I was facinated by ...and the truth shall set you free, somewhat dissapointed by The biggest secret, but I do believe Icke got back on his feet with this book, it is up to his usual reasearch standard. It's worth reading simply for the comparative religious and archaeological references. However, to accept this final conclusion is no small matter...It *matters* what we believe these days, people! So I recommend the book, but suggest you do your own research before you buy into the whole 'shapshifting lizards rule our planet'. In a more abstract sense, there are merits to a similar idea, but from what I've researched it's not as described in this book. Additionally, I think David has gotten too caught in the New Age movement, there are traps to get you to go back to sleep in that movement too, and I was sorry to see this excellent writer fall into one. In short : definately worth reading, but read critically!
