Présentation de l'éditeur

Area 51, Hangar 18, the Montauk facility, the Dulce Base, the undersea world of Sanya, HAARP in Alaska, Pine Gap, Fort Detrick, Rudloe Manor, and the Zhitkur underground realm. These are just a few of the select, highly classified installations about which the governments of the United States, Australia, China, Russia, the United Kingdom, and others prefer that we, the general public, remain steadfastly ignorant. And those same governments have excellent reasons for wishing us to remain in the dark. It is at these secret facilities that for decades clandestine research has reportedly been undertaken into crashed UFOs, deceased alien entities, bizarre creatures and unknown animals, lethal viruses, biological warfare, mind-control experimentation, and much, much more. Whether situated deep under the oceans, far below the ground, or within the heart of remote, fortified desert locales, these and many other super-secret places are guarded with a near-paranoid zeal by those in power who wish to keep their secrets buried and locked far away from prying eyes. And they have succeeded.Until now.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought-provoking 22 décembre 2011
Par M. L Lamendola - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Redfern always does a good job of separating fact from fiction, of asking rather than concluding, and stimulating the mind of the reader. Unlike most other "alternative explanation" writers, he doesn't specialize in a given area. So when you pick up one of his books, you don't know what you're going to read. But you do know it's going to be good.

One problem with "alternative explanation" writers is they usually are trying to persuade the reader of an alternative explanation based on scant evidence and thin logic. That's not Redfern's style. One of the hallmarks of a good writer other than an op-ed writer is you can't tell what the writer's opinion is. The writer's viewpoint isn't apparent in the text, and the reader reaches his/her own conclusions.

That is not to say Redfern never draws conclusions. If certain facts don't fit, he'll point this out. If a conclusion suggested by someone else (whether an official explanation or a conspiracy theory) doesn't fly, he'll explain why.

Redfern also digs up facts surrounding a particular issue, and he digs up a lot of facts. His bibliographies tend to be disproportionate to the body of the text, and this book is yet another example of that bibliography on steroids thing he does. For this size book, on these topics, I think a bibliography of 6 to 8 pages would be reasonable. The actual size? 23 pages. Some of these are dubious (e.g., New York Times), and others are more authoritative (e.g., [...]

The premise of this book is exactly what the title and subtitle suggest. The top secret places include Area 51, Hangar 18, HAARP, and Fort Detrick. Not making it on the list is the Men's Room on the top floor of the Treasury Department, but I guess we can let that one slide.

But it's not just USA installations he covers. There are crazy places in Australia, China, Russia, and the UK. He covers them all. He looks at places deep underground, places deep under the ocean, and places in between. He explores questions such as "Why is Pine Gap the only place in Australia you can't fly over?" And what, exactly, is on the dark side of the moon?

In the course of looking at these places, he raises questions and theories about extraterrestrial aliens, subterranean humanoids, and biological weapons. In doing this, he doesn't advocate crackpot theories. He presents the evidence or, if it doesn't stand up, points to false evidence upon which opinions have been built. And he gives alternative explanations the same treatment, in many cases explaining why a given theory just does not work. He may discuss multiple theories about a given oddity, or just go with one; that really depends on the oddity and how many theories are floated around about it.

The reader is left to speculate, which is fine with me. If he claimed to "know the real story" in each case, that would be a red flag to me. Instead of taking that approach, he takes an investigative, "Let's explore this and ask relevant questions" approach. He chooses to instill curiosity, rather than try to indoctrinate. And that makes a big difference in how enjoyable this book is.

A quote from Redfern sums up his philosophy: "Clearly, there is a degree of division between what we know as undeniable fact, what we think we know, and what many still consider the stuff of rumor, theory, hearsay, and unproved, outrageous conspiracy mongering."

People who normally chit chat about the weather or some other same-o same-o topic might do well to pick a chapter in this book and make that the basis for the next conversation. For example, what has been in Wright-Patterson Air Force base for the last half century or so, and why is it still classified as Top Secret? Not that you'll figure it out, but what are the possibilities?

This book consists of 235 interesting pages covering 15 topics in as many chapters, plus a 16th chapter "Conclusions."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Redfern's KEEP OUT! May Only Entice More Readers to Want In 29 décembre 2011
Par E. Lee Zimmerman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
You can always count of Nick Redfern for some quality conspiracy literature. He's a recognized expert in areas of UFOs, Bigfoot, conspiracies, and other unsolved mysteries. His books have run the gamut from alien abduction to exposes on the infamous `Men in Black' to the search for elusive creatures hidden in various environments around the world. In his latest book, KEEP OUT! TOP SECRET PLACES GOVERNMENTS DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT, he serves up a virtual smorgasbord of `whose-its' and `what's-its' that makes the world of the paranormal so compelling for its readers.

