Dear List,

I have just finished reading Whitley Strieber's newest book,
"Confirmation", and wanted to just share some of my thoughts on

My own reactions to Strieber over the years has fluctuated a
lot, but with this book I have gained a greater respect for him.
I can really relate better to the human being here as he talks
about the persecution and misunderstandings he has endured
because of his efforts to understand the contact experience. He
even talks about going back and reading his earlier works and
actually seeing that what he meant to convey did not come out as
planned, and led to a lot of the impressions that he was almost
acting as a mouthpiece for the visitors.

In this book he comes across as much more "down to earth" and
understandable, and his own ideas and self doubts are explained
in a much more coherent way, at least to me. This book offers
some really good ideas and plans for what needs to be done in
the way of gathering hard evidence and then finding out what it
means, and is full of some really interesting technical and
historical info. He is still personally open minded to more than
one simple answer to the situation, and presents some thoughts
and possibilities that certainly had never occurred to me and
seem to be very worthwhile food for thought. He seems much more
prepared to look at the possibilities that are very negative,
which I never got the impression he was really ready to do

I highly recommend this book to all, and hope that his Communion
Foundation is successful in it's goals.
