Praise for THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE WORLD
"The powerful narrative drive and cornucopia of startling revelations that form the core of Mark Booth's new book show us the world not as we have been taught to see it but as it really is - deeply strange and mysterious, filled with secrets and codes, with humanity rightly placed at the heart of a grand cosmic riddle. Nothing of this scale and ambition has been attempted since Blavatsky's The Secret Doctrine, and Black rises to the challenge with style, originality and aplomb." --Graham Hancock, author Fingerprints of the Gods.
"The spirit of Lewis Carroll lives on every page of this gloriously topsy-turvy history." --Gyles Brandreth, author of Oscar Wilde and a Death of No Importance
"This is the most controversial book I have ever reviewed. I've just finished reading it and feel slightly dizzy. What an amazing piece of work! And quite clearly inspired." --Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider and From Atlantis to the Sphinx
"A Morning of the Magicians for the twenty first century." --Gary Lachman, founder member of Blondie, reviews for the Independent on Sunday
"This is the book that says everything I've tried to express in my music." --Gareth Seger, The Pop GroupAbout the Author:
