    Looking for a book to add to my Kindle on the Kennedy Assasination. I'm not looking for your usual one-conspiracy story where the evidence is massaged to fit the theory presented, but rather a balanced look of all the possible theories and the evidence supporting each one. Can anyone suggest a possible book that does this well?

    This is not really your typical Kennedy Assassination book (and doesn't fit the criteria of what you're looking for) but I heard that new Stephen King book "11/22/63" was pretty good.

    Have you read the "Warren Commission Report"?

    At the end of King's new book he talks about which books he read as source material for it.

    I really liked it, it didn't even suffer from King's usual "oh fuck, I better end this thing and I had no plan for an ending, just an amazing story" thing.

    As far as a "balanced" look into things.

    Good luck.

    You are either going to find conspiracy books or books that look at the evidence and conclude Oswald was the shooter.

    There really is no in between because the conspiracies are all based on assumptions and bullshit.

    Oh, that sounds like a great read. And after that, I'm gonna read the Aviation Unit and Aviation Intermediate Troubleshooting Manual for the CH-47D Chinook Helicopter.

    Grassy knoll, man. Grassy knoll.

    lol, people think that just because the guy was an experienced marine sniper and had a range of only 80 yards and three chances that he could have made that shot. Fucking idiots :trollol:
