Publisher's Summary

Manly Palmer Hall (1901-1990) was a Canadian-born author, lecturer, astrologer, and mystic. The Secret Teachings of All Ages is a comprehensive compendium of the ancient occult and esoteric traditions of the world. It looks at the schools of philosophy down the ages, in respect of their origins, notable characters, and influences on civilization. The vast scope of this classic work examines the ancient mythology, ritual, symbolism, arcane, and mystical teachings of, among others, the Druids, Mithraism, Christianity, Gnosticism, Platonism, Hermeticism, the Chaldeans, Paracelsus, Rosicrucianism, and other secret societies. The subjects covered include alchemy, cryptology, Kabbalah, and the Tarot. A valuable source for students of history, philosophy, or mythology.

An Absolute Travesty of a Great Work

Whether you deeply respect the works of Manly P. Hall or are a curious newcomer- DO NOT TOUCH THIS "version". Or anything else narrated by such an extraordinarily ill-equipped and astoundingly presumptuous narrator. While he is at it, he mispronounces every last name, phrase, and sentence he possibly could. His narration style is an egotistical and breezy self-confidence that beggars description altogether. Audible, you and I have had a decade long relationship by now. THIS is by far the worst production of a great book I've encountered in all that time. PLEASE find narrators who can master this new and deeply interesting esoteric audiobook subgenre. Or just stop the grotesque butchery of Many P Hall until you have them.

Recommended esoteric reading

For anyone seeking wisdom I recommend the following:

1)The Doctrine and Ritual of High Magic (Levi)
2)Morals and Dogma (Pike)
3)The Kybalion (by the Golden Dawn I guess...) written by who the hell knows.
4) Secret teachings of all ages.(MPH)
5) Do not read,Crowley’s book of the Law,or the book of lies, he is a worse influence than Nietzche.
6)The King James Bible.
7)Bhagavad Gita.

Last,anything Mark Booth’s occult history of the world I believe.

50 Chapters with No Titles

It seems unthinkable that once downloaded the Chapter Titles are not included to help the listeners navigate this monster of a book. Massive oversight.

An essential classic

while the narrator has an engaging voice and a talent for reading, he mispronounced many words and couldn't seem to decide between an American or British accent.

For those who see ask and knock

What a wonderful and profound literary work. The ease with which Mr. Hall navigates the complexities of philosophy and the arcanum while pulling back the vail for those seeking wisdom is difficult to match in this age.
A big thank you to A. Brandt for a wonderful performance that in no way detracts from the content but makes it a pleasure to consume with the senses.

Readers be aware, the attached PDF is a good resource you don’t want to miss out on.

Peace and love to all

skips

the recording skips often enough to be frustrating. since chapters more than others. it's not my phone or the app because it skips in the same spots every time. the reader does a great job though and the material itself is incredible.

One of the Greatest Books Ever Written

There are not any other audio versions of this great work, and it a work every human should read or hear. The recording quality is excellent and the pace is good. However, Brandt’s accent is contrived and inconsistent. He sometimes softens his r’s in a silly way and his frequent and inconsistent exaggeration of sh sounds is obnoxious and unauthentic. They should have gotten Mitch Horowitz to read this important work.
