    My book reviews, except for fiction, will mostly be about the information value of a book.

    "Too much inflammatory language"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes.

    For me, the main issue raised by Dr. Crenshaw is the actual wounds to President Kennedy’s body. Dr. Crenshaw’s eyewitness account needs unqualified corroboration from the other doctors and nurses in the operating room at the time. Clear, concise, and unqualified corroboration will place the Bethesda autopsy results in doubt and require an investigation. Unfortunately, as Dr. Crenshaw pointed out, and there is a historical record of, the Federal, State, and Local law enforcement authorities allowed contamination of the crime scene, pollution of the physical evidence, and improper handling of the victim (President Kennedy). Because of these egregious mistakes we will probably never know the truth of what happened.I do think the Warren Commission was proving a theory they had already decided was fact.


    Would you recommend JFK Has Been Shot to your friends? Why or why not?

    I do recommend this book. The reader (or listener) just needs to ignore the inflammatory language and listen for the issue and testimony.


    Which character – as performed by James C. Lewis – was your favorite?

    Unimportant and irrelevant.


    Was JFK Has Been Shot worth the listening time?

    Yes. Fortunately, it was mostly brief and too the point.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth reading
