Phenomena, Annie Jacobsen Hardcover.
The definitive history of the military's decades-long investigation into boundary-pushing mental phenomena, from the author of the New York Times bestseller Area 51.
For more than forty years, the U.S. government, through various military and intelligence agencies, has invested millions in classified programs that study the role of mental telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and other forms of extrasensory perception (ESP) as a means of intelligence collection for military and defense purposes.
Now, for the first time, New York Times
bestselling author Annie Jacobsen will tell the story of these programs, using interviews with the core group of individuals--including former Defense Department scientists, military officers, CIA analysts and researchers, an Apollo 14 astronaut, government psychics, and members of the Aviary--who ran these phenomena programs at the highest level of government.
PHENOMENA will be a quest narrative--a story about how far man will journey in search of improbable and mysterious things --with documentation showing which of these improbable things might actually exist.
