Publisher's Summary

There is a clear conspiracy to deny the existence of UFOs.
The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the US government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.
Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers examines the wealth of archival documents that clearly demonstrate this cooperative disinformation effort and refute the false claims made by these professional scoffers. Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden set the record straight by examining politically motivated misinformation and presenting compelling evidence that separates fact from fiction.

good Doco but terrible narration.

I genuinely enjoy the works of Stanton Friedman and this book is no exception however two things ruined this for me.

Narrator's voice is extremely annoying, his voice fades off at the end every single sentence. How the producer allowed this is beyond me, it's and absolute deal breaker.

The Authors in this book tend to fixate too much on their conflict with Dr Menzel. I honestly think he would love the fact that they have devoted so much time to him. That conflict is well documented in other works and don't feel it required so much attention.

all in all I mostly enjoyed this but it did iritate me.

The personalities and their motives in UFO history

One of the things I've struggled with when reading UFO information, or watching documentaries is the issue of mis- or dis-information. Which stuff is coming from sincere investigators and which stuff is coming from a source that is muddying the waters?

This book helps clear up the mis- or dis-information issue.

The book has a slow start, and I almost bailed on it, but about the 4th chapter it finally hit its stride. One reason, too, that I almost quit is the tone of the narration. But, if I focus on the positive . . . the narrator has a clear voice and is understandable . . . then I can just keep listening.

I have sampled various UFO books and documentaries, but not to the level of knowing a lot of the people / authors / speakers in the UFO field. From time to time I've seen Stanton T. Friedman on documentaries or youtube lectures - with quite a difference in his age spanning through years - and have always liked his "left-brained" approach and presentations. His telephone interview on Grimerica earlier this year was fun listening and shows that he has evolved and changed too.

Kathleen Marden is less familiar to me, and while I do recall listening to at least one great interview she did earlier this year, I look forward to hearing / reading more of her research.

This book can be a valuable tool for future researchers in sifting through the various historical data and the personalities associated with the data. It's good to have a better understanding of who wrote what and especially who they were (or might have been) affiliated with, what their motivations may have been, and what happened "behind the scenes" too.

Beware of the Narrator!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The narrator speaks with what sounds like a very fake, pretentious, and emasculated tone, as well as drags out words at the end of every sentence. It makes me feel sick to the stomach listening to him. I wonder if this is his natural way of speaking or why he felt necessary putting on such exaggerated airs. Though I love the subject matter of the book, I couldn't bear listening to him for even 5 minutes and won't listen to this book again.

What did you like best about this story?

the subject matter

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Sorensen?

Any other narrator I've heard on audible.

Could you see Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Anyone but Chris Sorensen.
