I have read a few of the other Disinformation books, many of which had decent content and quality editing. This book, however, really disappoints. Rather than containing writings that cut through common knowledge and propaganda to find the truth behind issues, Underground! seems to be cobbled together from a random selection of essays that emphasize the incredible over the likely. Worse, some of the "experts" are shaky at best. Dave Dentel writes a sloppy Creationist screed entitled "Mysterious Origins - Are Humans Just a Happy Accident?" that trots out all the usual Intelligent Design "evidence" and pathetically misinterprets / misunderstands statements made by scientists such as Dawkins, Gould, etc. Not that his misunderstanding of evolutionary science should be surprising, as he is a newspaper copy editor. Not exactly sure how this qualifies him as an expert on the topic, but whatever. Also, just to nitpick, the editing is clearly weak. Yes, these books are collections of essays and you should expect the writers' voices to change throughout the book, but this is all over the map. Avoid Underground! and pick up one of the other generally interesting Disinformation books instead.

Great book for those who are open-minded towards alternative history and archaeology that you weren't taught in school. Another great book with factual American history that wasn't in your school text books is "Everything You Know is Wrong" by the same Disinformation series. One story, that was never in my school books, is about the Ludlow Massacre in Colorado in 1914 in which at least 20 people were killed including women and 11 children by the Colorado National Guard

I'm a big conspiracy buff, have read quite a bit of alternative news and views, and I must say this book is a huge dissappointment. In fact, it's disspointing to the point of being suspect.

The articles included here in this collection are neither "astonishing" nor "hidden." There is little information to back up the claims of the authors, and nothing noteworthy is delivered in their promises of hidden knowledge.

A perfect example is the article on the 33rd parallel and ancient to modern anomalies regarding this phenomenon. Of course, the author just lays out the "syncronicities", but doesn't go so far as to even attempt to illuminate the reader of ideas surrounding it's significance. They don't go into details of links between the Knights Templars and modern masonry, historical numerology, occult tie-ins, or contemporary theories involving the Illuminati.

The Disinfo guide delivers what it promises, half-baked leads with no end in sight, and enough disinfo regarding ancient history to make you swear off researching the topic for good. Avoid this, and any other Disinfo book, as this one indicates the author takes his job of spreading disinfo seriously.
