Editorial Reviews


"Liam Scheff's book "Official Stories" could easily be turned into 11 blockbuster movies. The book has a tasty entertaining appeal which is only exceeded by it's stunning educational value. The awareness and realization that the reader will inevitably reach as they devour and digest the material would leave most uninitiated among us disturbed. The facetious and humorous undertones in which the information is presented however, allows the reader to absorb the truth and assimilate the information in a manner that turns a necessary but undesirable consumable into a delicious entree' leaving you wanting a second serving. I personally believe that every high school student should be required to read this book before they graduate so that future generations can learn from the mistakes we've made and remain vigilant to prevent the same from occurring yet again. I can't recommend this book enough!" - Dr. Rashid A. Buttar, FAAPM, FACAM, FAAIM, Medical Director, Center for Advanced Medicine and Clinical Research, International Best Selling Author of "The 9 Steps to Keep the Doctor Away"

"The book is dynamite. I read Chapter 6 line by line, step by step, without once getting up. Riveting, funny, farcical, eye-opening and long overdue! It's a superb summation, combining the rage and fury the subject deserves, along with a steely sharp sense of wit and understatement that pillories and harpoons the squalid clique of AIDS racketeers we have come to know and loathe...Liam has wonderfully exquisite sense of irony and understatement akin to that Jimmy Kimmel and Dennis Miller." - Dr. Charles Geshekter, Emeritus Professor of African History, California State University/Chico

"Liam explains key moments in our history and present crisis. Like a wise, friendly and charming uncle, he strolls into our living rooms and begins chatting in an easy unassuming manner. No question, we understand exactly what he's talking about. It's clear, it's vivid, it's fascinating---and then all of a sudden, we're dropping down through space, down through a deep rabbit hole into the Truth, which is to say, the scams and cons and cover-ups and lies we've been fed about reality. He's giving us the precise details and weaving them together, still in that folksy way, and his story, we realize, is just the kind of reporting we've always wanted, tearing the lid off the mysteries...and it's too late to turn back...we're hooked, and we want to be hooked." - Jon Rappoport, Author and Editor, The Matrix Revealed

"Few explanatory journalists think or write like Liam Scheff. That's too bad. The Progressive Era's crusade to replace a partisan press with theoretically truth-vetted journalism was noble, but mis-guided. Progressives replaced tainted partisanship with faith-based reliance on oxymoronic social science "expertise" and with rule books interpreted by unaccountable bureaucrats--culprits who tell those Official Stories. Their tales are often convenient lies to mask ignorance, fear and greed, to cover the asses of officials who tell them. But these official versions are used also by "objective" journalists to cover their own rear ends, to get stories past editors by quoting authorities instead of doing their own research. Liam Scheff debunks official lies about things like "HIV" and "AIDS" with simple, research-informed language, proving you don't need advanced degree or keys to temples jealously guarded by the new Science and Medicine gods, who have replaced priests and princes as enforcers of Truth. Scheff writes with revealing and entertaining satire. His is a work I'll recommend to the future political reporters I try to teach about the increased politicizing - and corruption - of science and medicine." - Terry Michael, Director, Washington Center for Politics & Journalism

"Have you ever wondered why so many big events in history seem to have been (conveniently) perpetrated by one lone gunman - who often ends up dead? If so, Official Stories is the book for you. Liam Scheff asks big questions and then digs, digs, and digs to find answers the corporate and state media would never dare to report. If you are ready to lift the veil, read this book." - Leslie Manookian, Writer/Producer, "The Greater Good" vaccine documentary.

"What a powerful, hilarious and sometimes infuriating book Liam Scheff has written. It delivers like fireworks on the fourth of July and has more unexpected turns than a presidential motorcade driving down Houston Street. There are several books available that go into the JFK assassination, conspiracy, 9/11, vaccination, AIDS, and even Shakespeare but there's nothing, absolutely nothing like this!The chapters are threaded together in a very readable and entertaining way, the common players present in each one: the Lone Gunman, the Magic Bullet and of course, the Official story. Having a vaccine injured child, I've been researching vaccines for nearly 4 years and have never come across anything that delivers like this. I want everyone to read it. It really is that good." - April Boden - Writer, Activist and Mother of vaccine injured child; "AydansRecovery. blogspot.com"

"Liam Scheff brings you a version of the Kennedy assassination like a punch to the gut. Candid, concise and hard-hitting." - Jim Marrs, Author/Investigator of "Crossfire" and "The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy"

"For those who dare to venture there, way out behind the bleachers of argumentum ad populum, sits Liam Scheff, penning essays atop the grassy knoll of truth. "Official Stories" is more than a swift stick to beat down the lurking snakes and scoundrels meant to discourage your trek to enlightenment, this book is a bright light on the darkened myths we were brought up with in the old Republic. This is the wake-up call we've been waiting for." - Jeff Ogrisseg, Journalist, Tokyo

"After suffering 24 years of ill health, I learned that the official stories told to me about modern medicine were lies. Natural medicines unapproved by government healed me despite what I was told by the experts. From that moment on, I wondered what other things I had been taught to believe were true were merely stories to benefit the purveyors of the official stories. It turns out, there are a lot of other stories, official, yet untrue. Liam Scheff has captured and revealed many of them in one book unlike any I have ever read. Hook, line and sinker, each chapter reveals the official story, smoking gun and then scratches until the fallacy beneath its thin, yet often overwhelming veneer, is revealed. Good luck putting this book down, because with each chapter you will want to know about the next official story - now! It's brilliant, and it's about time." - Robert Scott Bell, Homeopath and National Radio Host

"It is often said, "exceptional claims require exceptional proof." But history shows otherwise that entrenched paradigms survive exceptional disproof for centuries. For example, if subjected to cross-examination, big bang cosmology would fail as abjectly as traditional creation stories to explain the universe. But the beliefs of religion and science are equally sacrosanct. They are not subject to investigative journalism. Liam Scheff in 'Official Stories' meets this vital need by challenging our beliefs in science with logic, common sense and humor." - Wal Thornhill, Physicist, Co-Founder of Thunderbolts.info, Co-Author, "The Electric Universe" and "Thunderbolts of the Gods."

