    This book is excellent and details all sorts of information on events that don't really make the main stream news and are hidden from most people He has diligently read from vast numbers of sources including government papers released to the public It is frightening though when you read about how little governments care about people and are only interested in their own power and wealth Not that this is a surprise but nevertheless it is still a bit astonishing
