Reviews (From Amazon)

4 out of 5 stars Reader from Minneapolis, April 25, 2000

Reviewer: A reader from USA
I read Above Black several months ago and am glad it is getting the exposure it is receiving. The whole question of the alien agenda is highly fascinating and suggests something very deep going on in the psyche of the modern world. Re: the negative review suggesting Dan Sherman is lying and corrupting young children -- this sort of approach is non-constructive at best and short-sighted and mean at worst. Mr. Sherman goes out of his way to maintain his own skepticism throughout the book. Whether that is a manipulation or not, I have no way of knowing. It does however increase the veracity of what he is suggesting happened to him. (continued next page)

5 out of 5 stars Believe the Truth or dismiss it and believe the lie, May 23, 2004
Reviewer: xx20 from Cedar Rapids, Iowa
This book is believable. He has a blunt writing style. Dan Sherman was not trying to write an episode to a sci-fi low budget TV show, he was telling about his experiences in the Air Force communicating with aliens. I could tell that this was a true story when I was reading the part of when he tried to describe how he communicated with the aliens. He had much difficulty describing it. I suggest you read the book. The reader familiar with the whole UFO deal will enjoy the part about "black" projects. I think that black projects are used to discount the ET explanation for things, such as saying it was a military aircraft not a UFO (when sometimes it is a UFO), which I believe is enforced in this book. Good book, will help you connect some dots.

5 out of 5 stars Above Black is an Excellent Insiders Account!, May 5, 2004
Reviewer: Evan C from Chippewa Falls, WI
Above Black is captivating and interesting from the moment you pick it up, until the moment you put it down. SSGT Dan Sherman talks about his time as an IC (or intuitive communicator), in which he was taught to use a special ability that he was givin through "Genetic Management". This book is worth your time, and an excellent read. It really opens your eyes, and allows you to make sense of a lot of things. Regardless if you are a UFO skeptic or enthusiest, you need to read this book!

5 out of 5 stars Above Black, March 7, 2004
Reviewer: claudeshires from Los Angeles
I loved the book-too often people look only at what is written on the surface-it is what isn't written in this text that is so fascinating- real experiences follow a path of logic that leaves memory in chunks-ie not like a fictional account-these are the kind of people that we can all learn from-not so concerned about looking good, just sharing the truth the best they know how-Thanks Dan.

5 out of 5 stars Ignore The Critics On This One..., May 17, 2003
Reviewer: kathryn kiffmann from Hawaii
Never trust a critic you don't meet in person, as they could have ulterior motives. The book is great. I read close to 20 books monthly and one sure way to decipher someones' integrity is by viewing their written word. If its as exciting as "Harry Potter", its probably fiction. Sherman is not a good fabricator, the book is bland, and it reads like a student essay that they had to do whether they enjoyed it or not. At the end of the book, the man requests that anyone who has shared similar experiences contact him, as he HAS NO IDEA what the purpose was for his involvement, and its obviously important for him to find out. He's not looking for a bestseller, he's looking for answers about what happened to him and is hoping somebody out there will answer his "preverbial 'want ad". READ IT.

5 out of 5 stars Presents facts, and does not speculate or make anything up., December 31, 2002
Reviewer: Jamie Innes from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand
Above Black is about a guy who worked for the NSA as an "IC" (Intuitive Communicator). The book follows his journey from the military through his IC training, and to his time as a telepathic communicator (with aliens). And lastly, his discovery and reason for wanting to get out.

I saw there are a couple of negative reviews of this book, which I strictly think is very unjust. This book is a real story. To those people who would give this book a bad review, and to those who do not yet "believe" in aliens, consider this...

Statistically, the more educated a person is, the more likely they are to "believe".

This book is a factual and non-sensationalistic account of a man's career in a job most of us would never guess even existed, and an account of something Dan Sherman (author) has had the opportunity to do that most of us never will.

I conclude:

For those of you who do already "believe", then this book is for you (albiet it's quite short, only 150 pages). But for those of you who are still highly sceptical and have not ALREADY read other books on the topic, this book is NOT for you, it's way above your head.

5 out of 5 stars Independent Verification of PPD's Existence, February 27, 2002
Reviewer: Robert J Huff from Arvada, CO USA
For the interested, about three years ago I met with a retired AT&T marketing executive. His market segment was the US Intelligence Community. Upon learning this I inquired about Project Preserver Destiny - the subject of Sherman's book. He said yes had heard of the project at a classified briefing and he also understood that communication withs aliens were occurring somewhere in the American West.

Interesting Tidbits

I hate that I was correct, but check out my uncanny prediction of what turned out to be the Indonesian earthquake.

