Full of facts

Was unsure about purchasing this book but from the first chapter it fascinated me. So much information on the history of England, Scotland France and America. The sight down side is that it's very American oriented but if you can get passed that you should love it.
The author has done a good job of giving loads of information but without giving away the secrets of Freemasonry.
Think that it's one I will be listening to again.

Excellent work

This is an amazing book. Not only for non masons, but as well for masons them selves. I am a Freemason from Wales and Latvia. The author managed to explain a lot of difficult questions. Like Freemasonic history and the conspiracies around it. Excellent explanation of different orders and how they are affecting the whole Freemasonry. Superb and simple explanation how the lodges are organised. I am very happy I bought this book
