Amazon.com Review

Look out Robert Anton Wilson! Either David Icke is competing for the "Paranoid of the Decade" award or he knows something the rest of us don't. Icke reveals a sinister web connecting everything from the British royal family to major oil companies, to 33 of the last 40 U.S. presidents, in a global conspiracy masterminded by an interstellar brotherhood vying for planetary control through the manipulation of humanity's very way of life. Icke digs into every facet of contemporary society to expose the invisible horror lurking beneath the calm veneer of everyday life. In the process he gets downright offensive, knocking everything from Judaism to the Denver airport. Even if you can't swallow Icke's distasteful revelations or follow every step of his labyrinthine conspiracy theories, The Biggest Secret is sure to forever change the way you look at the Amoco oil logo. --Brian Patterson

David Icke with his horrid mullet haircut and his less than appealing fashion sense has long been a figure of fun in the UK. A couple of days ago I was browsing at my local bookshop when a middle aged couple asked a girl at the counter where they could find this very book. She and her colleagues burst out laughing before directing the blushing pair to the 'new age/occult' section of the store (Icke certainly does not belong to either of these fields). The couple fingered a copy of The Biggest Secret obviously embarrased. They soon left without making a purchase and with their tails between their legs. I had wanted to assure them that it was a worthy read but I stalled for fear of being ridiculed as well, and they had gone before I mustered the courage.
This is significant because believing in what you feel to be right and not being detered by fear of public ridicule is in many ways at the core of what Icke is saying. This is why a NOT impressively endowed Icke pictures himself butt-naked on the cover of 'I am me, I am free'. He is demonstrating that he has liberated himself from the derogatory value judgements of society and the media. They mock him and he happily supplies them with more fuel to continue doing so. For this alone he deserves respect! We all want to be free of the pressure to conform, don't we?
Icke doesn't profess to be someone special. He wants us all to be exposed to the truth, whatever that might be, and to make informed choices about our lives. Each of us can then choose our own individual path. Not some collective path that everyone must follow or suffer the wrath of the majority.
I have heard accusations of anti-semitism levelled at Icke. Well if 'The Biggest Secret' is anything to go by that notion is bollocks (as we say in England).

I first read this book a year ago. At that time I'd have given it 2 - maybe 3 stars. It was too "out there". I could see enough info I'd already learned from research to not dismiss it - but the ideas were ones I did not want to own. It would have been easier to think it wasn't true. Reptilians? Come on!
But over this year, I've investigated everything from ancient texts to modern news. (The ancient, buried texts are the most revealing.) I've put a million miles in on my cyber journey to study this. I now have two shelves full of notebooks with printed matter. I've spent 10 times the cost of this book in paper and ink and many, many late nights reading.
All that time, all that work, all that reading has brought me to the undeniable conclusion that this book is overwhelmingly true. Terribly true. I only wish we could get the rest of the thinking world to read it. Only armed with knowlege can we change it.
Get the book. Act on it. Finding out the real truth is one of the few hopes we have. Only then can we know the RIGHT direction to save ourselves.

"The Biggest Secret" is better than "Behold a Pale Horse" by William Cooper in explaining global political manipulations, flying saucers, the "new age", mind control, the income tax scam, freemasonry, etc. Before reading this book, I had read many books on these and similar subjects, but there was never a good explanation of what was behind it all. And most of the books were heavily biased by the authors' political and religious beliefs. I don't find that with David Icke, who is fed up with both organized religion and politics. He explains the above subjects and how they tie in to each other. He gives a rational, if somewhat far-fetched, explanation of the way the world works. For better or worse, things are now starting to make sense to me.
Well documented references.

When I first read this book, I thought it was a hoax. Later, I realized that it was seriously meant. Since the book is completely insane, I find it hard to say anything objective about it. Yet, I will give it my best shot.

The author, David Icke, is British and used to be a sports commentator on British TV, commenting both soccer and snooker. Then, he became a spokesperson for the Green Party. Even later, he experienced a spiritual awakening or divine revelation, turning him into a New Age guru of sorts. He began writing books containing various conspiracy theories, including "The Truth Shall Set You Free" and "The Robots Rebellion".

Jewish organizations have accused Icke of anti-Semitism. Anarchists and Trotskyists see him as a fascist, and have busted up his meetings. In Sweden, anarchists abstained from protesting a meeting by Icke only because they regarded him as crazy. A Swedish anti-Semitic group, the Hylozoiks, translated at least one of Icke's books to Swedish. This group believes that Jews are controlled by evil aliens based at Pluto.

In this book, "The Biggest Secret", Icke implicitly distances himself from anti-Semitism by calling the evil force at work in the universe "Aryans". However, he still supports the Christian Patriot movement in the US. While the militias are not necessarily fascist, they are nevertheless a very problematic milieu. Icke might not be "far right", but his ideas can still be used in such contexts. Still, the Hylozoiks took a clue and stopped fronting for Icke.

What are the main ideas of "The Biggest Secret"? Essentialy these: In secret, Earth is ruled by multi-dimensional shape-shifting space aliens, whom Icke dubbes "Aryan reptilians".
