Here are my top book choices on all things Covid:
While it may seem to some folks that the Covid crisis is now becoming a thing of the past, and in many places life is more or less returning to ‘normal,’ the bigger political and ideological war that is part and parcel of this are still fully with us. So if you think all this is just something from the past, you are quite mistaken.
As they say, the first casualty of war is the truth. That has certainly been the case in the Covid wars. Trying to find the truth when so many are pushing agendas can be very difficult indeed. Whether it is the Communist Party in China lying about the origins of the Wuhan Flu, or Big Pharma not being fully forthright about its products and their safety and efficacy, there is plenty of misleading and false information out there.
And when you have almost all of the media and most of our political leaders also happy to push a narrative while censoring, cancelling and squashing out any differing points of view, then the search for truth becomes all the more elusive. And difficult.
Thus alternative sources of information are needed in such times. Thankfully there are many. Of these out there – some better than others. Many thousands of articles, websites and videos are now available offering a somewhat different take on these matters. And a number of important new books are now out on these topics as well.
Here I offer you my top twenty-one volumes on Covid, government overkill, coercive medicine, the Great Reset, lockdown lunacy, Big Pharma, vaccine passports, and similar topics. While each of these issues may stand alone, in far too many instances they are interrelated. I am not saying there is some global monolithic conspiracy going on here, but there certainly are many interconnections, and quite a bit of overlap happening.
There is no question for example that folks like Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum most certainly sees the connects here. He even wrote a book (along with Thierry Malleret) in 2020 called COVID-19: The Great Reset. A year later the pair released another volume: The Great Narrative: For a Better Future. So these guys certainly view these things as all being connected.
So much has been written about these matters over the past several years. Because I’m a reading and writing kinda guy, I will here simply feature books on these subjects. As mentioned, there are of course now many thousands of articles available on all this. And there are now countless videos and podcasts also available. But here I will just feature books.
Almost all of these books have been penned during the last few years, although several somewhat older ones are also included. Here then are my top twenty-one volumes, simply listed in alphabetical order by author:

Woolhouse, Mark, The Year the World Went Mad. Sandstone Press, 2022.

Zimmermann, Augusto and Gabriel Moens, Emergency Powers, COVID-19 Restrictions & Mandatory Vaccination: A Rule-of-Law Perspective. Connor Court, 2022.
While most of the volumes featured here are written by Americans, not all are – Dodsworth and Woolhouse for example are from the UK. And at least four of these books are penned by Australians, eg., Foster, Markson and the two Zimmermann titles.
I happen to own most of these books, but not all. Wolf’s volume should be out later this month for example, while Morano’s book is due to be released in August of this year.
Moreover, several of these books I have written full-length reviews of, as for example here: billmuehlenberg.com/2022/03/31/a-review-of-the-great-reset-by-glenn-beck/
As to my favourite titles, well, it depends on the particular topic. Beck on the Great Reset is worth getting for example. Corbishley on vaccine passports is very helpful. And some of the volumes are quite large (eg., 400 to 800 pages in length) and very well researched with hundreds if not thousands of references, as in the books by Breggin, Kennedy and Posner.
Happy (if that is the right word for it) reading!
