I became interested in reading this book when a person I deeply respect gave me a pentagram necklace, saying that if anyone understood the true meaning of the symbol, it would be me.

As it turns out, quite few of my personal philosophies seem to parallel those of LaVey. I would take this book a bit more seriously if only Satanism wasn't so interested in superiority, inane majik ritual, or trying to be a direct contrast to another major religion. As others have pointed out, LaVey's Satanism is just modern liberal thinking ahead of its time with an incendiary title smacked on.
