    I'm a conspiracy nut, but I don't believe all of them. This is a very interesting read. Not far into it yet but some compelling stuff. The author is a professor and he's definitely done his homework here.

    Was this any good? A review said there was very little Hillary dirt. It's just 5% of the book and 100% of what the news focused on.

    I don't believe the conspiracy theory about Sandy Hook.....but this book is well researched and they make some compelling points thus far. An interesting read nonetheless.

    Here's the thing - there will be any number of discrepancies because humans will make errors before and after the incident. Those points are not necessarily made up, although some of the claims clearly are.

    But to jump from that to his conclusions? That is dirty pool. My cousin is an academic and I've done time in grad school - trust me when I say professors are no less susceptible to sensational stupidity than the rest of us.

    Very true....and I'm not saying what he's written is the truth, just that it's a compelling and interesting read.

    The secret service guy who wrote it was posted right outside the Oval Office most of the time, so he saw Bill and not much of Hillary.

    He does have a few stories about Hillary. You won't like it if you want the whole book to be about Hillary. It's basically an auto-biography of the agent during the time he served at the White House and the Federal Air Marshal Service.

    This book is an oral history by the guy who did the oral histories of SNL and ESPN. Everyone participated, from Michael Ovitz & Ron Meyer on down, including a lot of CAA clients. I'm halfway through it and like it alright, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're already interested in the subject.
