7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Phillip K. Spamer on 19 May 2004
Format: Hardcover
I sat down and read this book during most of my spare time, and was amazed at the lengths people had gone too to cover up one of the most famous assassinations of our time: that of John F Kennedy. Lifton started his investigation in his own time, not realising it would continue for way over a decade. He uncovers new evidence not found by the Warren Commision, and thoroughly covers all areas involved with the assassination, and its after effects. He gains access to the morgue at Bethesda Naval Hospital, an area denied to previous investigators, and speaks to people who are privy to conflicting evidence, which casts doubt on the 'best evidence' produced by the Warren Commission. He also finds conflicting evidence with the House Assassinations Committee, and sets the mind racing with various 'what ifs' and theories of cover up that, in all, tie up an amazing book that would take a large essay to review!
I can only suggest that if this subject interests you, you read this book, and then you too will have exceptional knowledge of this obvious conspiracy theory.

When Best Evidence was first published in 1980, it was widely ridiculed. The idea that the President's body was taken and worked on surreptitiously is inconceivable; preposterous. At least, it is until you read the book. Lifton uses not only the conventional evidence available, but also first hand interviews to determine that the body was not in the casket offloaded at Andrews Air Force base on the evening of November 22 1963.

Perhaps the best endorsement of this theory is that in the 1990s, the Assassination Records Review Board conducted interviews and collected evidence that supported Lifton's hypothesis. In fact, the ARRB uncovered even more evidence of misconduct and deception in the medical evidence. You can find out more about that by reading The Kennedy Autopsy by Jacob Hornberger and viewing the video series by ARRB analyst Doug Horne called Altered History on the FFF website.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Oct 2013
Format: Paperback
I was probably thirteen or so when I first came across this book in my local bookstore. Back then, I didn't know that there was any reason to question the fact that Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK; heck, I didn't even suspect that the American government would ever deliberately lie to the public. This book opened my eyes - and not just about the JFK assassination. It would take me a little while longer to learn to distrust every single thing the government tells me, but David Lifton definitely succeeded in convincing me that the truth about the JFK assassination was not to be found in the Warren Report. All these years later, Best Evidence remains a must-read for those searching for the truth about the events that took place in Dealey Plaza almost fifty years ago. As crowded as the field of books on this subject has grown, this book remains unique in a number of ways.

Lifton was one of the early Warren Report critics; the book was not published until 1980, but Lifton's research efforts began immediately after Life published frames from the Zapruder film. As a graduate student in physics, Lifton knew that a shot from behind would not have caused the violent "back and to the left" motion of President Kennedy's head following the moment of impact. That was the impetus of his work. It quickly became a passion that interrupted and eventually ended his graduate studies (it's pretty difficult to go through the 26 nonindexed volumes of evidence in the Warren Report while pursuing a graduate degree in physics). Unlike some researchers, he was never in this for the money; in fact, I don't know how he managed to support himself over the 15 years or so he devoted to this case.
