Publisher's Summary

There's the Freedom of Information Act, and then there's Ventura's way. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bull, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate nonpartisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk listeners through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media. Among the cases discussed:

  • The CIA's top-secret program to control human behavior
  • Operation Northwoods: the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists
  • The discovery of a secret Afghan archive, information that never left the boardroom
  • Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak

What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura's research and commentary sheds new light on what they're not telling you---and why it matters.

    "Unlistenable"

    Really interested in this book but I'll have to get it in print, the narration is terrible almost robotic, I love listening to Jesse speak so was hoping he would be doing this himself, no such luck

    "this is soooome crazy shit!"

    Jesse isn't afraid to let you know what we already have assumed by the government's actions...it's corrupt and full of hypocrisy. Good book...a bit dry at times but overall very informative!

    "Good facts"

    This book has a lot of interesting facts, but at times it becomes very dry and boring. But over all a good book.

    "it was okay, felt like it should be read not audio"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    more ventura reading the thing!


    If you’ve listened to books by Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell before, how does this one compare?

    Dick russel is more compelling


    How could the performance have been better?

    more Jesse


    Do you think 63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    nah i had enough


    Any additional comments?

    if you have to say the word redacted more than 100 hundred times maybe its not a audiobook.

    "Imperative Read"

    History records no more gallant struggle than that of humanity against the truth.

    Ashleigh Brilliant

    Probably better in print version for visuals of documents.

    "Things I don't like knowing"

    Too much information I was totally angry with US government and what they did. the fact that there is documented evidence is crazy good. Loss of election and the manipulation of our Free or Democratic system is sicking. Very sad to know that the rich or that the financially affluent are in so powerful. I had been a supporter of Bush One and Two, now I feel like I got "played". Who is on our side?

    "Needs to come with a WARNING for this narrator"

    Needs to come with a WARNING for this narrator, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS NARRATOR WHILE DRIVING!!!!!!! My wife woke up and thought I was listening to her Kindle, he can't even pronounce words correctly, the computer voice for the W.O.P.P.E.R. war games computer was easier to understand...

    I like Jesse, this is not to berate his book, I just HATE the narrator....

    "get the hard copy"

    Great information, but I'd suggest getting the hard copy. The best thing about this one, as opposed to the conspiracy book, is that he includes actual documents to look at yourself. The paper copy is a good reference guide. But the information is still important.

    "hard to listen to"

    This is an audiobook that is probably better to read than listen to. The oft mentioned "redacted" and then George K. Wilson's monotone (almost mechanical or computer program) voice makes for a hard listen. The information is right on and topical but like I said its better to read it.
