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. He worked for decades to interpret its meaning for initiates and the general ...more

The book of the Law is a grimoire written in kabbalistic cypher that was dictated to Aliester Crowley through his then wife(the channeler) at the time during their honeymoon in Egypt.

It is an extremely hard book to grasp and definitely not recommended for new comers to occultism as it will be a waste of time and not make any sense. I gave this book a 3 start rating because ...more

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).

For begginning collectors, I'll explain the differences

The first book, "Magical and Philosophical Com

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 :)
