Just like all of Keyhoe's books, this is an excellent historical review of the UFO subject.

A Lot of Information
This book was written in the 70's yet is still in my opinion a pretty good read. Donald Keyhoe's style can be a bit Sgt. Joe Friday, but with a little more zip. He has loads of reports from reputable witnesses such as military pilots, police, radar operators, etc. At times he is a pretty good story teller... that is for what he is working with - a dead pan UFO report. Major Keyhoe had connections with the first CIA director, many congressmen, and many military people. He managed Charles Lindbergh's tour after Lindbergh's famous flight over the Atlantic and wrote the book, Flying With Lindbergh. In other words, Keyhoe was a famous author. He was no kook. This is a serious book in spite of its "sensational" title. This book is a "must read" as far as the background over the arguments and struggles of whether the Air Force & CIA (the government) should make UFO knowledge public - admitting they are real - or deny their existence and debunk, ridicule, and make fools of any who come forward to vouch for their reality. As you will see in the book many in the government were wanting disclosure. If you are a skeptic on this subject, Major Keyhoe makes it very hard to not believe something is going on aside from pilots chasing Venus.
