5.0 out of 5 stars The new edition of a Classic 10 Mar 2011
By Ogmios
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the new edition of Kraig's classic course on high magick of the western tradition. Here you will an excellent primer to get you going on the path particularly if you are interested in Golden Dawn Traditions and Thelema (although does not cover Thelemic rituals), although the course does contain a section detailing modern Wicca and Tantric material.

The new edition is much larger than the previous edition and includes some much better larger photos and diagrams, plus helpful summary sheets. New material is also inserted into the text at various points with Kraig's anecdotes, tips and updates on matters since the previous editions. At times these are insightful, witty and perhaps a little annoying but overall make for an updated better text than the original.

The New Chapter making this '12 lessons' includes Kraigs Synopsis of NLP, Chaos Magick and 'Post Modern Magick/Linguistics' ideas of Patrick Dunn. Personally, I found the section on NLP to be rather too brief to be of much value other than to just point the interested reader in the right direction. At a guess I might say there is 20% new material included in the book at the very most, comprised mostly of the new 12th chapter.

Overall an excellent buy, even if you have the old edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!! 4 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent manual for anyone wishing to study the occult. Unlike many authors I have read, Mr Kraig not only explains the workings of a ritual in detail, he also explains why to do them in the first place - this is important. So many students these days copy ritual work for the sake of copying, with little understanding of why they are performing them, and hence stifle their own development.

Everything you need is in this book, and a great bonus is the fact that if you get stuck you can email Mr Kraig and he does get back to you (quite quickly too! Check out his profile on the llewellyn website)

Clear, concise, good format.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Revolution: Real Education! 13 April 2012
By RH86
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finally! This book alone is worth the dozen or so hefty magickal classics written by the 'greats'.
It's a little like 'self-help' meets magick. It gets you out of the habit of just reading, and into actually DOING.
In a few short weeks, thanks to its lucid explanations and wonderfully clear and genial tone, I have progressed further in real magickal pratice than I have in the last few years of reading. This book encourages the reader (over and over again) to physically put the book down, get up and actually practice what is being taught. And that's when the magick happens.

The book's lesson format reminds me of the two similarly designed works of Paul Foster Case (which are equally worth while, by the way), and are very cumulative indeed. And as long as you progress through it in a sequential manner, with patience and due diligence, you will find that the knowledge presented along the way sinks in edffortlessly. And mind you, it covers the easy stuff, but quickly moves onto some pretty serious work. Also worth noting are the little indications that the author has been a practitioner and advanced teacher for many years, as he presents handfuls of practical, modern-day solutions and tips (and personal anecdotes) for getting the most out of techniques and rituals.

It becomes apparent within the first few pages that this is a carefully constructed book, condensing many years of practical knowledge (and I must emphasise PRACTICAL, in several senses of the word), and is presented to the entire spectrum of spiritual seekers in a way that satisfies readers of all levels. It's a great achievement, and I feel very fortunate to have stumbled across its path. (And yes; it DOES work - there are real, tangible results within a week or two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb introduction 6 Dec 2010
I purchased the first edition many years ago but recently failed to find my copy - so I ordered the latest edition. Wow, what an improvement. The original presentation was good, but the current edition is excellent. The format is much larger, and the images are great. As for the text, it captures much of the teaching of GD, and the later hermetic groups BOTA and SIL. This is a very clear and practical text that will engage the readers for years. A must purchase for anyone interested in the western mystery tradition.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good primer 19 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not the easiest book to read from cover to cover and was not really designed to be read in that way. It is a lesson book, but sometimes i found you had to constantly jump forwards and backwards to reference stuff, fortunealy this was on my kindle which makes it so much easier rather to do.
