Book Description

29 Jan 2008 Mammoth
The Assassination of JFK, 9/11, the Da Vinci Code, The Death of Diana, Men in Black, Pearl Harbor, The Illuminati, Protocols of Zion,Hess, The Bilderberg Group, New World Order, ElvisFluoridization, Martin Luther King’s murder, Opus Dei, The Gemstone Files, John Paul I, Dead Sea Scrolls, Lockerbie bombing, Black helicopters… In other words everything ‘they’ never wanted you to know and were afraid you might ask! Jon E. Lewis explores the 100 most terrifying cover-ups of all time, from the invention of Jesus’ divinity (pace the Da Vinci Code) to Bush’s and Blair’s real agenda in invading Iraq. Entertainingly written and closely documented, the book provides each cover-up with a plausibility rating. Uncover why the Titanic sank, ponder the sinister Vatican/Mafia network that plotted the assassination of liberal John Paul, find out why NASA ‘lost’ its files on Mars, read why no-one enters Area 51, and consider why medical supplies were already on site at Edgware Road before the 7/7 bombs detonated. Just because you are paranoid, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t out to conspire against you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to topics but too dismissive 8 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well worth a read as it brings up some possible coverups you might not have heard of. However, to dismiss 9-11 conspiracy in a short chapter was not wise - you'd need a library of books to attempt that and you'd probably change your mind.It does introduce some interesting conspiracies. Let's face it powerful people joining together secretly to further their own causes despite awful implications for other people or society in general and covering it up is not wild thinking - it's daring to look at the truth without preconceptions. I recommend Ian R Crane's work if you really want to delve into the rabbit hole but don't expect your world view to be as comfortable as before.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Book Worth Covering Up 4 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is very disapointing: superficial and poorly collated. If you are already familiar with the topics, there is nothing new and much omitted. If you are unfamiliar, many relevant pros and cons of each 'theory' are omitted e.g. the fascinating basis and detail of 'Moon Hoax' and 'Holocaust Denial' arguments. Some fun searching on the web easilly transcends the level and content assembled here. Particularly unclear is the 'score' ('alert level') for ?likelihood of authenticity, which is neither clearly explained or rationalised in each case. Nor is there any discussion or analysis of what constitutes a 'cover up' or 'conspiracy theory'. So the collection includes proven factual events ('Iran Contras') and the entirely theoretical (Nazi Moon Base, Corn Circles). Many of the suspected dirty deeds and false flags of recent foreign policy are omitted completely (Florida elections? Gulf of Tonkin? East Timors oil? etc) at the expense of rehashed and superficial regurgitations of popular 'conspiracy theory' favourites (Munroe, Diana, JFK etc).

An intelligent book that certainly makes you question the so called facts given by the government, don't believe everything you are told!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read! 21 Dec 2013
By Johnc
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recommend this book. More often than not there is sufficient detail but a few parts are a little overdone in my opinion. A good range of issues are discussed and the author approaches them from a neutral perspective. I'm glad to have this book in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!! 5 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Only but a few conspiracies appear to me to be rather farfetched however, the rest of those theories certainly do set the cogs of the mind rolling!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cover-ups, real and unreal. 4 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good book with a lot of information that I didn't recognise. Like the other books from this author a basic guide to learning what THEY are doing to us but also significantly sceptical. One of his stories involves a student falling down a hole at the Crystal Palace and finding a train carriage complete with dead Victorians. Whether the train exists I don't know but the named student certainly wasn't born within two years of when she was reported to be. Looks like fiction to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cover ups 30 Oct 2013
Just had a look in the 'Look inside' and looked at a few of the cover ups, under the 9/11 item he claims the first plane hit the North tower at 8:35am when infact it was 8:46am. If he got this wrong what else did he get wrong?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book but the writer was very cautious
it was a good read all in all but the writer was very cautious in some of the chapters. maybe because he's writing about cover ups, lol. but its worth a read.
