Praise for The Secret History of the World

"An entire library's worth of scholarship [in] a single volume."
?San Francisco Gate

"Authentically mind-boggling."

"Booth's history incorporates so many disparate philosophies. . . His universe is full of bizarre theories, entertaining primarily for their weirdness."
?Publishers Weekly --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

The amazing surprise New York Times bestseller, filled with "breathtaking glimpses into worlds that heretofore have been little explored" (Foreward)

They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history-or what we come to know as history-has been written by the wrong people? What if everything we've been told is only part of the story?

In this groundbreaking and now famous work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise-that everything we've known about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true-Booth produces nothing short of an alternate history of the past 3,000 years.

From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Don Quixote, from George Washington to Hitler- Booth shows that history needs a revolutionary rethink, and he has 3,000 years of hidden wisdom to back it up. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

A new genre for me, as it keeps my imagination as excited as if I was reading sci-fi and my knowledge hydrated all the way.

The writing-style is easy to enjoy and the ideas exposed made simple to apprehend.

It actually made me want to cross-reference the names and places with mythology encyclopedias...!

It's a great book for those interested and/or studying metaphysics. I was so impressed while reading that I had to buy several copies both in english and french for my friends and coworkers who are into esotericism.

This book is not for everyone, Perhaps you are not it! 17 février 2008
Par Odniel Gonzalez Ortiz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
To understand this book it is necessary a couple of things. First an understanding that this book is not for everybody and that it cannot be understood by everybody. Second, you cannot grasp this book without having yourself immersed in occultism and having been a member of a secret society or western mystery schools (Just type this in google and you will find out that there are many). Third, at the beginning the book Mr. Booth invites you to take part on an IMAGINATIVE exercise. Fourth, in the academic study of religion there are actually two types of histories considered; the secular or academic history, which is based on actual events that happened and can be proven scientifically through archeology; and sacred history, which takes as true and factual the events that are exposed in the sacred books like the Bible (Old and New testament) and the Koran among many others, which normally form the basis of faith, believes and dogmas of the followers. This book presents a third, subjective and related more to the evolution of our consciousness, which have been presented in secret societies or passed down as mysteries or mythology through the ages.
I will tell you that this book has nothing to do with conspiracy theories but that some of its contents may be misunderstood as such when in fact certain stories are used to present or represent certain ideas exposed in the western mystery traditions. Please note that western mystery traditions are concerned with direct spiritual experiences of reality and of a supreme being, this books talks about this too. Do not expect techniques or guidance on practices, but do expect hints on where to further research all through the book. As an academic I understand his lack of citations of sources as you would find in scientific research but this book is not an academic book. It is a "further research on your own" carefully compiled book.
As you read through the book you will realize that it is deeply inmersed in Rudolf Steiner ideas but without being one of the blindly followers of anthroposophy. But it is also seem that Steiner didn't created all of his ideas on his own and that you can find individuals that have exposed similar ideas to his way before his time and if you further research you will find that these also got their ideas from other individuals before their time also. It is this chain of ideas and of direct spiritual experiences that have weaved a thread, subtle, through history which we may seem in mysticism, magick, occultism, and western mystery tradition.

This is an excellent book and it will turn into an underground classic, as many really important books do, until society is ready again for its ideas. I hope that this review will help you make an informed decision. This is not a beginners book, you cannot simply pick it up at the airport and hope you will comprehend it. It takes time and previous knowledge to make it worth you time. For those prepared, enjoy, and happy researching!!

People are taking this book too seriously 2 février 2008
Par Scully - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I stumbled upon this book at Barnes and Nobles. It introduced me to ideas I have never heard of before, important ideas such as the mind before matter universe. It also came at spirituality from a historical point of view which I had never experienced before in a book. Maybe there are flaws in Booth's research or disagreements over technical points but overall, I believe he is trying to create a consciousness and curiosity in readers which I believe he succeeds in doing. This is not a book about conspiracy theories as one would think of conspiracy theories. He does not spend a lot of time on the Illuminati etc. This is just an overview of what certain historical people have believed. This theme gets repetitious and I wish the information in the book was presented a little less jumbled. I feel it was probably published too soon, like if they would have spent more time editing and revising it, the book would have been better. I am giving it four stars based on the book's ability to make me think in a different light and because I appreciate the author's attempt to take on such an encompassing task as recounting the world's history from a completely different point of view.

