An easy to use book, I have used a few books for Dummies, because I could not be bothered to wade through loads of other books to find an item, these books give you information in easy to understand English, however this is and American written book, So has an American slant on freemasonry, it does cover loads of things to do with freemasonry, but a lot is not used or relevant to UK freemasonry. Having said that it does have some little gems in it, I would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn a little more about the subject, just a shame there is not one covering UK freemasonry.

I approached this book with guarded optimism hoping that it would be not too little and not too much considering my complete ignorance in freemasonry. I was rewarded and surprised at the easy reading and matter of fact nature in which the reference was presented. This was a fun read for me and encouraged me to explore more. This volume has eased my trepidation in approaching our local lodge.
