Publisher's Summary

From the Report's original 1964 Introduction:
"President Lyndon B. Johnson, by Executive Order No. 11130 dated November 29, 1963, created this Commission to investigate the assassination on November 22, 1963, of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States. The President directed the Commission to evaluate all the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination and the subsequent killing of the alleged assassin and to report its findings and conclusions to him.
"The subject of the Commission's inquiry was a chain of events which saddened and shocked the people of the United States and of the world. The assassination of President Kennedy and the simultaneous wounding of John B. Connally, Jr., Governor of Texas, had been followed within an hour by the slaying of Patrolman J. D. Tippit of the Dallas Police Department. In the United States and abroad, these events evoked universal demands for an explanation....
"With this report the Commission is submitting the complete testimony of all the witnesses who appeared before the Commission or gave sworn depositions or affidavits, the accompanying documentary exhibits, and other investigative materials which are relied upon in this report."

Best place to start to study the assassination

Very good logical analysis of the assassination. It does gloss over some questionable areas of interest but in general is 10x more honest about what really happened than practically any conspiracy book you can pick up.

The right conclusion.

Would you listen to The Warren Commission Report again? Why?

I would in case I missed some parts of it I thought might be important.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all excellent.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The man doing the intro I have, in top form here. The other ones, I hadn't.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'd already heard versions of the report, so no big reaction really.

Any additional comments?
