and his wife Antoinette during WWI of Australian, British, Indian, French, Canadian and US soldiers as well as local townsfolk of Vignacourt. The glass negatives were found in an attic in 3 chests in Feb 2011, by a French journalist and furniture dealer Laurent Mirouze, the author and Peter Burness from the Australian War Memorial. I had seen a documentary on the find, also here is a link to a presentation on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8G6XL3tGkY Of all the military and war books I own - this is THE best one... by a long margin.… (mere)
