Dr. Barrett  Dylan Brown, Phd
read when I was a Child... this is one of the Five (5) "Books of King Solomon" that are so Famous in the Occult Community because book number two (2) "The Lesser Key of Solomon" is about k-r@d "DEMONS," whereas This Book of Solomon, number One (1) I believe is Focused Soley on Angels...

Must re-read for any Serious, Academic, Anthropology-Oriented Scientist.

This book has some beautiful magickal seals and circles, especially the grand pentacle of Solomon, which was referenced in the Arabian Nights as the seal that he put on the djinn's vase.

Alright, lets cut to the chase: this is an archaic prayer book, nothing more. If you expect detailed tutorials on how to call out for some demon friends, this is not the book for you. I wanted to read it 'cause I've seen it referenced in other books and media, so I decided I should give it a try and see what was what.
Throughout the whole time I spent reading this I kept wondering if people really attempted to perform these crazy rituals and, damn, I'm pretty sure it must have happened, which is

Recommends it for: mystical students of the occult
This is a premer for the study of King Soloman's teachings in the occult world. Not easy to ready but packed with valuable information.

I have had one of the medallions for years, now I know why I found it so fascinating.

Not that good

Wasn't what I was really looking for. I will continue to search for the book with the answers I need.

At lastt~! I've got the e-book of Clavicula Salomonis~! Yaay~! Okay, before people get me wrong, I’m not a occult fan boy, I’m not a satanic worshiper *gulp*& I don’t even practice magick or any other mumbo jumbo stuff.
The only reason I really want to read this book is: I regard this book as a astonishing art book~! The symbols (especially the symbol of those legions) that were used on this book rather appear to me as a beautiful art form; it’s somewhat inspiring me on creating my own artwo

I give this stars for the historical interest factor. But I wouldn't say this book is 'readable'. It's obviously full of coding I don't understand, and parts were downright creepy. But it was fascinating to think where this sort of thinking came from / the ancestry of it.

Another one of those books that doesn't make sense to rate. The presents an Abrahamic, masculine view of magic. It emphasizes the use of language, so there are a million Hebrew names for God, spirits, and demons. The charts and diagrams are pretty interesting.

If you are familiar with halacha in early Judaism this book can be hilarious. Otherwise it's just boring nonsense.

Useless "magick" of no actual power.

It should be self evident given it was supposedly written by Solomon.
