60 Greatest Conspiracies Of All Time - History's Biggest Mysteries, Cover-ups, And Cabals by Jonathan Vankin PDFIn December, I went to The Last Bookstore in Downtown Los Angeles and was in love with their discount section upstairs. I had a few books I saw that I had always wanted to buy, but I saw this book. A book with a Barnes and Noble discount sticker half-ripped off of the book cover sleeve. It interested both my boyfriend and I, so I took a gamble and bought this book because I didn't think I would ever run into it again. The fact that I'd never seen it, should've been the first clue about it's past.
The blurb on the back just listed a few of the conspiracies that the book included (I think they mentioned Marilyn Monroe, the Unabomber, etc.) which I never knew existed, so I was intrigued. I didn't do any research besides reading the blurb. If I had opened the book, I would have realized that this book was published in the early 1990s. Hopes for reading about 9/11 or any contemporary events were lost. I didn't realize this until I was about 75% of the way done (mainly because they kept focusing on events that happened in the 1960s and 1970s, and they referenced a 1980s event as a decade in the past lol), but I kept on reading. A lot of the conspiracy theories were based on governmental scandals, which would make sense. I don't know what exactly I was expecting with reading this. It took me over a month to read this book. Some stories were very inclusive of all parties involved (a chapter had so many commanders and generals and politicians mentioned that I found myself dozing off mid-sentence), which felt like overkill. I would be lying if I said that it was always uninteresting, however.
The chapter on Martin Luther King's assassination, as well as Marilyn Monroe's death were highly informative and brought to my attention things that I never knew. This brings me to my next point about the perception of conspiracy. Conspiracy isn't just crazy people thinking about things. It's knowing the facts that we know, and postulating that there could be another way of interpreting the facts. The MLK chapter does warrant some factual merits, as do the stories I read about.
Overall, it wasn't for me, but it's not the books fault that I didn't look into what was in it! If these topics interest you, it sounded like it would be interesting if I cared about the subject matter.
