Summary

The Assassination of JFK, 9/11, The Da Vinci Code, The Death of Diana, Men in Black, Pearl Harbor, The Illuminati, Protocols of Zion, Hess, The Bilderberg Group, New World Order, Elvis Fluoridization, Martin Luther King's murder, Opus Dei, The Gemstone Files, John Paul I, Dead Sea Scrolls, Lockerbie bombing, Black helicopters...In other words everything 'they' never wanted you to know and were afraid you might ask!

Jon E. Lewis explores the 100 most terrifying cover-ups of all time, from the invention of Jesus' divinity (pace The Da Vinci Code) to Bush's and Blair's real agenda in invading Iraq. Entertainingly written and closely documented, the book provides each cover-up with a plausibility rating.

Uncover why the Titanic sank, ponder the sinister Vatican/Mafia network that plotted the assassination of liberal John Paul, find out why NASA 'lost' its files on Mars, read why no-one enters Area 51, and consider why medical supplies were already on site at Edgware Road before the 7/7 bombs detonated.

Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean that they aren't out to conspire against you.

Summary of every conspiracy you can think of

This book covers most major cover ups with a base summary of each of them, I've used this book mostly to find conspiracies I'm interested in with a hope to find an audiobook covering the specific conspiracies in more details.
The most popular conspiracies are near the start of the book and then has a lull around the 65 chapter mark mostly talking about assassinations of lesser known government types, it does pick up towards the end few chapters again.

it also has an alert system after every conspiracy saying how plausible each conspiracy is, I assume according to the author, though some of them where higher than I expected given the evidence presented in the book.

Fascinating

An easy-to-listen-to audio book which steps from one chapter to the next each time addressing a new conspiracy and weighing the evidence with a conclusion at the end of each.

Lots of new stuff here to get you teeth into.

EXTREMELY ANOYING SIREN!

The sirens that sound every 5 minutes is extremely unnecessary and extremely irritating, otherwise ok.

Nice compilation of stories.

What did you like most about The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups?

A great compilation but very annoying alarm sound after each one.

Any additional comments?

Would be really good if that annoying alarm sound was removed.

Why of why put a claxon in between each story!!!

So this is a decidely average book. It's perfect for playing in the car and having on in the background, waiting to hear about a cover up story you haven't heard of before. perfect for falling asleep to. HOWEVER, for some reason they put a ridiculous claxon on between each story "Whoop, Whoop Whoop clearance level 4!" WORST DECISION EVER. Goes from a relaxing listen to an annoying noise, like a mosquito locked in a tent with you. if you can get past the noise, it's an ok purchase that pretty much does what you expect.

Covering Up The Cover-Ups

Having listened to The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups I knew I had to write a review for both the beginner and the expert of conspiracy theories and facts. Let's begin with one for the serious Conspiracy Realists out there. Many will understand the compulsion of those involved in the business of global conspiracy to place hidden messages in plain site of the 'gullable human populace'. Within 5 seconds of revisiting the details of this book on the review page, an anagram of the Author's name literally jumped out of the page. It would be remiss of me not to include this in the review. Jon E. Lewis (the inclusion of an initial is often a clue to the use of an anagram) becomes 'No Jew Lies'. For the 'Coincidence Theorists' out there, of course, it's once more just a coincidence. I am neither agreeing or disagreeing with such an analysis, but for a book about conspiracies, this 'coincidence' is obviously important to include in any review.

I have to say that if you are new to conspiracies - and even if you are an old hand - this book is a good 'Conspiracy 101' summary of basic facts pertaining to basic conspiracies. However, as far as discovering what is a conspiracy fact and what is a conspiracy fiction, look to the experts (all those who are named in a ridiculing way within the text). At first, I was willing to give the author the benefit of the doubt, but it soon became clear that this book is an extreme partisan political book at best, and at worst, a text-book orchestrated cover-up of the true crimes against humanity by the elites.

