Compelling case for each, super repetitive

The book makes a solid case for most if not all of the cases, citing multiple sources for each and covering many different facets of each case. However while laying out the facts from several different sources specifically on the Marilyn Monroe and JFK there is a large amount of repetitiveness. This can become quite tedious and sometimes unbearable. I found myself skipping through at least an hour of The Maryland Monroe story and 45 minutes of JFK. It was worth it though I learned many new things surrounding several of the events.

Great content, poorly written

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but with a warning that it is terribly repetitive. Other reviewers have pointed this out, but until I listened myself, I did not believe it could be that bad. The content however is of such great interest that I recommend it nonetheless.

What did you like best about this story?

Reveals many things that are important to know.

Amateurish and repetitive writing

What would have made Dead Wrong better?

An editor to weed out the instances where the same point is made over and over and over again. I'm not sure if this was bad writing or someone padding out a book. And then there's the overuse of the word "literally."

What was most disappointing about Richard Belzer and David Wayne ’s story?

They took interesting facts and wrote them in the most hacky way possible. Truly poor writing.

Really Good Content a Bit Repetitive...

This seems like a really well researched book. On alot of the topics I thought I knew most of the general facts, but this book had alot of little known details. I did find it repetitive. someone else might say thorough. There were times I had to check and make sure I hadn't accidently gone back in a chapter. I liked that they changed narrators for the different sections/chapters. There are chapters I wish there would have been a little more time dedicated to i.e. Fred Hampton. Overall, I enjoyed it.

My review

Too much repetition of the narrative. There should have been some discussion on the speculation of the motive for each of these murders.

A really interesting book

Thoroughly researched and full of compelling evidence. Having read a few “conspiracy theory” type books, I found this one particularly persuasive with facts and evidence I had not experienced before.

Definitely wrong.

I found the story repetitive, the same facts repeated several times, narrators reading was flat.
