This is a veritable tomb, concerning Yoga, Magick, and the Law of Thelema. Everything the student will need to practice is contained within these pages, along with some of the Holy Books of Thelema, which outline the changes we are undergoing as we transition into the Age of Aquarius (the Aeon of Horus). It is a companion to the smaller Book 4 of Crowley, which deals with the same subjects in shorter verse, this book, I believe, has been put together out of various articles from the Equinox.

Crowley's definitive magnum opus on magick and self-actualization, made even more valuable by HB's introduction and extensive footnotes. Must-have for Thelemites and magicians of all persuasions. Except perhaps fans of Lynn V. Andrews and Silver TreeRaven (or whatever her name is this week).

Recommends it for: Intermediate to Advanced Ritual Magicians
Definitely NOT a beginner's treatise, but quite possibly the most exhaustive and illuminating book on post-Golden Dawn Hermetic ritual magick.

Still, the one I'd save from a fire.

Ever yearn for an occurrence in your brain characterized essentially by the uniting of the subject and object? Samadhi? Visions of God?

Want to step outside the myth of dialectics? Bound too fastly to your inherited metaphysics?

Well this is the place to start. I'm working on it.

The One. The Only. The absolute necessary book for every magician today.
It's THE encyclopedia of, here it comes..... Theory and practice of Magick! Plain and simple truth.
Jen Snider
Quite possibly the most I have ever spent on a book but worth every penny! Fantastic collection of the knowledge of various ancient cultures and views on "magic"

The bible of Magick of the 20th Century. Indispensable resource for anyone studying and/or practicing the Western esoteric tradition.
Mark Richfield
All four parts of Book 4 in one place... very handy (and at a good price) for the beginner/layman.
