This review is from: Human Race Get Off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More (Paperback)
I received this book a week or so ago and am about 80 per cent of the way through it. I read The Biggest Secret a good few years ago and was impressed by David Icke's attention to detail and all the research that he put into that book. And so I could say I am definitely a fan of Mr Icke. He is a gifted and persuasive communicator (there is no doubt about that) and in this book he absolutely bombards you with facts and figures and illustrations to "hammer" home his point. So much so that sometimes my mind gets close to being overloaded. At that point I stop and take a rest, but am inevitably drawn back pretty soon to read on. All my life I have avidly read books in a diverse range of subjects, a lot of them related to the subjects Mr Icke writes about. I consider myself to have an open mind. I am happy to accept anything (no matter how bizarre) that is the best possible explanation for events. Mr Icke is a brilliantly original thinker and theorist and manages to synthesise an incredible amount of diverse, and often conflicting information, into his clear explanation of his "theory of everything". He rarely (if at all) trips himself up because when he talks about the subjects I am familiar with his arguments always are consistent with what I already know (or have read). And so I think he is onto something, for sure. However, it does cross my mind that, even although I believe he is genuine and highly intelligent, and I like him, it might be the case that he is on a runaway train of his own ideas and can't get off now because it is too late because of his commitment to his cause. I don't really doubt him but sometimes I think that he may just be very intelligent and so able to persuade people like me easily because I'm not as bright as he is (incidentally I am qualified in meteorology, electricity, sociology, political philosophy, psychology and philosophy, and many more subjects, at degree-level). And so maybe someone can help me here. Is David Icke one of the most brilliant thinkers of all time (the man who has sussed out "everything") or is he simply unhinged? I wish I knew the answer!
