When I read the review titled, 'Most Significant Book Written in the 21st Century; by Carol Donahue from Amherst, NY, I really had to laugh.
Like Whit-lie a.k.a. the horror novelist, Strieber, Hopkins really has to reach and stretch to reach the conclusions he reaches. But at least he isn't smoking weed and dreaming up stories like Whit-lie. I like Budd, enjoy his books, and even give him a modicum of respect.
But seriously, if you want to know what's really going on, want to find some filament of truth in all the USO/Alien books, then you have to read something credible like "Unconventional Flying Objects, by Dr. Paul Hill. A NASA scientist who investigated UFOs for 30 years, all under the cloak of National Security, all the while NASA stated over and over, 'we don't investigate UFOs'. He couldn't publish his decades of notes, they were all classified Top Secret. But his brilliant, heroine daughter, sent them to a publisher after his death, and WOW, they came out in 'Unconventional Flying Objects.' The definitive book on UFO characteristics, science, and technology. The Bible!
Or take Colonel Philip Corso's 'The Day After Roswell.' A man who served on presidential staffs, a man who swore under oath that what he wrote was true, a man who met his demise prematurely and mysteriously. The highest ranking military officer to admit part in the UFO/Alien cover-up. His credentials are long and factual. His book, although shocking and almost unbelievable, is revealing and a key piece of the puzzle. Another must read. Have you heard of the 'Disclosure Project,' or the book 'Connecting the Dots?' Just feeding your curiosity..........
And while we're at it, what about Edgar Fouche and Brad Steiger's "Alien Rapture.

Speaking as an informed participant in UFO studies, I find this book highly remarkable in many respects. Most importantly of all, it confronts the hardcore data of UFO reports head-on in a rational discussion of what MAY be involved. The attempt is to bridge the gap between what Science Knows (or thinks it knows) and what credible people continue to report, though we may not like what we are hearing, and "Science" continues to turn a blind eye to the data. I have the highest regard for the authors, and heartily recommend this book to serious thinkers on the subject. It is not easy reading, and therefore all the more remarkable that a major publisher would have the good sense (or chutzpah) to publish it. The book raises issues that are of paramount importance, and it deserves to be read carefully and thoughtfully.

I've read my share of UFO/abductee books, and as they go, this one is middle of the pack. There's some interesting stories about seemingly human looking aliens living among us, but overall, I didn't find my mind stretched all that much. And the chapters that attempt to explain all this within human science are a "nice try" at best. Considering we may be hundreds of years behind the aliens, it's like 13th century scholars trying to explain the workings of an atom bomb -- they simply don't have the framework for understanding what's happening.
Here and there the book touches on this -- that maybe aliens are actually from other dimensions, that maybe time doesn't exist in the way we think it does -- which means most of the book's Earthly explanations for abductions are going to be wrong.
Another thing that bugged me was that every abduction case in this book is exclusively devoted to alien hybrids and medical examinations. Yet from the multitude of other abductee books I've read, it seems clear there's a LOT more going on than just that. So why does Hopkins choose to only focus on the medical ones?

Mr Hopkins's writing skill and sincerity of presentation can't
elude a few basic questions: why, with the power of invisibility,
with the wherewithal to traverse interstellar space, with the ability to dabble with our memories (but not with complete success, apparently), should the
aliens bother with us at all? Can't they solve their little problems locally? Further, where do they go when they aren't here? Do they swish through an abduction, return to their home
planet x light years away, then return here for another go? What
happened to the many reports of encounters with non-Gray beings? Are they excluded because the entities don't
measure up appearance-wise, don't conform to Gray Theory? Still,
an interesting read.

I really have to take this man's words with a grain of salt as I personally believe that his hypnotism and regression techniques are somewhat dangerous and certainly suggestive. I believe that only medical doctors should be allowed to carry out these very psychologically stressful procedures and here he conjures up all sorts of totally bizzare stories. Not that I believe that UFOs or Aliens are imaginary things, in fact I believe there is good evidense for them, but Hopkins "may" be influencing these people and that is certainly the most logical and scientific explaination for what is going on. This could all very well be the result of that yellow brick road to fantasy.
Have a bag of salt beside you when reading this one.
