At the risk of ending up with 20 knives in my virtual back here, Corso Sr's book is full of, well, crap.
There are a huge number of technical inaccuracies, just on the surface of it.
Beyond that, some of his times/places are wrong, and other things he states I know to be inaccurate from "work". But just from an engineering
perspective, quite a number of his claims are bogus.
It might sound believable if you didn't work on this stuff. Not UFO stuff, but just physics and electronics in general. To the lay person, it
probably sounds really convincing, especially if you want to believe it to begin with.
As a sort of interesting non-sequitur, I was presented with a much more convincing version of the same tale during a job interview. Chopped down and
without the more obvious errors, not that I believed it then either. After having read Sr's book, I'm wondering if he used the same material as the
starting point for a fun read, with a lot of wild-assed extrapolation and putting himself in as the main character.
