Listing does not preclude future review.

BAD UFOS: Critical Thinking about UFO Claims. Robert Sheaffer. Sheaffer says this is the first skeptical book examining the broad UFO phenomenon published in the United States since his previous book UFO Sightings (Prometheus Books, 1998)—although we note that his recent Psychic Vibrations compilation (2011) has a lot about UFOs in it. His intent is to bring readers up to date concerning the most important claims in UFOlogy since his 1998 book. It contains mostly new cases, as well as updates on important older ones. Sheaffer has inherited the mantle of Philip J. Klass as the most prolific and knowledgeable UFO skeptic, certainly in the United States, and this is a welcome and valuable contribution to the skeptical literature. Order through www.BadUFOs.com. 2016, 279 pp., $18.95 (Kindle version through Amazon. com $8.95.)
