In 1972, American astronomer and ufologist J. Allen Hynek first coined the term “close encounter.” He also identified three types of close encounters with UFOs. Since then, several more types of encounters have been proposed. A close encounter of the fourth kind is an alien abduction. A closer encounter of the fifth kind is voluntary, bilateral contact with an alien species.
We are no longer just looking at strange flying objects in the skies; now we are beginning to interact with the actual pilots, crew, and passengers!
Do aliens exist? In 2013, one poll showed that nearly half of all Americans (48 percent) believe UFOs may be a sign of extraterrestrial visitation; another found that 10 percent of Americans claim to have actually witnessed an actual UFO; and yet another showed that 2.9 million Americans believe they had actually been abducted by aliens.
If aliens exist and are visiting us, we need to talk!
Who will speak to them on behalf of planet Earth? Who can translate their intentions–good or evil–toward the human race? How can we learn about their advanced technologies? Can aliens speak human languages?
These and even more fascinating questions are all addressed in How to Talk to an Alien.
"How to Talk to an Alien is a pick for any collection strong in UFO accounts and new age topics, and considers whether aliens exist and how their intentions towards mankind may be translated. It's an intriguing approach that neatly moves beyond the basic question of aliens on Earth and delves into communication processes and issues of intention, and comes from a securities litigation attorney who became a trained psychic detective and a remote viewer trained in military methods. Perhaps it's this background that lends an unusual flavor to How to Talk to an Alien, making it far more than a speculative work and lending to a discussion that thoughtfully delves into the mechanics of language and communication between disparate species. New age and linguistics readers alike will find it something different in the field of UFO studies."--Midwest Book Review
"How to Talk to an Alien is an intimate book that implies a camaraderie of ufologists who are as passionate about their field as any lab researcher. Even for nonbelievers, the author's palpable excitement over the subject matter is endearing and entertaining. Ufologists won't want to miss this work. Anyone interested in aliens or alien contact will find it an interesting read worthy of discussion with fellow enthusiasts."--Foreword Magazine
"In her book, Nancy du Tertre covers the various considerations involved with extraterrestrial communication, including the use of alien technology, ET linguistics, and the possibility of using telepathy and dreams. Her handbook for the future should be on every thinking person's bookshelf."--Jim Marrs, New York Times best-selling author of Our Occulted History and Alien Agenda
"A fantastic read! Nancy du Tertre's new book How to Talk to an Alien takes ufology to a whole new level. She makes the strong case that if aliens can shut down our nuclear missile defense systems and abduct human beings, we'd better learn how to communicate with them--and fast!"--George Noory, radio show host of Coast to Coast AM
