    A Great Read.

    UFO's usually generate a definitive response in a person with a "no way that's crazy" attitude on one side of the coin and a "yes I believe/yes, why not" attitude on the other. As you may have guessed I'm definitely a believer in UFOs even though I have never seen one myself. Part of the reason is that, in general terms, there's far more evidence for them than any of the gods worshiped by major, and not so major, religions around the world. There's photos, movies and eyewitness accounts from people of all stratas in life including a famous report filed by former American President Jimmy Carter. Military jets have chased and fired at them, commercial airline pilots have had near collisions with them, radars across the world have recorded them and yet some people still don't believe in UFOs. Whether you believe or not I would recommend 'Unsolved UFO Mysteries' as it's not to deep or complicated and sets out the facts of ten major UFO cases/subjects, each with its own chapter, with information on the investigations and what facts and evidence were uncovered. The narrative is strong and well formatted, and I would expect nothing less of veteran UFO researcher William J Birnes (better known as Bill Birnes from the History Channel show UFO Hunters) as he really knows the subject inside and out.
    Even though each chapter deals with a certain UFO case/subject, such as the infamous Phoenix Lights for instance, the ones chosen are varied enough not to become repetitive and I'm very thankful that the most famous UFO case of all, the UFO crash at Roswell in 1947, isn't included in this book as even ten years removed from being submerged in this culture I'm still all "Roswelled out"! What are included are a couple of cases that could very well be hoaxes...'The Screaming Alien' whose sole witness was featured on SyFy's 'Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files' in the first series where he failed a voice stress analysis test and was presumed to be lying about his encounter and also 'The Gulf Breeze Mystery' which, even to a seasoned UFO reader such as myself, seems very far fetched. However, both these cases make fascinating reading and will no doubt give you chills and the evidence for these cases are presented "as is" with no definitive side chosen (fact or fiction) by the authors.
    What we have then is a book about several different UFO cases written from the perspective of two obvious UFO believers but they do take into account any major counter arguments put forward by investigators who didn't reach the same conclusions as they did. It's a very eye opening read and I read all 290 pages in one sitting such was my fascination with the subject matter. The only negative aspect of the book is that the authors often speak of photos taken of the UFOs, evidence left behind, alien implants etc but no photos are included in the book. Had they included the photos, many of which are easily found online for the major cases investigated, I would have given this a slightly higher rating. As it is I still thoroughly enjoyed submerging myself back into the UFO realm for a few hours and I look forward to expanding into more deeper UFO reading in the near future. If you're already a reader of UFO literature then this book would serve more as a digest than anything substantial. For the rest of us, believers or not, it makes for some entertaining, and sometimes disturbing, reading.

    Entertaining look at UFOs

    Most people are fascinated by the possibility of ETs visiting our planet. UNSOLVED UFO MYSTERIES provides detailed accounts of some of the more documented cases of sightings from around the world. The authors provide various perspectives and responses including the eyewitnesses, the media, the 'official position', scientific analysis, and their own thoughts. William J. Birnes and Harold Burt augment the scenarios with why they remain unresolved and what really happened. <P>Whether one is an UFOlogists or not, the stories are intriguing and entertaining while providing a wide range of interpretation that leaves each of the 20 cases just incredible. Even those who are skeptical to the point of wondering why the greater than the speed of light ET does not visit a blood bank to clone our genes, will enjoy the well written analysis of some of the top UNSOLVED UFO MYSTERIES. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Sort of like two books... one pretty good and one...

    The first half of this book id pretty good. It explains the incidents and then gives all possible explanations both extraordinary and mundane. Then the second half of the book starts and there is no attempt to look at mundane explanations or even present well researched stories. This second half hurts the book in a massive way... Overall, not a bad read but don't take it to seriously.
