Did you know? * Freemasonry's first American lodge included a young Benjamin Franklin among its members. * The Knights Templar began as impoverished warrior monks then evolved into bankers. * Groom Lake, Dreamland, Homey Airport, Paradise Ranch, The Farm, Watertown Strip, Red Square, "The Box," are all names for Area 51. An indispensable guide, Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies connects the dots and sets the record straight on a host of greedy gurus and murderous messiahs, crepuscular cabals and suspicious coincidences. Some topics are familiar--the Kennedy assassinations, the Bilderberg Group, the Illuminati, the People's Temple and Heaven's Gate--and some surprising, like Oulipo, a select group of intellectuals who created wild formulas for creating literary masterpieces, and the Chauffeurs, an eighteenth-century society of French home invaders, who set fire to their victims' feet.… (mer)

Excellent if you like reading a book that sounds more list-like than cohesive story. It wasn't satisfying. But it's more of an overview anyway, something to pique your curiosities and nudge you to go do more research on your own. ( )

The lengthy title and subtitle of Arthur Goldwag's book, "Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies: The Straight Scoop on Freemasons, The Illuminati, Skull and Bones, Black Helicopters, The New World Order, and many, many more," belies the brevity with which he addresses most of the myriad subjects between the book's covers. It's true even a mildly avid researcher can find on the Internet or in a public library or well-stocked bookstore vast amounts of exhaustively detailed material devoted to each of the subjects Goldwag surveys in his book. This is the advantage, rather than disadvantage, of Goldwag's approach. Goldwag's book supplies only the tantalizing breadcrumbs. He leaves it for the reader to follow the trail if she's hungry to find more information on the matters that interest her, many of which she may never had known of before exploring Goldwag's work. Goldwag's writing is savvy, crisp and clean, often tongue-in-cheek, and he's not afraid to voice his personal opinion on some of the wackier Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies featured in his book. It's a quick, informative and entertaining read, which I believe is exactly what the author intended. ( )

If you find this kind of madness to be fun and interesting then you should get this book. If you don't then this won't change your mind.

This is effectively an encyclopaedia of madness with so many repeating themes that you might think no ever learns anything in this world.

Great fun apart from the bits were there are mass suicides, murders, prejudice and horror.

A great buy for any gullible relatives. ( )

An excellent look at the many quirky, loony, and outright crazy theories espoused by people on all sides of the political spectrum. A great read if you're, like me, interested in the lunatic fringe of the world simply for the laughs their theories bring. Comes with a free aluminum foil deflector beanie! ( )

An exploration of cults, conspiracies & secret societies. While not covering all of the subject material, as that would require multi-volume encyclopedias, the author provides enough to see the mindset of those people. ( )

Now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
