    I recommend a full read of this book with this reservation at this remove the disingenuous assertions are transparent, the most obvious being that one crazed gunman killed President Kennedy.That said I think I like the writer, my impression is that he is like a magazine writer doing his best, you d love to correct him but the overall work is good.
