Russ Kick has proved himself a master at uncovering facts that "they" would prefer you never hear about. The rapid success of the large-format Disinformation Guide series edited by Kick has only whetted a roaring public appetite for more revelations about government cover-ups, scientific scams, corporate crimes, medical malfeasance, historical whitewashes, media manipulation, and other knock-your-socks-off secrets and lies.
This CD-sized book packs a powerful punch in a small, attractive package intended for impulse and gift purchases, as well as serving as a handy reference book. Among Kick's amazing discoveries, all thoroughly documented:
- The first genetically modified humans have already been born.
- Hitler's blood relatives are living in the U.S.
- The CIA commits over 100,000 serious crimes per year.
- The U.S. planned to explode an atomic bomb on the moon.
- An atomic bomb was dropped on North Carolina.
- The main hero of the movie Black Hawk Down is a convicted child molester.
- The discoverer of HIV no longer believes the virus is the sole cause of AIDS.
- Kent State wasn't the only massacre of U.S. college students during the Vietnam era.

A uniquely valuable tool to debunk modern mythology and the people and institutions serving it up.
