From the team that brought you the bestselling SECRETS OF THE CODE and SECRETS OF ANGELS AND DEMONS comes the first literary companion to Dan Brown's latest blockbuster.
SECRETS OF THE LOST SYMBOL builds upon the expertise and wisdom of Nobel prize-winning scientists, historians, technologists and conspiracy theorists to help readers fully understand the mysteries behind THE LOST SYMBOL. Featuring extracts, interviews and specially commissioned commentary by world-renowned scholars, SECRETS OF THE LOST SYMBOL presents a wealth of information on the vast range of subjects covered in the novel.
Using the same comprehensive, detailed approach as Burstein's previous books, SECRETS OF THE SYMBOL will deconstruct and delve into the provocative issues raised by Brown's novel - including the history of Freemasonry.
This book is for everyone who finished THE LOST SYMBOL thinking, 'I need to know more about this book.'