Black Box
Could this machine be linked somehow to my intuitive abilities? It's an interesting read. Particularly regarding the machine being affected by people concentrating on a particular outcome.

Numbers Stations
This is also an interesting read. Could it correlate to what I experienced with my comms, only in the audible range? There are a few similarities in the structure of the messages to what I experienced. Very, very interesting.

Frequently Asked Questions

I get a LOT of emails asking me questions about my experience... etc. Here are answers to a few of the more popular ones so I can hopefully save time by not having to repeat myself.

Of course, there are many questions that are answered within the text of my book. That's why people write books... to give info. So, the questions I answer here are for the most part, not covered in the book or are important to know prior to reading the book.

If you have a question that isn't covered in the book, and I don't answer it here, please feel free to email me. I answer emails as quickly as I can. Please try to keep the email short, succinct and to the point. This helps me answer it quicker.

How is it that the government has allowed you to come forward with this obviously classified information?

They didn't allow or disallow anything. They had no choice. You have to understand that I didn't seek permission to write this book. I wrote it in complete secrecy, not even my wife knowing about it at first. Once it was finished, I initially sent it to Glenn Campbell at ufomind.com. I knew that once the manuscript was released into the public domain, there was nothing the government could do about it. It's also one of the reason I chose to self-publish the book. If it were published through traditional methods, flags could have been raised before reaching the street and the whole project could have been squashed before the public could set eyes to it.

So, the answer to the question is, I left them no choice. It was out before they could even react. Now, the REAL question is, "Why don't they arrest you for releasing classified information?" Here's where the "Above Black" classification of grey projects works to defeat itself. (This is more clearly spelled out in the book and in greater detail regarding the levels of classification and how they work to shield the one higher... etc.) Because I discussed ONLY aspects of my job related to the alien project I worked on, and not the black co-located projects I worked on, arresting me would only lend credibility to my story. They obviously don't want that to happen. So, as long as they leave it alone, it appears to the public at large that I'm just another loony talking about alien stuff. The kicker (and why they aren't too worried about further investigation regarding my story) is that the project I worked on had absolutely no physical evidence linking itself to the fact it was an alien project (at least accessible to me.) So, bottom line, they have no compelling reason to silence me.

It's a Catch-22 situation for me. I can talk all I want, but I have no evidence. But precisely BECAUSE I have no evidence, I can talk without fear of being arrested or worse.

Why don't they arrest you for releasing classified information?

This is answered in the paragraph above.

Have you attempted to initiate comms with either of your two alien contacts since being discharged?

The first day after I was de-briefed from the program, I attempted to initiate comms. There was nothing... blank. I have tried many times since, but there is no response. It's evident that my communications were related specifically to my job and were not authorized apart from it.

If your goal is to spread your experience to a wider audience and not to make money, why don't you offer your story for free on the Internet?

Besides the first question, this is the most common question I receive. My book was first released in October 1997. For more than 3 years it was posted on myportal.com for free and I had the ebook free to read here at aboveblack.com for a long time. When the contents of the book were free to read, aboveblack.com was receiving an average of about 100 hits a day. So, presumably, about 100 people a day were being exposed to my experience.

Since I decided to start charging again and sinking revenue from the sales back into marketing the book, aboveblack.com is now averaging well over 5000 hits a day. So, when the contents of the book were free, we were reaching about 100 people a day. Now we are reaching over 5000 people a day. You tell me what method is the best one for exposing my experience to more people! Advertising works, plain and simple. And as anyone knows, advertising costs MONEY and lots of it. We put 80% to 90% of our profit back into advertising for the book the rest going to help me do speaking engagements and such.

So, please don't think that just because I'm not offering the text of my book for free that I am not interested in getting my experience out to more people.

What makes you feel that you weren't misled and that you REALLY were communicating with aliens?

The short answer is that I really don't know for sure. However, the nature of the comms were VERY different from how we as humans communicate. We have a definite linearity to the way we communicate. For example, in our written communications, we have a sentence structure. It starts to the left and ends to the right. One word is followed by another. Same concept in our verbal communications. We have a beginning of our sentences an end and a middle. Our communication is confined to a structure that is based on the concept of time.

The comms I experienced were not based on time. They were immediate in the conveyance and for the most part in the receiving. I say for the most part, because I'm sure if I were one of them, comms would have been instantaneous. However, I am human and my human mind was converting the comms as they came. You can relate it to a digital to analog converter. It's not as efficient as receiving and decoding in straight digital, but it works good enough.

If these were humans I was comming with, I think (and it's only an assumption on my part) that the comms would have had a more linear pattern to them.

But again, I don't know this for sure. But there were other less tangible aspects of the comms that let me to believe they were not human in nature.
