"Anyone interested in exploring JFK assassination conspiracy theories should read the Warren Commission Report, the House Select Committee Report, and McAdams’s JFK Assassination Logic
. The voluminous literature will fall into place. McAdams gives you a crucial road map—not to decide what you should think, but how to make up your mind in the face of conflicting information. His book is a must read."
"A useful primer for students and everyone whose skepticism needs refreshing. McAdams does not flatly rule out a JFK conspiracy, but spells out issues that should be considered by advocates of any specific conspiracy scenario—such as, would that have made sense to the conspirators?"
"John McAdams has the distinction of being both a clear thinker and a clear writer. This book takes on a subject many consider one of history’s great mysteries and offers simple tools to dismantle its apparent complexities—and, by extension, many more such mysteries in the world around us."
"Does your favorite Kennedy assassination theory stand up to scrutiny? Or were your views on what happened in Dallas shaped by misinformation from poorly equipped researchers? Professor John McAdams shows how conspiracy theorists have misled the public about this crucial event in American history."
