In 1978, a tragedy occurred in the Guyanese jungle in South America: 918 American citizens allegedly took their own lives and Congressman Leo J. Ryan became the first U.S. Congressman killed in the line of duty.
The life and death of Jim Jones and his followers in Jonestown still mystifies people to this day. "Drinking the Kool-Aid" became a famous metaphor for holding an unquestioned belief without critical examination. But was there a far more sinister play at hand than the official story revealed?
This audiobook is a complete history of Jim Jones and People's Temple, with further analysis on what might have been the real cause of this tragedy. In the words of Oliver Stone, in regard to historical events, "What really happened is always subject to examination."

The author does a credible job with a convoluted and mysterious subject. Very creepy overall.
Hard to separate the fact from conjecture, though. I'm more confused than ever.
