Filled with sex and violence--in and out of time and space--the three books of The Illuminatus are only partly works of the imagination. They tackle all the coverups of our time--from who really shot the Kennedys to why there's a pyramid on a one-dollar bill.

– “It’s chock full of free-thinking anarchism and did a lot to push me towards my current semi-libertarian view point.” — Dave –“I would imagine this book had a similar effect on a lot of people who read it. This book really changed the way I think and introduced me to a lot of really great information. I went on to read almost all of Robert Anton Wilson’s books. He was a great philosopher who wasn’t afraid to state his mind. He recently passed away and I know a lot of people will and are missing him. His greatest effect on me was the introduction of `maybe logic.’” — Cyen

User Review  - Tiffany Weinstein - Goodreads

I actually had to take noted to keep up with what was happening in this book. It's the third time I've started it and I finally made it through. God, it was worth it. I feel like I've accomplished something major. It gave me a few ideas. Be faired warned. Read full review
