    "This is an interesting, if probably not expertly written book about the medical industry. It's billed as a "conspiracy theory" book, so there's probably a lot of sensationalism in it. However, it could still be an interesting book if you take it with a grain of salt, and if you want to see all sides of an argument, you can do worse than to look at the extreme points of view."

But nope, it's not, they really think Obama was the worst. (Have they seen Trump?) Definitely do not recommend."

    "Ancient cultures interest me, and I like to sit down and read as many books about them as I can. So, I picked up this book thinking that while I knew some things about Druidism already, this book would be a good way for me to see how much I did or didn't know - or, how it would spin some of the facts I had grown up to know. Since this book was written by an Irish Pagan, I had a feeling there would definitely be bias in the book. Surprisingly enough, it seemed like everything presented in the book was done straight-forward and matter of fact. I felt like some things were left out, but this is a good start on discussing gods, myths, and heroes of the druid culture."

    "Although a number of important studies of American slavery have explored the formation of slave cultures in the English colonies, no book until now has undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the development of the distinctive Afro-Creole culture of colonial Louisiana. This culture, based upon a separate language community with its own folkloric, musical, religious, and historical traditions, was created by slaves brought directly from Africa to Louisiana before 1731. It still survives as the acknowledged cultural heritage of tens of thousands of people"

    "This is an interesting book indeed. Drama, rivalry, and cutthroat maneuvers between the "gods" of the Democratic party. However, as with many readers, I have a bit of problem with the authors sourcing of his information and the resulting believability of the information. A "fake news" novel, or a factual study of contemporary political power? I am not convinced. Definitely an intriguing read though. "

    "If there were any question as to Gay Marriage, this book has the answers. I am a conservative, and politically felt that the government should stay out of marriage altogether--straight or gay. A friend (from a more liberal point of view) suggested I read this book.....I changed my mind (partially). I still believe that the government should play no part in marriage; but, I also see that marriage (gay or straight) is a spiritual union between to loving, committed human beings, and has been historically recognized by the catholic church and orthodox sects. I also see that changes in christian views of the bible came at the end of the fourteenth century, influenced by cultural biases and masogeny of the times. It gives a different perspective as to the truth of Christian teaching thereby upholding the idea of "love" as opposed condemnation and the "shall nots". I only wish I had read this earlier."
