If you are interested in the JFK assassination, just starting to research the JFK assassination, or you have been studying the subject for a while you really need to have this book in your JFK library. The JFK Assassination: A Researcher's Guide is a compilation of almost 47 years of research, by some of the most noted author's in the JFK assassination community. It is like a depository for some of the most important issues of the assassination and more, all in one volume. The material is in an easy to read format with references so the reader can study an issue further if they wish.

The author starts by introducing you to people, places, and issues surrounding the JFK assassination. Then you will walk through a sequential order of events leading up to the shooting, including a broad view of the shooting itself. You will continue through the aftermath of the murder, showing the impact this crime had on our history.

You will also see proof Lee Harvey Oswald did not murder President Kennedy. Looking at the sequence of events you will see Oswald did not have time to get into position to do the shooting. The motorcade was scheduled to pass the Book Depository at 12:25 pm. Oswald was in the lunch room at 12:15. A good sniper would have been in position well in advance of his prey's expected arrival, which Oswald was not. Contrary to the WC's claim, authorities never had any court-worthy evidence putting Oswald in the sniper's window.

Finally, looking at the evidence from a totally new perspective you will see definite proof of a conspiracy. It was a simple case of comparing the wounds, with the bullet count, and the time statistics of the rifle. If you were not convinced of a conspiracy before, you will be!

Regardless of how the author came by his research...if the research is accurate, it still points out the OBVIOUS that we've known for over 40 years....Oswald did NOT shoot Kennedy. This was a well planned, well thought out, and well executed assassination that went all the way to the top of US Government and beyond. I personally think this is a great book. I like the outline format. It presented information I had not previously known about the assassination of Kennedy. Great book. Definitely recommended.

Sorry to say but Becker did not write anything that he investigated on his own. All he did was read several books by other authors and put excerpts from their books into this book and put his name on it. It was easy reading though because everything is written in outline format.
