really liked it

I had always wondered about the mystique that surrounds this Aleister Crowley fellow, well, now I know. This biography is one of the best and most comprehensive I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It manages to dish the dirt on ol' Crowley without being for or against him. He is shown simply for what he was (a complete and total tripper.) He proclaimed himself to be the most evil man in the world and yet through the examination of his life we see that he was merely an extremely intellegent man who had a flair for the dramatic and a keen ability to persuade people to follow him. A true eccentric and a more bizarre character one would be hard pressed to find. This book is non stop entertainment from beginging to end.
