"A remarkable story that changed the way I view the world."--JAMES BRADLEY, author of Flags of Our Fathers
"Arguably the most important book yet written about a U.S. president ... Should be required reading for all high school and college students, and anyone who is a registered voter!"--JOHN PERKINS, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman
"The best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance ... But don't take my word for it. Read this extraordinary book and reach your own conclusions." --OLIVER STONE, director
"Jim Douglass has unraveled the story of President Kennedy's astonishing and little-known turn toward peace, and the reasons why members of his own government felt he must be eliminated. This disturbing, enlightening, and ultimately inspiring book should be read by all Americans. It has the power to change our lives and to set us free."--MARTIN SHEEN
"JFK and the Unspeakable is an exceptional achievement. Douglass has made the strongest case so far in the JFK assassination literature as to the Who and the Why of Dallas."--GERALD McNIGHT, author of Beach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why
"Once in a great while a book comes along that both records history and makes it. ... An exciting work with the drama of a first-rate thriller." --MARK LANE, author of Rush to Judgment
"Right now, I ask all of you--please please, read JFK and the Unspeakable! I cried all night reading it, and didn't sleep a wink. It is a book that could make us stand up and change the world, right now. Maybe we can save the world before it blows up. Really."--Yoko Ono
"In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters."--Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
