I'm not a huge fan of Davids books TBH, he has some interesting ideas and insights, but as others have noted, there is a lot of repetition, plus they seem to lack coherence for me, jumping all over the place. Horses for courses I suppose.

In fairness, when only compared to other books in the "truther industry", Davids books are not too bad at all, but still not a big fan.

I've pre-ordered it off Amazon, even though I still have his two previous books to read LOL! While other books from different authors as-well etc...

If "Its all bollocks - yes, ALL of it." then why bother reading the book?

I'm pretty sure David Icke said his Ayahuasca experience was in 2002 or 3, not 1992...

The major recent exception to this was Infinite Love is the only truth.

That was an amazing book and entered into unchartered territory with a totally different theme and references.

But the others, they all seem to be quite similar. Infinite Love broke the mould. He should write more 'fresh' books instead of ones which go over old ground all the time but with a few new bits of info. Especially as that ground is constantly shifting under our feet.


Sorry if this appears to be a slag-off, it's just literally impossible to write 700 pages of new material every year or so. I would prefer a slimmer book like Infinite Love (236 pages) with BRAND NEW STUFF. Not reread the same stuff I've already read.

Just my opinion...... we're here to discuss right? I've never sought to be popular here, just to give my honest opinion. Worth more than hearing the bleatings of a fan club or the waving of pompoms to an honest man I would have thought.
Judging by how he can stand and talk a speech all day without getting bored and with the ability to keep on going even after closing time I assume if he typed at the same time all those thoughts were in his head he would be finished in a short amount of time.

I liked the Infinite Love book too, as well as I am Me I am Free. But yes I agree that his books get too repetitive now. However I think I will still give this one a try. I only found out about this one today hence the bump.

Does he type or dictate his books? I really cannot see him typing with those arthritic fingers.

Surely he must have an editor/s and researchers working for him. He publishes his own books. He is a successful business.

His books like his talks go over old ground to provide a foundation for the new stuff.

All he is writing is the new stuff, his editors will do the formatting all he has to do is expand on old ideas with new information.

I assume he does a big speech and someone types it out for him. It makes sense because his books usually do read like a speech.

1992 was when he was in Peru/Bolivia and stood on that mound/hill and got magnetised to the ground.

Funny thing to me is, I was watching TPV earlier and it was a video being shown when he took a group of people to where it all happened, when he was telling the story of it, he was apparently in a taxi being driven back to the airport and told the driver to pull over a minute (he was being called over a tiny hill), he got out and went up the hill and was there for apparently a long time stuck to the ground with his arms out.
Did the taxi driver not wonder where he'd gone and go up the hill to look for him? were his bags still not in the taxi?

900+ pages

How much of this is repetition from previous books, how much covers new ground not seen or heard before in previous books/talks?

I'm reading it now. Great book. Obviously some previous material (would be an odd book that just assumed you knew all this stuff), but also lots of new things. I'm loving it. Buy it, read it, lend it to a friend who is ready for it.
