After I was intitiated into my Blue Lodge and started working towards becoming a Master Mason, many of the brothers suggested this book would be a helpful resource. It has been a great help to understanding the lessons and ceremonies I've participated in. It has also been a great resource for me to explain the history of Freemasonry to my wife when she asks questions. The stories and explanations are written in a fun and easy to remember fashion.

I found Freemasons for Dummies to be an excellent resource for both individuals familiar with Freemasonry and those who are not. The author passes along a great deal of knowledge in the book, while in keeping with a humorous tone which makes for an entertaining read. The only drawback I found is that the layout of the book is a bit dull, in keeping with the typical black and white ¿Dummies¿ book theme. Those interested in the subject should check out American Freemasonry by Mark Tabbert which is not meant to replace this book but rather serve as a companion - although that book sets the standard for the ideal mix of illustrative layout and text.

Whether you are interested in joining a Masonic Lodge, or just want to get the skinny of what being a Freemason is all about, I think that this book is a great resource. I bought this book right after I petitioned to join my local lodge, and it really gave me a good heads up on what kind of group I was joining. The format of the book goes from very basic to pretty in-depth, and is written by a very experienced and thoughtful member.

I read this book shortly after I petitioned my local lodge for membership. This book helped me understand the structure of freemasonry without makeing me feel like I was 'cheating' my own initiation experience. The sections on freemason myths and conspiracy were also very entertaining to read!

This is a great book for the Mason and non-Mason. Mainly, it clears up all the confusion with the controversies of the fraternity. APM

I'm still reading this book but, I have learned quite a bit and find the Masons very interesting.
