Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks

Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks

People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]

Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race

Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race

As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]

Review: “Breath” By James Nestor

Review: “Breath” by James Nestor Every now and then I come across a book that I claim is the most important book I have read this year. Of course, I sometimes say that two or three times a year. However, one such book is “Breath – The New Science Of A Lost Art”, by James […]

Review: The Hunt For Zero Point – By Nick Cook

Review: The Hunt For Zero Point – By Nick Cook

In an effort to get a little distance from hardcore politics and history, I recently reviewed a book on the counterculture in the ’70’s and a great book on Bigfoot. Now comes a book on government research into antigravity and the “flying saucer” phenomenon. “The Hunt For Zero Point – Inside The Classified World Of […]

Review: “Daydream Sunset” – By Ron Jacobs

Review: “Daydream Sunset” – By Ron Jacobs

Review: “Daydream Sunset” By Ron Jacobs Ah, the 1970’s. Been there for sure, it’s when I had my first alcohol, first car, first real girlfriend… It seemed like the 1970’s hit a pause button. Radicals and activists had paved the way in civil rights, women’s rights, environmental issues, and the war in Vietnam stumbled to […]

Review: Bigfoot! – The True Story Of Apes In America

Review: Bigfoot! – The True Story Of Apes In America

I’ve been interested in “Bigfoot” since I was a kid and saw the Patterson-Gimlin film of a female Bigfoot casually walking by a creek. In fact, deep in Oregon’s coast range my friend and I were screamed at repeatedly by a large animal – but more on that later. So of course I began to […]

Review: CHAOS – Charles Manson, the CIA and the Secret History of the Sixties

By John Titus 1969 was a clear turning point in American society. Opposition to the Vietnam war was at an all-time high, the civil rights movement was rolling, and activists were presenting a new vision of human interaction that was an existential threat to the conservative establishment. The year before, both Robert Kennedy and Martin […]

Review: “The Longevity Solution”

Review: “The Longevity Solution”

Years ago I went with a family member to see their heart surgeon. He told us that “Everything they taught him in medical school about diet was wrong”. Now we have further proof, in a recent book called “The Longevity Solution – Rediscovering Centuries-Old Secrets to a Healthy, Long Life”. This book, written by Dr. […]

Review: “A Lie Too Big To Fail” – Lisa Pease On The Robert Kennedy Assassination

September 22, 2019
Review: “A Lie Too Big To Fail” – Lisa Pease On The Robert Kennedy Assassination

I remember June 6th 1968 very well. It was my younger brother’s birthday, bright and sunny. My parents had intentionally left the morning paper where I could see it, and the banner headline announced that Senator Robert Kennedy had been killed. It was a familiar feeling as I recalled when President John Kennedy was shot, […]

Authors Joe Green And Lisa Pease Weigh In On “The Parallax View”, Mind Control

Author Joseph Green has written some great analysis of one of the most famous conspiracy movies ever; “The Parallax View”, starring Warren Beatty. “The Parallax View” pulls the curtain back on one of the most secret programs developed by psychologists working for intelligence agencies; the program to create a “Manchurian Candidate”. That is, a program […]

  • Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard
    Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]

  • George And Barbara, A Couple Of Real Turkeys
    Flock of turkeys currently stalking our road *** Many years ago I was the caretaker of a 300-acre farm on the Columbia River in Oregon. The farms in the area were very isolated, with tons of wildlife. I planted corn and millet for game feed and the owners occasionally hunted there. Meanwhile, I grew huge […]

    Once in a while a book comes long that smacks you in the head and says: “This is whats really going on”. “Surveillance Valley – The Secret Military History Of The Internet” – by Yasha Levine, is just such a book. We live in an age of technical wonder, a quasi-magical age where information is […]
