    Excellent review of relevant sightings & conclusions drawn from them

    Having developed an interest in ufology as a child in the late 1950's, I was interested in seeing what the triangular UFO thing was all about. The subject piqued my interest in the late 1980's with the Belgian wave of sightings of this kind of UFO. Prior to that, reports of triangular craft were rather infrequent, and after that, such reports seem to have grown in number.

    The phenomenon of triangular UFO's is unique in that it breaks the mold of what has traditionally been reported regarding UFO's. Firstly, it is not the traditional "flying saucer" in that it is not a saucer at all. Secondly, triangular UFO's display a consistency that is not seen in the rest of ufology in that reports of traditional flying saucers encompass a wide variety of shapes, lighting characteristics, behavior, and the like.

    Mr. Marler does an excellent job of focusing on triangular UFO's and showing how reports of triangular UFO's exhibit a consistency that is lacking in reports of other types of UFO's. He lifts sightings of triangular UFO's out of the context of ufology in general to give the reader an idea of just how consistent these kinds of sightings are in their details. This is required due to the fact that much of the details of these sightings have been virtually buried in ufology as a whole due to the relative infrequency of reports of such UFO's. This allows us to see the commonalities that occur with these kinds of UFO's that span both space and time.

    My only complaint is that Mr. Marler either failed to include or failed to fully explain some significant sightings of triangular UFO's. He brushed over the Belgian wave of the late 1980's and early 1990's and justified that by saying so much has been written about it already. Brief reviews of the Tinley Park and Hudson valley sightings were included, and the Phoenix sightings of the mid-1990's were not mentioned at all. It would have been nice if Mr. Marler had incorporated these sightings into his thesis to make his case even stronger and to give the reader who is a UFO novice insight into these important sightings and how they relate to the specific phenomenon in general.

    Despite this problem, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in UFO's. It contained relevant and important information and a perspective that was much needed to me personally and to ufology in general.
