Bravo! Whereas this book does not go into great depth in evaluating individual conspiracy theories, it is an indispensible index in the library of those not easily fooled by surreptitious explanations of murders in the public forum. What's more, it serves another purpose. In bringing all of them together in one place one can see a remarkable consistency in many of them.
The most credible case for the JFK cover-up JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters presents compelling evidence the CIA orchestrated the JFK assassination to head off his intent to pull out of Vietnam. Likewise, the most credible case for the Pope John Paul I assassination The Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I presents much more than compelling proof the CIA orchestrated the assassination of the 33-day Pope when he motioned to give financial and arms support to revolutionaries in Central America who were fighting an uphill struggle against the coalition of the United States and ruling juntas and the CIA's Contra death squads.
Even for those who have spent a lifetime preoccupied with one or more of these cover-ups as I have, The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups: The 100 Most Terrifying Conspiracies of All Time reveals great similarity in many of them. Start with this book as it raises the questions. Then go on to the others for the answers.
I did pay full retail for this product!
Examples of biased views:
The author is convinced the Moon Landing Conspiracy is bogus and says "Apollo 11, of course, did go to the moon." Why don't you just say "I have no proof it did or did not go so I will believe what the media shows me on TV."?
The author is also clearly convinced that 9/11 was as the media claims it to be and states "The rest is history, not conspiracy theory." His evidence for that is the government's own 911 commisson report and government-paid experts, so of course they don't doubt it. (I have been convinced otherwise by information and facts provided by engineers and footage in the Loose Change: the final cut movie. These professionals are not getting paid by the US Government. The most convincing video in there is the CNN video where the (on 9/11) on site journalist reports to CNN that she just got word that building 7 has fallen. Being that the New York skyline is behind her, you can clearly see building 7 behind her in the distance! She goes off camera live before the building actually fell. Clearly suspicious. So who gave her that information, and how did they know it was to fall in a matter of minutes? We may never know.
