Top Secret is an evil book . . . Mr Good's ideas are those
of a maniac."
"Timothy Good's stimulating and brilliantly structured book is a masterful detective story worthy of Agatha Christie
or Franz Kafka . . . Good's book may, in fact, be regarded
by history as one of the most interesting books on any subject
to be written in the last 10 years."
"Good, a thorough and well-informed writer, has woven
a highly disturbing book which proves that the UFO cover-up
has been designed around a program of 'denial and ridicule'.

"It is painful to turn to the shrill yappings of Timothy
Good's Alien Liaison . . . Only mentally subnormal
people could believe in it."

"It would be easy to write Good off as a crank, were
it not for his painstaking documentary evidence, including
thousands of Pentagon and CIA documents."

"Beyond Top Secret has about 110 reports by pilots
all over the world. The author's objective, often cynical
approach has won respect from sources more likely to scoff
at anything remotely connected with the subject."
"He worries away at the evidence like a forensic scientist,
until, at the end, there's a small pile of incontrovertible
nuggets containing the impermeable conclusion that Earth is
increasingly visited by aliens . . . "
"Overall Beyond Top Secret is a fascinating and
well-documented book that makes a convincing case. The evidence
that Good has amassed is too overwhelming to ignore and it
is clear that a more open debate is long overdue."
The Sunday Times
"Alien Base is packed with new, startling and
hitherto unpublished reports, including retrievals of alien
craft and bodies, eye-witness accounts from military and civilian

- based on an impressive weight of testimony."
"You certainly make a good case . . . Alien Base
is very impressive."
Sir Arthur C. Clarke
"It's the most outlandish alien theory yet. Beings from
outer space establishing secret bases on Earth, and travelling
in ships that are just as much at home beneath the sea as
they are in the skies. Beyond belief? Perhaps. But Unearthly
Disclosure is written by one of the world's most respected
authorities on UFOs, and his findings are supported by one
of Britain's most senior military men."

have the highest regard for Good's absolute integrity, his
determination and skill as a researcher, and his wide and

NEED TO KNOW: UFOS, THE MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE
By Timothy Good
This is one book that you, the ardent researcher and public alike need to know about and read cover to cover. Timothy Good is a world-renowned researcher and author that has appeared on several television shows and written many books on the subject of UFOs and the military's secret agenda to debunk them. This has to be one of the best books on this subject. Included within are 431 pages of secret official documents and the complete cover-up of UfO sightings that our government and other governments have hidden for years. If you read no other UFO book this year this is the one you need to read. You will be fascinated by the inside look at the subject of flying saucers that the military and the insiders of the military/industrial complex have seen and hidden for all of these years. Included are the inner workings of the CIA, the Magic 12 papers and the Roswell incident that you will not hear about anywhere else. The secrets that the military/industrial complex has tried to suppress and the inner workings of all countries have shared are enclosed in this fact based and comprehensive book that the average citizen never hears about. Secrets that are revealed for the first time and have been brought to life for the first time any where are brought to life in a refreshing no hold barred literary compendium that is fit for the serious investigator or just the entertainment of a UfO buff. The astronauts saw them on earth in a secret air base. The UFO that landed on a runway that was visible to the leaders of the air base. The military sightings, the close calls of UfO/U S air force military planes and the other landings that have occurred for over a hundred years that our government knows about. Roswell was an enigmatic happening but who knows that before Roswell there was another craft that crashed and other entities were found!

