Publisher's Summary

From the Report's original 1964 Introduction:

"President Lyndon B. Johnson, by Executive Order No. 11130 dated November 29, 1963, created this Commission to investigate the assassination on November 22, 1963, of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States. The President directed the Commission to evaluate all the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination and the subsequent killing of the alleged assassin and to report its findings and conclusions to him.

"The subject of the Commission's inquiry was a chain of events which saddened and shocked the people of the United States and of the world. The assassination of President Kennedy and the simultaneous wounding of John B. Connally, Jr., Governor of Texas, had been followed within an hour by the slaying of Patrolman J. D. Tippit of the Dallas Police Department. In the United States and abroad, these events evoked universal demands for an explanation....

"With this report the Commission is submitting the complete testimony of all the witnesses who appeared before the Commission or gave sworn depositions or affidavits, the accompanying documentary exhibits, and other investigative materials which are relied upon in this report."

Not what I expected.

This Book was actually far more entertaining to listen to than I thought it would be. Although I'm still left with plenty of questions, I can see that the Warren Commission thoroughly looked into and documented the lives of the main people involved in the assassination. if you have any interest at all in the JFK assassination I suggest you read or listen too this book. I'd also recommend picking up a hard copy of the book to makes notes and view the photo evidence mentioned in the report.

No matter how much you thought you knew about this topic you will be surprised at what a good read this is

I was concerned that this book would be very boring. It was interesting how they were able to weave so many details into a readable format. It’s worth reading for its historical value.

Best place to start to study the assassination

Very good logical analysis of the assassination. It does gloss over some questionable areas of interest but in general is 10x more honest about what really happened than practically any conspiracy book you can pick up.

The right conclusion.

Would you listen to The Warren Commission Report again? Why?

I would in case I missed some parts of it I thought might be important.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all excellent.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The man doing the intro I have, in top form here. The other ones, I hadn't.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'd already heard versions of the report, so no big reaction really.

Any additional comments?

None.

Great Read!

Audible made this an easy read! This is a detailed account of the investigation of the Kennedy assassination. For the conspiracy junkies out there it's always good to get both sides of the argument.

Great information

Excellent book. I do still believe the assassination was an inside job. Instead of providing other sources that contradict the Warren Commission’s theory, it is simply stated that “no credible sources were found.” Define credible.

Essentially the Truth!!!!

Doesn't matter what the subject matter is, whenever an investigation into an incident or accident is needed mistakes will always be made, when there are hundreds of not thousands of witnesses how can this not happen. Most have an opinion on who committed or did not commit the Kennedy Assassination, the report here based on evidence from the 26 volumes of the Warren Commission is no different, but I feel is essentially correct in its conclusions the only wrong conclusion being that the first shot missed and not the second as they thought at the time.
They found no evidence of a conspiracy and although over the years nearly all conspiracy theorists have tried to nonsense this report not one of them have come up with a satisfactory alternative that either makes sense. This report may contain holes, but all the theories out there contain mass nonsense that goes as deep as the core of the earth, theorizing so many things unproven that the heat of that core burned up most these years ago.
Being one of the few who has actually read this as well as all the main conspiracy books and vice versa, only one conclusion can be come to when you realise what is fact and what is fiction, theory IS fiction and fact is fact. Oswald committed this crime alone by himself, no CIA or FBI or Mafia or Russian help along the way before or after he committed this crime as well as murdering a servicing policeman, face the facts Oswald was that lone nutters!!!!!!
