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!

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.

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.

James Fetzer is a spearhead to a network with a mission that I hope succeeds in bringing about a new and real investigation into JFK's assassination.

This book is worth your while!

Assassination Science is not another one of those books of individual authorship spewing off about some conclusion based on some newly discovered technology. Rather this book is a collection of works from a number of credible and well credentialed people that present us with some physical aspects to the JFK Assassination that we should really be concerned about. Dr. David Mantik, for one illustrates how the official X-Rays cannot be those of Kennedy. Later in the book we are confronted with the fact that the Zapruder film was altered and how.

80% of the contributing authors to this book hold an MD, a PhD, or both. These people are well educated and speak from an objective, independent analysis. If you are looking for something really exciting or dramatic, you won't find it here. You might even find yourself board. But try to understand this book is written by academic types who don't write murder mysteries or fantasy books. Their forte is writing about science that can be dull. This book may not be an easy read, but if you want to catch up on what has happened in the way advancement in the case of evidence that proves conspiracy with JFK's assassination in the last twenty years, read this book. And lets us remember there is no one definitive book on the assassination of John Kennedy. Read about fifty and you might be getting somewhere. Fetzer and his associates do a good job at contributing to a history where we should be concerned with the truth.
