Not Really a Conspiracy bible
A very beneficial book but contains very few topics on conspiracy. Most are short 1/3 page stores about very interesting topics such as The templars, Al Queda and a bunch of other unrelated ideas. Overall, it is more like one of those books that tell you the 500 most useful books ever. You can use this book as a guideline to become better informed about the dark history of politics.

Heavily biased drivel
Although the author claims in the forward that he is merely relaying these conspiracies and has no opinion, his extremely biased opinion is starkly apparent throughout. Additionally, some of the accounts are relayed using blanket statements without a source or explanation as to how the conclusion was arrived at. If a particular conspiracy did not fit the political views of the writer, it was vehemently attacked. If it did, many crucial points were glossed over. According to this book, the CIA, FBI, and the Mafia, have been the root of all evil during the 20th Century
Fascinating, if not a bit Misleading
I say misleading because of the title, "Conspiracies & Conspiracy Theories." Many of the entries in this book don't explain why they are considered conspiracies, but instead talk about how they are in fact interesting.
Other than that, this is one of the most interesting books I have read in a very long while. Of course, it covers all the biggest theories: JFK assassination, alien abuctions, and the Holocaust denial, to name a few. But it also covers a huge range of topics, from secret government operations, to entire countries and everything in between.
This is a intriguing book for everyone, the conspiracy theorists, the non-believers, and the people who just like to read about weird stuff. Only the thickest of skeptics would read this book and not raise an eyebrow or two.
