Format: Paperback
Since before I was born, many Americans have believed that there was a cover-up in relation to the assassination of John F Kennedy. Many believed that the Warren Commission was a white-wash that refused to investigate any possibility other than the possibility that Lee H. Oswald was a lone assassin who acted on his own in killing former President Kennedy. This book proves beyond a shadow of doubt that Oswald could NOT have killed Kennedy.

It also shows that those in the federal government tampered with evidence and even manufactured evidence to implicate Oswald. It proves that the fatal shot that killed the President came from IN FRONT of the limousine the President was riding in. It also sites 15 instances of complicity by the Secret Service in JFK's murder. It also proves that there were a MINIMUM of 6 shots fired at JFK and the limousine that he was riding in. It shows how Arlen Specter and other members of the Warren Commission bent over backwards to not arrive at the truth in their investigation. It shows how Doctors who were in the trauma room and worked on President Kennedy's gunshot wounds have been hounded and persecuted for telling what they know and not agreeing with the official line on Kennedy's assassination. Medical experts (including those who saw Kennedy's gunshot wounds) explain exactly what happened to the President. Experts on Photography and Cinematography explain how the Zapruder film was edited; experts on radiology explain how x-rays were altered. Witnesses who actually witnessed the shooting were interviewed. The whole thing is very professional and exhaustively researched.

The only complaint I have about the book is that it reads like a series of investigative reports published by experts for experts. I'm just a common layman.

The Thinking Man's Warren Report...
Fetzer's collation of articles by meticulous JFK assassination researchers is fascinating, technical, rigorous and compelling. If you want someone to make it simple for you, go elsewhere. On the other hand, if you are a serious, data-driven JFK buff, this book is a gold mine. The evidence presented was authoritative and convincing - especially the discussion of the optical density data on the autopsy X-rays and the minute analysis of the Zabruder film. (I dug out my Life photos of the Zabruder film, for instance, and was floored to realize that several glaring inconsistancies were right in front of me, all along...)
There is no particular effort to answer the 'Who Dunnit?' - except to add enormous credence to the premise that the American government agencies, FBI SS, CIA, military,etc., must have participated, at least on some level.
As one with a long-standing fascination on the role of scientists in the philosophical quest for knowledge,(while at the same time being a shameless physics junkie), I especially appreciated Fetzer's contributions(and other's), on logical fallacy, the nature of proof, and the pitfalls of researching outside a cohesive scientific community.
I realize that Fetzer has an axe to grind with JAMA, but having cut my conspiracy teeth on Crenshaw's JFK, Conspiracy of Silence, I felt that axe needed the work. Were I a physician, I'd quit the AMA over their treatment of Crenshaw.
The book contains invaluable references to other responsible works on the assassination, providing if not a roadmap, at least a starting point in the wilderness; there are thousands of volumes on this highly popular subject, so this is no small favor.
All in all, the book lives up to its title. I am still reeling from the final chapters!

Format: Paperback
The most important aspect of this work is the background of its author. Professor Fetzer's credentials are extraordinary. He is a recognized expert in the philosophy of science field. His scholarly work on "critical thinking" is widely acknowledged as brilliant. His application of those skills to the JFK assassination is the first of its kind. His conclusions are only far-fetched and bizarre if you believe that the rigorous application of scientific principles is useless. Buy the book and read it carefully. It is shocking.

This is one of the best books on the JFK Assassination.it is very detailed and meticulous in evidence and research.if this book does not convince you that there was a conspiracy involved in the murder of JFK no other book will.as a companion volume may I suggest Murder in dealy plaza!!

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Tom Cody on January 25, 2005
Format: Paperback
Simply put, this book presents solid SCIENTIFIC evidence that was at least two or more shooters. The book itself reads like a magazine and compiles the top articles pertaining to scientific evidence in the case. Fetzer himself only wrote maybe 1/3 of the articles and does not seek to present any of his personal theories on WHO did it, but simply presents evidence that proves that there was a conspiracy. A must for any serious researcher.

Format: Paperback
A former University of Utah professor of mine concluded that the Kennedy assassination represented the "consummate slippery slope" issue -so much so, that we should not expect to see a solution in "our lifetime." I regret that I allowed such thinking to infect my objectivity, especially after reading Dr. James Fetzer's Assassination Science. Dr. Fetzer has clearly and irrefutably demonstrated the mechanics of the cover-up, from the machinations and improprieties at Bethesda, to the deception and disguise related to the Zupruder film. Anyone who has a modicum of interest in the future political integrity of this nation, should have a copy of Assassination Science on their book shelf.
