Most books have titles that tend to be a little bit hyperbole. However, The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved does what it promises on the back of its cover. The book simply explains the phenomena inside the Bermuda Triangle. Furthermore, the book goes ahead to teach critical thinking lessons that will impress even a 10 year old boy.
The Bermuda Triangle is huge and busy with both sea and air traffic. The book doesn’t make statistical mention of all disappearances in more than one would expect. Furthermore, the book doesn’t mention the occurrence of ships or planes being stolen for drug money or other purposes.
Kusche, the author of the book rejects all Bermuda Triangle theories since he doesn’t think they are credible whatsoever. So from the beginning of his book, he has rejected all theoretical top-down approaches in favor of doing his own research to establish what the truth could be.
He treats every occurrence as a separate incident. Rather than ”lifting” stories previously published about the Bermuda Triangle, he looks up for references from documents, always writing to Coast Guards as well as other parties in order to find answers.
He even sought to find contemporary newspapers with stories published concerning the same. Finally, Kusche seems to be pretty well-conversant with navigation matters, compasses, ocean currents, and other matters related to the sea. He gained all this through writing to the relevant people to seek answers.
The Good & The Bad
If stories about the Bermuda Triangle has always fascinated you, then this is the only book you should read. The following are the strongest points of the book:
(a) You Will Know The Truth
Upon reading a few chapters of this book, you will realize that most authors are either lazy or dishonest. In fact, out of all the Bermuda Triangle incidences recorded, some are not factual. They are made-up stories whose purpose is to obviously make things more interestingly mysterious.
Kusche says a few vessels that were reported missing forever were actually found, and were safe and sound with their crews intact. These vessels were just delayed or prematurely reported as missing by some curious human beings. These are truths that can only be discovered when you gain knowledge about the stories that happened inside the Bermuda Triangle.
(b) Credible Findings
The book ends with credible findings that also mark the conclusion. With every occurrence examined on a case-by-case basis, the book warns that people shouldn’t postulate a Bermuda Triangle Effect. Although there are a few reported mysteries such as the loss of Star Ariel, Caroll A. Deering, there shouldn’t be a need to attribute the losses to a common cause as hinted in many books.
(c) In-Depth Answers That Even Documentaries Don’t Provide
Even if you’ve watched dozens of documentaries or read books talking about the infamous Bermuda Triangle, chances are that you’ve been left with questions you will never find answers to.
But just like we said, readers of Kusche’s book will, within a few chapters, start to recon the fact that most authors are just too lazy or dishonest when revealing information on the subject matter. So as a result, what they do is to paraphrase information from other sources, adding their own twist so their stories can keep rolling.
But the problem with this approach is that the reader will be entertained yet left with many questions in their minds. For instance, if you’ve heard or watched documentaries on Flight 19, you probably wonder why Taylor never switched communication to the clear emergency frequencies as was requested. All the answers are contained in Kusche’s well-researched work.
(d) He Uses Simple Language to Explain Complex Phenomena
In this piece of a book, Kusche explains why compasses change directions and such like principles. The language used in this book is simple and easy to understand as it can be grasped even by a 10 year old.
– Much of his work has probably been edited on Wikipedia several times, seeing that the book was first published in 1975. Beware since messages carried in books are sometimes distorted as years pass by.
Who is The Book For?
The book is for all those who want to satisfy their curiosity concerning the stories and myths they’ve heard about the Bermuda Triangle.
Just take away ‘‘paranormal mystery”, and what will be left behind is ”genuine mystery”. The book comes with a lot of snippets to offer useful insights into what Bermuda Triangle is and why exactly it is said that vessels disappear without trace in those waters.
