A thought provoking read...
on August 22, 2013
Upon purchasing the book, instantly the attractive cover design and stylish parchment-stlye pages are appealing in a puerile fashion, but that didn't stop me...I'm only nineteen! The book is extremely interesting. With minimal knowledge of the Masons but a huge interest in it's secrecy and history, I found this book interesting, albeit simultaneously dubious. I didn't take any of the facts as actuality, but just read them with interest.
The writer seems inexpert in writing, but does a nice job. It must be understood that these are the authors ideas and opinions, and at no point states that his writings are fact. It should also be noted that he (rather obviously) is NOT a Freemason, himself.
I've noticed many low ranked reviews for this book, each of which I read and each of which seemed to be written by a Mason, I am no Mason, but find it compelling that they each deny any that this book holds any truth. This could be taken two ways: They speak honestly...or, the more interesting and captivating answer, is that these men are plainly denying their secrets. If I were a part time magician to pay my college fees (which I was), I would give poor reviews to those who spoil the secret of my tricks and illusions openly on Youtube, as I would take it as an offence. I'm afraid this answer only causes more interest for myself, but I accept that I will never know the truth. Unless the rare chance arises that I may be worthy to join. But for me, not knowing, only enhances my thirst for more knowledge. A thirst of which I happily attempt to appease.
