    Occasionally I'm approached by individuals looking for the best-thinkers in the paranormal field. I've had some standard answers I've given, but all that has changed with this book. Now I tell them: 1) Spend six months listening to every paranormal podcast you can; 2) Buy IT DEFIES LANGUAGE! and adjust your opinions and B.S. (belief system) accordingly. What Greg Bishop has done with this book is a masterpiece in postmodern ufological thought. His admirable, ardent adherence to true agnosticism—open to both sides of the UFO debate—is a position anyone involved in Forteana should aspire to. In the coming years, I look forward to revisiting IT DEFIES LANGUAGE! in the hope that it will always keep both of my ideological feet planted firmly on the ground, keeping my "inner true believer" in check and my "inner skeptic" in a perpetual state of humble curiosity.

    This is an exceptional text for those looking to get acquainted with an irrational and language defying phenomena. Those familiar with Radio Misterioso, Greg Bishop's eclectic and always insightful podcast,should know this book is written with the same relaxed easy going tone and open minded curiosity as you can hear on his show. This book works as both a robust entry text into a unique field as well as an exceptional work for those who have invested themselves heavily in investigating a very unique mystery. His writings contain a dynamic breadth and depth of topics. For those who know Greg Bishop's history in the field this work represents a kind of autobiographical intersection with Ufology's most interesting figures, events and ideas. Greg's creative thinking on the phenomena opens up many avenues for future investigation. His opening quote from Burroughs says it all, "When you cut into the present the future leaks out." Sharpen your forks and knives people as Bishop has... More > served up an intellectual feast with this one. Red Pill Junkie's illustrations are brilliantly witty and are a welcomed addition to the great number of images and diagrams that are throughout this book. This is must have writing by a leading thinker in the field.< Less
