"There has been a definite surge of curiosity and interest in
Freemasonry, and, along with it, a profusion of ideas as to its purpose
and motives. Jay Kinney, a well-known writer and researcher in esoteric
traditions, and a Freemason, is an author the reader can trust to
deliver a balanced perspective on things that often seem hidden."

"Former Gnosis editor-in-chief Kinney knows his esoteric traditions. In The Masonic Myth he does a great job of sharing a whole lot of never-before-seen inside stuff in an easily understood way. There is a lightness to Kinney's writing here, despite a topic that seems often to move towards the dark. He keeps things in perspective, even while he helps us do the same."
"The Masonic Myth: Unlocking the Truth about the Symbols, The Secret Rites, And the History of Freemasonry is a fabulous look into the true world of Freemasonry."
"Kinney's book is an example of how to present an objective discourse on something, using valid arguments. He does it time and again, drawing from verifiable fact gleaned from reputable sources. He puts the facts together with logic (a basic tool of reasoning that is normally abused or absent altogether in today's culture). A person reading this book can experience what proper analysis is."
"Jay Kinney has a new book called the Masonic Myth that hopes to burst the conspiracy bubble. It lays out the history, the activities and the future of the Masons."

"Brother Kinney does a great job breaking down the 'Myth' even going so far as to give a play by play of the degree ceremonies all the while never revealing the 'secrets' we have obligated ourselves to. It is a good background book for those wanting to learn about allot of things about Freemasonry in a short amount of time."

"This book opened my eyes wider than I thought possible."
"Kinney's book is lucid and well-informed and comes with informative and often charming period illustrations."
