Thank you! There was a problem adding your email address. And this he does, with both a straightforward use of reliable documentation and a sly use of the Triangle ""Legend,"" tremulous parodies of which open each chapter. There are usually logical explanations, Watson, for all the vanishments; and the Triangle buff who uses his scanner on the contents will recognize all the ""cases:"" from the fabled derelict Mary Celeste found outside the Triangle anyway to the Ellen Austin from which even the salvage crew disappeared the writer of the story never revealed his source to the famous matter of the five Avenger bombers and their rescue plane which never returned, the Star Ariel, that DC, Marine Sulphur Queen, Sno' Boy, etc. The author finds plausible explanations for most of the tragedies -- bad weather conveniently not reported by the cult , communication gaps, fires, failed instruments, darkness inhibiting searches, etc.

Sort order. It's sad that this book is out of print.
The problem is that reality is boring. The truth about the Bermuda Triangle is that there is no Bermuda Triangle.
There is no specific area of the ocean where there are more mysterious or unexplained losses of ships or planes, and while there are some number of ships or planes that sink or crash and are never found, there aren't really that many. This is the only book about the Bermuda Triangle written by a trained researcher. Kusche went back to primary s It's sad that this book is out of print.
Kusche went back to primary sources and investigated every case that had been attributed to the Bermuda Triangle. And every case turns out to have a simple, prosaic explanation. In many cases the "lost" ship or plane is not a mystery at all. It's completely clear what happened to them and the wreckage was found. In other cases the ship or plane wasn't even lost. Basically sensation sells, and truth is unexciting.
Sad, really. Did you know that the weather hundreds of miles off-shore could be different than those in Florida? Who knew!
Apparently not a lot of Bermuda Triangle legend re-tellers. This book debunks so many legends merely by looking at weather records and ship logs that it's rediculous.
Now whenever i see a TV special on the Bermuda Triangle i yawn. The real mystery is why so many people can get their facts so wrong and how so many other people have taken these stories at face-value without any serious fac Did you know that the weather hundreds of miles off-shore could be different than those in Florida? The real mystery is why so many people can get their facts so wrong and how so many other people have taken these stories at face-value without any serious fact-checking.
Gotta love the long shelf-live of untested urban legends.
I wish more people would read this book. Feb 21, David Rank rated it it was amazing. Not only does Kusche debunk the nonsense about the so-called Burmuda Triangle, he outlines how facts and history can be distorted, manipulated, ignored and outright lied about to create from whole cloth a sinister controversy, conspiracy or whopper of a fairy tale to entertain for fun and, most pointedly, profit.
Dec 29, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: It's just too bad that so few people take the time to do research and find out the real story behind most of the garbage woo-woo stories that are spread around the internet, the dime store paperbacks, the b. If only this book were checked out more or as often than the Berlitz-type books, the world might be something of a better place.
While Mr. Kusche's book may not explain everything, it's a highly rational examination of the facts and sources behind some of the most enduring Bermuda Triangle tales.
All in all, the book takes away quite a bit of the mystery responsible for the legend of this region in a well-reasoned and well-presented manner. Jul 06, Mohamad Saleh Noorani Zadeh rated it liked it. I think this books doesn't really answer any questions. Just ONE answer for everything repeated and repeated all over the papers: Go Get A Life!
Wouldn't recommend it. In my opinion this is the most credible report on Bermuda triangle disappearings.
No mystery, just dry compilation of facts which speak for themselves. Kusche was a reference librarian at Arizona State University who saw increasing numbers of requests for information about the Triangle. So not only is this a triumph of library science over pseudoscience and sensationalism, it has other merits.
The writers who promulgate these modern myths tend to be anomaly hunters, willing perhaps unconsciously to fudge details like the location of the disappearance or add cosmetic embellishments if it makes the tale spookier.
They also tend to source each other rather than check back with primary references, which would clear up many of the so-called mysteries. This also means that they omit key details like stormy weather and proceed to assume that everything was otherwise fine. Second, it gave me an appreciation for how risky it was to traverse the Atlantic even until the Fifties and Sixties, and conversely, how amazingly safe traveling and shipping is in the modern day.
Third, there are some genuinely interesting stories in with the otherwise mundane losses and wrecks. WorldCat is the world's largest library catalog, helping you find library materials online.
