In Under The Radar 537-555, Boyd Anderson explores many conspiracy theories. On March 8, 2014, while watching the news about the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, Boyd thinks back to July 2008, when an acquaintance, Thomas Lily, handed him pages of the New World Order's (NWO) 7-year plan. The plan contained information about bitcoin, ethereum, Brexit, the 2016 USA election, and more. Thomas also mentioned his involvement with a Malaysian Airlines pilot. Boyd initially thought it was a scam, but as he watched the news, he realized that Thomas was serious. As the rest of the plan unfolded, Boyd began carrying out a research on all the people involved, how they executed their plan, and what they stood to gain by executing the plan. He presents the product of his research in this book.

The author starts by giving us one of the many definitions of the word "Trumpence" (a portmanteau of the United States of America's President and Vice President's names; "Trump" and "Pence"): "The return on investment of a con, bribe, theft or fraud." This set the tone for what to expect from the book. The author uses a clear unambiguous language, and he explains terms that may be strange to readers. This helped me to easily follow what he was saying throughout the book.

The believability of this book was one of the first things I was concerned about before reading, as most books like this tend to make outrageous claims with little or no supporting evidence. However, Boyd includes a lot of references to back up any claims he made. He also included pictures he took with some of the people involved and some emails that were sent to him. The author's inclusion of himself into some of the stories also convinced me to take him more seriously. It felt like he was an insider giving information to the readers.

Boyd also talks about the involvement of several popular people and groups in executing the NWO's plan, including President Trump, President Putin, President Erdogan, the Illuminati, the Rothschild family, the Jesuits, the Swiss Jews, and the Bilderberg group among others. There were times when I felt that the names the author included were too much, and I even forgot a few of them. One thing I didn't like about this book was when the author tried to show the significance of certain numbers in history and to the NWO's plan, like 666, 555, 17, and 777. While it was believable initially, it started to seem far-fetched as the author continued. For example, when showing the significance of the number 17, the author said that "The Pentateuch contains 5852 verses (or 17x7x7x7+7+7+7 verses)." At this point, it felt like the author was trying to force things to make what he was saying more believable, and he didn't need to do so.

Under The Radar 537-555 is not well edited. While the grammatical errors I found were just minor errors and not difficult to navigate through, they occurred too frequently. Missed definite articles made up most of the errors. There were also times when the font suddenly changed, and I found it distracting.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Under The Radar 537-555. It really opened my eyes to a lot of things that may be happening in the world today, and it was a bit scary. I can imagine how much research Boyd must have put into making this book, and I appreciate his effort. The errors I listed earlier ensure that I can't give this book the maximum rating. That being said, I rate Under The Radar 537-555 3 out of 4 stars. The information the author presents and the way he presents the information prevents me from rating the book any lower. I would recommend this book to fans of conspiracy nonfiction. Some Christians and Jews may find some of the book's contents offensive.

Although I am not a fan of conspiracy theories, your review made me interested in this book. The author must have put a lot of effort in research and I think it paid because a reader like you thought his claims are believable.

While I don’t always believe everything I see, conspiracy theories tend to interest me enough to read or watch the material. I too find unintentional, mismatching fonts to be distracting, but I’m not sure it would keep me from reading this book. I am interested in finding out more about the significance of certain numbers in history, as discussed by the author in this book.

It's kind of interesting. I believe in conspiracy theories when it comes to certain things. The pharmaceutical companies, for example. I have a feeling there's a cure of cancer out there, but they don't want you to find it because they make way too much money. But, this kind of thing? I guess I'm hypocritical that way. Nevertheless, it doesn't interesting me, though your review was kind of captivating. Thanks.

It sounds as if the author backs up the theories well, even if he takes it a bit too far sometimes with the 5852 verses in Pentatuch - was that supposed to have something to do with flight MH17? Excellent review!

Thanks for the honesty and the details in your review. It's probably not a book I would have thought of reading, but I actually find it intriguing now, and would be more likely to read it.
