Publisher's Summary

This work of speculative nonfiction combines meticulous fact-finding from historian/researcher Richard M. Dolan and forward-leaning scenarios from journalist/screenwriter Bryce Zabel on the world's most mind-bending subject. The authors predict radical changes after official acknowledgment that at least some UFOs are intelligently controlled craft from somewhere other than Earth. A.D. After Disclosure isn't afraid to make mind-blowing, specific predictions, such as: Congress will hold Watergate-style hearings and ask secret-keepers, "What did you know and when did you know it? "The first decade A.D. (After Disclosure) will be like a high-tech 1960s, spawning massive cultural and societal change. Abductees will file a class-action suit against the government for withholding critical information. All the textbooks on planet Earth - from history to science - will need an immediate review. Whether disclosure leads to social panic or ushers in a new era of unity and peace, it will undoubtedly be a game-changing event.

Critic Reviews

"A.D. by Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel is an important attempt to prepare us for what will one day be inevitable: an open understanding that we are not alone." (Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D, Apollo 14 Astronaut)

Excellent work

Any additional comments?

I strongly recommend this book. There were so many topics which I hadn't ever considered, such as the wave of lawsuits that could happen and which parties could be impacted. Law enforcement... wow... I plan to listen to it again as it was that good. For me, that's rare.

dull and drawn out

What disappointed you about A.D. After Disclosure?

Thinking it might be an interesting book that could shed some new light on the UFO phenomenon. Boy was I wrong! I was looking for some new evidence or hard fact , what I got was hours of odd speculation about cover ups and what Hollywood would do after the disclosure of alien life. Save eleven hours of your reading time and try something else.

Has A.D. After Disclosure turned you off from other books in this genre?

yes

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Monotone reading certainly didn't help but there was no excitement or revelations to get excited about. To his credit he didn't nod off or laugh at some of the dumber ideas.

Wishful thinking

What was one of the most memorable moments of A.D. After Disclosure?

I follow a lot of Richard Dolans work, so this was right up my alley. A lot of great research done in this book. enjoyed it very much.

Any additional comments?

I like how the authors made out a real life scenario. I would love to see this become reality. Hopefully will see some of this Soon. Great information. Check it out.

Good read/listen

I really enjoyed this book, I think they got a lot right on the nose and have a good understanding of where we are as a society and how we could best get the information out. I think it is a good guide to what is probable to happen when the truth comes barreling into the light, with or without the help of the secret keepers.

Thoughtful predictions of humanity's reaction

Thorough coverage of many possible versions of the future when the government, or whatever organizations are in the know, share the knowledge of interaction with or by non-human or extraterrestial or other dimensional beings or civilizations.

Or, maybe the discussion will come about because it's too obvious and no longer secret.

There were a lot of versions of potential ramifications discussed. While I did finish the book, I did have to take a couple of breaks and listen to some lighter fare and then come back. The thing with scholarly researchers is that there's a lot of detail - and it's something I both like and despair of when reading such books.

The narration was fine.

Solid, a bit redundant

This book lays out some very important considerations about disclosure. I do think they went a little far in their step by step simulations, but it was worth the listen.

Karen wants her money back

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing about this book was new or worth wasting time reading.

What was most disappointing about Bryce Zabel and Richard M. Dolan ’s story?

This was a total waste of 11 hours of my life. A rehash of old, old theories. No names. No new facts. And quoting Whitney Streiber and Budd Hopkins as "experts" and right - if the aliens reveal themselves. What would people say then? Oh, my.

How could the performance have been better?

Naming names - even one name. A few times during the book they tried to lead off into fictional what if scenerios that could happen, but they fell off very quickly and wandered into movie makers and lawsuits. Boring. Harry Turtledove would do a better job of what if.

Thought-provoking

Extremely encompassing treatment of the subject matter. Excellent primer. Upon completion found myself frustrated upon confirmation of realization that the masses are often relegated to the category of naive useless eaters by the cognoscenti. Thanks to the authors for engaging in the good fight to abate the onslaught of privileged secrecy. We can only continue to hope...

"Speculative non-fiction" so fiction

Kevin Foley does a good job with the narration of this book. It feels a bit long and repetitive for the subject matter, which includes Dolan's usual wild conspiracies based on hearsay and, as usual, lacks references, names and so on. This book is based entirely on Dolan's theory of what the cover up is and by whom. If he is wrong about who is responsible or what the cover up is then the whole thing comes crashing down. If x is true, then y could happen and z could happen and so on. The book also feels a little dated post Covid.

That said, it was a good listen

One of the best UFO books out there

They explore the implications and changes in our world after we know we have been visited and lied to from a long time. Very thoughtful, detailed and plausible scenarios. Really recommend.

A very enjoyable and fascinating book

This is the first book I’ve read which combines a UFO history with what the world may look like after Disclosure. The narrators voice tone is always important for audio and at 1st felt unsure but actually really enjoyed their tone!

The story is intriguing and certainly makes you think of the “what ifs” following Disclosure. It is well interspersed with the history and I feel has contributed well to my developing knowledge of the UFO world. I would recommend the book. And chose it following another great book by one of the authors Richard Dolan!

Not what I expected from a Richard Dolan book

More a collection of disconnected speculations than a set of hypothesized chain of cause and effect.

A Great "What If" Scenario

A.D After Disclosure study's all the possible things that would happen AFTER we get definite proof we are not alone,it hardly mentions ET or Aliens,it concentrates on how Government and society would deal with such earth shattering News,especially for those too wrapped in their lives to even spend 5 seconds considering we are not alone in the Universe,which makes their worries,trivial by Comparison,all in all,it's a great story leaving me thinking for weeks afterwards
