.".. a book which has the excitement of a thriller with the benefit of being factual. This is real-life (as opposed to "reality") Freemasonry. And it's a great story!"--Jim Tresner 33? Grand Cross, Book Review Editor, The Scottish Rite Journal ."..highly-readable and down-to-earth. Backed up by much scholarly research, Kinney methodically examines, and then busts common myths about Masons."--Boing Boing "For the history buff or even the student or teacher looking for a one-volume source, this book is probably all they'll ever need to understand the world of the Freemasons. Recommended."--Library Journal XPress "This should be the first book anyone reads about Freemasonry. Even those who know a lot about it will benefit from the broad and generous perspective that the founder of "Gnosis Magazine" brings to it."--Joscelyn Godwin, Colgate University.
