all the wisdom of the ancients in one volume. its a great book, but make sure you get an edition that has the colored plates and all the illustrations, it makes a world of difference and well worth the added cost. i know other people like it too, my 1st two copies were stolen, hopefully by someone who really got into the info provided in this book

This book has a good general introduction into the systems of Western occultism, or what some call, the Western Esoteric Tradition. It does bear some of the markings of its time, however: for example, the other believes in the Baconian theory about Shakespeare, claiming that William Shakespeare lacked the proper education and could not have written the plays attributed to him. A whole book could be written on that topic, so I am not going to demonstrate the theory's flaws here. He also, as a Freemason, seeks to link every single esoteric tradition to modern Freemasonry. It makes the book come off more as a conspiracy theory than anything else; Freemasonry, without a doubt, has absorbed a great deal from the traditions preceding it, but they are not explicit, strong links. In reverse, as well, the book tries to link all traditions back to Atlantis; the same criticism applies: any possible links, to a potentially non-existent continent, are tenuous. Read this book if you are interested in a general history of the occult, with focus on individual systems, or even if you just need a little inspiration for writing, which is why I bought it.

A very thought provoking read. Manly P. Hall was truly illuminated.

Hearsay writing; no documentation. Some will like it, some will not. A reference work of some value, I suppose.

Who wrote about the masons and made millions? Oh yes, and stuff about the vatican and just keeps on going... well... if you know NOTHING about the masons EVERYTHING IS IN HIS BOOK RE; SIGNS, SIGNALS, SECRET ORGS... and what was this about all the research (Mr. Brown!) Also, when I was very, very young and he was very, very old -- Not Mr. Brown -- but the author, I heard him speak in L.A. Fabulous mind, outstanding library still standing... visit it some time. It's called the Philosophical Society on Wilshire near downtown...

If you dabble in arcane and esoteric knowledge, this will be a good book to add to your library.
