An incredibly concise and terse book, organized by chapters spanning no longer than a single page. Written as a series of letters from Crowley to his 'magical son' and supposed heir, Frater Achad, which is just as useful to anyone who considers themselves heirs of the tradition of Thelema. Also, there are many chapters explicitly pertinent to work with OTO degrees if you have eyes to see.
