Description

The first conspiracy theories about September 11 began to emerge while the wreckage was still smouldering. Today, 10 years later, hundreds of books and thousands of web pages are devoted to the idea that the U.S. government encouraged, permitted, or actually carried out the attacks. This in-depth investigation by "Popular Mechanics", first published in the magazine's March 2005 issue and now expanded into book form, definitively proves that the evidence most often cited by conspiracy theorists is inaccurate, misinterpreted, or false. The original article in "Popular Mechanics" caused a huge groundswell of interest, setting off online debates that continue to this day. "Debunking 9/11 Myths" expands that investigation to include the 20 most prominent and persistent claims underlying the conspiracy theories, focusing on concrete, physical facts rather than political hypothesizing. The in-depth findings come from leading experts in all the relevant fields, including aviation, air defence, civil engineering, firefighting, metallurgy and geology.show more

Review quote

Debunking 9/11 Myths is a reliable and rational answer to the many fanciful conspiracy theories about 9/11 What happened on 9/11 has been well established by the 9/11 Commission. What did not happen has now been clearly explained by Popular Mechanics. --Richard A. Clarke, former national security advisor, author of Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror This book is a victory for common sense; 9/11 conspiracy theorists beware: Popular Mechanics has popped your paranoid bubble world, using pointed facts and razor-sharp analysis. -Austin Bay, national security columnist (Creators Syndicate) and co-author of From Shield to Storm There is no time to waste. You must purchase Debunking 9/11 Myths. --Rocky Mountain News Certainly one of the most original--and potentially controversial--titles on the topic. --Publishers Weekly Do you have a friend who emails you the most recent documentary 'proving' that a missile impacted the Pentagon or that timed explosions brought down WTC-7? Buy him a copy of this book. He'll thank you later. --Weekly Standard "show more
