Joan Shenton Reviews “Official Stories” by Liam Scheff

RTB: A review of Liam’s new book “Official Stories” by one of the best in the business.

 

“Liam Scheff writes with filmic energy. His quick cuts, graphic images and verbal agility are all delivered with the speed and deadly accuracy of a seasoned comedian’s one liners. We have long needed this approach to the telling of a story that has been almost impossible to tell – that HIV doesn’t cause AIDS and that big science and big pharma have got it wrong for the past 30 years. It’s is difficult to explain that something doesn’t do something, but Scheff tells the very complicated story behind the official story in a completely understandable way with simple and incisive sentences like: ‘In the beginning there was an idea and it was stupefyingly incorrect. But no one could ever say so because they were getting paid to put it right.’ Bottom line, Liam Scheff is brilliantly funny. But his genuine concern and compassion is never absent. His description of how unlimited gay sex and life in the fast lane led to the loss of a “functional immune system” is an important social document, and his anger in the stark description of the poisoning with AZT of 100,000 young gay men will be remembered forever. Don’t miss this book.”

Official Stories
Counter-Arguments for a Culture in Need
by Liam Scheff

“Official stories exist to protect officials.” With the opening line as our guide, we’re going to pry open the vault of “official-dom” and see what lies beneath. Drawing information from 10 years of investigative journalism, Liam invites you to join the hunt for the details that lie just beneath the surface.

In this heavily-researched but irreverent book, we’ll look under the rocks and stones of our culture: From CIA and JFK, to 9/11 and Shakespeare; from Vaccination to HIV to Big Bang theory, and more.

We’re going to find out what’s real, what’s true, and what’s just an “official story.”
