I think you mean “Born in Blood: The Lost Secrets of Freemasory”.
If so….while it is an entertaining book, there is no proof of anything in that book, and the conclusions are sloppy. He also wrote this book before he became a Freemason.
The way we regard this book in Freemasonry is just that…it is a fun read, but it is not useful for any factual research. I would not consider that book to be a good source of information for a non-Mason.
No, my friend. I would never say to anyone that one should not read any book. Read it if you wish. Just be aware that it will give you no more insight into the history and origins of Freemasonry than a children’s book of fairy tales or a Dan Brown novel.

I really need to know more and more about Freemasonry and looking for anything that increases my knowledge
For a basic introduction to Freemasonry, I would recommend the same books I would to a man in my own city who has expressed an interest in joining:
- A Complete Idiot’s Guide to Freemasonry
- Freemasonry for Dummies
If you are not familiar with this sort of book, please don’t be insulted by the titles. There are dozens in a series, generally taking something complicated and making it simple - Investment for Dummies, a Complete Idiot’s Guide to Calculus, etc.
These are reliable introductions to the Craft, easy to read while still giving good depth. Sadly, I do not think they are available in Arabic, etc.
You can read this book ‘تاريخ الماسونية العام: منذ نشأتها إلى هذا اليوم ‘جُرجي زيدان although you must forget the part concerning Masonry in the Middle East since most of the data is old news, no longer accurate, But i found the general info on the history of Freemasonry not bad at all, it presents good research, good dates and accurate data.
