Liber Thirty One is an extract from Frater Achad's (C.S.Jones) magickal diary. It details how he discovered the key to Liber AL vel Legis (The Book of the Law) which was received by the well known magus Aleister Crowley in 1904.
Frater Achad's discovery was itself predicted in Liber AL in chp1 vs47 and the proof that he gives is uncanny to say the least.
A small amount of qabalistic knowledge is needed to understand some parts of the book. But none of it is too taxing.
The main text of the book is good but the supposed "extensive annotation" by T Allen Greenfield is nothing of the sort. All that Greenfield has done is reproduce verses from Liber AL as footnotes.
Anyone interested in Aleister Crowley's "The Book of the Law" is advised to get this as well.

Boring 26 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Greenfield reprints Achad's work and then tells his readers which passages from Liber AL Achad is citing. Not very original "scholarship."

Achad's Masterpiece 5 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A lot has been said about Frater Achad and his relationship with Crowley. But most people miss the fact that Achad's Liber 31 was why Crowley renamed Liber L to Liber AL! As far as I can tell, this is the first annotated Achad book on the market. It has a great introduction and some of the footnotes are very useful-yet some make one ask what was the point? Overall it is a very important book in the Thelemic cannon and one any serious magician or Thelemite should have.

Bad Work At It's Best 3 April 2003
By "ouchnipple" - Published on Amazon.com
Can Greenfield ever get his "scholarship" right? When will he stop simply adding worthless footnotes and trivial minutia to the occult research pool and get down to some serious work? If you can find a free copy on-line, down-load and skip this piece of garbage-- nothing new here.

Can't Greenfield get it RIGHT? 13 April 2004
By Rusty Shackleford - Published on Amazon.com
Once again Allen Greenfield, alleged "occult scholar" bores his readers to tears with what he attempts to pass off as "original scholarship." Instead, he merely adds foot-notes to the text of Achad's work which do little more than annoy the serious occult student.
