Certainly an interesting read, and the argument is laid out logically. With an open mind, many readers will be challenged.
The author makes his point in many different ways, patiently and exhaustively laying out his case, and is very unapologetic about it. He has names, dates, and organizations, and facts to back up his accusations. Though he quotes liberally from Albert Pike's "Morals and Dogma," he does not fixate on it and this is not just another anti-Mason hit piece. If you are politically liberal, anti-religion, or a Mason, this will rock your world, and you'd better listen. If in addition, you are one of those maladjusted, humorless people who goes through life looking for things to be offended at, don't buy this book.
I gave it four stars because (1) the editing is atrocious - Collins really needs to get his money back from the editor he hired, and (2) the author has a handful of favorite five-dollar words he uses over, and over, and over. . .
What I have found including that is many subjects that I have been interested in, but not known where to look, and didn't want to read whole books on, like the origins of communism in china, and the issues concerning russia, which is always fascinating.
plus, it is written in great "conspiracy" style, but backed by quotes and sourced well, so it's not a nut in the closet with a typewriter, lol.
the brothers are a great writing team, as one is more in the grand conspiratorial fashion, and the other is more straight ahead. the writings are paced well, so it kind of goes between the 2 styles of writing, keeping it fast paced to read for such heavy matter. Though I don't know if this book is for everyone, and being slanted in a religious way (though it really isn't the more I am reading it, but the whiff of that can turn off many atheist intellectuals), that aside, this is an incredible read that enlightens and entertains, and the things I am learning from this book is stuff I will find valuable for the rest of my life. make sure to get this one, there are copies selling for WAY TOO MUCH, and they aren't even the expanded editions!