All the Bad Reviews are Right but So What 18 décembre 2009
Par Philip Dejong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
All the reviews which pan this book are right. There are inconsistencies in the text and the book is chock full of ideas with not one footnote. So what? This book attempts to recreate human history from what the author terms an "idealist" perspective. I would prefer to call it an "enlightened" perspective. The world is dreamstuff and human history is part of the dream. The human sense of ego self is a relatively new phenomenon in the progression of the dream. Booth spins Jung, Plato, Jesus, Buddha, Newton, and countless other thinkers into a magical souffle which is generously sprinkled with "Ah-Ha's" too numerous to count.

If you are looking for an intellectual history tome with lots of footnotes to ignore, look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you are reasonably well read and want to sit down to play with someone who can make the lego blocks of the mind into some outrageously bold structures, this is the book for you.

An Intellectual Journey 19 janvier 2011
Par JTrenchard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What Mr. Booth does is combine all the major religions and the ancient civilizations into one, humanized, spiritual existence. His genesis story, running parallel with scientific theory, was truly amazing. Instead of prophesying about one righteous ideology, Booth shows the reader that all are alike. Whereas our ancient history takes us to the Egyptians and Sumerians, where did their ancient history take them? This is what the author wants us to think about. How did they created their myths and why? How those myths have been infused into modern religion. Once we can see this evolution will be able to see the greater existence of our being.

Some people have given the author four stars for lack of citation, other have roundly criticized him for this same thing. I disagree and challenge anyone to review and read what the author lists as his sources. There is no doubt that the author has spent more than two decades researching the material for THIS book. In my opinion, some dissertations lack the level of research and dedication Mr. Booth has spent in preparation.

I do have one small criticism. While I like the narrative, at times I felt the author was too hesitant to divulge either his true intentions, or the true intentions of what was meant. Like a prize fighter who takes down his opponents while sitting on the bench, at times I wanted Mr. Booth to get in the ring and knock someone out. He takes a step in that direction near the end of the book, but I believe he could have done so throughout. An example would be his discussion of the Indian mystery schools and Sufism. While he mentions that "it has been observed", has he - the author - ever observed what he's describing? Has he seen a mystic stop his heart from beating or lower his blood pressure on command, or become invisible? Has he ever personally seen these feats of true spiritualism as claimed? I took what Mr. Booth has said, but now I want to more about him, have his experiences influenced his work. I know he was offered initiaion, but I would love to know more of his friend who did the offering. Aside from this personal fascination, I would recommend this to anyone interested in a spiritual examination of our human existence.

enriching read 13 février 2008
Par Patrick L. Uzzell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am finding the book a worthwhile read. I think many of the negative reviews are due to the fact that people are only able to accept materialistic evidence that something is true. Such as a fossil or carbon dating.
However, Booth is relying to a large degree on uncovering of unexplainable coincidences and correspondences between mythologies. It is a platonic or gnostic top-down approach to logical proofs rather than an Aristotlean bottom up approach. As above below, a mind before matter approach.
It is probable that he made some mistakes as until both bottom up and top down logic can meet in the middle, there will be inaccuracies. Even if one were to have ready access to all the facts in the universe, that does not mean that one would be capable of discerning the underlying causes or meaning or purpose. And vice versa, even with an eternal souce of wisdom of universal causes and purpose, the form taken by underlying manifestations and events would still not not be clear. Because an infinite alignment of material manifestations would be possible to express any given divine truth or principle.
So while I did not necessarily agree with all his explanations, this book has the virtue of turning our gaze to the heavens and asking the important questions. Sometimes his gaze upwards may be a bit out of focus. And it is clear that Booth does not have knowldedge of every event ever taken place. But, in my view, he asks the right questions, he is certainly thoughtful enough, and appears to have done considerable research.
If you are looking for an irrefutable source to answer all your questions for you, look elsewhere.This book is merely one of many keys you will need to unlock for yourself the matrix. However, if you wish to brainstorm a vastly rich and reasonably coherent source of perspectives to enhance your world view, this is your book. A must for seekers.
