UFOs 'On the Record'

UFOs 'On the Record': Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Talk About What They Know (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post: The subject of UFOs -- of intense interest to the general public -- is no longer something that reputable journalists will feel they need to avoid or dismiss... Popular culture has distorted the facts about this compelling mystery, and a new book sets the record straight. UFOs, Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record by journalist Leslie Kean pulls back the curtain on the incredible occurrences of unexplained behaviour by unknown objects over many decades.

UFOs includes a foreword by John Podesta and riveting, first-person accounts written by military and aviation witnesses and official investigators from around the world. Contributors include a former governor of Arizona, the former head of the FAA's Accidents and Investigations Division, military generals from five countries, a retired senior research scientist from NASA, Air Force and commercial pilots, and government officials from agencies investigating UFOs in their respective countries.

'I was astonished by the care and precision of Leslie Kean's research in this terrific book. Her analysis is carefully reasoned and to the point... Her expose raises important questions: why does the US government create public distrust by neglecting this important topic? Why do its agencies avoid investigating cases of interference with flight operations and instead issue absurd cover-up stories? This book is ultimately an appeal to all scholars for an 'extraordinary investigation of an extraordinary phenomenon.' -- Rudy Schild, Ph.D., Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