The author clearly shows extreme bias against Right wing politics. For disclosure purposes, I am a vegan pacifist, so I hardly fit into that camp. He also tends to side more with conspiracies against Catholic institutions (still only moderately) and against conspiracies involving anything related to Jewish linked institutions and government linked institutions (at least those associated with a Liberal Globalist agenda). Furthermore, if you have seen any of the hundreds of testimonials on YouTube regarding Hollywood, CIA, and Secret Society child abuse related to mind control, or you are keeping an eye on the current exposure of Satanic Ritual Abuse and busting of child-trafficking rings linked to the UN and other corporate institutions of globalism, his coverage of SRA (Alert Level 2 - out of 10) may even make you a little angry.

So, as somewhat of an expert in conspiracies, I can say that this book will show you exactly where this book's constructors want the public's understanding of the hidden truth to be stopped and held. It's as though they know that the populace are speedily waking up to 'the conspiracy' and that they have to manage it rather than simply deny it. With this in mind, it is hard to see that anyone with an ounce of understanding about the documented social engineering and conditioning imposed on the human populace in the last century would not see through the programming within this book. It could have been sponsored by the BBC (British Brainwashing Corporation) or CNN (Conspiracy Negation News).

If you really won't to bury your head in the sand about the reality of the Illuminati, Satanism, Luciferianism, Freemasonry, Secret Societies, Globalism, The NWO, psychopathic billionaire clubs, child abuse etc etc etc, then this book may help you get to sleep at night.

Not bad.

Food for thought....

The narration is flawless, as is the authors ability to weave between relevant theories. There are some great facts in this book. Great for a flight or train journey...

An Interesting and Fun Read.

The title intrigued me so I bought the book! I really did not know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! There were a lot of facts presented that were previously unknown to me. The alert Levels at the end of each "conspiracy theory" story was quite entertaining and spot on as far as believability. Take a chance on this one!

Gave me a headache

This is a disappointment. It gives very little information before the annoying alert blares out to signal a transition between two 4-minute chapters. When I realized that it will probably blare every few minutes in this 12 hour book, I stopped.

Either don't buy this book, or get some aspirins because you will get a headache.

Disinformation = Disservice 🍋 Shill Alert!

Jon Lewis? A worthless hack exploiting the conspiracy realist market for profit. He leaves out key facts that would otherwise make the case about what's really going on in this warped world of ours. He shamelessly ridicules truth at the listeners expense. This title is accurate as the book itself is a cover-up of the very theories it's purporting to expose. Swill from a Shill. Beware of his other books they no doubt have the same derailment from the path of truth. You'll find far better info on the web for free.

great content terrible narration.

Would you try another book from Jon E. Lewis and/or Peter Marinker?

The saliva sloshing around in the readers mouth makes listening to this book absolutely unbearable.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

This book contains the entire content of the Mammoth book of missing persons and mysterious deaths and I presume also the same content from all the other mammoth books by the same author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Marinker?

anyone else!

Could you see The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Sure why not.

Any additional comments?

Could have been greatly improved by some basic production values.

Interesting and good overall.

The book was good overall. It discusses a lot of conspiracy theories as it suggests. The one downside is that with discussing so many, it doesn't investigate each one very deeply. Still, it was enjoyable and informative.

Waste of time.

Didn't care for this book at all. British reader is hard to understand. The alert level warning at the end of the chapter is silly and hard to understand.

well written but overtly dismissive

Would you try another book from Jon E. Lewis and/or Peter Marinker?

the author basically dismisses the bulk of conspiracy evidence. the killer: "the mass of evidence regarding 911 clearly points to al queda and osama bin ladin." unbelievalbe.

Informative and Entertaining

Whether you believe in all conspiracy theories, believe in no conspiracy theories, or are open minded, this book is for you. The book presents conspiracy theories without really corroborating, validating, or proving them. Nor does it disprove them. It simply presents them and allows you to decide.

Should have read the other reviews first

Would not have bought the book if I had read many of the other reviews first. Shortcuts too many of the issues and has not done enough research to look for the truth regarding 9/11 in particular.
