Summary

The Bodies of Others is about how we came to the harrowing civilizational crossroads at which we find ourselves—engaged in a war against vast impersonal forces with limitless power over our lives and which threaten the freedoms we have always taken for granted. 

In her most provocative book yet, Dr. Naomi Wolf shows how these forces—from Big Tech and Big Pharma to the CCP and our oligarchical elites—seized upon two years of COVID-19 panic in sinister new ways, to not only undermine our republic but to fundamentally reorient human relations. 

Their target is humanity itself. Their end goal is to ensure that our pre-March 2020 world is gone forever. Irretrievable. To be replaced with a world in which all human endeavor—all human joy, all human fellowship, all human advancement, all human culture, all human song, all human drama, all worship, all surprise, all flirtation, all celebration—is behind a digital paywall. A world in which we will all have to ask technology's permission to be human. 

But we, the people of the world, did not vote to abandon our old systems and destroy our old ways so absolutely they could never be recovered. And Wolf shows how, against overwhelming odds, we still might win.

Everyone should read this book.

God bless Dr Naomi Wolf and her quest for truth. This book should be a wake up call for us all.

A necessary wake up call

Naomi is a true heroine for our troubled times. Her writing on this subject is informative yet deeply personal, weaving her lived experience and science together to create a powerful picture of the shocking and often shameful events of recent years.

A must listen

Naomi Wolf dose a fantastic job of shedding light on much darkness. It's a shame she didn't narrate the book herself, but the content is still top class, even if much of what she talks of is scary. I appreciated the white pill of courage at the end.

Essential reading for everyone who can read.

There has not been a period in human history that compares with the past two years of Covid hysteria. If you have any interest in looking into the real causes of lockdowns, mask mandates, and all the unusual and cruel measures imposed on most of the world's populations, then this book is an essential component of your research.

Tedious, boring, uninformative, read by robot

I thought I'd learn something new from this book but it was so dull! It's just a long drawn out description of the pandemic that ANYONE who lived through it will be fully aware of. It brings nothing to the table. No new ideas, no new analysis, no insider info, nothing! I genuinely think the only type of reader that would find this interesting would be an alien or someone discovering it in a time capsule. If you experienced the pandemic, you don't need to hear someone describing what you just experienced. No idea what Wolf thought she was bringing to the table with this. It's clearly just a cynical cash grab, which is pretty soulless.

Also, the book claims to be narrated by a human, which is a lie. It's narrated by an artificial automated voice, which sure may have derived from a human once upon a time but to claim that a human narrated this book is truly dishonest. The robot voice was very dull to listen to.

I'm requesting a refund as this book really disappointed me in many ways. It makes me doubt whether Naomi Wolf is one of the good guys tbh. Do better.

A chilling account of the author’s journey through the pandemic

I like the way Naomi has charted her own journey through the mayhem of the last two years and her realisation that all was not as it appeared. I admire her bravery in joining with the forces of good and speaking out, despite being ostracised by friends & family for not taking the injection.
Her research through her fellow brave scientists is superb and I pray her words will be widely read and thus awaken the sleeping to the malfeasance, malevolence and plain murder that has been perpetrated to innocent people across the globe.
Most of all, I share her continuing concern that these evil forces are stopped as they are still coercing people to take this poison injection, especially our precious children who may be harmed irreparably or even killed.
My only criticism might be that I’d have preferred a female narrator but that’s a relatively minor critique.

Superb

For me there is not much in this book i didn't already know, however it is worth reading as a reminder and i have purchased the hardcover, as having a non-digital physical copy of this may be needed to explain to people in the not to distant future the mechanisms used to usher in the draconian life that they now lead. 😡

Must Read! - For the sake of our children!

Another amazing book, along with The Real Anthony Fauci, that sheds the truth about the corruption, dishonesty and pure evil of the people in power!

I was disappointed with the narration though. I felt it should've been read by a woman having been written by a woman and the narrator not being able to pronounce his L's was a little annoying. Apart from that this book is a must buy!!!

Read this book!

Intellectually rigorous and simultaneously deeply humane and heartfelt. I wish everyone would read this book. Unfortunately the ones who need to read it are completely unaware of it. Just wish it had been Naomi herself narrating it.

