Robert Anton Wilson uses the two greatest scientific and artistic minds of the 20th Century to solve a mystery whose roots may reach back for millenia. (In this book James Joyce becomes the drinking partner of Einstein ) Are they up to the task? Well yes and no. The important thing is Wilson is able to show us, in a very exciting and terrifying manner, quite believable and comprehensible insights into the minds of Albert Einstein and James Joyce as they ettempt to tackle that mystery of mysteries... "who are the Illuminati and what do they want?" In this book are mind boggling-ideas, brilliant nonsense and frighteneing notions that are that much scarier for seeming to make sense. (quote taken from an online book review that says it all much better than I ever could )

I thought it was good, but not nearly as memorable as The Illuminatus! Trilogy or Schrodingers Cat Trilogy. An interesting read if you like his other work.
