In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception. For too long, the mainstream press has refused to consider alternate possibilities and to ask the tough questions. Here, Ventura looks closely at the theories that have been presented over the years and separates the fact from the fiction. In Ventura's eyes, the murder of Abraham Lincoln and the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King all need to be reexamined. Was Watergate presented honestly, or was the CIA involved? Did the Republican Party set out to purposefully steal two elections on behalf of George W. Bush? Has all the evidence been presented about the 9/11 attacks, or is there another angle that the media is afraid to explore? And finally, is the collapse of today's financial order and the bailout plan by the Federal Reserve the widest-reaching conspiracy ever perpetrated? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristjan Wager | 2/18/2014

    " Not particularly well written, and unfortunately very prone to conspiracy theories (which I guess the title should have told me). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Tornambe | 2/18/2014

    " This book was okay until the end, when Jesse pontificated for around 100 pages. No surprises though...if you are a conspiracy theorist, you've heard all of the arguments contained in this book before. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 2/13/2014

    " He is very courageous, outspoken, and has done some investigation into the many infamous alleged conspiracies, but the work is far from sufficient to bring any case near a conclusion or even a clear direction of more investigation. One typically suspects already before reading this book and suspects more after, that's all. Additionally, the writing style is quite plain and monotonous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Carson | 2/5/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book and the different views on things we think we know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/25/2014

    " Some of it seems crazy, and some of it probably is, but it also raises some interesting points about why the government gets to dictate what we know, even though "we the people" are supposed to be the government. At the very least, it makes you think. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gerald | 1/24/2014

    " Another book on tape for a long road trip; I expected little and was not disappointed. I give the governor credit for finding 'documentation' for his views, and while he creates room for doubting, he didn't convince me that 'the government' is responsible for everything he claims it is responsible for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanjlisa Marie | 1/10/2014

    " Love this guy! Where else but in America can you go from Navy SEALS to wrestle star to actor to governor to TV host! This was a good read and the references allowed for easy fact-checking! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malrubius | 1/6/2014

    " Audiobook. Perhaps the most important book I have read since 9/11 (along with Naomi Klein's Disaster Capitalism." Passionate and well-researched. Something is rotten in the United $tates of America. "

    " Really enjoyed it, and, while I may not agree with all or most of his theories, I do think he's on the right track on several of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabe Hawkins | 11/12/2013

    " Excellent book that exposes the lies the government and media perpetuate. At times comes to conclusions that I don't necessarily agree with 100% but nevertheless presents all the evidence in a factual manner and leaves room for one to draw one's own conclusions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 5/26/2013

    " Should this book be accepted as truth? No. Does it at least get you thinking about U.S. history? Yes. Does it make you wonder who the ghost writer was? Definitely. "

    " I like Jesse's writing, even though I may not agree with the existence of some of the "conspiracies" he writes about. I consider it a divergent opinion from the mainstream, and I enjoy getting all sides of the story. "
