What almost everyone says in the other reviews is true. The writing style is annoying, his attitude is pompus and overbearing, and you regularly want to throw the book to the other side of the room. but I've given it five stars because if you can get beyond these stylistic points the book has wonderful, unique, content. A book that has stayed with me, physically or otherwise, for years.

Peter Carroll has managed to construct the first genuinely innovative magickal technique in many, many years, unafraid of causing offense and controversy as he does so. A startlingly honest stripping down of magickal techniques, removing the glamour to see the raw psychology which lies underneath. Carroll has managed to present a workable, results-oriented system of sorcery that dispenses with the need to learn pompous and unnecessary magickal terminologies before putting one's Will into effect. Buy this book.

Chaos magic is both challanging yet familiar. Peter Carroll has a way of making perfect sense while spinning paradoxical thoughts. Whatever your beliefs and system of magical practice well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars very interesting 8 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
a classic and recommended for anyone interested in C20 western esoteric. practical and straightforward, it provides a good start and a platform on which to build your own personal occult structure. no baggage, no nonsense.

The book does have an allure when you first look at it. The contents page and the illustrations emit an intriguing fascination. However once you start reading this fades away to become only 'interesting'. I had never heard of the IOT before. Both books make the almost pioneering step of not only mentioning the prime Magical dual (Black and White) but adumbrating techniques in both. Some of the material discussed is truly shocking. The author has ambitiously defined Magical terms (invocation, evocation, enchantment, sorcery and more) that the beginner would probably think of as synonomous. It is, from the standpoint of categorisation, a very fine work. Would I recommend it? To the beginner yes. However I feel the book lacks the quality of specialisation that even an intermediate Magician is after. It is more a work of philosophy than specific technique. To be honest I don't think I would read it again, but it has it's place on my book shelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes a bit heavy-going 20 Sep 2013
By Matt
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Seems pretty solid, but honestly I think I prefer Phil Hine's writings on the subject. Carroll's book is pretty comprehensive, but it's quite a job to get through, the sort of thing I'm having to force myself to read. It's dry, like an O'Reilly IT textbook. Hine's stuff is full of insanity & passion, which lights my fires & gets me interested. I wouldn't say this one's boring, just that it's a bit lacking in "zap, pow, zowie!"

4.0 out of 5 stars does exactly what it says on the crucible 30 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Actually Chaos is a bad word in this context. It suggests it's all over the place - which is it, and yet it isn't. It's tight, focused and shorn of spirituality. Magical techniques for people who want to get on with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars LUCID EXEGESIS OF CHAOS MAGIC 19 July 2002
Liber Null, illustrated by Andrew David, and Psychonaut, with same by Brian Ward, are two separate books. The first is again divided into Libri MMM, LUX, NOX et AOM, and in these books Pope Pete deals with gnosis, divination, evocation, enchantment, sigils and "random belief," something that really amused me. Psychonaut is a collection of fascinating essays on, inter alia, new aeon magic, the rites of chaos, chemognosis (with a particularly interesting discussion of hallucinogens like the amanita and psylocybe mushrooms and the solanum species), shamanism, gnosticism, magical paradigms and magical time. My only problem is the - to say the least - disturbing illustrations by Ward. To someone with a sensitive disposition, these detract somewhat from the pleasuree of the reading experience. The text is richly enlivened by diagrams, figures, glyphs and perhaps to its detriment, by those eerie pictures. Apart from that, it's a no-nonsense magical handbook in a lucid and engaging style. A classic of sorts, I guess. Heartily recommended to fans of "The Addams Family" movies.
