Please do NOT waste your money on this book. I'm all for opposing viewpoints, but biased propaganda is not informative. I have never given a book a 1 star rating, but this book got one from me. I felt the author was hypocritical and contradicted himself several times. And if I had to read "HIV virus" one more time I was going to scream (the V in HIV stands for virus, so he was saying Human Immunodeficiency Virus virus). He was also very repetitive (which is a tool of brainwashing).
What I took away from this book:
- media doesn't always tell us the whole truth or they spin it for sensationalism (wait! I already knew that)
- we shouldn't be pushing for national healthcare (I'm all for informed consent and right to choose medical care and national healthcare could strip us of these).
- Be informed when voting (these people are the only ones we can truly hold accountable for the decisions that affect us as a society).
- Greed can corrupt people (again I knew that before I read this book).
In addition to his tactics, I fear he may also be giving deadly information. He does not believe cancer is a disease and that we can heal ourselves of it. He says a temperature of 106 F in a child is not really all that high.
I could go on and on about why this book shouldn't be read or taken very seriously, but I've already wasted too much of my time on it. I did receive a free copy at my request for review (I have always been curious about the books infomercial authors sell). While I didn't think I would change my view on vaccines, I was hoping for a less biased argument.
Once Upon a Read-a-thon Update: I finished the audio book The Undomesticated Goddess, so will start Room today. I'm on page 65 of Convergence and page 45 of Tribulation Point. Though it doesn't seem that I'm getting much accomplished, the read-a-thon is helping me get back on the reading train after my vacation.I checked out the mini-challenges yesterday. I had no clue about the book covers and I don't read mythology (I didn't even know there was an Egyptian mythology). I would like to read the Percy Jackson series as the movie was pretty good.
