    The synopsis and comments for this book were very intriguing The title itself contains references to three subjects that always fascinate psychology, Freemasonry, and alchemy In all, this book was certainly worth the time spent reading it, however with that said it is a very quick read, especially once you omit the appendices.One major note as mentioned by the author himself in one of the later chapters, this book was written for Initiates only, and not for the profane non Masons While that might sounds intriguing to some readers, I have to caution that quite a lot of the terminology used in this book are subtle references to things that only those with an intimate knowledge of Freemasonry will be able to pick up on I would imagine that without the context, much of this book s information would be lost to the reader Just my two cents on that.Of the higher notes in this book, are the clearly explained analogies between various offices of the lodge, alchemical elements, Jungian archetypes, and even the various sections of the brain For example, the Posterior commissure is associated with the Worshipful Master in the East, since its function within the brain is adapting the eye I to varying degrees of darkness and light There is also a very compelling case made that the biblical story and and ritual wit...

    This was a great book I have read several books about personalities, this one brings home many points that will help you deal with people on many levels Enjoyed it very much.

    An interesting cross of Masonic symbology and neuro linguistic programming with a bit of jungian typology thrown in for good measure Not for everyone, but I enjoyed the unique perspective.
