Overview

"Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead."

Did you know Pope John VIII was actually a woman? Or that the U.S. Government smashed a bacteria-laden lightbulb in a New York subway station in 1966 to see how long it would take to travel throughout the entire system? You will after reading the Book of Secrets. Everybody loves secrets and the world is full of them. And now the most interesting secrets are unleashed in Book of Secrets. Full of fascinating facts, this is one read you won't be able to put down!
The clandestine, the covert, the surreptitious, furtive, and hush-hush are all revealed. Government secrets, religious secrets, food secrets, economic secrets, sexual secrets, secret societies, secret recipes-they're all in here.

Within the pages of this book, one can find practical secrets revealed, such as how to guarantee a better seat on an airplane and how to win friends and influence people. Book of Secrets also contains some not-so-practical tidbits (all the more intriguing) such as famous American members of the Freemasons.

Each book is bound with an irrestistible black leatherette flexicover with ribbon marker.

Meet the Author

Essential Works is a book design, editing, and concept-creation company. In 2004 the company created the New York Times best-seller Hippie. In Fall 2005, the company produced Book of Secrets, Book of Lies, and the Inspiration series Madonna and Dylan for Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Malcolm Green (not his real name) is a journalist, author, and former employee of a Western government's secret service. At least, that's what he claims. He has worked with a number of top researchers, writers, and spies to collect the information that you'll find in this book. Malcolm lives in the London area, perhaps.

Editor Thomas Eaton studied history at Oxford and Cambridge Universities in the United Kingdom. After working in magazine publishing, he has spent the last few years writing quizzes for television and newspapers, including The Weakest Link, allowing him to indulge in his love of the trivial and the arcane. He is a leading member of the Society of Secrets.
