For more than forty years, the US government, through various military and intelligence agencies, has invested millions in classified programs that study the role of mental telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and other forms of extrasensory perception as a means of intelligence collection for military and defense purposes.

Now, for the first time, New York Times bestselling author Annie Jacobsen tells the story of these programs, using interviews with the core group of individuals—including former Defense Department scientists, military officers, CIA analysts and researchers, an Apollo 14 astronaut, government psychics, and members of the Aviary—who ran these phenomena programs at the highest level of government.

Phenomena is a quest narrative—a story about how far man will journey in search of improbable and mysterious things—with documentation showing which of these improbable things might actually exist.
