Mainly I want to thank you, John Mack, for two things - having an open mind to understand that science is about what we DON'T know and for somehow being able to articulate all the subtleties of this "issue" in a very understandable way. With all the factors and nuances and "maybes" in exploring the possibility of "alien abductions," I find it amazing that you can explain everything without using convoluted and hard-to-read/absorb sentences; and I appreciate it. I really like the way you keep things straight for the reader, by saying things like 'there's more discussion of this is Appendix A," etc.

If you're a reader considering buying this book, I couldn't recommend it more highly.
John E. Mack has been a pioneer in the alien abduction phenomena, stumbling onto it by accident when helping his patients cope with their experiences. This is a compelling book. I highly recommend it. I also recommend Passport to the Cosmos by Mack.
Abduction by Dr. Mack explores the more spiritual aspect of the abduction phenomena by highlighting several cases of abductees who have come to terms with their abductions and even the abductors. Several of these abductees even believe they have a dual alien/human life, and one even believes he's 100% alien and he volunteered to come to earth as a human during reincarnation. I don't discount these views because the abduction scenario is so odd as a whole, who can say what is real. I tend to believe the aliens are conducting a misinformation campaign and deliberately confusing us so they can continue their agenda, whatever it may be. I disagree with Dr. Mack that they are possibly here to save mankind. They're going through an awful lot of trouble to soley benefit the human race while they themselves have little to gain. I lean more towards Dr. Jacobs theory and recommend any of you to read that as well, to understand both sides of the coin so to speak. The book is written well and professional and Dr. Mack is a well educated, well respected psychiatrist so I don't take his theory with a grain of salt, but he does at times seem reluctant to accept the possibility that we are in our end times. Even when his patients describe apocalyptic images shown to them by the aliens, Dr. Mack seems to try to label it a hypothetical, or perhaps taking place in a different dimension or parallel universe. I for one hope he is right, but I'm not so convinced. I do however appreciate the opposite end of the spectrum and reading of enlightening situations and not the doom and gloom versions most abduction books take on. I would highly recommend this book to any body interested in the unknown. It was a great and informative read.
I give it five stars not because I think it's perfect, but because it's quite unlike any book I've ever read. It's an alternative view of reality. The stories might seem incredibly far-fetched, but in the appendix, Mack does quite a good job of giving a psychiatric defense of what the books says. It really makes you wonder whether there is much more to reality than we think.

John Mack is a genius. Im so thankful he compiled this much data for us to go over. Highly recommend all his books even to those who ARENT interested in aliens. Eye opening information in each book.
If you are intrigued by the subject matter, I would highly recommend this read. If you are even a tad interested in the subject matter, I would still recommend this read. John Mack delivered. Always. R.I.P. John E. Mack.
I can relate to most of the abductees, since I was abducted at age 7 and was never allowed to talk about was only a nightmare my mother would say...I'm 64 now and I remember when and where it took place. All my life I have kept it to myself, but that has never stopped me from happy and thankful to know I'm not crazy and to think I was. I have read many books on abduction...but I must say this one has been the best written by Dr. Mack. Dr. Jacobs book have been also very educational. I want to thank these two doctors and everyone else who has dare to speak out the truth on Aliens.
The late John Mack shared another view of the abduction phenomenon in this book. The baker's dozen of cases he examines are rather touchy-feely and frankly I felt that his clients got farther and farther "out there" as the book went along. Each case was more esoteric than the one previous, with people claiming to be half-alien, going into past lives, etc. I was hoping for a more clinical look at the hypnotherapy sessions, but Mack seemed to swallow their stories whole-hog. I would have liked to have seen a more neutral stance on Mack's part. This book was "okay" and some might find it fascinating, but I can't completely recommend it.
