This page lists books I'm not inclined to recommend. I'm listing them here so that when I forget that I declined to recommend them earlier, but then rediscover them, I don't have to start the process over again.

 

"Murder By Injection: The Story of the Medical Conspiracy Against America" by Eustace Mullins 
The author believes that the AMA gradually acquired total control over the medical schools and also over physicians through its accreditation power over physicians.

In fact, the AMA doesn't accredit physicians. State medical boards do. And it has no power over medical schools. He says the trail of these manipultors lead him right into the lairs of the international conspirators he previously had exposed in his earlier books of paranoid theories.

The author claims his knowledge comes from 40 years of work.

Some books don't back up their points solidly enough. Some only are descriptions of beliefs, not knowledge. I'm fine with theories that have reasoning behind them, or perspectives that might seem off the wall but still carry some insight. I'm less fine with things have little relationship to reality.
