    1. This book actually is a combination of 3 different texts from M.P. Hall. The first deals with the basic ideas of Freemasonry as reflected into the 3 Blue Lodge degrees, at least in some symbolic way. They are mostly a panegyric and battle-cry -type speech, almost a sermon, which will be familiar to readers of other Masonic writers such as Pike. Hall dispenses with any kind of hyper-detailed deconstruction and exhorts the readers to become 'true Masons' in spirit in various ways. TL;DR: The Lost [...]

    2. Hall is an excellent writer. How he wrote as insightfully, poetically and beautifully as he did, while not even a freemason is hard for me to understand. The first book was the best. followed by the second. By the third book, the magic was gone, and it was quite dry and boring. did more simming than reading. But the first book (essentially an archetypal explanation of one of the central legends of freemasonry) is very illuminating. good read.

    3. An excellent study by Hall. Here are the outlined ideology of Masonry and a history of the mystery schools. Most valuable however are the rites attributed to ancient Egypt as these provide a valuable insight into the likely origins of the mysteries and offer a clue as to the wisdom therein.

    4. An interesting read which provides some of the ideology behind freemasonry. Throughout the book, it prompted me to question myself and the direction I am heading. I enjoyed the opportunities of contemplation it allowed.

    5. An excellent book for Freemasons interested in the more esoteric aspects of The Craft. If possible, read it as you progress through the first three degrees for additional insight.

    6. This is not merely a book, but at least a guide to rediscovering the tools we have within each of us. "Discouragement and suffering too often brings down the temple, burying under its debris the true reason for being and the higher motives for living."

    7. Really great philosophical writing about the tenets of Freemasonry. I highlighted a lot of passages for myself. A must-read for any Mason!

    8. "Ignorance fears all things, falling, terror-stricken before the passing wind. Superstition stands as the monument to ignorance, and before it kneel all who realize their own weakness who see in all things the strength they do not possess""Every soul is engaged in a great work-the labor of personal liberation from the state of ignorance. The world is a great prison; its bars are the Unknown. And each is a prisoner until, at last, he earns the right to tear these bars from their moldering sockets [...]

    9. This book is a combination of several smaller books/pamphlets by the author, so some of the same ground is gone over twice. Frequently referred to in this edition is General Albert Pike, since I grew up in Arkansas, his name is familiar. There are schools, streets and state parks bearing his name throughout the state. In addition, Pike wrote "Morals and Dogma" which is also used by Hall as a reference and may provide further illumination on this interesting character. While the subject of Genera [...]

    10. Being new to the study of the more esoteric side of Freemasonry I really had no preconceptions about what to expect when reading this book.There were definitely times I thought to myself "Gee, this reads like NewAge (rhymes with sewage :)" but inevitably I would realize upon finishing the section that this was more commentary on my reaction to the writer's style than any actual content of the book.

    11. About 2/3 through. Actually am reading a compilation of three books by this author in one volume. Mixture of poetic beauty, mysticism, and historical research. Update: Finishing last pages. Well worth the read. The fascination of the initial book in the volume was hard to beat. Not for everyone, but I enjoyed the mysticism and poetic beauty that Hall put together during much of "The Freemasonry of the Egyptians" portion, and episodically in the later half of it.

    12. While this was an entertaining read, it inevitably leaves those of us without magical ways of thinking wishing we had spared ourselves the effort it took to read this asymetrical load of psycho-babble. Do yourself a favor: talk to an actual Freemason about his craft or join the local lodge to see what it is for yourself. You will most likely be a little disappointed.

    13. I haven't read it completely since the depth of the book requires to commit a lot of time which unfortunately I do not find in my daily routine :-) but I really admire the basic concepts of freemasonry that I have acquired and understood. It is beautiful and I believe if freemasonry is understood well and embraced, can change one's life.

    14. When I read this book I was ignorant of all the going ons in the supposedly secret societies that have existed over time. I was floored and amazed at the level of spirituality that the Freemasons were and are trying to achieve. I am not a freemason so I have no clue if any of it is true.

    15. I picked this book up because of my curiosity for secret spiritual socities, and this book is definitely spiritual. I was pleasantly surprised with the book's overall message. Keep an open mind, for those that are not spiritually inclined.

    16. So long as you take it as allegory and not history, it can be interesting. You have to be careful with Manly Hall though because he just makes stuff up and passes it off as truth. N.B. He wasn't even a Mason when he wrote this.

    17. Hall provides a useful set of insights into the first three degrees of Freemasonry. Freemasonry is without doubt the last surviving well-known source of the true secrets of this illusion and the book goes some way into explaining the meanings of rituals.

    18. To his credit, Manly P. Hall says to the uninitiated non-Mason this would be, as Shakespeare said, "Words, words, words." Succinctly sums it up. Pompous blathering that I read as research, or else I'd have skipped it.

    19. Insightful, eludes to freemasonry as a religionme author praises "black magic" and satanic ritual via Waite and Levi.

    20. "It is worse by far to know and not to do than never to have known at all.""He must search for the high things in lowly places and find the lowly things in high places."

    21. A mind needs to be opened to absorbed all that he shares within this book. Manly P. Hall does not just discuss Freemasonry, but of self-development and self-knowledge.

    22. A must-read for all FreemasonsManly P. Hall is one of the great philosophical lights of Freemasonry, and this book, while often mis-quoted, one of his most profound works.
