Abucted: How People Come to Believe They Were Abducted By Aliens by Susan Clancy

A patron told me this was won of the two best books she read last year. Here’s a quote from Publisher’s Weekly:

“If you’re going to read just one book about alien abductions, make it this one. And if you think alien abduction stories aren’t worth considering seriously, Clancy will convince you otherwise. A postdoctoral fellow in psychology at Harvard, she follows the dictum of William James to “take ‘weird beliefs’ seriously but not literally.” Thus, she considers that the belief that one has been abducted by little gray beings with large, black catlike eyes, subjected to intrusive and painful physical examinations and exploited to create hybrid human/alien babies serves the deep human need to find meaning in one’s life.”
