Here's what Nick writes about the book and how it was in the good old days of UFO chasing:
It’s clear from what Beckley has to say that the world of Ufology back then was very different to that of today. For a start, it still possessed a sense of humor and wasn’t full of pompous, self-important ufologists (or there were certainly less of them, at least!). And the subject was full of something else too: characters.
I like that. So many full of themselves twits out there today, and that's within UFOlogy; forget about the usual uber sketpics and debunkers.
I was fortunate enough to have Tim Beckley send me a treasure trove of books as well; and his books, as well as his newsletter, are worth reading, espeically for "UFO buffs."
