Overview

The Threat: Revealing the Secret Alien Agenda by David M. Jacobs

The world's foremost academic expert on UFOs and alien abductions provides the first evidence-based explanation of a mystery that has perplexed scientists for decades.
Based on more than 700 hypnotic-regression interviews with alien abductees and a Roper survey of 6,000 adults, The Threat reveals why the aliens are here and what they want, explains why their agenda has been kept secret, and exposes their frightening plans for earth and its inhabitants. In a direct, authoritative challenge to researchers who believe the abduction phenomenon is essentially benevolent and spiritually uplifting, Professor David M. Jacobs proves that there is a far more disturbing and potentially dangerous plan underway, with possible alien domination at its core.
In this remarkably well-researched and well-written book, Professor Jacob has added a new complexity and depth to our knowledge of the UFO and abduction phenomena. The secret alien agenda revealed here is ominous, but it must be confronted before it is too late.

THE THREAT Is Coming . Or Is It? I have to admit that I'm a bit at a loss as to what to think of David M. Jacobs, Ph.D.'s academic foray into the field of alien abduction, but that's not necessarily any fault of Mr. Jacobs. If any point is made astounding clear in THE THREAT (subtitled THE SECRET AGENDA: WHAT THE ALIENS REALLY WANT . AND HOW THEY PLAN TO GET IT) is that Jacobs is definitely a pioneer; he's one of the first professionals of his kind to take a long, serious look into the phenomenon of alien abduction specifically - with UFO sightings reduced to more tangential evidence. His massive collection of data and the subsequent review and conclusions is impressive, if not representative of exhaustive work. Where I struggle to form my own opinion of the facts presented here is that, certainly in the later accounts of abductions, elements and narratives grow a bit harder to accept let alone believe. I've read more than my fair share of UFO and abduction books, but there are quite a few theories and analyses in THE THREAT that I've read about for the first time. The obvious sexual nature of some abductions - the taking of sperm or ova, the implantation of hybrid fetuses, etc. - have long been documented in both mainstream and fringe literature delving into the greater expanse of the phenomenon, but a gang of adult hybrids acting more like a motorcycle gang in a bad direct-to-cable movie? Menacing human-looking hybrids gang-raping abductees apparently for the sole purpose of instilling fear into our populace makes little sense especially given the reality that most abductees don't go public with their more frightening experiences, so how exactly are these hybrids truly "getting their message out"? This isn't to say that I don't believe the victims; rather, it's only to underscore that, in all of my reading on this controversial subject, I've never come across a single account of gang-raping aliens, so, as I said at the outset of the review, I don't know what to make of it. Still, that's a small portion of the book's entirety (the last third, or so), and the inclusion in no way, shape or form is meant to discount the breadth of the research that comes before. The strength of the research, along with Jacobs examination of national polling data that indicates how widespread the abduction phenomenon may actually be, is astounding. Also, Jacobs prepares some of the strongest arguments for the use of hypnosis - despite some lesser methods used by his colleagues - as an active tool for recovering memories both repressed or 'screened' by possible alien intervention. As I stated before, it's impressively clear that this academic and scientist has done his homework; he never entered into this controversial field lightly, and it's very easy to accept the bulk of his work and their conclusions as being founded on the best possible application of scientific reasoning. But what is it that the aliens really want, as is hinted at by the book's teasing subtitle? I won't be the one to give all of the secrets away, as I think there are many elements within Jacobs' great conclusions that don't need to be spoiled by any review. After all, what would be the reason for anyone to read the book if all of the questions could be answered in the review? In fairness to potential readers, however, I will divulge that there are many aspects of which Jacobs asserts - ideas such as colonization - that have been covered in convincing detail

This is generally a well written book. The perspective it brings to its topic is worth considering especially since it seems so sincere it its presentation... but... I have serious problems when I have to believe a conclusion entirely based on testimony from hypnosis. Testimony from pseudonyms at that. Sorry but fake names equal automatic points off belief in veracity to me. If you are interested in the topic then this is a good read. But it should be read with a critical eye too since so little physical evidence is included.

I really enjoyed this book, it was refreshing to see someone come at this subject without a naive sense that these 'aliens' even remotely care about us. I was so fed up with new agers who are desperate for a positive outcome to all this (Art Bell, Larry Sprinkle, etc.) that I went searching for new venue. Jacobs approaches the Alien abduction phenomenon intelligently. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether they believe or not.

A very compelling book that delves into a realm which most members of society do not want to even address. For anyone interested in this subject matter, I would recommend this book.

It was a very informative book to me. I learn human abduction facts that I did not know. It helps me to understand the real purpose of abductions. Very interesting book that I recommend to read.
