Pretty amazing stuff. Surely a must-read for anyone interested in the assassination of JFK. Even though it can be a relatively tedious read at times, and while I may not wholeheartedly agree with the conclusion that's reached in this book, it was a great read nevertheless.

u could save quite a bit of time and just read the 1st few pages of chapter one, but the author leaves nothing to chance packing in details to prove his point ... it is said that the "lone nut" theory has been an insult to the intelligence of the American public for 50 years and while I lack the intel to b insulted, I've no doubt that I now know the truth
Excellent book! I found it well written, insightful and very informative. Highly recommended if you are curious about the Kennedy assassination.

A lot of detail - if your into that - the perfect book. I found the book to be disjointed but still fairly interesting. I enjoyed " JFK has been shot" more due to its narrative style.
Well, THAT explains it.
