Publisher's Summary

A compilation of rare works on the untold history and destiny of America by acclaimed occult writer Manly P. Hall.

Writer and scholar Manly P. Hall (1901-1990) is one of the most significant names in the study of the esoteric, symbolic, and occult. His legendary book The Secret Teachings of All Ages has been an underground classic since its publication in 1928. The Secret History of America expands on that legacy, offering a collection of Hall’s works - from books and journals to transcriptions of his lectures - all relating to the hidden past and unfolding future of our nation. 

Hall believed that America was gifted with a unique purpose to explore and share principles of personal freedom, self-governance, and independent thought. PEN Award-winning historian Mitch Horowitz has curated a powerful collection of Hall’s most influential and insightful works that capture and explore these ideas. Never before collected in one audiobook, the material in The Secret History of America explores the rich destiny, unseen history, and hidden meaning of America.

Phenomenal

Wow! The brilliance and depth of Manly are unparalleled. I learned so much from this book and I can’t wait to use it. Mitch does total justice to the work and look forward to more of his work as well. Listen to this book!!

Interesting history.

Parts of this book were meandering, especially when discussing the Indian tribes in the Northeast. Worth the listen though for sure. The chapter on Albert Pike was very revealing. As a Christian I have researched Puke and find him to be a Luciferian of high order. The book does not dispute this. I am ok with the Luciferian influence in society as long as there is a small level playing field where average people are exposed to both views and are welcome to choose for themselves. I promise not to hit you over the head with a Bible if you promise not to send me to a re-education camp.🙂

Highly Valuable Information

Well written, informative and highly enjoyable to listen to. The narrator does a great service - with his reading style - that most clearly relays a fine work by Manly Palmer Hall.

Will revisit again soon!

Very enjoyable intro to American Philosophy

This audiobook was an unparalleled intro to American craft and tradition in the realm of philosophy. I devoured it. Such a great listen, especially the deep dive into native American culture and relation to the early development of the Americas. Will certainly go back and listen again once I read/listen to more Manly P. Hall books.

Conspiracies Exist, There is Always Truth in Lies

I love how slanted Manly P. Hall's works always are. This editor seems to spin things even further than Manly P. Hall himself. It's amusing the way Hall always spins factual information to provide you with his own personal view on historical factions that linger in the shadows. This editor is a worshiper of MPH philosophy and occult teachings. Understand who and what you are reading. Before you tackle a Hall book, you need to already be well versed in these subjects so that you're aware of the mistakes and purposeful twisting of the truth. Good Luck!

not what I expected

if you're into conspiracy theory books. this isn't one of them. this is one the most boring history lessons I've ever say through. I like history dont get me wrong, like learning about Nero and the Roman emporers. but this is actually boring, boring

Brilliant Revelation

This book was an absolutely wonderful overview of the future of America from the perspective of an informed past. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to dive deeper into the true history of America. Manly P. Hall is an absolutely brilliant author and one of the most intelligent minds I’ve ever had the opportunity of exploring.

Outstanding!<br />

The amazing history of the Americas that I never got in school. I'm sad that we decimated the indigenous cultures.

great book but the sound gets clipped

The audible app seems very buggy on the sound. the narrator's voice is always cut in too late at the beginning of each paragraph. It's really annoying and ruins the experience of the book.
audible was much better before Lord Besos ruined it.
