Publisher's Summary

More and more people are beginning to realize that we are being manipulated and lied to. We are denied access to secrets that shouldn’t be secrets. Our politicians obfuscate, deny, and outright lie. No one knows whom to trust. The nightly news is being replaced by carefully orchestrated propaganda. Our iPhones are monitored, as are our laptops and our landlines. As for social media, that too is ripe for spying by men in black suits. No wonder, then, that the last few years have seen an incredible rise in conspiracy theories about deceptions and cover-ups. They range from the controversial to the shocking and from the nightmarish to the downright terrifying. 

From the dark agendas to restrict our access to the Internet and even ban books to suppressing cancer cures to ensure the pharmaceutical industry continues to reap gigantic profits and the murder of politicians, scientists, world leaders, and even Princess Diana in the name of national security, this book reveals dozens of nefarious conspiracies, plots, hidden agendas, and betrayals.

One more thing.

He forgot to mention the part about the agency drugging civilians into incoherency, keeping them in such a state where they are unable to perform their work duties or perform well in the classroom. Feel free to contact me if you wish to .append your book with the story.

An encyclopedia of conspiracies

Very well written and laid out book. Many interesting facts about conspiracies, some of which I had heard of, but knew nothing about. Only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because many of the chapters are as if long blog posts and giving explations of things previously covered in the book in great detail.

Unexplained Controversies

Covers controversial stories from disappearances, to unexplained deaths, to events with alternative explanations.

One fact remains, their are forces that which to stifle knowledge, reading material, even ideas. Extraordinarily thought provoking.

You must at least listen to other sides.

No matter what you believe you must at leat hear the argument for it to have an intelligent debate. all theories have a grain of truth. . thanks to the author.

Bad. Really, bad.

Even if you suspend disbelief, it is still bad. I love a good mystery and am not above thinking that there are things we just can't explain currently. But, this book is just plain nutty. I could not finish it. It is clearly geared towards the really "out there" crowd.

Well written and reader has a good voice

I’ve been trying to find books like this that are detailed and sights things well, this is very convincing read and he is very objective, he reviews stories on conspiracy and it’s very through on subject matter.

Interesting but Dogmatic

The author conveniently overlooks and downplays Col Philip J Corso’s eyewitness account in the “Day After Roswell” and the subsequent tech found at Roswell. Tech that was funneled into the military industrial complex through existing contracts.
Furthermore, Corso thoroughly explains the intentional disinformation and misinformation campaign surrounding Roswell by the newly formed CIA the USAF in 1947.

In addition, the author is myopic and dogmatic in his point of view suggesting that the UFO phenomenon needs to have a single explanation. His brief history of leaves out many important details. Disappointed.

I suggest read the DAY AFTER ROSWELL instead. The information is light years more thorough and the performance is much better as well.

Bananas.

Aliens, Mothman, Bigfoot, aliens, and more aliens. A very incomplete guide to government conspiracies that don't involve aliens. The book opens with aliens and the author weaves that topic into everything after. Could JFK have been murdered for what he knew about aliens? What about Marilyn Monroe? Long story short..NO. It's worse than bananas, it's misinformation deliberately meant to sow confusion.

Worth a listen.

A very interesting and, at times harrowing read/listen. The narrator is easy to listen to and the book leaves you to pretty much make your own mind up regarding the subjects raised.

A bit of an eye roll

Firstly, I like Nick Redfern and have read loads of his books, and listened to him on countless podcasts. This book was a bit of an eye roll for the main part though - I don’t know if I’ve lost my patience for the whole conspiracy thing given what’s gone on in recent years in America (and increasingly the UK) but a lot of this was either so ridiculous I ended up skipping the chapter (the queen is a lizard) or I’ve heard the stories a hundred times before. It’s mildly entertaining as background noise but I did find myself zoning out a lot. Would probably hunt down other Nick Redfern books instead.

US Anti-Intellectualism

This author gives a reasonable over view of the utter stupidity of US anti intellectualism - even failing to comprehend that whilst criticising key aspects of it - he is also a product of it who cannot help expressing familiar and well worn tropes. Anti-China racism is present, as is a hero worshipping of the idiocy that is the work of George Orwell - the ex-imperialist police officer and hater of genuine Socialism! Furthermore, the US is the only country ever to have used nuclear weapons and a recent report suggests that the US military has killed between 20-30 million people around the world since 1945! The US is not the eternal victim but the eternal bully!

A Fun Audiobook to listen too

Being a real dyed in the wool sci/fi fan,you do sometimes wish it was real,which is where real life mysteries come in,as far out as the many claims made in this book are,it is fun to imagine,WHAT IF THEY ARE REAL ?
I'm sure none of them are true,but it sure is fun thinking they might be

and one thing that really annoys me ,is when the Narrator mispronounces words,you'd think someone would tell the guy he's saying that word wrong,but they don't and I'm happy to say the Narrator was on the whole very good,and recorded under A1 conditions,some audiobooks sound like they were recorded in the toilet,but this one is full studio quality work,Nice Job Guys
