Editorial Reviews

Colin Bennett
There are very few books about UFOs that put the phenomenon in a setting of the character and atmosphere of a workaday journalistic world…[Huyghe] manages to combine a vigorous analytic logic with a brave ability to face the utterly absurd elements in many of the experiences he describes…Here is great insight, as well as the irresistible thrill of UFOlogy…
John Rimmer
Having removed himself from the 'gutter-roots' of UFO group controversy, Huyghe is able to combine an outsider's objectivity - being in thrall to no group or partisan publication - with an insider's knowledge of the complexities of the subject and of the politics and personalities involved...each of the pieces in this book is a model of literate UFO journalism...An essential book for anyone who wants a rational guide through the UFO jungle
William Corliss
The UFO Beat, as Huyghe calls it, is a drama of many scenes based upon a puzzling complex of physical, physiological, and psychological phenomena...The personalities involved are fascinating; and Huyghe has confronted many of them in his many articles...His interviews and oversight give him an unrivaled vantage point from which to sketch out one of the most fascinating social phenomena of our time...It's an insider's view well told.

    Take a Trip on A Saucer with Huyghe!!

    This is the most level-headed, down-to-earth, funny, scientific look at the day-to-day investigations of ufology that I have ever read. Patrick Huyghe's book skips along from place to place with a light-heartedness that has been missing in the study of this subject for years. Not a tongue-in-cheek investigator at all, this serious journalist talks to some of the most interesting people on earth (or perhaps not) - and takes us along for the ride. It is one of those 'pulse of' treatments that examines its subject, ufology, so closely from the inside out, it makes your flesh crawl. The book is sometimes so real that you think you feel alien abductee Janet Kimble's goosebumps on your arms or UFO government insider Sgt Dan Sherman's sweat on your hands. It is good, it is creepy, and it is revealing. Highly recommended.
