The specificity and rationality of this book make it compelling and convincing. I was in elementary school when JFK was assassinated and thought I had dealt with it, but this brought back my own memories of that day and the long, long weekend following it. Thank you, Mr. Bugliosi, for your detailed verbal portrait. It honors the memories of both the president and Officer Tippett, and those whose lives were affected by these senseless murders, by refuting and de-romanticizing the emotionalism of the conspiracy theorists.
As a witness to the events of November 22, 1963 and the conspiracy nonsense that followed, I was pleasantly surprised by Mr. Bugliosi's book. Thoughfully presenting the evidence of the real crime, Oswald's assassination of the President, a rationale person would be persuaded of Oswald's sole complicity in the foul deed. Mr. Bugliosi has utilized the Warren Commision's and the House Committee on Assasination's thorough reports to de-bunk the conspiracy arguments one by one. A must read.
Brilliant. A Great listen. Now, could Mr. B. please turn his use of insight and logic on the living tools who now push a 9/11 coverup? I'd be quite happy if he did.
This book was one of the best I've downloaded. The narration was the best. I highly recommend this book. It great contains great information.
Bugliosi gives an unemotional logical chronology of the events of November 22-24 1963 with chilling effect. His analysis left this reader very comfortable with the fact that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assasin of President Kennedy. The last half of the book effectively debunks the conspiracy theories. I have read a great number of books on this subject over the last 40 years and found this one to be one of the best. Highly recommended.
I came into this book as one of those who believed a few of the elements supported by those who believed a conspiracy existed to assassainate President Kennedy, yet with an open mind.
Mr. Bugliosi, one of America's most reputable prosecutors, has written the definitive book about the events of November 22, 1963, what led up to it, and the aftermath. Edward Herrmann's narration brings the events into the present, as if they happened only recently.
Bugliosi's attention to detail and ensuring all the details were covered and described, including the Warren Commission and the two subsequent Congressional select committees, has once and for all shot down *every* theory advanced by the "conspiracy buffs", including Jim Garrison (whose book "On The Trail of the Assassains" was the basis for the Oliver Stone film "JFK"). He has, indeed, reclaimed history.
For those who still believe a conspiracy was involved, read/listen to this book. You *will* change your mind. I did. Case closed: Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, and was the sole gunman.
I seriously enjoyed reading this very detailed
account of the events surrounding President Kennedy's assination. This is extremely detailed
and aimed at debunking conspiracy theorists...which it does. I would urge anyone
who is interested in this topic to listen to this book. Great Job Mr. Bugliosi..loved "Helter
Skelter"...read it three times..and this one was great too.
While the audiobook is great, it is horribly abridged. However this is understandable considering the print version is well over 1600 pages not including the CD-Rom that is included. Having said this, if you want to understand HOW we know Oswald acted alone & HOW we know there was no conspiracy. This audiobook is for you. The author does a wonderful job laying out a case against Oswald while also disproving the foundation of any and all conspiracies. After reading this book several years ago & recently re-reading via audiobook, I have a much better understanding of how & why the conspiracy culture grew out of this seemingly complex but ultimately simple case. This book does not address all conspiracy theories out there, that would be impossible. What it does do is knock the legs out from under the bases on which the variety of conspiracy theories are based.
His case is grounded in both physical evidence & reason.
I have not but I thought Edward did a wonderful job.
No, but I really only do that with fiction
