Here, for the first time, is a complete history of the world based on the beliefs and writings of secret societies, researched with the help of an initiate of more than one secret society.

From the occult roots of science to the esoteric motives behind American foreign policy, this fascinating history shows that the basic facts of human existence on this planet can be viewed from many very different angles. And once our viewpoint has been altered, we will see that secret philosophies are encoded everywhere around us - in great art and literature, in the arrangement of the pips in an apple, in the names of the days of the week, even in the very stories we tell our children.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CHE Sadaphal | 2/20/2014

    " Anyone who reads this book must approach it with an open mind, especially those with a strong religious foundation. The text basically takes all the basic tenets of our world from biblical creation to mythology to the present and exposes the "secret" meanings and "real" origins behind it all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brett | 2/6/2014

    " People were unicorns. Adam and eve were vegetables. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 2/1/2014

    " Especially loved the begining. will reread. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vicki Mullen | 1/16/2014

    " This book is really weird so far, but I'm pushing through. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tom | 12/13/2013

    " This book would never be confused with scholarship. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 William Blake | 11/17/2013

    " Gave up after about 100 pages. I felt I learned nothing, and could hope to penetrate no further into the nearly unreadable prose. I hope that this appeals to someone, but it's unquestionably not for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yasser Abdel rahman | 11/13/2013

    " If you are a fan of the secret soceities, this is you indispensable book to read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robert | 11/9/2013

    " Complete and utter bullshit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morganna | 11/7/2013

    " I'm a sucker for conspiracy theories and secret societies. I don't believe them but I find the theories and the fact that other people believe them fascinating. I found the book very entertaining, especially when he warned conservative Christians that they may want to stop reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly Carroll | 10/30/2013

    " This book scared the bejesus out of me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 10/21/2013

    " Provided amusing and thought-provoking ideas. However, it felt as if Booth was trying to disprove one set of religous beliefs by passionately explaining others. Enjoyed opening up my mind to alternative thinking but found the book over-all repetitive and devoid of fact. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrian | 6/13/2013

    " this book has taught me much on the meanings of many things "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacy | 3/30/2013

    " Poorly researched, and poorly written claptrap. What a bunch of shit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Ahearn | 2/17/2013

    " An entertaining break from rationality. Would have been twice as good at half the length. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/29/2013

    " It's not often that an author allows Americans to see the world through someone else's eyes, but this is exactly what Mark Booth does in The Secret History of the World. It is a fascinating look at knowledge that does not show up in the American curriculums of institutions of learning "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/13/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book, though I don't 'buy' all of it. I don't think it was the author's intention, however, so it doesn't color my rating. Lots of research and knowledge here, and I loved the ability to look at life in a different way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katrin | 10/15/2012

    " This is a book that's fun but definitely for crackpots and conspiracy-theory nuts. Get your tinfoil hat out and enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Kublai Khan | 9/21/2012

    " An excellent introductory to the thinking, beliefs & history of secret societies. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark | 8/15/2012

    " I learned from this book just how gullible supposedly educated people can be. This is utter and useless dross. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RevBrother | 3/10/2012

    " I thought this guy offered an interesting perspective. Apparently it's like the Transformers: more than meets the eye. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Logan | 11/29/2011

    " Mostly a rehash of previously covered esoteric topics for me personally. Really not a lot new ground covered here, but it is highly readable and would make a good introductory to occult and hidden history. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 May | 5/16/2011

    " The title is interesting but somehow if your are not western it's kinda sound strange to you. Although I did learned a lot from the book, but it's ever emphasizes on the secret society makes me wonder, "Is this part of a propaganda for me to join the society?" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grace | 5/9/2011

    " I mostly used this a sleeping aide. Not the most coherent book and no citations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nickputs | 5/2/2011

    " Meh... weird and from a weird point of view, going against people that "don't try and understand the mythical" but doing a similar thing. Interesting though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Verity - Lilolia | 12/11/2010

    " I loved this book - it was far reaching and eye opening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 7/7/2010

    " If you don't have a very open mind I wouldn't bother with this book. There are some VERY controversial theories presented. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonny | 5/16/2010

    " Not as ridiculous as it should be, and pretty well researched. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zsu07 | 5/11/2010

    " Found the content of the book really confusing. Gave up about a quarter into the book as I can't make sense of the content. Not a book for everyone! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ken | 10/2/2009

    " The first half of the book was pretty good. The second half was written by Dan Brown I think. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trak | 6/9/2009

    " this book was interesting but like a lot of these types of books there are massive assumptions made on very little fact. Once you start questioning the basis of these 'facts' in the book you can drive semi-trailers through the holes.
