    I just started reading your fascinating book. I have known about cancer and the monkey virus for many years, so your book adds a lot of insight. So far I've only read about a fifth of it but I am fascinated. After reading many articles about how pretty well all pituitary tumors and bone cancers have the monkey virus in them, and knowing that 1 out of 5 people has a pituitary tumor, it is indeed interesting. I myself have an pituitary tumor (adenoma - not microadenoma) that continues to grow over a mm each year and affects my health enormously, but since my body doesn't react well to bromocriptine 'a drug with some LSD-type compounds in it', I can't do anything about it. It will just continue to grow and grow until I either become blind, 'extremely' ill, or they finally decide to take it out. They tell me it's so dangerous to remove it's just best to let it grow until -- until what? I die or the night headaches become totally totally unbearable? So many people have pituitary tumors! The really sad part is that most women don't realize that tumors that secrete prolactin (most of them) are especially dangerous to women with breast cancer. Dr. Clevenger has won big awards for his work at the University of Pennsylvania for proving that these tumors cause cancer to become 'organized' and 'head directly toward the lymph nodes.' You would therefore think that doctors would test women for prolactin, especially if they had breast cancer, right? Nope! Doctors never test for prolactin unless people ask for it. Isn't it odd that since one out of five people have such tumors, they wouldn't test everyone for this? Would you believe prolactin tests aren't even on a standard lab form? Doctors have to 'write' them in, separately. After reading your book just so far, I do have to ask if the reason these tests aren't put on papers is because maybe they just don't want the public to become too aware of it. Or worse yet, maybe it's not just one out of 5 who has such tumors. It could be that if they actually tested EVERYONE, they might have to admit that more like 1 out of 2 might have them, or perhaps 100% of the population! No wonder breast cancer rates are rising so fast! I'm going to rate this book tops already.

    Great Book ! Scarry to think about.

    Being originally from south Louisiana, I know the names and places discussed in the book. If the facts are true, as they seem to be, it makes one wonder what we've done to ourselves and future generations.

    If the TRUTH is important to you

    Dr. Mary's Monkey is a book that should capture your attention if, in fact, you care about this nation, the truth and the government-designed mystery surrounding the deaths of JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, and US Navy LCDR William Bruce Pitzer. I know many of those who are talked about in this book. I know the covert action system that uses compartmentalization, subterfuge and undocumented actions to silence those who would bring the truth to bear on tragic, illegal activities of our government that uses the Mafia, US Army Special Forces and CIA to accomplish what would otherwise be legally impossible. I was one of those trained to kill and terrorize.

    Incredible Revelations, Painstakingly Researched

    If you or your parents ever received a polio vaccination in the 1950s, you'll definitely want to read this book. Has anyone you cared about ever died of AIDS? Don't be fooled by the flippant tone of the title: this is one meticulously researched book. It is replete with absolutely breathtaking revelations. Too bad they NEVER give Pulitzers in this genre. Another important thing you quickly realize after reading this book is how incredibly shallow the Warren Commission report really was. If Lee Harvey Oswald associated on an almost daily basis with David Ferrie and Guy Bannister while on assignment in New Orleans early in 1963, why was this not uncovered at the time of the hearings and put into the public record? An average Crescent City private eye could have made this determination in less than a week for the inexpensive payment of $100 a day and expenses. Luckily, Jim Garrison found the connection after the commission disbanded, though he may not have ever truly known the full implications of the nefarious liaisons of the future patsy. Unluckily,for his diligent pursuit of justice, the government stonewalled and harassed him 'now we know why' and ultimately sent the IRS after him 'a common ploy of that era, directed at the enemies of those in power'. If the Warren commissioners could have avoided perjured testimony, interviews with these people would have been most enlightening. When looking into LHO's background, should these rather strange, but verifiable, details of the New Orleans station not have been disclosed, just as the defection to Russia was. Bear in mind, these were not random brief encounters by the project's key personnel. Lee Harvey Oswald apparently knew these local CIA people quite well and worked together with them 'and others in the project' for many months. He was seen in their company by many people, any number of whom are still living today. One special lab assistant on the medical research team, a brilliant and attractive young woman, has stepped forward finally 'most courageously so', no longer afraid for her life. Incredibly, without ever wishing to, she played a very important role in shaping our national destiny. And she is still alive, willing to set the record straight, now that her children are grown. Dr. Mary, her boss, unfortunately turned up dead. The clandestine government project to which LHO was attached required time to set up, considerable biological expertise, a specialized team of just the right research people, a large cover facility with a super-electrical system and mega-budget government funding. When you read further and learn why they needed this secret facility, you will then know why cancer has plagued this nation as an epidemic since the early 1950s. You will learn why the entire medical community 'ie those willing to admit it' knows that cancer was a relatively infrequent disease prior to 1950. Since that time, certain forms originating in New Orleans have killed far too many millions of Americans and spread like a plague throughout the world. Playing with the biological fire that grew on research monkey kidneys, Pandora's box was opened by people who were incredibly irresponsible. Destroying the nuclei of germs and viruses at the atomic level is now known to be incredibly dangerous. Can it be true that so many, many millions have died horrible and premature deaths as a result. Do look at the year-by-year graphs. Compare the data for the census years 1900 through 2000 and you will quickly see what has been swept under the government's rather worn and detritus-filled carpet. You will see a spike in the graph that was, until now, inexplicable. Man has abused Nature yet again. But there were some who knew about it all, high-ranking public officials, including Vice President Richard Nixon. Yes, even he is a player in this sordid expose. When doctors leave a pair of scissors in a patient and sew him up, they get sued for malpractice. What happens when the government sanctions mass

    Conspiracy Theory?