Several of the locations explored here have been covered to greater explanation elsewhere - such as Nevada's ultimate secret base, Area 51 - and one could make the strong argument that many of them are ripe enough for an entire book instead of serving only as fodder for an individual chapter in KEEP OUT! But that's the nature of the book - provide the reader with a functional overview of significant details and then push on to the next mystery. These are summaries - as the book's subtitle clearly indicates - so don't look for exhaustive detail. However, if you want a concise snapshot of the public history for Area 51 or Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or even Royal Air Force Base at Bentwaters-Woodbridge, then you can find them covered here. Also, Redfern provides terrific context for the reader to capture the gist of the central mystery surrounding each of the secured locations, and that alone is the greatest service he offers with this release: here are the fine points, but, if you want to know more, you may need to go elsewhere. For those inclined, he provides ample citations in the bibliography.

What Redfern has done is created a `soft' reference book - a compendium of inter-related essays, really - that isn't so much, per se, about geographic places that world governments necessarily prohibit their citizens from visiting (indeed, one can get to the outskirts of many cited military installations but not inside the perimeter without prerequisite authorization) so much as it is demonstrably proof that there are significant places about the Earth - Area 51, England's possibly subterranean bases, underground bunkers, Hangar 18 - that governments openly and amply deny any association with. Some of the chapters, in fact, don't necessarily deal directly with any specific location so much as they highlight individuals associated to global or national conspiracies (i.e. the post-9/11 anthrax scare, Nazi mysteries of World War II, efforts to colonize the Moon, etc.); this is not to say that there aren't certain "places" exposed in those chapters but rather to clarify that these specific locations aren't necessarily the prime focus of those portions of the book. You say "tom-A-to", I say "tom-AH-to."

It's a brisk read told by a mind learned to the subject matter. Arguably, you won't find many minds better suited to the task at hand as laid out in the book's introduction. I've read several books on most matters explored here, and, while I would've hoped for something a bit meatier, KEEP OUT! still serves as an excellent primer for the subject matter as well as a healthy appetizer for my own search now that Redfern's pointed me in some new directions ... I had heard about the mysterious deaths of world-renowned microbiologists, so now I'm off to research the topic a bit more. It's good to know that Nick is already on the job!

Highly recommended.

In the interest of fairness, I'm happy to disclose that the kind folks at New Page Books provided me with a press copy for the purposes of completing this review.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Keep Out!: Top Secret Places Governments Don't Want You to Know About Paperback 7 août 2013
Par Eric Nordin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is not what I expected. The tone is inconsistent, partly factual and sometimes downplaying mythical and fantastic stories while other times sensationalizing them and seemingly suggesting they're possibly (or even likely) true. If you listen to Art Bell and believe everything his guests have to say you'll probably love this book. If you are more of a fact-based thinker it will probably be a disappointment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a great book! 5 mars 2012
Par Brad Steiger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When a government agency tells an investigative reporter like Nick Redfern to "keep out," you can bet that order only makes him dig all the more to find out why people are supposed to stay away from those secret locations. How many high security facilities exist above ground, underground, and beneath the sea? Everyone knows that Area 51 exists--but what is really going on in that highly guarded base? Reverse engineering of alien spacecraft? And what about Dulce? Did our special ops fight aliens toe-to-toe to the death? Is there really a Hanger 18 with alien bodies from Roswell and other top-secret crashes? And Montauk! We've all heard totally wild tales about what went on there. Is there even a base on Montauk? Or are all those stories about missing children and Bigfoot like monsters just so much baloney? This is a fascinating book and only someone like Nick Redfern would have the persistence to track down the wacky tales and separate as much truth as possible from all the fiction and the spooky claims. Brad Steiger, coauthor of Real Aliens, Space Beings, and Creatures from Other Worlds.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Alot to think about!!! 2 février 2013
Par Jimanb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I know that some of us are nieve to think that goverments around the world are not willing to discuss what is really going on at these sites that are right there for all to see. If you think for a moment that this can not be possible, think again. Nick Redlem has only brought to the public the sites and sounds of people who have experienced unusual occurrences to light. I have always felt that there are such facilities that are doing unimaginable things. It's a sobering thought to know that someone else is questioning what's going on. "We are not alone" is an understatement. In this galaxy and beyond, there has to be other lfe forms out there. I do not believe that we are the only ones. They may be visiting us now or maybe in the past. We may never know for sure but this I am sure of, "Big Brother" is watching everything.
