5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!!
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Book Worth Covering Up
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars A Book Worth Covering Up, 4 Feb 2010

This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (Paperback)
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and well structured. Very interesting., 12 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
like the links and offerings of more detailed literature on specific theories. put together in an easily digestible way. excellent topics for debating and learning more on preferred topics. Who would have guessed that so many u.s. agencies were considered a little shady??? lol. Read,digest,and read again. Loved it from start to finish. Well done Jon E. Lewis!. I'm off to investigate some more "gemstone" docs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Author is biased, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (Paperback)
He presents only fraction of the information available, then debunks everything. Many times the Official truth seems to be the only truth. This kind of book should only bring out the evidende and leave conclusions to the reader. Reader should be able to decide what is the truth.

Otherwise, the contents of the book are interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read!, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cover-ups, real and unreal., 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (Paperback)
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining, 3 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (Paperback)
As others have said, the subjects in question are given a failry short airing but it's a nice introduction to many of the topics, especially the more obscure ones. It's all entertaining enough as long as you don't take it too seriously, but the internet illuminati won't like the fact the author is happy to debunk where appropriate. If all you want is blinkered confirmation that every conspiracy you ever heard of is true, stick to trawling the web and don't let the facts spoil a good story. There are a handful of thought provoking items in there though, I guess it can't all be twaddle.

This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (Paperback)
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.
