I just don't know. This is indeed a very interesting and fascinating piece of writing. IS IT FACT???? I JUST DON'T KNOW. However, Laurence Gardner doesn't normally write rubbish or lie, so I am very tempted to re-read the book and approach it from a different angle. If this is true, Wow. Another Wow for the Professor. This book as is all books written by Laurence Gardner needs to read and then re-read because you will be in shock, first time around. Before you say oh Rubbish, just think, for years you have been believing the lies and rubbish the various church's all over the world have fed you. For once open your hearts and minds and see where this leads you. Enlightening Facts.

I think Not bad is about as good as it gets for Laurence Gardners latest contribution to the Freemason debate. Whilst it is a clearly well researched book, with plenty of references to other works by eminent contributors, it doesn't actually offer a great deal of new evidence in support or against freemasonry, apart from some fairly fantastical theories about the 'lost' sectrets of the craft.
Not nearly as good as his other offerings but worth a read.

The first and most annoying thing about the book is the defensive tone throughout the entire text. Things like 'freemasonry is not a religion' and 'freemasonry is not a secret society, it is a secretive society'! The text makes several references to the Bible, Moses, Solomon, David, as well as stories from the Bible which are also mentioned in the Holy Quran and still keeps insisting that it is not a religion. Then why is the author referring to reiligeous texts!?

Second, if it is not a secret then why has the author made no efforts to disclose what freemasonry is about in essence? A lot of people will say there are chapters in the book about that. True, the author does talk about it without really saying much! It's pretty much the same old candy coated version that has been cirulated by other authors without adding any genuine insight as to what freemasonry is all about! The main reason behind that is... the author himself is a mason! (that's saying enough in itself!)

Thridly, the author dedicates chapters, which do not add to the subject of the book, to responding to conspiracy theorists and popular belief! Also, in doing so, the author doesn't really put up good arguements, he simply says that such things couldn't have been or are not possible given the circumstances at the time and such explanations, this is most evident when discussing Albert Pike, the seal on the dollar, and the accusation that freemasons are devil worshipers. Personally, when reading through these chapters I kept asking 'what on earth does this have to do with the lost secret!?' By the time you get to the end of the book and find what the lost secret is about you will realize even more how irrelevant those chapters were!

Fourthly, by the time I got to the final chapters and the so called "lost secret", the main thought that crossed my mind was 'did I actually waste my money and all this time reading this book to get to this!?'

So to all those reading this review I say... save your money or if you need to spend the money just pay someone to give you a good hard punch to the stomach... in the end the effects are the same! Nausea!!!

An interesting subject which remains an enigma. Gardner sheds nothing new on the subject, and make one wonder why men join the "craft".

This book is way too full of references rather than revelations.
