It was only recently that I came across the work of Philip Gardener and after listening to his interview on Red Ice Radio it was apparent that I was listening to an extremely wise man so I decided to read his work. It was a toss up between The Shining Ones and his previous work Gnosis but I decided to go with the most recently written book as I wanted to find out the most cutting edge knowledge first. I was not disappointed! This book contains so much information it is almost overwhelming but it keeps you interested all the way through. After all, thousands of years of history is hard to condense into a few hundred pages, especially when connections need to be made between all of the ancient civilizations and secret societies!

If you have an open mind then this book will be extremely helpful to you in furthering your understanding of the truth. If you are closed minded this book will most likely seem that the Authors are making connections that don't exist or seem to be mere 'coincidences'. History is not complete and the truth is distorted, after all "The winners write history..", but there have been people throughout history who have tried to pass on the ancient wisdom to those who are worthy of attaining it.

The question is, how do you pass on ancient knowledge and wisdom through the ages without it falling into the wrong hands? This book comprehensively answers that question - by creating sufficiently complicated symbology, riddles, ciphers and the all important secret society. What Gardiner and Osborne show in The Shining Ones is quite incredible and the evidence is compelling. At some point we have to realise that life is a puzzle that is waiting to be solved, one piece at a time, and it is far more interesting than most people believe or can even conceive of.

I tend to spend most of my time reading books that are fiction. I'll even admit, that I find most other book dry and lack substance. I first saw this book in Water Stones, with a friend. I my surprise, she bought the book as a gift for me.

Anyway, I started reading this book with an open mind, deciding to give it a chance. What happened was a little bit of a shock. Firstly, putting it down was a real challenge, similar to when I read fiction. Secondly, it grabbed me a way that was truly electric.

This book start by lay the foundation of religion, knowledge and various methods of meditation. But it was done in a way that was far beyond being preachy or patronising. It leads the reader down a path of exploration and intrigue. It provides a basis of knowledge that is credible. It has sources of where the authors have gathered thier information from; and I've even looked into some of those very sources - they do check out.

As a result of reading this book I found that I had a greater understanding about the meaning of many aspects: beliefs, religion, meditation, male and female, how the mind works, how myth even work.

Anyone who wants to broaden their own horizons of knowledge and understanding should read this book, and any others that are closely related.

You'll be surprised what you will learn. And perhaps like me, it'll open new pathways in you mind for greater insight.

Enjoy...

The book covers a lot of ground in a lucid, easy to read manner. Symbolic, social, cultural and religious connections are made, threads pulled together and, in places, left tantalisingly open.
I finished this book and am now re-reading it, looking for meanings I feel I must've missed. The author in fact alludes to an encoded deeper meaning within the text - an assertion seemingly endorsed by some of the reviews on this site.
I'm hooked.
For those with an open mind, take a look at this book. For those with eyes to see, there may be deeper rewards.
I think we have not heard the last of this author. I can't wait for 'The Serpent Grail' and 'Gnosis' (plus the planned documentary!).
P.S. If anyone's willing to help me with the code, please contact me. Thanks!

I note from the comments made about this book so far that the reviews have been varied. I believe the reason is simple. Gardiner alludes to the fact that he has embedded a code within the book in-order to release the information, which otherwise would have got him into serious trouble. Well quite simply, if you look hard enough and apply gematria to the book, you discover a pattern (which explains why some of the grammer may be a bit poor). Once I had discovered this pattern I tried numerous code/cypher devices and found that the Atbash cypher actually uncovered the names, locations and dates of actual events and people who I then discovered were in secret societies. I am not going to reveal what I have discovered, because NOW I UNDERSTAND why Gardiner didn't. But amazingly and incredibly complicated this book may be with it's code, it was worth the effort for me.

If you are only buying one book on the esoteric origins of mankind and the spirit world, it has to be this. It s full of valuable information not to be found any where else with reference to guide the "seeker after truth" to other material. Most of the references I tried to source were easily and cheaply found on Amazon.
