Recommends it for: victims of mind control, reptiles
Before I read this book, I had no idea that the world is ruled by the descendants of evil alien reptiles who shape-shift between their reptilian and human forms. But thanks to this astoundingly well-annotated compilation of historical, anthropological, and extraterrestrial research, I now know the horrible truth.

Are there conspiracies? Of course, there are. Royal families and despots have conspired to stay in power for millenniums. The wealthy and Wall Street conspire to get rich. Politicians and lobbyists conspire to fill their own greed. Occupy Wall Street's motto "We are the 99%" illustrate that very struggle going on every day.

Then there are Conspiracies with a capital "C". These are the ones that involve "they". "They" are the few and mysterious game-players that are behind every event and every go

Basically a chronological encyclopedia of tinfoil-hatism, this one weaves together most of the more famous conspiracisms into a grand narrative, wherein the transdimensional telepathic reptilian villains of Mr. Icke's musings have coordinated on Earth from the time of ancient Egypt to the present, working through various covert mechanisms. Marxism, for instance, was a tool of the aliens, if I recall correctly.

It's plenty clever, with tidy interpretations of religion, drawn from free thinker writ

This is my third Icke book. It is perhaps the one containing the most unpleasant i.e. horrendous material - revelations of satanism, child sacrifices, other child abuse and even more horrible things, if you can imagine this. Not that these matters weren't discussed in the other books, but the revelations in the present book felt the most horrific. (Key words: horrendous, horrible and horrific).

My further complaint is that practically every famous and powerful person either contemporary or living

For me, this book was the single most influential book I've ever read. It shattered my reality tunnel and I'm still trying to pick up the pieces. With topics beyond the typical conspiracy fare aligned with the standard conspiracy fare, at its heart is a truth I have come to find is true. Yet I have not come close to building up the courage to get past my own mind prison to truly embrace it: "You create your own reality."

I have read several of Icke's books. (I recommend "I Am Me, I Am Free") I saw him lecture in 2003. Dynamic speaker and researcher. His books are packed with information on who really runs the world. There's alot to digest in this particular book. Parts of it are hard to digest, but for the most part it tells it like it is.

First of all, Icke isn't a religious man. Not by any means.

But he is a man who knows how the world really works.

The Biggest Secret is literally the book that will change the world. In it, in exact detail, David Icke reveals that the world we know is but a sham, a mere figment of the media and the patriarchy/The Illuminati's imagination.

He rips apart numerous myths in his book. For instance he details how satanists still go about their business, untouched by efforts to destroy them in the 1990s.

I can't, in good conscience, rate this more than one star. But the book was, honestly, a joy. As a guy who loves The X-Files, who has a fascination with esoterica and general weirdness, I found this book thoroughly enjoyable; it is an encyclopedic amalgam of ancient mythology, esoterica, new age babble, pop psychology, and every conspiracy theory known to human and reptile.

Some people contend that David Icke does not believe in his reptilian thesis. That David Icke is just a guy who figured out

What a challenge this book is! No matter what you think of the questions Icke raises or the sacred cows he sacrifices at his altar, it's compelling as hell. I especially love his humor.

Again, it's an entertaining book if you read it as a work of fiction. Icke's claims go far, far further than many of his contemporaries in the conspiracy theory world. The usual suspects are all covered (scret socteties, royal family, etc.), but with a scaly spin.

In the past I have always been much more of a meat and potatoes man when it comes to researching the new world order. You know, easily verified political and economic exposes of the globalist conspiracy. Researchers like Eustace Mullins and Gary Allen always were (and still are) at the top of my list. Lately I am becoming much more open to thinking outside the box with this stuff, so while at one time I went out of my way to discount what somebody like Icke would say, now I'm almost doing the op ...more

To anyone who is wondering why I even bothered to post a review here, I shall say merely this: I have never, ever let a month go by without thinking that there is no secret, open or not, more embarrassing and threatening to the entirety of the Western world than that people like David Icke, the sports-commentator-turned-professional-nutcase, can, during the most enlightened period in the history of mankind, command a large enough following to fill lecture halls wherever they go.

I had a passing interest in David Icke when he emerged with his 'spiritual awakening' in 1990, & tried to keep an open mind as his views expanded on various topics afterwards - many of which I found fascinating, always delighting in going 'against the grain' of popular thought and perception.
However, this fascination was to end (for me) with his rather bizarre & ludicrous revelations of human 'reptiles' (masquerading as shape-shifting public figures) during one of his TV documentaries...

Icke starts with the information that is presented at the beginning of Zeitgeist and then descends into paranoid/delusional ramblings- similar to the film, in my opinion. The initial information about the basis of world religions is fascinating really. The astrological basis for religious figures/events and the similarities of religions from all over the globe is startling and deserves investigation. I don't know if Icke nailed that with his alien origins explanation, but it is an interesting po ...more

This is seriously the best science-fiction (fantasy?) comedy book I've ever read. No, really. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy can go suck it. Terry Pratchett? Psh. This book is sidesplittingly hilarious, a tour-de-force of imagination. Reptilian overlords! Rothschilds! The Bushes! LSD! It reads almost like the insane ramblings of a fucking crazy person. A person I would actually be a bit scared to be in the same room as. A person who should be on large, large doses of clozapine. The author's ab ...more

this book is totally the most ridiculous and somehow still amazing conspiracy book that i have read so far. he claims -- and somewhat "proves" through amazing circumstantial evidence -- the following: hitler wasa rothschild jew, princess diana was murdered by the royal family, and all the presidents and people of power are actually reptilian shape-shifters from another dimension that are controlling our thoughts through radio waves and other mind control techniques. brilliant!

The Thruth is Out There.

As a Fox Mulder follower, I opened this book with an open mind, but Icke's "truths" shattered my mind.

For conspiracy theories, it's far far beyond Dan Brown level.

Hillarious, outrageous, and mind boggling, but I'm not sure about the truth... somewhere between believable and very-very unbelievable.

Well, I can't decide to put this book in fiction or nonfiction category, so I put it in mystery category.

This book is not for the feinthearted. None of his are. Most people would either not know what he is talking about or diregard his research and just cast him aside as a conspiracy theorists. Persevere and keep reading this man is intelligent and not a sci fi writer. He is a wake up world writer.
But if you want to know what is really going on and not the story we are fed by the media then David Icke is certainly an interesting perspective on what is going on.

Think this is the book that began the whole "Reptilian Agenda" stuff. Even if you choose to dismiss that - it's worth a read for all the other valuable things the book brings up. I know people who have said that this book has changed their lives - give it a go!
No matter how much of nutter I am, its reassuring to know there's somebody nuttier out there. Of course, now I'm a bit worried about owning my very own copy of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang....Special Edition to boot!

This book was barely worth reading. Icke's concepts are a long shot to put it lightly. This book has alot of new age and psuedo science. Dispite being entertaining, I thought this book was pretty horrible.

This was my first taste of David Icke, I have to say that some of the stuff is a bit out there, but then some of it is very plausible. Always good to keep an open mind and this book will make you think, which is always a good thing.

The book is an amalgamation of historical research and evidence to prove his point. That race can be found in old records (texts, symbols, illustratio

“When we give our minds and our responsibility away, we give our lives away. If enough of us do it, we give the world away and that is precisely what we have been doing throughout known human history. This is why the few have always controlled the masses. The only difference today is that the few are now manipulating the entire planet because of the globalisation of business, banking and communications. The foundation of that control has always been the same : keep the people in ignorance, fear and at war with themselves,.
