This should be required for all new Freemasons!

I learned so much history from this book! It was more educational then I could have ever hopped for. This book is great for Freemasons of many years, new Freemasons, Freemasons looking to join other Masonic groups or just the general public who want to know more about freemasonry or for people who may want to join a lodge.

Full of facts

Was unsure about purchasing this book but from the first chapter it fascinated me. So much information on the history of England, Scotland France and America. The sight down side is that it's very American oriented but if you can get passed that you should love it.
The author has done a good job of giving loads of information but without giving away the secrets of Freemasonry.
Think that it's one I will be listening to again.

If your from Australia

If your from Australia please study Freemasonry history in Australia before Freemasons for Dummies. This a fantastic book on what Freemasonry is at it's core with great US and some European history.
