5.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Secret just got out
I had only read one of David Ickes books prior to this one, and that had been the Truth Vibrations, way back in about 1992 and to be honest although I had enjoyed the book I hadn't really regarded him in the same light as the other " Spiritual books " circulating around at the time. I had my second spiritual awakening in 1996 and have read everything I could...

3.0 out of 5 stars Certainly worth a read
If you only ever read one David Icke book this is the one you should read. A bit of a 'classic' now and the one that broke the reptile theory. Whether or not you believe all the reptile ideas is up to you but there is much more than that in the book and Icke certainly does his homework on the 'bigger picture'. Many of Icke's books have different levels, some of them quite...

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Reptile, Get Me Out of Here!!!, 30 Sep 2005
By 
Confuseius (Virtual Space) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
For a man with a message, David Icke doesn't make things easy for himself.

If this book has any short-comings other than Icke's painfully inexpert attempts at logical argument, it's the opening chapters - on the grounds of established scientific knowledge (hmmm - perhaps my dissent means I am a reptilian...?). Notwithstanding Icke's infuriating tendency to present conjecture as fact that he will the refer back to later into the book, stating that his research has "proven" these leaps to be true with no insight into what constitutes proof having being given, schoolboy science is the real issue here.

Be it monatomic gold, "the lower fourth dimension", reptiles living inside a hollow earth, or reptilian DNA (which surely would have been detected by now - unless Craig Venter is one of the Illuminati??), Icke's book suffers hugely from bad editorial decisions as much as the poor presentation of argument and a paucity of scientific rigour.

"The Biggest Secret" is not, however, "the biggest laugh", and there are reasons to praise: if you can make it through the relatively painful first two chapters of this book, however, it does - perhaps surprisingly - become increasingly alluring. when Icke gets on to the linguistic, symbological and religious strands of his argument, he is on much steadier footing. The middle chapters present some utterly fascinating material, that is so dense and rich that regular breaks to mull it over are required. "The Biggest Secret" deserves strong marks for these sections.

It's a great shame though that these more attractive arguments only come AFTER the more, erm, alienating opening. If Icke could team up with someone more versed in rhetoric, or simply call upon a decent (and open-minded) editor, this book could well have been truly astounding. A simpler alternative could have been to present the reptilian material towards the end of the book - once the reader has been, perhaps, "softened-up".

Alas we are left with a work that, despite showing signs of having been wonderfully, exquisitely researched, is greatly blemished by amateurism. It could - and should - have been so much better. Nonetheless, a very thought-provoking read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wake up call to humanity - THE book for the "millennium", 12 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
All those who take great delight in making fun and sneering at people like David Icke may like to consider (if they can drag themselves out of their manufactured comfort zones)that even if one percent of this book is true means that humanity has been sold a load of bull to say the least over the last few thousand years. In fact if you want to talk probability, I would say that it is more likely that 1% of this book is true than to claim that 100% of it is absolute rubbish, as many kneejerk reactions claim.
As this book points out, people today face "make your mind up time". Either continue to live in a manufactured world view as glorified robots, or wake up to who we really are. Icke differentiates himself from many "New Age" writers in that he offers a no-nonsense analysis of what is really happening. No reference to saving humanity, putting your faith in some god or entity or guru - the answer according to Icke is that we are all powerful beings who have the power to control our own destiny. What has happened is that people have given their power away - the "what are THEY going to do about it" mentality, and so those imbalanced people/beings who seek to control the world are able to manipulate the world in the way they want. Until now.
Icke's view is that rather than sit around lighting candles, channeling some guru, waiting for some saviour or other to arrive in a spaceship, etc. the true challenge in the coming years is a simple yet demanding task - to accept total responsibility for everything in our lives and allow others to do the same with love, even if we disagree with what they choose to do and who they choose to be.
I think David Icke in publishing this book has demonstrated first hand what we all need to do, that is to have the courage of our convictions and not worry about what people will think, say and do in reaction to us. As he says, if you've got a problem with me, that is exactly what it is - YOU'VE got the problem. Once humanity escapes this thought prison of its own creation no-one, not even the reptiles, Billy Clinton, et al will be able to do anything about it. Only then will be truly free - and it's so simple.
The main premise - The Biggest Secret no less, is that a group of alien/human hybrid bloodlines stretching back over thousands of years has controlled the Earth and still does today. He reveals that 33 out of 42 US presidents are related to either Alfred the Great and Charlemagne, and that in every US presidential election the winner has been the candidate with the most Royal genes! The bloodline of George Bush, the Royal Family and most world politicians and royalty can be traced back to the Pharoahs and beyond - they are all the same tribe.
This is a well-researched, challenging and riveting read that will change your world view forever. His style is never preaching, very down to earth and at times it is immensely funny, acknowledging that a lot of the book's claims will on the surface be seen as completely crazy. Read this book with an open mind - some things you will accept, some things you won't. Just don't dismiss all of it because of your kneejerk reaction to one or two of the ideas - and maybe just consider the saying "the truth is often stranger than fiction."
I heartily recommend this book - everyone on this planet who has ever wondered why things are as they are needs to read it, and as a result may never look at the world in the same way again, and perhaps, just perhaps, decide to change it.
Let's hope so!

