all the wisdom of the ancients in one volume. its a great book, but make sure you get an edition that has the colored plates and all the illustrations, it makes a world of difference and well worth the added cost. i know other people like it too, my 1st two copies were stolen, hopefully by someone who really got into the info provided in this book

This book has a good general introduction into the systems of Western occultism, or what some call, the Western Esoteric Tradition. It does bear some of the markings of its time, however: for example, the other believes in the Baconian theory about Shakespeare, claiming that William Shakespeare lacked the proper education and could not have written the plays attributed to him. A whole book could be written on that topic, so I am not going to demonstrate the theory's flaws here. He also, as a Freemason, seeks to link every single esoteric tradition to modern Freemasonry. It makes the book come off more as a conspiracy theory than anything else; Freemasonry, without a doubt, has absorbed a great deal from the traditions preceding it, but they are not explicit, strong links. In reverse, as well, the book tries to link all traditions back to Atlantis; the same criticism applies: any possible links, to a potentially non-existent continent, are tenuous. Read this book if you are interested in a general history of the occult, with focus on individual systems, or even if you just need a little inspiration for writing, which is why I bought it.

A very thought provoking read. Manly P. Hall was truly illuminated.

Manly P. Hall, adept, sage, philosopher, Freemason, and intellectual, has given the world this amazing encyclopedic overview of the world's most important esoteric traditions and philosophical schools of thought. The reading is not light, but the reader will come away enlightened if they put the time into truly comprehending Mr. Hall's words - that is to say the teachings of antiquity. Anyone who wants an introduction to esoteric traditions need look no further. "Secret Teachings" is widely regarded as one of, if not the best books on the subject matter. Whether you decide to read it cover to cover or pick and choose from the dozens of chapters/subjects; purchase this tome and you will not be disappointed.

I'm still slowly reading through The Secret Teachings of All Ages, about halfway through this gargantuan compendium of all things arcane in the disciplines of religious mythology and mystical religions, with their always intriguing ancient rites, symbols, and of course, "secret teachings". The book, I'm discovering, is really more of a reference work than a book to pick up and read from start to finish, though finish it I happily will.The lengthy introduction provides abstracts of just about every philosophic movement in history, and serves as an excellent refresher course for students of philosophy. Someday I'd like to itemize the founders and features of each philosophy with maybe an abstract of my own, for later reference, just for fun.I can't say I believe much of what I'm reading in this book, however, at least regarding the history and veracity of the ancient gnostic's vast (and complexly convoluted) underworld network of behind-the-scenes movers and shakers in world politics, religion, and thought. The core conception of The Secret Teachings of All Ages -- that an "Elect" few denizens of ancient secret societies have existed from time immemorial, and are still operating today, covertly shaping and re-shaping and preserving in the process, through the eons, the world's major movements (and advances) in mathematics, the sciences, philosophies, and religions -- I find dubious at best. Too conspiratorial for my taste, like The Da Vinci Code. Guess I'm just a Doubting Tomás. Nevertheless, as a fan of good books like Foucault's Pendulum -- that contain their own unique compendium of secret societies -- I'm inevitably fascinated by and attracted toward what Manly P. Hall has termed "The Mysteries" that are veiled within the symbolism and creeds and esoterica of secret societies. Manly P. Hall authored somehow, what in less skilled hands might have become a tedious and too-recondite reference work, a remarkably readable tome. In fact, The Secret Teachings of All Ages is not just plain readable, but pretty darned unputdownable.

Hearsay writing; no documentation. Some will like it, some will not. A reference work of some value, I suppose.

Who wrote about the masons and made millions? Oh yes, and stuff about the vatican and just keeps on going... well... if you know NOTHING about the masons EVERYTHING IS IN HIS BOOK RE; SIGNS, SIGNALS, SECRET ORGS... and what was this about all the research (Mr. Brown!) Also, when I was very, very young and he was very, very old -- Not Mr. Brown -- but the author, I heard him speak in L.A. Fabulous mind, outstanding library still standing... visit it some time. It's called the Philosophical Society on Wilshire near downtown...
