Jim Marrs book The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy is an award-winning journalist and a shining example of the great lost art of factual journalism in America. He honestly deserves to win a Pulitzer prize for this latest book -- it's really that good. It's also extremely well researched and cited.
This isn't some loose compilation of conjecture or conspiracy rantings; rather, it's a coherent, well-organized presentation of the shocking details of how the world really operates (it's far stranger than you might suppose).
The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy touches on all the big issues and industries of our modern world: War and defense contractors, Big Pharma and the FDA, the fluoridation of the water supply, GMOs and the genetic pollution of our planet, the criminal banking industry and the Federal Reserve, stolen elections, corrupt politicians and a whole lot more.
The title of the book is actually a bit of a misnomer. Jim's original title was going to be "Zombie Nation" which I think is actually a better title because the book talks about "zombie banks" that are steeped in debt, "zombie politicians" who are totally controlled by a corporate agenda, and even "zombie people" who are drugged up on psychiatric medications. If you want to know why the world seems to crazy on the outside, just read this book and you'll gain a keen understanding of the zombification of modern civilization and why it's taking place.
Highly recommended. This book is being given the "Book of the Year Award" from NaturalNews.
Narrator Marc Thompson is unbelievably good at character voices. He's the Jedi master of Star Wars voices. His performance, combined with superb sound effects and background audio textures, makes this a vivid, heart-pounding performance.
A definite "can't miss" for all Star Wars fans. Possibly the best audio book you've ever heard in the series.
The story in this novel may be solid, but it's difficult to even find it amid all the vulgar language, the cursing, and the imbalanced preoccupation with sex scenes. It's so distracting that I couldn't get past the first hour. A huge disappointment in what looked to be a potentially promising novel.
The title of this book sounds promising, but inside the cover, The Happiness Hypothesis reads almost like an infomercial for SSRI drugs and mind-altering pharmaceuticals. In one section, the author claims that antidepressant drugs can allow you to "redeem yourself" as if these dangerous chemicals were somehow a pharmaceutical savior.
The author also incorrectly claims that antidepressants have been proven to be more effective than placebo. The scientific research actually shows that SSRI drugs are no better than placebo whatsoever, and that in fact mind-body medicine is far stronger than brain-altering patented chemicals.
This book proposes that the three pathways to happiness are: 1) Meditation, 2) Cognitive therapy and 3) SSRI antidepressant drugs. Nowhere in the book does the author mention the important fact that SSRI drugs have been scientifically linked to thoughts of suicide or violence against others, or that many of the school shootings in U.S. history were committed by children on prescription antidepressant drugs.
If that's the Happiness Hypothesis, I'll take a different theory, thank you.
