One of the most interesting nonfiction books I’ve recorded recently is Leslie Kean’s UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record.
Nut-job stuff, right? Not at all. Kean is a well-published investigative journalist who almost unwillingly got drawn into a fascination with this subject after a French colleague sent her a confidential French government report.
There’s nary a conspiracy theory or flying saucer in the whole book. Instead, it consists of testimonials by commercial airline pilots, four-star generals, fighter pilots, and government officials (like, a former White House chief of staff, a NASA senior research scientist, and the former Deputy Chief of the Belgian Air Force) about their encounters with UFOs.
My husband is skeptical about everything – and he’s part Norwegian, which means he’s stubbornly skeptical. But it’s even made him reconsider his opinions.
