  • Hear No Evil: Scientific Analysis of the Forensic Evidence in the Kennedy Assassination

    Story

    Groundbreaking scientific analysis that breaks the JFK assassination wide open! Did a shot from the "grassy knoll" kill President Kennedy? If so, was Oswald part of a conspiracy or an innocent patsy? Why have scientific experts who examined the evidence failed to put such questions to rest? In 2001, scientist Dr. Donald Byron Thomas published a peer-reviewed article that revived the debate over the finding by the House Select Committee on Assassinations that there had indeed been a shot from the grassy knoll, caught on a police dictabelt recording.

    Parrish says: "Most Comprehensive Assassination Book To Date"

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hear No Evil?

    the facts... Golden facts that very few other books have. I enjoyed the fact that this book is all science and no speculation.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There was much more good technology in 1978 than I had thought...


    Any additional comments?

    A VERY good book

    Drawing on exclusive interviews with dozens of Paperclip family members, colleagues, and interrogators, and with access to German archival documents (including papers made available to her by direct descendants of the Third Reich's ranking members), files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and lost dossiers discovered at the National Archives and Harvard University, Annie Jacobsen follows more than a dozen German scientists through their postwar lives and into one of the most complex, nefarious, and jealously guarded government secrets of the 20th century.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Operation Paperclip to be better than the print version?

    This book will be read in all history classes soon

    I want to keep this short... This book is an amazing compendium of a subject that has never before been truly explored. Annie's research is amazing: aka you will be shocked and amazed and what you learn!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The frankness of the narrative.


    What does Annie Jacobsen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration really emphasizes the book's main points!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last part, when she lists all the crimes/criminals... one by one... methodically


    Any additional comments?

    just amazing!

    Here is a gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi hierarchy in World War II. The Nuremberg Trial brilliantly recreates the trial proceedings and offers a reasoned, often profound examination of the processes that created international law. From the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering, each participant is vividly drawn.

    Sandy says: "A really interesting listen"

    What didn’t you like about Ralph Cosham’s performance?

    He lisps and sputters his way through his reading...

  • Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    A User says: "Reality, always more interesting than fiction."
    "AMAZING and very very informative!"

    Would you listen to Area 51 again? Why?

    Are you a tech geek? an airplane fan? a UFO SKEPTIC? A nuclear bomb testing "fan"? A CIA history buff? Then this book is for you!

    I'm a self-described liberal who does not believe in conspiracy theories. BUT this book is one AMAZING piece of journalism, storytelling, history, culture, and wonder.

    I have listened to this books over 3 times, and it's amazing!
