    A reviewer

    This book is quite insightful. It gives all points of view on the various conspiracy theories with which it deals and there is lots of information which I had never heard before as well as some lesser known conspiracy theories. Really fascinating! Since there are so many more conspiracy theories around, perhaps a volume 2 of Web of Conspiracy?
