Mr. Duquette takes magick very seriously, as well he may, but takes himself far less so. He writes engagingly, and everything he has written that I have read has been a pure pleasure. To be able to write in so engaging and charming a style about a discipline as recondite as the theory and practice of ritual magick is a rarely (if ever) seen skill.
In answering the sometimes profound, sometimes sad, funny , provocative and occasionally decerebrate questions posed him over the years by correspondents, the author gives clear and helpful answers (where answers even exist), often using humor as a teaching vehicle. Funny and self-effacing a writer as Mr. Duquette is however, it is evident that once he "wraps his turban on" he knows - and he wants his readers to know - he is trodding on serious ground.
This is a delightful and enlightening "little" book (which is really not a little book at all) that I wish had been in print forty or so years ago, when I began my own journey down the magickal path - I recommend it unreservedly.
(1) Even though there are some good Q&A, most of them are simplistic. It includes many dumb questions, and Baba Lon answers are responded based on the mood and time available at those moments (some of them, short, broad, etc). Here are some examples: " I know this has been too brief....", " ....good luck. I've got to go to bed now.", " I'm sure this is not the kind of advice you wanted, but it's the middle of the night......", .... you will forgive me for not having more time to address this further, but I'm extremely busy this summer ......".
(2) There is a question on page 160: "After practicing the Lesser Banishing Rituals of the Pentagram and Hexagram all these years do you really think it has done anything at all for you? .... and Baba Lon answered: " You're absoluteli right ! We can never prove anything like that. Who knows?.........Did my banishing rituals protect me from demons Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck? Who knows!........Who knows?
It is funny, to avoid using other word, that a Magickian uses these rituals and doesn't know it they work......
There is still some good information which can be rescued........
