Overview

In Secret Life, Professor David M. Jacobs of Temple University takes us into the private world of those abducted by aliens, letting them describe in their own words what it is like to be abducted. Based on interviews with sixty individuals and more than 300 independently corroborated accounts, Secret Life presents the most complete and accurate picture of alien abductions ever compiled. Dr. Jacobs takes the reader on a minute-by-minute journey through a typical abduction experience and describes in detail the bizarre physical, mental and reproductive procedures that abductees claim have been administered by small alien beings. Jacobs draws from these interviews a profoundly unsettling reason behind the abductions: aliens are conducting a complex reproductive experiment involving the conception, gestation. or incubation of human and alien hybrid beings.

Based on interviews with 60 individuals and over 300 independently corroborated accounts, Jacobs presents the most complete and accurate portrait of alien abductions ever compiled. Jacobs has discovered a consistent pattern of behavior, one that he believes points to a profoundly unsettling reason behind the abductions.

Read an Excerpt


I discovered that, in general, it made little difference where the abductions occurred. The people I interviewed described being abducted from every region of the country (and around the world as well), from cities and rural areas, highways and isolated roads, single homes and apartment complexes. Although in the main they did not know each other, they all told the same stories; They were abducted by strange looking Beings, subjected to a variety of physical and mental "procedures", and then put back where they had been taken. They were powerless to control the event, and, when it was over, they promptly forgot nearly all of it. Most were left with the feeling that something had happened to them, but they were not sure exactly what it was. I also found that some of the abductees remembered events without the aid of hypnosis; their stories were the same as those whose memories were recovered with hypnosis.

    Amazing!!!!!!!

    I can definitely say that this is one of the best books I have ever read! I could'nt put it down! The abductions in the book are shocking, horrifying, and intense. This book goes into great detail on the typical abduction experience. If you are an alien enthusiast, abductee, or a curious reader on the subject, this book is for you! This is well worth the money. I highly recommend this book!
