I had read articles here and there, of course had read Anonymous Physicist's pieces on the assassination, and had seen Stone's "JFK" a few times. But I had never really read a book on the event.
So now I am reading Noel Twyman's book "Bloody Treason", which had been recommended by Anonymous Physicist. The book had been out of press, and used copies cost like $200. But now it is available on Amazon kindle, and I'm devouring it. It is excellent.
Also, I've also started going through the Zapruder film a bit.
Check out frame 312 (right before the head shot)

Look at the driver Greer's head-- how far around he's turned. But look at his body. It's totally unnatural-- there is no way he could turn his head that far with his hands in front of him like that.
The importance of this is that Greer of course, delivered the fatal shot at that moment (and the consequences are seen in frame 313
), but many have argued-- "well look at his hands there on the wheel of the car". Except those hands must be fake-- painted in-- since no one can turn their neck around like that without moving their body too! At the same time they painted his hands in front of him, they must have erased his arm raised up, that was holding the pistol.
So, more evidence of Zapruder fakery, and an important example of it too.
UPDATE: If this blowup of frame 312 is to be believed, then Greer's body was slightly turned to the left, making his head turn more natural.

But it's a big if, as to how well this represents a real scene in time.
Doesn't it look like there is something in Greer's left hand? Something brown?
I still think the head turn is very odd for the driver to make, and especially in that situation and with the timing where the head goes back exactly at the moment of the fatal head shot...
I mean, if you're a secret service agent driving the president, and there is an attack, the last thing you want to do is take your concentration of the road in front of you, and take a hand off the wheel and make a body turn... unless you're up to no good. This is especially true since he had an agent next to him who could have told him what was going on.