This book is pure dynamite! You wont be able to put it down after the first page. I was hooked immediately and stayed up many a late night to read it, despite being super tired from having a new born baby and getting no sleep anyway! If this wasn't about true subjects, you woud think it was a hollywood blockbuster or some kind of thriller! It has you on the edge of your seat, and I regularly gasped out loud as I couldn't believe what I was reading, well, I could believe it thats why I was shocked. Finally the truth of what really has gone on in this world comes out in a way that is so easy to understand. The author is extremely gifted with the way he writes and it's obvious he has probably spent thousands of hours researching all of these subjects. This book is very deep, in that the topics such as 9/11, HIV and JFK are such heavy subjects that they could be a book in themselves. Never before have I read a book like this that has all of these vitally important topics in just one book. I feel like I now know the real history to many things I thought I knew about and Liam Scheff has opened my eyes to things I still believed were true! I cried in this book too there are quite a few moments where you just can't fathom the lies that people have been fed and the loss of so many human lives because of these lies. I dare anyone to read it, even if you aren't 'into' these kinds of subjects, read it and then tell me you still believe in the official stories you have been told. I personally think this book should be read 2-3 times so you really take it all in. And wow imagine a world if this book was given to students to read at school.........

This book is an absolute firecracker. It covers a lot of ground in a concise and condensed way. The confidence of the author's knowledge on the subjects is very clear. His writing is playful, charming, funny and entertaining even when covering some very disturbing issues. Liam Scheff does not pretend to be objective and definitely has a point of view but manages to express that without getting preachy. There are several books on 9/11, vaccines, HIV, JFK, Darwin, etc etc.. but I've never seen anything with all of them in one place. Most importantly it is thought provoking. Anyone who reads this, no matter what kind of expert they are, will learn, think, ponder and be changed. On some of the subjects I was very familiar and others not so much. Even if I knew the topic.. or thought I knew, I managed to learn much more and if I knew nothing at all, it was still very accessible. I sincerely hope that you buy this book and share it with your friends, you won't be disappointed.

First off, I have a bias, I know these topics, or at least many of them, very well. Almost everything in the 911 chapter I was familiar with, so this is obviously territory I've tread on before. JFK, Vaccination, CIA, & Darwin are all areas I know a good bit about also. Liam knocks this thing out of the ball park with his excellent research, perspective, and his sharp as razors sense of irony and sarcasm. Honestly, I don't know where this review will take me because I just finished this except for the final chapter and I'm amazed. And, it's not the JFK stuff or the 911 stuff or even the vaccination stuff or the Shake-Speare stuff in particular, it's the overall journey through Liam's mind and how well he hooked all of this together and shifted into Darwin and the Big Electric Bang to end it on an enlightening note. I already knew of Liam from the Robert Scott Bell Show which I had been listening to once I had got tired of Alex Jones mouth. BTW, Alan Watt at cuttingthroughthematrix***com... Go check that place out and be sure to LISTEN.

What Liam offers here is an extremely harsh reality, but with huge doses of humor which helps pull you along for the ride and then he takes you into the Universe in a manner that transcends both religious creationist dogma and bleak, random, Darwinist dogma. When he enters into the electric universe chapter be prepared to have your mind blown.

Though I am not an avid reader, I received this book as a gift from my father in-law, whom I was sure would start asking me questions about it soon, so I took to reading it right-away. Wow! I was blown away on what was revealed in the various chapters. The 911 stuff was a real revelation to me. I already believed our own people in the government knew it was coming down beforehand, and I had heard some of the conspiracy theories surrounding it, but all the incidents and details that Liam laid out in that chapter were shocking! Of course I looked online for supporting evidence and found credible information that backed up the stories told, plus some.

The Wall Street backed coup to overthrow our government was a story new to me and I read it with great interest. It served to highlight the fact that very wealthy and powerful people will go to any means necessary to get what they desire, even if it means a nation's demise. Though it didn't happen as planned, it appears that they ultimately got what they wanted in the first place; we are now the U.S.of A., Inc.

I won't comment on every chapter, but I must mention that the ones on Vaccines and HIV are certainly very pertinent today, as both are in the news constantly and are continuously entrenched in controversy and debate, amongst both scholars and lay persons, alike. Don't yell out "AIDS Denier!" as Liam does not say that. He merely calls to question the so-called single cause of AIDS, its `magic bullet,' HIV. And the Vaccine chapter makes one rethink the whole paradigm of modern medicine. When you review the history of how vaccines came about to begin with, and what they are made of, it reads like some cheap, twisted, sci-fi fractured fairy tale, with crazy mad scientists experimenting on the population at-large.
