"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.