    I was browsing through Barnes & Noble to see what was new when I came upon "Dr.Mary's Monkey". I saw this book and said NO WAY this story can be true. I enjoy history that involves New Orleans, so I said why not see what conspiracy theory they can come up with now. To my surprise and delight I was engrossed in the story. Being familiar with the people and places that are involved, helped me follow the story. I would not have believed anything if it had not been backed up by sooo may facts. The references are the most important part of the story. I was amble to research any statement that was too hard to believe. In my opinion, any one who has a interest in the facts behind the JFK assassination, the cancer origins and unknow facts about New Orleans, would truly enjoy this book.

    This book, without a doubt, was one of the best researched, well written, page turning books that I have ever read ... impactful, eye opening, thought provoking, history challenging ride. I have no doubt in my mind that everything that is stated holds a tremendous amount of truth. I have great respect for the author for risking so much to get this story out to the public. What a wake up call that we all need. I am of the generation of children who received the polio vaccine and I did suffer an adverse affect in the form of Guillain-Barre Syndrome and placed in a hospital w/polio victims in the early 50's. Luckily, I survived. Kudos to you, Edward T. Haslam, for writing one of the most informative books on the subject of vaccines and (accidently if so) the Kennedy assination. Truly facinating. You are an unsung hero.

    Food for thought!

    If you like to hear theories and plausible explanations for major events that have happened over the last 50 years, read this book! Was recommended by two other friends, and I finished it in 1.5 days!! Could not put it down- the theories put forth bt Mr Haslam make a lot of sense to any one with an open mind. One has to at least accept the premise of a major cover-up among the very groups that we think are here for our protection!! Provocative and incredibly well- researched.

    I would love to discuss this book with others. It's fascinating, gripping and logical. Yes, the layout on the nook leaves something to be desired, but does not detract from the import of the facts of this lifelong pursuit of information by the author. There is a connect the dots going on that is leading me to more and further study. Highly recommeneded.

    Highly Recommended!

    As a student of JFK assination, growing up on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain and New Orleans, and having been vaccinated in the early 60's, this was a natural book for me to be drawn too. The author did an awesome job of telling the collective stories of all the players and events. One major question though: Why is no one paying attention to this?

    Every American Should Read

    This book is a must read for any American who believes one of government's primary tasks is protecting its citizens. The U.S. government authorized the polio vaccine for all children back in the 50s-60s, but til this day has not publicly acknowledged that the vaccine contained an unintended MONKEY VIRUS that is suspected in causing higher than normal cancers today. Did they also cause AIDS? How ironic that people involved in this also popped up in investigations of the Kennedy Assassination, i.e., David Ferry??

    This is not your typical conspiracy book. Don't be a doubter, the book is well documented. Read it for an eye opening lesson in corruption and lies. Our government will tell us anything that serves its purposes at any given time in spite of facts available to all. WOW!

    Raises more questions than it answers...

    The premise of the book is that the murder of a popular New Orleans doctor is connected to Lee Harvey Oswald (the historical killer of JFK) and other nefarious JFK assassination characters, and that this murder was part of (another) extensive cover up involving polio vaccine contaminated with cancer causing monkey viruses, which eventually morphed into the dreaded HIV and another attempt to assassinate Fidel Castro. Wow!

    While I found the story plausible, I didn't find many things in the book that were easily verifiable. The book was written in a style very similar to the way an author would write his or her memoirs. The author spends a lot of time recalling various conversations that he was involved in or had heard about. He spends a lot of time detailing interviews that he personally conducted as well. Some of the information in the story seemed as though it was just too convenient to have happened. That's not to say that the event was made up but it just seemed to be that way. For example, the author talks about his girlfriend having lived in the very apartment where David Ferrie had been keeping his collection of experimental lab rats...really? Are we just supposed to take the author's word in good faith? Futhermore, many of the pictures and documents in the book seem to be there just for the sake of taking up space and add nothing of real significance to the story. Several maps or pictures detailing specific locations (like Mary Sherman's apartment or David Ferrie's apartment and the apartment where he kept his mice) were interesting but really didn't help substantiate the author case. Most troubling of all were the cancer incidence graphs which the author put together. I don't question the author's ability to put together a graph, however it would have carried much more credibility if the graph had been prepared by th AMA, or CDC or American Cancer Society. (Keep in mind that the author is not a doctor but an advertisement executive!)

    Nonetheless, if the views of the author are accurate then Edward Haslam has written the most important book since the Guttenberg Bible. I just found his claims impossible to verify, though they are certain to give any reader numerous reasons for pause and reflection.

    Caveat emptor: who can believe such shoddy work?

    Do not buy this book for Nook: the digital edition is saturated with typographical errors, missing or irrelevant words. No proofreading, no copy-editing.

    Most of the photographs are too small to be able to read the captions printed on top of them. The layout is erratic: why does it switch back and forth from one-column or two-columns? Photos embedded within the text cause extremely awkward page breaks.

    There aren’t many facts to begin with; most of this book is speculation and connect-the-dots implication. Lack of attention to the writing, editing and presentation cast serious doubt on the content. How can you believe in the author’s fact-checking when the rest of his work is so sloppy?

    don't waste your money

    I lost count on the number of coincidences in the book. An example of this is his old girl friend just happens to live in the apt that was the possible lab of one of the men in the book. The book at best is BS...If you want to dump good money go ahead but be warned this is a joke.
