There aren't many books on magick that can lead a beginner sensibly from complete novice to the performance of the Star Ruby and the Star Sapphire, but this is one of them.
Farber has only one agenda : magick that works. And magick that makes sense to a modern 21st century student. In this slim volume you get practical advice on how to prepare yourself for ritual, what to expect and why, what to discard and what to keep, and a series of excercises that, used properly, will prepare you for the more advance rituals laid out in the appendixes.
You won't be bogged down by supposedly ancient mumbo-jumbo, or the need to accept a particular magical philosophy or set of god forms. And, best of all, you won't have to pay anyone a large sum of money to "teach you".
You will need to work. In magic there are no free lunches. But every journey starts with the first step, they say, and buying this book could be yours.
