It is the day that leader of Peoples Temple (PT), James Warren Jones, ordered the assassination of U.S. Congressman Leo J. Ryan and others at the Port Kaituma airstrip in South America, then led his congregation on what Guyana's police chief, Skip Roberts, testified was a "mass suicide." Decades later, however, the depth of this story is still unknown, and many scholars and former members who have continued their exploration of the incidents have found that there is still plenty of evidence as well as plenty of sinister connections that contradict the official version of this story. Jonestown: "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid" is the chronological story of the rise and fall of Peoples Temple and its leader Jim Jones-from his early years in Indianapolis and California, to the tragic ending in the jungle of South America that claimed the lives of 918 Americans. Jonestown: "Don't Drink the Kool-Aid" comprehensively details the many links that Jones and his compound had with the CIA and their MKULTRA experiments. Through a comprehensive analysis of Jones' life, Peoples Temple, and the investigation and the aftermath of the mass murder/suicides; this book is designed to be the quintessential marking piece that will re-introduce this story to society and serve as a reminder of the infamous mantra that hung in the pavilion in Jonestown: "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it."...

    This book might have some decent information in it, but I'll never know because I can't get past its numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Several words are used incorrectly and it's very distracting. Putting it down before page 50. There are probably better resources out there, I wouldn't trust a book written so poorly.

    I found this pretty interesting but the last few chapters were hard reads when it got into the aftermath and making guesses at what they thought was why all this happened. I am not convinced that Jim Jones was involved with the CIA but then again I would not be surprised.

    Would have given the book a 4 star except the few chapters at the end of the book trying to say he worked for the CIA. This was just bizarre. He was just a cruel individual pretending to be a preacher.

    This book was nothing so much as a regurgitation of everything that has been available in video interviews of Jonestown. It was pretty disappointing.

    excellent book, well written, well researched, however contains shocking typos and mix-up of homophones.