5.0 out of 5 stars EK Diophanti: This Book is a real eye opener, 12 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
I have just finished reading the fruits of David's research and from my own experiences all I can say is that if you care about humanity you should give some room to your intelligence and use this unusual material as a starting point for you own investigation. If you have some logic handy, after reading this book you will feel empowered and not indoctrinated. Remember some reptilian associates will certainly post comments here with the purpose to discourage your desire to learn and know. That's at least my opinion. I have read a good command of books on the market in this particular category and I believe that David is daring and caring enough to express in a very loud mode what others have been whispering so far. As a consequence I believe he deserves some attention, support and encouragement.
---Let us unite in the name of our thinking ability as a race ( the human race)to rediscover and repossess ourselves for a better future--------

4.0 out of 5 stars DAVID ICKE, 3 Nov 2011
By 
M. L. Shannon (bristol england) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
A good book, although the title is somewhat sensationalized,and as to whether it changed the world the jury is still out, which is more the pity. David's take on what is really going on is pretty solid and his sources for his imformation has been meticulously researched.."Who is really ruling us", the author takes us back centuries to find the origins of the secret society who have manipulated the general population of the world, the biggest con surrounding man is the money he earns and the greatest conspiracy concerning wealth and the worlds financial institutions, also with their knowledge on the esoteric and occult, mankind has been enslaved, we are here to serve them, when in reality it should be our leaders serving us, the ones who elected them,[or did we, ?] although the information contained about the reptiles initially put me off from finishing it, that was until i found other sources who backed up his claims i then reread it and was able to appreciate the work that has gone into it..The chapters he wrote about the Princess Diana death and the conspiracy surrounding the untimely demise of Her and Dodi in the much publisised crash in Paris are also interesting, he researched the facts splendidly, although i have my opinions on this which i shall reserve them on this occasion, Davids ability to engage the reader into discovering the truth for himself is spot on and this book goes a long way to pointing you in the right direction..Look beyond the title and your eyes will be truly opened, there is no going back..

5.0 out of 5 stars Give this guy some respect., 22 April 2001
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
Despite unrelenting ridicule and scorn, this guy keeps bouncing back like a spiritual Roberto Duran. If one tenth of this information is true, then the reality of the world we live in is truly sickening. If you have ever wondered why politicians are indifferent to public opinion, and promote policies which perpetuate misery, poverty and conflict, then read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but shocking - NOT for the faint hearted., 28 Dec 2004
By 
Greg (Dundee, Scotland United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
Despite the picture the press have painted of Icke, this book and his previous, "And the Truth shall set you free", prove that this man is quite sane, in fact probably more so than the rest of us!!
Like "And the Truth...", this book is very well researched and convincingly presents a case for the gradual, secret takeover of the planet by extraterrestial, or more accurately inter-dimensional, beings. It presents a radical - and I mean radical - rewriting of history that connects seemingly unconnected events and demystifies many "mysteries" that official history and science fail to, or have no wish to, address, let alone explain.
A word of warning - this is a heavy read. I recommend that one read it slowly and think carefuly about the material. Open-mindedness is essencial and also a healthy dose of scepticism. Chapters 15 and 16 in particular, which describe the worldwide malpractice of ritual murder, child abuse and mind control were very, very harrowing to read. But I urge the pontential reader to please read about this information, because all the evidence the author presents indicates that these kinds of things are happening, and it MUST be made public. If it isn't, I really do fear for the future of the human race and life on this planet.
Another crucial area of investigation by the author is the illusory nature of reality, which is something Buddhists and mystics have disscussed for thousands of years. I also urge people to consider this material. Icke goes into further detail of this in "Tales from the Time Loop" which I also thoroughly recommend.
Overall, this book does indeed have the potential to change one's world veiw and the world itself. For more detail on the conspiracy particular to the 20th century, I recommend "And the Truth Shall Set You Free". Updated research can be found in "Children of the Matrix".

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD, 16 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
It all sounds too sensational to believe, but Icke puts forward a pretty convincing case,with a wealth of evidence that not even the most closed-minded people could disregard.
This book should come with a warning: 'Read this and you will never see things in the same way again.'...

4.0 out of 5 stars challenge your conditioning!, 7 Oct 2006
By 
onewave (channel islands) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
OK the book is not perfect, Icke's style flows much better in his more recent books, but this book is a jewel anyway. He will challenge your ideas but that's what books are supposed to do. You won't look at Christianity the same way after reading this book, or the Royals, or many of the things which are put into our minds when we are children never to be questioned again. The difficult chapters about child murder rituals etc make you wish you hadn't started reading the book. But if enough people wake-up I also believe we can stop this! The book ends with a fantastic chapter on how we can truly trascend this global nightmare, and find freedom in our own lives and help to free others as well.

A book written by a brave man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the most important book you will ever buy or read!, 28 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
This is a MUST READ book. If you are a memmber of the illiterati, take a reading course just to read it! It's that good/important/relevant to every aspect of your reality.

I remember when David Icke first caught the attention of the media with his presentations, everybody seemed to have an opinion but no-one could actually give me one example of something that Mr. Icke had said in context or, in many cases, at all.

Read this book and have your eyes opened. If you've already read some other Icke books, fret not there is the WEALTH of information here that you've come to expect from such a committed researcher.

Recommended without reservation.
