The problem with reading a book about a secret society, written by a friend of members of said society, is that it is basically impossible to take, at face value, anything that is written that seeks to assert activities and historical narrative. Is what Ridley wrote in this book true? Or is it what he and those he associates with want readers to believe is true? And how can the reader even know? A lot of research would have to be done in corroboration.
