Review & Giveaway: Decoding The Lost Symbol by Simon Cox



I think that my love of books stems from my love of learning. There is always at least one thing that can be learned from a book, even if it's just a new word. In high school, I was one of the nerds who loved to write research papers. Going to the library and spending hours pouring over encyclopedias was fun for me. I even did research in my free time about whatever subject was calling my name at the time.

Some of my favorite things to learn about are secret societies, religion and rituals. This book incorporated all three and helped me understand why certain things were done. I may not agree with a particular idea but I still like to know where it originated from. If you're like me and want to know everything about these topics, I recommend this book.

My student's are looking forward to
honing and applying their research and anaylitical skills to interpret The Lost Symbol; this text would be an important reference tool.
