11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Barry Mac on 27 Mar. 2012
Format: Hardcover
Crowley's esoteric masterpiece - 25 years in construction - is divided into four parts: 1)Mysticism, (incorporating Yoga and Meditation); 2)Magick: Elementary Theory, (outlining the symbolism of the Wand, Cup, Sword, Robe, etc., employed in Ceremonial Magick); 3)Magick in Theory & Practice, (in essence the Philosophical, Kabbalistic and Scientific basis of Magick); 4)The Law Of Thelema: being an autobiographical account of how Crowley came to receive the Book Of The Law, followed by a full transcript of the text.

This tome is revered amongst Crowley Disciples as a kind of Occult Bible - and it certainly is the practical and theoretical cornerstone of the Religion of Thelema. What quite a few of Aleister's fans do not realize, however, is that he wrote "Magick" as a reference book, or guide: an addition to one's own independent line of esoteric study. Such is clearly outlined in the introductory "Note" penned by Mary d'Este Sturges, in which she also states that A.C. "does not ask for followers". Try telling that to the veritable legions of Crowley obsessives in existence nowadays. Put simply: the complex and (alleged) incomprehensible nature of the work which has left so many seekers dumbfounded and confused is a rich and colourful, alternative universe, the intention of which is to totally absorb the consciousness of the individual and cut off the malaise of triviality and "everydayness" - thus allowing supernormal, subconscious powers to be liberated. This process also underpins the nature of ALL Occult Ceremonies and Rituals.

The rationale lying behind Aleister's execution of this work lay in his strenuous conviction that each individual human being should strive to discover their True Will.

19 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Pentharion on 22 Mar. 2004
Format: Hardcover
Liber Aba is as important to magick as Einsteins general theory of relativity is to science. If you are familiar with Weisers 1993 edition don't be fooled by the cover, this edition is a beast666 of a book that contains considerably more in the way of extended appendices, full glossary of terms, editors notes that could keep one occupied for days, full index and never before published A.'.A.'. papers amongst lots more. The Master Therion would i'm sure be chuffed to bits to see his magnum opus as he originally intended but never lived to see in his own lifetime. If you only ever intend to buy one of Frater Perdurabo's numerous works this one has all the right bits in one place. Crowley made sure no-one would ever get to the bottom of what he was ultimately about but this book is certainly the place to begin. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Be aware what this book is. It is composed of Book Four followed by Magick in Theory and practise. Its nicely packaged, and the frontispiece is a classic. But it is still simply the above two books in the form they were meant to be published in.

20 of 24 people found the following review helpful By AlannahBabalon156 on 10 Aug. 2004
Format: Hardcover
Theres very little I can add to the previous reviewers comments regarding this, as they've pretty much spelt it out how excellent Crowley's master-opus is. Simply, if you're a Thelemite, Occultist or a Crowley fan in general - you need this!!!! It also gives proof to any intelligent & open mind, that far from being the drug-addled poseur so many people unfairly paint Crowley as, that this is penned by a man who deserved a damn sight more respect in his lifetime as a genius of occultism with a brand of philosophy that some people are still scared witless by. All in all, its one of the very few books Ive splashed out on, that has re-paid thrice the amount I paid for it and even more. This book together with Lon Milo Duquette's "The Magick of Thelema", will show you the way. "There is no law beyond Do What Thou Wilt, Love Is The Law, Love Under Will".

Format: Hardcover
This is definitely one of Crowley's best work on the basic mechanism of magick, in this volume, he gave a very detailed treatment on the subject. If there is anything a serious student must have, is this. Definitely worth its weight in gold!The best of the best! this book will take you far on the magickal path

Format: Hardcover
This book has been the elusive guide to Magick, and unless you were lucky enough to be able to get the full edition from a collector, you had to search endlessly jigsawing such books as The Equinox of the Gods, Book Four, and Magick in Theory and Practice. Now your Crowleyana can be complete with this edition of Magick. The Beast is Dead, Long Live The Beast!
