Overview

2009 IPPY Bronze Award Winner (Science)
Finalist 2009 Next Generation Indie Book Awards (Social Change)

"The Thinking Person's UFO Book" seeks to understand the pervasive denial surrounding unidentified flying objects. The team of Gordon
Chism and Richard M. Dolan melds philosophical theory and historical scholarship to present an easy-to-read, entertaining, and informative work.

Chism shares his personal UFO sighting and his struggle with peer group dismissal. His experience caused him to wonder why people so often reject new ideas and new perspectives of reality. The book weaves his conclusions together with researched accounts of worldwide sightings and the government and military response. A key source for this history was Dolan's 2002 volume, "UFOs and the National Security
State."

The authors recognize that our human centric view of the cosmos is not serving our planet well. A society based on falsehoods is not the way to move ahead. Acknowledging the truth of UFOs would be a step in the right direction. As Gordon Chism suggests, doing so might just bring us to a new "Age of Reason."
