3 stars for entertainment value, can't go any higher, because I have actually done other research on the Illuminati. His account of the life of Pythagoras was almost perfectly plagiarized from Manly P. Hall. EXCEPT a very important part- his death. According to Hall, Pythagoras was either murdered by being burned alive along with his followers, or possibly escaping the blaze with the assistance of his followers, whom he left behind to burn, later dying of a "broken heart". No doubt, the author (who ironically keeps us in the dark of his true identity by using Adam Weishaupt's name instead of his own LOL) took some creative license, inserting a crucifixion and anticipated resurrection in order to confuse Christians. I'm surprised Hall didn't do that!

I'd also like to make a comparison to another book, Code of the Illuminati, by Abbe Barreul (Also available for Kindle, $2.99 I think). It was written after the dispersion of the Bavarian Illuminati, [which was founded by Weishaupt in 1776, and only lasted 10 years, and in 1786, he was banished from Bavaria and lived in Gotha, where he wrote 5 books revealing the truth about the Illuminati] (I am looking for English translations, none available as far as I know) Anyway, this book was written before Weishaupt died, and was an anti-Illuminati expose, which detailed each of the 10 degrees, and also blasted the group, citing purported "private letters" etc. I find it very interesting to point out that for all of the info (And I suspected while reading that this book was commissioned by the Catholic Church and much hideousness was added for color) NOT ONE SINGLE MENTION of Abraxas (alternately Abrasax) was made. I wonder how this pseudo-Weishaupt would account for that? A complete damning expose possibly by the murderous Catholic Church, definitely by a hater of the order and the founder, and no mention of the "pure deity" they supposedly worshiped! And also, the church didn't even murder him, only banished him. The leader of the Illuminati treated better than a Jew or a Templar. Hmmmmmmmm...... Maybe they knew he wasn't so bad after all? They just wanted him to stop? Think about it.

If you read this book, or any others in this series, do so with the same kind of faith you would put into a book about Cthulhu. Or else, I'd have to quote the real Adam Weishaupt- Oh, mortal man, is there nothing you can't be made to believe?

Mike Hockney, whose listed as the book's "editor", somehow managed to get a great deal of his books listed under the authorship of "Adam Weishaupt", the original founder of the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati. I hope I don't have to explain why this infuriates me, but I will. THIS BOOK WAS NOT WRITTEN BY ADAM WEISHAUPT, DESPITE THE FACT THAT HIS NAME IS IN BOLD CAPITALIZED PRINT ON THE FRONT COVER. Why would Adam Weishaupt's name be on the cover when it was really "Mike Hockney" who wrote it? I can only come to one conclusion, and that's that Mike Hockey is a conman -- a fraud, if you will, whose exploiting shady advertising techniques in order to manipulate people into buying his books thinking they're getting something that they're really not. That's all there really is to say. If anyone is interested in making a rational, scholarly, and more importantly -- authentic inquiry into what Adam Weishaupt said and thought, what his Illuminati believed and what impact they had in 18th century Europe, they're far better options. First, I would recommend that you pick up a copy of "Perfectibilists: The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati" by Terry Melanson. This will provide you with a broad, but nevertheless simplistic historical overview of Weishaupt and the Illuminati. For a more in-depth investigation into the ritual/doctrine aspect of the Illuminati, then Jeva Singh-Anand, Josef Wages, and Richard Markner's book "The Secret School of Wisdom: The Authentic Ritual and Doctrines of the Illuminati" would be a solid choice (currently available on Amazon UK, coming soon to Amazon US). In all honesty, anything is better then what you're going to get with Mike Hockney, who I believe has a lot of explaining to do (as does Amazon for allowing him to commit his shady practices). Thank you for reading and God speed.

My book club read this book to learn about The Illuminati. I'm not sure I learned much. The book is poorly written (who whoever it is that really wrote the book); the writer repeats himself ad infinitum, wanders off the immediate, just-introduced subject, and throws in references without explanation. There must be better material out there, especially for those of us who have little history of exploration of the topic.

That said, the second star reflects that the book inspired a splendid discussion at the book club meeting!

I started reading this book because I wanted "factual" knowledge of the illuminati and reading this book i found exactly what i was searching for! This book has everything that is necessary to know about the organization and it answers all of the major Q&A's that people ask of it. However, As you read on you'll notice adam w. Can come across as a little dogmatic in his beliefs but it's definitely worth reading. After reading this book I was defiantly more accustomed to why they do what they do and I'm still reading even more books about the illuminati.

Like so many people, I believed the hype about how terrible the Illuminati is without knowing anything about them. Then I bought this book so I could find the specifics of their terrible ways. Imagine my surprise to find that I think a lot like they do. I now would like to see the Illuminati in charge of the world. I am confident it would be better than the mess we have going now.

This book is not for the average conspiracy theorist. I love how informal this book really is on the subject. Rather than focusing on a conspiracy theory, it takes you on a historical and informative journey about the Illuminati. 2 thumbs up!

Still can't tell if the spiritual effects of reading this were good or bad. Talks about a mathematic grand creator not Lucifer

If you are big picture knowledge seeker and would like to understand more about what is going on with this World as it is the case with me, then you should read this.
This book was surprise to me, I expected something completely different when I decided to study more Illuminati subject.

"We must destroy the current power structure" - Karl Marx (paraphrased). I have also heard in modern "progressive" writing that "whites and males should give up their power". It's interesting they mention the Rothschields as an enemy in passing. Yet overall there is no mention that the current emerging world order is totally run by Jews. Adam Weishaupt was a Jew.

Google "The Frankfurt School". The goal of Marxism (also the modern form known as "critical theory") is an uneding criticism of the current establishment. As a result the weakened establishment would be replaced by a new "kosher" elite. Many members of the masons, illuminati etc. on the lower levels are not aware that they are doing the bidding of powerful Jewish families (like the Rothschields).

I agree with the general ideas of establishing a meritocracy. Yet some of the writing this illuminati group has released claims that they are against "altruism" and don't believe in taxing the rich for example, then other writings are released which claims they are against the wealthy accumulating power. Seemingly contradictory.

I would be cuatious about any group that is based on *hate*. Hate the rich, hate the welfare blood suckers etc, just join us let us tell you what to do (without knowing why you do it) and we'll protect you from the enemy.

The European royal families have been mostly toppled, yet are still under attack in this book. We should ask ourselves who runs the Federal Reserve, why is APAC the biggest lobby in the U.S., why does a private Jewish organization (ADL) train and advise the FBI and law enforcement, why is racism legalized in Israel, why is the Federal Reserve (and most national banks world wide) owned by private families etc.

If they were really against a priveleged elite they would certainly be against the increasing favoritism and wealth being concentrated into the hands of a few (Ashkenazim Jewish families). Why does the organization lie to its own members and hide its leadership from its own members? The only way to climb to the highest ranks of this organiztion would be to have Jewish ancestry. It is a bit scary how well organized and massive these supremacist groups are which plot and scheme behind closed doors. And they have the audacity to claim to be pro democracy and defending the little guy... well if you believe this... you have bigger problems to deal with