NEED TO KNOW: UFOS, THE MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE
By Timothy Good
Timothy Good's book is an all encompassing look at a subject that is denied by the "elite" of the scientific world but as the book tells us that his research has brought him to speak before the Pentagons Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office and the headquarters of the French Air force! Now think about that! Something that officially does not exist but yet they ask him to talk about it to the head of our nations defense leaders! This book is not just a book to enjoy but also one that every UFO Investigator and researcher MUST read. If you only buy one book this year to read, NEED TO KNOW is the one! Included in this compendium of known facts are: In 1945 the US military recovered an alien spacecraft. A French pilot serving in the USAF fired at a UFO in the first incident of this kind in 1945. The US shot down several disks in the late 1940s; a period marked by an unprecedented wave of unexplained aircraft crashes. I have several of Timothy Goods' books and He, in my opinion, is up there with the best UFO investigators of all times. In Fact I would rate him with the top 5 writers of this century into the facts surrounding the most world altering mystery of this planets history: the world of UFOS and their enigmatic pilots and crew. So all of you UFO buffs do not ignore this most compelling and fact based book into the history of UFO sightings that our own government will not tell you. Open your minds and take in knowledge. It will amaze you, maybe frighten you, and maybe change your world as to the reality of our "visitors" and our place in the cosmic system. Your mind will be altered and your mind will be open to the mystery of the ages changed forever.
From Aeroplane Magazine - November 2007:
Need To Know by Timothy Good
Whether or not you believe in UFOs, this softback by one of the respected authorities on alien phenomena may make you think. Many of the sightings cannot be explained away, and the author claims that new documents and oral evidence from military and intelligence sources is hard to refute. Fascinating stuff.
NEED TO KNOW - READERS’ REVIEWS
“Timothy Good’s Need to Know is a tour de force – staggering in its research and its implications. It should be required reading for every college student on the planet . . .”
Payne Harrison, bestselling author of Black Cypher, Forbidden Summit and Storming Intrepid
“Just finished Need to Know and feel like the man who decoded the Rosetta Stone must have felt ...the first seventy-five or so books I read on this subject hadn’t quite done the trick, but Need to Know removed any lingering doubts I might have had up until then. You have found by far the best supporting anecdotes, the best corroborating witnesses, and the best scientific quotes. I wouldn’t even know where to begin in praising this book. Every single chapter is outstandingly phenomenal. Need to Know is the best UFO book ever written. The reason I say this is because it is precisely the military security leaks which are the most promising evidence of ET reality. Your inclusion of the security leaks from the JPL and CalTech [California Institute of Technology] are especially striking. I would defy any honest skeptic to read this book without becoming convinced that indeed, the ‘flying saucers’ are real. I will ask them to overlook the fact that you have laid down tracks for a Depeche Mode album ... “
Marc Meinzer, US Navy (Ret.), Cleveland, Ohio
“. . . an incredible catalogue of UFOs and alien activity through the years up to the present. Need to Know should have been waved about and talked about on every talk show and current affairs programme – but it did not happen. How close I wonder are we to the big breakthrough, the moment when the media takes the subject – and the proof – of alien life seriously?”
Howard Rodway, Sittingbourne, Kent
“I have just completed Need to Know and I can’t say enough good about it. It is a thorough and detailed look at the UFO issue and the active suppression of information being conducted by world governments, probably under the leadership of the U.S. Your thoughts at the end of the book regarding alliances and open conflicts with alien races are particularly revealing . . .”
“The most important and comprehensive book on the UFO question . . .” Patricia B. Grant BSc, West Malling, Kent
“. . . I simply could not put the book down.”
Michael Hathway, London
“If you read this book, you’ll understand why the mainstream media goes to lengths to ridicule and downplay these encounters . . .”
“. . . As a long-time researcher into the UFO puzzle and a former State Director in the Mutual UFO Network, an international organization, I have read many very good works on the subject . . . But in reading Need to Know, I was immensely impressed with the quality and integrity of the work. Mr Good does not offer his theories, conclusions or opinions. He lets his documented and recorded findings speak for themselves . . . Even the incidents on which very little data exists are presented in a time-line that meshes with known and adequately documented events: Mussolini’s interest in those early reports of strange aerial craft, intercepts of Von Braun’s V-2 rocket tests by UFOs and later, of other missile test launches . . . the Northeastern blackout of November 9, 1965, and a month later, the crash of the Kecksburg object in Pennsylvania, disappearances of Air Force planes and pilots, and the incapacitation of an entire missile complex in Montana, and other incidents, are just some of the examples . . . But it is in the last one hundred pages of the book that many of the diverse events coalesce and begin to form a picture that cannot be dismissed.”
Edward F. Mazur, Arkansas
“ . . . He details thoroughly many incidents where UFOs have been fired upon by the military, and other occasions where aircraft have been ‘shot’ down or ‘absorbed’ by extraterrestrial craft. Much of the book deals with the worldwide government cover-up of the situation and the compartmentalisation of knowledge which is only revealed on a ‘need to know’ basis . . . he makes a distinction between ‘private’ and ‘public’ technology, the advanced technological secrets that the military have gleaned from crashed UFOs [which] of course remain hidden within ‘black’ programmes. In the final chapter Good quotes Ben R. Rich, the ex-head of the Lockheed Martin ‘Skunk Works’, who said, ‘We now have the technology to take ET home’!”
The Boogie Man, Coventry
“Tim Good has done a very thorough and professional job in researching and summarizing a hundred or so of the best documented interactions between ET craft and military installations and pilots over the past 60 years . . . with either radar tracking records or otherwise documented official recognition . . . The book contains sections on some of the high-profile multiple-witness cases of incidents between ET craft and the military in Brazil, in China and the USSR and Mr Good has gathered a lot of new and deeply researched material . . . Every pilot of my acquaintance either has personal experience of encounters with UFOs, or has friends in the aviation community who have. I have seen them myself on two occasions whilst flying . . . Due to government suppression of sightings and attempts to ridicule witnesses, pilots don’t bother reporting them anymore, but certainly they talk to each other . . . The news media unfortunately colludes with the policy, so the cover-up continues. If the policy is forced to change suddenly, many of the ‘flat earthers’ in the population who choose to cling to the security offered by redundant belief systems and have hitherto refused to confront the evidence may face a major paradigm shift. The end of inter-human conflict and war? The end of religion as we know it? Let’s hope so.”
Archer Books, Hemel Hempstead, Herts.
"I must say it was the most comprehensive of the many books I have read on the UFO subject . . . "
Hon. Paul T. Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of Defence