Excellent book despite the narrator

This is an eye opening, insightful book that reveals so much about the way our world is controlled by the elite. Unfortunately the narrator isn’t great. I had to stop and will just order a hard copy. The narrator has trouble pronouncing the letter “L” and makes a bizarre and rather off-putting guttural sound every time he comes across that letter, and that’s enough to distract from the narrative for me. I recommend reading this one instead of listening for that reason alone.

Monotone narration

This is an excellent book with one of the worst narrations I've ever heard (including the mispronouncing of common words like "origin"). Would love to hear Naomi Wolf read this herself!

Engaging work

Naomi Wolf writes about a fairly complex and dizzying subject in a very readable way. She expresses clearly the feelings (with facts) that I have had since the pandemic arrived, and oddly the CDC refused to approve or even suggest preventative steps. It smelled unethical not to advocate even increased levels of vitamin D in the hundreds of hours answering questions by Dr Fouci.
I was already quite informed on the controversy regarding these “vaccines” but it is always good to hear another view in a different voice.

Must Read!

This book is factual, yet moving. Dr. Wolf includes not just medical data but personal stories. You will come away from this book better informed, perhaps angry, perhaps very sad. Essential reading for every American.

A Voice of Reason

Dr. Wolfe should be heralded for her courage to honor truth over personal conviction. She had no mission to harm or deface anyone, especially her fellow left leaning friends. Her story to understand the facts of the pandemic leads her on a journey I am certain she would not have signed up for. Courage and justice propel her forward, all while lamenting the loss of personal beliefs and trust in governing authorities. Tenderly she shares her pain as a woman, daughter, wife, mother, journalist, and Citizen. Unfurling the deep wounds of Covid are not inevitably from the physical disease SARS CoV-19 but the psychological attack on our nations values, integrity, and future as a free society. This is a must read for all as a source of truth and encouragement to honor God’s command to fight evil and seek good.

Perfect Account Of What We Had & What We Lost

This book will stand as the definitive historical account of the past two years. I am incapable of describing the heart-wrenching prose - you have to hear for yourself the before and after portrait she paints of NYC. Even more touching is the image of the faces of children pre & post mask - DEVASTATING to everyone but the monsters who visit this evel on the innocents. Thank you Naomi.

Important information

I guess hell has frozen over, because there are now two “progressives” with whom I agree, at least when it comes to the whole COVID-19 scam. What I knew instinctually, Naomi Wolfe articulates in a way I never could. With plenty of experts to back up her analysis, as well as plain common sense, she illustrates a government inbred with big tech, corporate media and pharmaceutical giants to undo a nation. Read this book and Robert F. Kennedy’s The Real Dr. Fauci, and do your own research. You’ll be glad you did.

WE OWE IT TO ALL THE CHILDREN TO READ THIS BOOK

Thank you Naomi for giving this book to the world. You have helped me fill in the holes of my knowledge regarding the last two plus years. My husband almost died from strokes he suffered as a result of the “COVID VACCINE” and now has permanent brain damage. I know so many others that are dead or injured by this experiment on humanity. I watched many people that I respected succumb to the fear mongering. Thankfully, I found support amongst many others who would not be silenced, as our fundamental rights were being stripped away. When others told me to drop it, I told them that we have to fight back for the children. And now I watch people take to the street over Roe v Wade, with “my body my choice” signs waving over their heads. I can’t help but be bothered by the total hypocrisy that many of these same people had harshly condemned those of us who, for our own personal reasons, didn’t want to inject an experimental substance into our bodies. Of course we didn’t trust the government agencies, Especially after they kept banning all the therapeutics, even though they had shown remarkable success in curing COVID. Not to mention the harassment to so many brave individuals, like yourself, that continue to speak out against this tyranny!!

Headline not optional

Would prefer a Naomi narration but she's a very busy lady and the gent did a fine job. Enjoy her segments on WarRoom so I picked up her book. I appreciate it wasn't written in a dry technical style, % ratios etc.
It takes courage to let go of this world, but once you do you realize the world is overwhelmingly filled with insane NPCs hiding in plainsight..family, friends, coworkers, sigh. Unfortunately no amount of Light can free them, until they want to be freed. Hopefully they find this, and other sources, when they're ready to be free.
Godspeed Naomi
