An excellent foundational book on the Great Work. This book contains some real gems about the Art and will help to ground beginners and further inspire intermediate practitioners. This book explains the concept behind the philosopher's stone and provides many useful principles and techniques for the aspiring alchemist.

This is an excellent beginner primer to Western Alchemy and its tenets. The author does a good job of presenting and explaining the symbolism of Western Alchemy, and the relationship of the planetary and elemental energies to alchemy. More importantly, he emphasizes the importance of doing internal work and explains how Western Alchemy can be used for internal work. This is an excellent starter book for anyone who wants to learn about the fundamental basics of alchemy.

If you are truly a believer in alchemy, this may be the book for you. However, if you have any knowledge of science (chemistry in particular, but some biology will help too) then reading this will be an exercise of your patience and your tolerance for reading without retaining information. I gave up after page 7 because my incredulity exceeded tolerable levels.
