Abstract

If there's one thing harder than writing a responsible book about Unidentified Flying Objects, it's writing a meaningful review of such a book without being drawn into the controversy. I have the uneasy feeling that Hynek has been more successful in his task than I shall be in mine. Hynek's book is more than just an attempt to justify scientific interest in UFO phenomena. It is, in fact, Hynek's version of what the Condon report (1) should have been, interlaced with stinging criticism of the study on which it reported.
