According to Kai Bird, a a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer and director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography at the City University of New York, "Annie Jacobsen has a history of publishing sensational, conspiracy-driven books that sell well. Her topics — Nazi scientists, UFOs, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the history of government-financed investigations of the paranormal — must appeal to some readers’ desire for astounding revelations." Bird recently critiqued Jacobsen's latest book, "Surprise, Kill, Vanish" (see link).

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Richard Rhodes called “Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base” an “error-ridden job of reporting” and accused Jacobsen of being “at a minimum extraordinarily gullible or journalistically incompetent.”
