This review is from: The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World (Paperback)
This loses one star as, obviously, Icke is mad as a hatter and his theories are blatant nonsense. It gets four stars because it is a hugely entertaining read. Who cares if it's just a cobbled together collection of other people's conspiracy theories, totally unresearched and selected so as to fit Icke's vision? It's a good laugh, try not to take it seriously, even if Icke does.

So you're saying it's not a cobbled together selection of conspiracy theories blatantly stolen from other writers? There are plenty of conspiracy writers who are complaining that Icke is stealing their ideas/research without any credit to them at all. As one example of a lack of any research, he clearly doesn't know that Frater Perdurabo and Crowley are the same person. Simply opening the dust cover of any Crowley book (or leafing through any biography) would tell you that immediately and clearly Icke hasn't bothered. His out of context quotes from the Perdurabo works make it obvious that has never read any of the rest of the material or comments on it, merely chosen a famous quote and taken it literally.
However interesting what he writes may be, it's fairly clear that he is cherry picking his ideas and bundling them together with little or no critical evaluation. I'm not sure why you're getting so defensive, I like the book.
