From the Back Cover

What secrets lie at the heart of America?

Discover the hidden reality behind Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol . . . and America itself. Just as there is only one Dan Brown, there is also only one secrets team that has achieved worldwide bestselling success by exposing the truth beneath Brown’s bestselling novels. Dan Burstein and Arne de Keijzer have gathered together world-class authorities—from scientist Richard Dawkins, noetics expert Lynne McTaggart, and religious scholar Karen Armstrong to journalist Jeff Sharlet (author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at theHeart of American Power), mathematician and science historian Amir Aczel, FBI consultant Michael Barkun, 33° Freemason Arturo de Hoyos, and a host of renowned philosophers, symbologists, code breakers, art historians, writers, thinkers, and experts on the occult—to give readers the essential tools to understand the conspiracies, codes,cutting-edge science, cultural controversies, and suppressed history at the center of The Lost Symbol . . . and the very founding of the United States of America.

Which Founding Fathers were members of secret societies?

What is the true background of the Ancient Mysteries?

Does The Lost Symbol have a hidden religious agenda?

What is the actual role of Freemasons in American history?

What do the hidden codes embedded in the novel tell us?

Though there has been a siginificant gap since the publishing of Dan Brown's previous book, "The Da Vinci Code", and Burstein's "The Secrets of the Code", Daniel Burstein's "Secrets of The Lost Symbol" has arrived right on the heels of Brown's latest offering.

Once again, a comprehensive group of authors works as an ensemble cast to produce a nearly encyclopedic analysis of a Dan Brown work for our betterment. Each of the authors has penned an essay on their own particular area of expertise, as a leading expert in the field, with the possible exception of James Sanborn, as the sculptor of KRYPTOS, located inside the security of the CIA's Langley center, since he is not only the leading expert, but the "keeper of the 'keys'" as well.

At the other edge, author Elonka Dunin [Nola K(ay)e] does an exceptional job of defining KRYPTOS from the public's view, as she is probably the leading repository of KRYPTOS knowledge outside the mind of Mr. Sanborn!

This book is highly recommended to those who want to understand how "The Lost Symbol" relates to our real world.

itisn't often that you read a bestseller and then buy a book that explains the bestseller and that book is so much better than the original. but it happens over and over when you read any "secrets of the code..." books by dan burstein and arne de keijzer. get on the bandwagon and buy the book "secrets of the lost symbol". this book is better than dan brown's original book.

Format: Hardcover
There is a lot that is right with this book, but there is a lot that is wrong, too. It reflects the "party line" so to speak, acknowledging only very traditional masculine Freemasonry and ignoring the fact that Freemasonry is not the monolithic organization that they would wish it to be. In particular, I'm referring to the insult by Arturo de Hoyos against Bishop C.W. Leadbeater, who was himself a 33rd degree Freemason. In the chapter by de Hoyos, he calls the works of Leadbeater "pseudo history." I suspect Leadbeater's greatest crime was that he was a Co-Mason, actually practiced the equality that all Freemasons pay lip service to but few actually practice. By excluding or ridiculing the rich palate that is Freemasonry in all its incarnations, the book is very limited. Some chapters are very good as far as they go, but the book could have been so much richer it it had been more inclusive. Dan Brown is clearly aware of the more esoteric side of Freemasonry, and the book falls short by having much of it explained by those who are not esoteric practitioners.
