Not really a cover-to-cover read. It's a beautiful publication, however, and there are some interesting essays and passages on the occult and modern Satanism. A lot of puerile rambling, also, and thee spellings ov words in an affected way as such quickly accelerates from curious to irritating. I'm kindly disposed towards Genesis P. Orridge nonetheless (not least my Psychic TV records).

There's a lot of excellent material in this thick tome. Genesis' own words are inspired and inspirational. I don't agree with him on everything (I don't buy into his definition of time, for instance) and the affected spelling can grate after a while, but it's well worth reading, absorbing and putting into practice. It only loses a star because some of the supporting material by other writers makes for very dry reading and is occasionally incoherent or simply loopy. The good far outweighs the bad...more

Oh, Good Lord! The precious "occult" spellings, lack of originality or insight make this trying reading. P-Orridge is a popularizer and a bad one. Stick to Robert Anton Wilson if you want this kind of insight.

Recommends it for: anyone enchanted by the occult, social phenomenon like cults and P-Orridge's fans.
Recommended to cristina by: I found it online.
So far some glimpses of brilliance, on the other hand, possesses something doesn't connect with a reader that thinks by himself/herself.

Psychobable plagiarized - poorly - from more interesting writers.
