From Kirkus Reviews

Next time you glance at your watch and find a few minutes missing, better rush to your local hypnotist--you, too, might have been unwittingly kidnapped by a UFO. So Jacobs seems to suggest, estimating that over a million Americans have been abducted in recent years. ``We have been invaded,'' he proclaims, warning that ``the aliens have powers and technology greatly in advance of ours.'' Odd words, coming from a professor of history at Temple Univ., and a sign of the extreme oddity of the phenomenon, which Jacobs explores through extensive structural analysis. Each stage of a typical abduction, including the most sensational--the sexual encounters and reproductive experiments found in nearly all cases--are scrutinized through firsthand transcripts of hypnotic-regression interviews with more than 60 victims. The conclusion? That aliens are impregnating earth women in order to create quasi-human ``hybrids'' for some unknown purpose. The mind reels, but the sober, obviously terrified abductees make a strong case for the veracity of their experience. Jacobs's own presentation is a mixed blessing: His scholarship is punctilious, but he reveals the zeal of the converted in his debunking, after slight analysis, of all earth-bound explanations for UFO abductions (hysterical contagion, psychogenic fugue states, temporal-lobe dysfunction, and the like). By bringing solid scholarship to the pioneering efforts of Bud Hopkins and the hot prose of Whitley Strieber, this marks the next stage in UFO abduction research--and is just as likely to fly off the supermarket bookracks. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Kurzbeschreibung

In Secret Life, Professor David M. Jacobs of Temple University takes us into the private world of those abducted by aliens, letting them describe in their own words what it is like to be abducted. Based on interviews with sixty individuals and more than 300 independently corroborated accounts, Secret Life presents the most complete and accurate picture of alien abductions ever compiled. Dr. Jacobs takes the reader on a minute-by-minute journey through a typical abduction experience and describes in detail the bizarre physical, mental and reproductive procedures that abductees claim have been administered by small alien beings. Jacobs draws from these interviews a profoundly unsettling reason behind the abductions: aliens are conducting a complex reproductive experiment involving the conception, gestation. or incubation of human and alien hybrid beings.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.
I managed to read it in four days, and I couldn't put it down.
Jacobs is unbiased and balanced in his summary of what is happening, and his presentation of an abduction scenario is beatifully done.
Secret Life is in a sense better than Jacobs latest book, The Threat. Every American should read this book, and then make their own conclusions on what is happening. Secret Life gives an excellent overview of the abduction phenomena.

I loved this book! It's good to see someone approach the subject of abductions analytically. After having read so many overly emotional, or new-age type books on the subject, it's nice to read something that just says, "Hey, this is what I've found again and again, in numerous investigations. This is how it seems to happen. AND this is what we may be able to expect next, based on what we've seen so far." He also wrote The Threat-

There is no other book which so properly recounts reliable eyewitness testimony of this nature. Even Hopkins' "Intruders" doesn't quite reach this level. Mack's "Abduction" has too many new-age laced accounts. The conclusions and theories of Strieber's "Communion" *are* new-ageism, which he appears to now regret. This is the one to get if you wish to hear accounts of level-headed abductees who, I can guarantee, aren't going to turn around and say they made it all up, as happened in the case of Mack's.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An interesting book on an usual and controversial topic of alien abductions. If you are into UFOs this book is for you. 7. Mai 2015
Von Joseph J. Truncale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Even though I am a scientific minded person who always looks to the proven validity of using the “scientific method” I admit to also being fascinated with the UFO abduction reports. This 336 page paperback (Secret Life: First hand documented accounts of UFO abductions by David Jacobs, Ph.D.) provides an interesting account of sixty individuals who all claim to have been abducted by creatures from outer space. This book also has more than 300 independently corroborated accounts.

This easy to read volume is organized into four parts. Part one gives a background on the beginning of the author’s research into the UFO abduction phenomena. The second part, which is the longest, covers the abduction experience. Topics in this section go into detail on the interviews with those people who claim to have been abducted sometime in their lives. This part also explores the various physical probing and other things these aliens did to these people. The third part deals with how those who were abducted live with this secret. The final part searches for meaning in the adduction experiences. There is also an afterword and three appendix sections in this book.

Even though I have read numerous books on this topic in the past, I did find many of the stories in this book fascinating. In the past, I took numerous hypnosis courses and even became certified on this topic; nevertheless, I was not convinced then and I am still not convinced that aliens are kidnapping thousands of people and performing experiments on them.

If you are interested in this topic this book is for you. I found it to be a good read and much food for thought when it comes to alien abduction stories.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Where there's smoke there's fire 10. Mai 2009
Von mhs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Thousands of people (alone and in groups) including military personal, scientists, pilots, police and others have seen things that they insist could not of been man made. They can't all be wrong, lying or insane. To fill out an official report is a risk, yet they fill out factual reports stating "I saw this, I don't know what it was, and it did this and this". They don't give some new age 'spiritual' interpretation of the event. They just report the facts. This is what Jacobs has done. He has written what the abductees said they saw. If there was a conversation between the abductee and the aliens he gives that also. It is a thought provoking book. At the end he discusses the explanations doubters use to try to explain away these accounts and he makes some very good points as to why these explanations are wrong. If you know something is going on and want to learn more- read this book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Best writer about alien abductions 27. Juni 2015
Von Paul - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Dr. David M. Jacobs is probably the best writer about alien abductions there is. Oddly enough this is partially due to the fact that he does believe in a spiritual world. So he can study this subject without the bias of many Christian writers. I happen to be a Christian but I do not explain away anything I cannot understand by calling it spiritual. Another good book by Jacobs is the "Threat."

While outdated and very limited in scope it was still ok. Not the best in the genre but ok. Easy to read.
