I rather enjoyed this study of Freemasonry. It was a pretty quick read, but invoked some rather deep thoughts for my mind to ponder. I'd recommend it to any member of the craft, new or old. Non-members may find it a little tedious, but will also find some good insights into the link and history between ancient and modern Freemasonry.
I couldn't even believe it when I saw this book was written in 1914. It was such a wonderful listen and it holds strong today. It's the best audiobook or book I've ever listened to or read about masonry.
This book explains the allegorical nature of what it means to be a mason as well as a good person and to see the good and become enlightened. I think this is a must listen to. Many people don't understand the philosophy of masonry and this audiobook is the perfect opportunity to clarify many misconceptions.
Craig C. Hummel narrated this book wonderfully. I enjoyed listening to him as he had a calm, relaxing voice which resonated very well with the book. He spoke clearly and had a nice tone. I'll say this before anyone else does. One line was repeated in chapter nine but I thought he did such a great job it didn't even matter. And perhaps a few names were pronounced differently from what I've heard but I knew who he was talking about. I loved the book and feel it's well-deserving of the straight across five stars.

This book has some of the most beautiful, peaceful and brilliant writing I have had the pleasure to read. I found this book while researching Freemasonry and was absolutely blown away by the inspired writing by Newton.
Our world would be a better place if everyone read and practiced treating all others with respect, honor and love as a fellow human being. We are all of the same substance. The dust-to-dust analogy applies to all humankind, no matter one's race or ethnicity. This wonderful little book is pure poetry and reading it will motivate you to show more love and respect for all those you encounter.
