The shear amount of knowledge, and depth in which each topic is covered is astounding. Phenomenal!

Terrific and terrifying at the same time. This edition was published a quarter of century ago but still firmly holds your attention.

I was very interested in the possible mind control of assassins, it's use in CIA or military circles and the possibility of it's use in Jonestown and Wako. These parts were interesting and appeared well researched. However I feel the author may have cast his net too wide and certain chapters involving were rambling, not that interesting and, to me, not convincing. The author presents everything as fact, there's no counter balance, anyone that disagrees with the author is part of the conspiracy, rather than just sceptics. Therefore it almost feels as if he is preaching to the converted.
There are some disturbing and unsettling descriptions of horrendous abuse. I believe the intention of many of these descriptions is to shock so one feels empathy with the victims. At times, this borders on sensationalism, but the descriptions serve a purpose.
The narration isn't the best. Mistakes are clearly made, the narrator repeats himself when he makes a mistake or reads something incorrectly- these errors have been left. This is something that could have been easily edited out, so along with that and the cheap looking cover - This doesn't come off as the most professional of productions. Also, some of the voices the narrator uses we're not just distracting, but baffling. Many of the women are quoted in a comically, bimbo-ish voice. Half way through the book, the narrator bizarrely decided to do impressions. He seems to be channeling Peter Sellers dodgy, Indian routine to play Siran Siran- this stops after a couple of chapters, thankfully.
A huge disappointment. For perverts interested in listening to power figures having weird sex with brainwashed people? Cannot recommend this book to anyone. What a waste of money.
