About the author
Date of Birth: 22 Jun 1964
Education: Phillips Exeter Academy 1982; B.A., Amherst College, 1986; University of Seville, Spain
Born in Exeter, New Hampshire in 1964, Brown attended Phillips Exeter Academy (where his father taught), and graduated from Amherst with a double major in Spanish and English. After college he supported himself through teaching and enjoyed moderate success as a musician and songwriter. until 1994, his reading tastes were focused sharply on the classics. Then, on vacation in Tahiti, he stumbled on a paperback copy of Sheldon's novel The Doomsday Conspiracy. By the time he finished the book, he had decided he could do as well. There and then, he determined to try his hand at writing. His first attempt was a pseudonymously written self-help book for women co-written with his future wife Blythe Newlon. Then, in 1998, he published his first novel, Digital Fortress -- followed in swift succession by Angels and Demons and Deception Point. None the three achieved commercial success. Then, in 2003, Brown hit the jackpot with his fourth novel, a compulsively readable thriller about a Harvard symbiologist who stumbles on an ancient conspiracy in the wake of a shocking murder in the Louvre. Combining elements from the fields of art, science, and religion, The Da Vinci Code became the biggest bestseller in publishing history, inspiring a big-budget movie adaptation and fueling interest in Brown's back list.
Dan Brown is the author of numerous #1 bestselling novels, including The Da Vinci Code, which has sold more than 80 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best selling novels of all time. Named one of the World's 100 Most Influential People by Time Magazine, he has appeared in the pages of Newsweek, Forbes, People, GQ, The New Yorker, and others. His novels are published in 51 languages around the world. His next novel, The Lost Symbol, releases September 15, 2009.
Dan Brown's Favorite Books and what makes them special to Him -
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck -- Simple, suspenseful, and poignant. Better yet, the first paragraph of every chapter is a master class in writing effective description.
Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer -- I was amazed how well Archer handled the long time spans without ever losing the narrative pulse. The ultimate novel of sibling rivalry.
book delivery review
first time booking from a new site and got the book on time and great delivery.
Very thrilling, fast paced, interesting read...
Dan Brown... the best author as far as I know..
I don't know how can a man know so much about something...
Robert Langdon series.. The best thing about this series is, the former doesnt have anything to do with the latter one... They have their own stories, secrets and thrills to share..
The first one, Angels and demons, deals with the illuminati and vatican city..
The second one, The davinci code, deals with the Priory of Sion and race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe...
This one, the lost symbol, deals with the Freemasonry and the capital, Washington D.C.
Very thrilling, fast paced, interesting read...
I felt the last 50 pages made a good self-help guide.. over all, a good read!!
Superfast shipping. Thanks Infibeam!

Got a spanking new book of the lost symbol the very next day of the release. Good service by infibeam.com!
Well regarding the book, I barely started reading it and many people came asking for it - talk of free lunch (or may be a free feast!). After a long time I've seen such a craze about a new-released book. The book cover looks great too!
The Lost Symbol - eagerly waited
The much read and loved books; 'The Da Vinci Code' followed by 'Angels and Demons' prove that Dan Brown sure has a way of making an impact on even the not readily impressionable readers. He is back with his third thriller with none other than Robert Langdon, the Professor of Symbology as the protagonist. The Conspiracy embedded in this fun and suspense packed novel - 'The Lost Symbol' will be unraveled soon i.e. on September 15, 2009; once the book hits the stands.
Much of what the writer has to offer is knit in intriguing themes and an equally enticing plot. The easy flow of the theme with mind boggling discoveries will compel you to turn pages. Spruced up to put its best image forward, ‘The Lost Symbol’ has many optimistic fans awaiting the release.
The Lost Symbol deals with free masonry and delves into the lost symbol of all the Masonic symbols that were associated with the founding of America. Is it the double headed 'Eagle of Lagash' or the 'great seal of the United States'? This remains to be discovered. Besides, the appearance of the feathered serpent at the Equinox at Chichen Itza - a phenomenon that occurs twice a year will provide fodder for your imagination.
This Dan Brown work has kept fans waiting for 6 long years. With the release date round the corner, the wait is getting even more exciting. Brace yourselves; be the first ones to read the book and unravel the conspiracy. I for one cannot wait to get hold of the book and write a review soon.
