"The President Has Been Shot!": the Assasination of John F. Kennedy's author, James L. Swanson is convinced that he did. This book was, of course, the very opposite of the Richard Belzer one! As you can see, I pretty much asked if anyone believe the Warren Commission's report? Well, people do! I had asked my mom and she does. I asked a bunch of my friends and it was 50/50.
This is a really, really well done and interesting book. Swanson does an excellent job of presenting the events of that tragic day, stirring emotions but also presenting the facts.
Remember though, I think that moon landing was faked. And the Warren Commission? A group of fiction writers.
It is good to read this book though, for sure. Just read something else, too. I would recommend the Belzer book!
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
