Alien Invasion

The Ultimate Survival Guide for the Ultimate Attack

The ultimate survival guide for the ultimate attack – written by two top scientists who know their subject inside and out!  An amazing journey through what we do – and do not – know about how to defend ourselves before, during and after an alien invasion from space. 

What if there really are aliens and they do attack?  Read what two scientists reveal in this “how-to” survival manual for the space age. 

Alien invasion.  Unlikely? As unlikely as Pearl Harbor?  The extinction of the dinosaurs?  A meteor strike that levels whole forests in Siberia?  You get the drift.  Some events produce such a massive setback to life, the Earth and to humanity that we must understand and prepare for them, even if the chances are low that they’ll come about.  In fact, it will be criminal and abrogation of our duty to future generations if we do not get ready!  But where to begin?

Drs. Travis S. Taylor and Bob Boan have the answers.  Both are experienced scientists, physicists with expertise in both defense and military signal intelligence and experience working with both the Department of Defense and NASA.  These are intellectual heavyweights who have a clear idea of the possibilities of alien contact, the calculations of whether or not that contact will be friendly…and what to do if it’s not.

An amazing journey through what we do – and do not – know about how to defend ourselves from space.  Sure, that day may never come in our lifetimes – but everyone should have a copy of this lying around JUST IN CASE.  Heck, better yet, why not commit a few of these scientists solutions to memory! Just in case.

About Alien Invasion:
“In a business that strictly separates technology and conjecture, this is a well considered, very comprehensive work. United States Space is a serious business, but what IF there is an external threat?”— Dr Byron Knight, NRO Chief Scientist, MASINT

“...the definitive book on the defense of earth against a potential alien incursion....the book also serves as an important primer on the potential future of warfare on every level. It is tightly grounded in current day realities of war and extrapolates thoughtfully but closely about future potentials. It should be on the reading list of anyone who is serious about national security and the future of war.” — John Ringo, New York Times best-selling author of military SF

“It looks like the time has come to take a serious look at planetary defense from all aspects. This book introduces the subject in a way to stir thoughtful and intelligent debate. Hats off to the authors.” — Gerald B. Helman, former US Ambassador to the UN Geneva and Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs
