Crowley's life and thought are inexorably linked with 'The Book of the Law.' He received this visionary work by direct-voice dictation in Cairo in 1904. As an intelligent sceptic, he first found this improbable means of communication difficult to accept. Yet he could not ignore it or its message.

I strongly recommend this book to everybody who has an interest in Aleister Crowley, the Ordo Templi Orientis, or Thelema, as it explains the principle text Liber Legalis, or the Book of the Law. It will reduce a great deal of confusion about the philosophy, as well as it's reception in Egypt. Reading this book and Initiation in the Aeon of the Child will do a great deal to convince one of the astrological validity of Age in which we now live.

This is a review of the 1975 1st Paperback Edition of Dr. Regardie's edit "The Law Is For All." (I have heard rumors that there was a hardback run of the 1st edition, but I've never seen one). This was one of three books in the mid-70's that published various edits of the 3 or 4 commentaries that Crowley wrote about Liber L/Liber al vel Legis/Liber AL, usually referred to as The Book of the Law. For begginning collectors, I'll explain the differences

This book one can never really finish, so I'll just tag it as finished since otherwise it will always stay open-tagged. One should really read it regularly. At least someone like me :)

What can one say, its the Book of the Law and an extensive commentary to it. Absolutely essential.
