So I've perused and made plenty of edits and even questions. There were some questionable statements that I needed to verify before I started trusting ideas. Some of his perspective of course is rather "old' and in need of updating but reading his stuff "confirmed" some of my beliefs.

This was a terrible book. The information was inaccurate at best. It wasn't even consistently inaccurate throughout the book. One chapter would say one thing in the beginning, and by the middle, it'd be saying something different. The numerology chapter was especially hard to follow because there were a lot of typos and other misinformation. I would not recommend this book. In fact, if I could, I'd rate it lower than 1 star.

Sadly this book contains nothing that is either ancient nor forbidden. Good luck trying to understand any of it. Then again, it's really not worth trying to decipher. Good book for scaring fundamental Christians from ever visiting your home again, though. I had one see this on the shelf and run.

Found it in the stacks at UNH, read it off and on through college and finally found a used copy somewhere so I could finish it years later. Good, witty, but dense.

So far, a very interesting read. Not sure that it is 'forbidden' knowledge, but it's a worthy read.
