I think most would agree this is superior to the first book (Big Secrets). Which means if you ENJOYED the first one, buy this book! If you didn't, you'll fine this one to be just as bad. My advice: buy the first one, and if you like it, buy this one (and Biggest Secrets). Among my favorites from this book: the secret U.S. government fallout shelter, how to cheat at gambling, and how magic tricks (incl. David Copperfield's Statue of Liberty disappearance) are done.

"Big Secrets" (and its sequel, "Bigger Secrets") are wonderful. The thing I like best about them is Poundstone's own honesty--he doesn't keep any secrets of his own. He tells you exactly _how_ he found out what he found out.

A Shriner may pledge that if he divulges the secrets of his order, he may incur "the penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade." But Poundstone discovered a Masonic supply house ("The Geo. Lauterer Corporation") that works by mail order and doesn't check ID, ordered a selection of titles, and tells us all of the inside skinny on IAOM and Tubal-Cain.

"Big Secrets" tells as much as Poundstone could find out about the secret formula for Coca-Cola and Kentucky Fried Chicken. It tells how the Rorschach test works and how to cheat on it. It tells several methods by which magicians saw a woman in two (you see, one of them is patented, so if you write the patent office and ask for patent #1,458,575...)

"Bigger Secrets" is equally good, maybe better. I think my favorite is his description of what the Rosicrucians are really like, but his explanation of how David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty Vanish and his analysis of backward and "subliminal" messages in records and movies are also excellent.

Bigger Secrets, the best of Poundstone's Secrets trilogy, solves the mysteries behind everything from the ingredients in heavily-guarded recipes tobackwards masking in records. I have read the book again and again, not only to refresh my memory on some of the facts he includes but alsoto enjoy Poundstone's concise and drily witty prose. In short, this book will rock your house(and give you cocktail party chitchat fodder foryears to come)

Is there anything this man cannot find out? An extremely well-writen book, Pounstone leaves no stone unturned when revealing some of the world's greatest secrets, such as the truth behind subliminal images and how some of the most famous magic tricks were really done. His style of writing is very clear, and often humorous. After reading this volume, you'll want to read the whole set!

The Big, Bigger, and Biggest Secrets are why anyone would buy the sequels after reading the original unless they were foolish enough to buy all three at once as I was. Very deceptive and Poundstone hedges a great deal. Much is not worth knowing and what is comes across as questionable. Spend your money on something else. Amazon has too many GREAT books to waste money on these.

The second book in the "Secrets" series is better and more interesting than the first but I still resist giving more than 3 stars since I know that information in his first book is false and therefore doubt is cast on all his publications.
But nevertheless, this is the best in the series.

Bill knows how to tell a secret, more than just revealing the "punch line" he gives you back up and history. This book and the other two have only one thing lacking!

When will volume four be published???
