Extremely thought provoking,shocking and revealing. You must listen this audio book. Your prospective
of how our government handles crucial governing from political decisions to investigative inquiries will never be the same. Thanks Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell job well done,and i hope more to come.

Not your typical "conspiracy" type book. Actually well presented and tells truths that most Americans do not know but should.
I lived in MN when Jesse was elected governor. I always thought he had run just to raise the ratings of his radio program and thought he was just as surprised as the media when he actually won. Though he ran as an Independent, in office he acted more like a Republican than he comes across as in this book. If he had acted according to the attitudes he presents here, he would have been begged to governor again. Anyhow, he presents some very interesting facts here that every American should know. For instance, did you know that John Wilkes Booth was not a "lone assassin" when he shot Lincoln? It is known that he was part of a conspiracy and was part of a group that attempted other assassinations that same night, but our history books keep telling the same story over and over. I won't spoil it by telling you some of the more interesting things Jesse reveals. You need to listen for yourself, decide for yourself. You need to be informed -- and if the media won't tell you, maybe you'll let Jesse tell you.

Loved this. I admire jesse ventura. He says what he thinks and if yoi dont like it he is not bothered.
Some of the theories are sceptical but some really makes you think. Vary scary if true. Specially the MK Ultra mind control bit.

I really enjoyed this audio-book. Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have done some thorough research to present some interesting arguments for a number of conspiracies throughout American history.
The great thing about this book is that they try to avoid the sensationalism associated with the word 'conspiracy' by providing a lucide definition of what they mean by conspiracy - forget aliens and faked moonlanding claims.
Some of the conspiracies discussed are historically factual, and the bulk of Ventura's argument on this account is that they haven't been discussed in the teaching of modern history and as such we fail to learn from them or understand how different institutions have interacted and reacted with each other historically.
Other conspiracies are still contended but some compelling arguments are put forward for them. Some delved into may seem like a bit of a stretch, but even then it is intriguing listening to the manner in which Ventura argues for them.
