Reviews and Comments:
"Hansen, a freelance journalist who has studied both the UFO subject and the press/government relationship for a couple of decades, has produced perhaps one of the most important books about the UFO subject in decades."
- John L. Peterson, president and founder of the Arlingon Institute, writing in Vol. 15:3 of the Journal of Scientific Exploration (2001).

"It is as sober and damning a verdict on the media as one is ever likely to come across. The Missing Times is not only one of the most extraordinary books to emerge on the UFO subject in modern times, but is richly deserving of a place among any and all literary and academic works devoted to the history of the media."
- UFO Magazine (UK), June 2002
"Your book is one of the very best I've read. It's a veritable masterpiece of investigative journalism, combining erudition and objectivity with completely logical analysis - and perfect syntax."
- Timothy Good, author of Beyond Top Secret and other works
"In all seriousness, this is a landmark book."
- A Seattle reader
"In this carefully researched and referenced volume, Terry Hansen exploses the all-too-common tendency of reporters to distort information and avoid the truth of the UFO reality, as well as the deceipt employed by the U.S. government to preserve the status quo."
- John Mack, M.D.
"The Missing Times answered all my former questions, gave me a much fuller viewpoint of the UFO issues. I would place or rate your book, probably in the top ten I've ever read on UFOs...."
- George D. Fawcett
"I personally believe that this book, as with Richard Dolan's UFOs and the National Security State, is a must-have reference book in any researcher's or concerned citiizen's UFO library. The Missing Times will make the reader sit up and take notice, looking at mainstream media with a critical and jaundiced eye. We've been had, Bunky!"

"I just finished The Missing Times a few weeks ago. It was one of the most important books I've read in the last decade -- probably the most important, and I read a lot, almost all of it serious non-fiction. It would be almost as important even if it had never gotten to the subject of UFOs, simply for opening people's eyes to the reality and the ubiquity of propaganda. It should be mandatory reading in high school history or civics."

In 2002, The Missing Times was awarded "Best Book In a UFO Subject" by Britain's UFO Magazine.
