Linda No, it is not an easy read, but the information one gains is worth the time and effort required to read the rather long and detailed book.

There are plenty of books out there focused on shadow organizations supposedly controlling the world economy and governments, but this book (most focusing on groups going back as far as ancient Egypt) blames it on the worship of Isis.

This odd assertion is heavily documented with a remarkable perception of historical events, personages, and location. There is the inevitable accusation against Freemasonry, the unsurprising blame at the Roman Church, and the inclusion of inference that there was a
The Catholic Church: Evil; Gnostics/Cathars: Good. Revealed Truth: Evil; Relativism: Good. Conservatism: Evil; Liberalism: Good. Christianity: Evil; Islam: not too bad. Freemasons were behind the French and American revolutions. Freemasons were inspired by Egyptian lore. Egyptian monuments are built according to certain plans and ratios. Washington DC is built according to Masonic principles, which is in turn based on Egyptian principles.[return][return]There you have it: Hancock's The Master Ga ...more

The book started out strong... and there's nary a mention of the Masons for quite some time. But then the authors begin to travel the same ground trodden recently be so many others, and the promised revealing of the "Master Game" is an empty one. Much is suggested and hinted at, but nothing is ultimately revealed or "Unmasked".

Whoa.. Very interesting and detailed book on the evolution of Christianity across the world, the incorporation of Egyptian beliefs/monuments in past & modern times and how this may all time in to secret societies, most importantly the infamous Freemasons. I found it fascinating and one of the more logical accounts on a society very few truly understand. I suggest you take a pen and pad with you on this journey, take notes and come to your own conclusion..

very well written book, imo...traced the evolution of the elites from Alex the Great all the way to the present...i found it fascinating....the Inquisition the Knights Templar and more....good job by a great author and researcher.....the Illuminati traced back and if one is open minded, one can see where the reptilians are present..heavy read...

I already read this under it's original title - TALISMAN ... a little sneaky trying to slip this one out again without letting the reader know it's a re=issue.
Having read books by both authors, this one is pretty rambling, yet still has some interesting information, if you like that kind of thing.
