My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The truth can’t be hidden forever.
Few have ventured into the many heavily guarded, top-secret locations scattered across the earth. Even fewer have emerged with stories to tell. Yet every now and then the common man is given an illicit glimpse of something extraordinary...
In Beyond Area 51, Mack Maloney explores the truths behind the many myths and legends surrounding some of the world’s most mysterious locales. From the Homestead Air Force base in Miami, Florida to Russia’s Kapustin Yar, Maloney investigates incredible reports of extraterrestrial experimentation on animals, UFOs with road rage, and other unbelievable tales beyond our wildest imaginings. Filled with fascinating, true accounts, Beyond Area 51 will convince any skeptic of the infinite possibilities of what exists on, and beyond, our tiny planet.

This book was actually better than I thought it would be and is very well written. Not really about Area 51 at all, but it's essentially a brief rundown on a number of 'secret' bases and facilities around the globe that are alleged to be connected with the UFO phenomenon (see image above) and other strange events. Maloney presents the information in a relatively neutral way and tends to call a spade a spade, ie. when something sounds bogus or outrageous then he says so, which I liked. A good book for those new to the UFO and conspiracy topic, it's all quite general and impartial in nature with a closer look at a few cases. It introduces the reader to the bigger idea that there's quite possibly more going on around us than meets the eye. I recommend it.
