1.0 out of 5 stars "Elite Deviance" only affordable by Elite Feb. 16 2016
By Dr. A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Content is good. This book should be read by *everybody* but the very high price (any edition even!) indicates that the publisher/ sellers/ distributors/ author would actually like to be part of the deviant elite, keeping the book's information out of the hands of anyone other than plutocrats and their kids. And on Amazon - trade in price is only $10.37! That should be the *selling* price if the above parties want many readers. Amazon - How about a free Kindle or Kindle Unlimited version?

1.0 out of 5 stars Unworthy of the title "Textbook." Sept. 16 2012
By Just a guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Terrible, biased, and a complete fraud. Simon clearly has an agenda, and his overwhelming message is that any organization of 3 or more persons is bent on the entire destruction of the world. If you believe him, the Roman Catholic Church, CIA, and the Mob are all in collusion against the people of the world. This book is required reading for a class, but it loses all value when the author has the gall to cite Wikipedia as an academic reference. Hopefully those of you who aren't required to purchase this book will look somewhere else. Simon should surrender his credentials as an academic immediately.
