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.

If your interests lie within the Golden Dawn order, and in the early stage of acquiring knowledge, I "FIRMLY" advise Modern Magick as a "MUST" read. Not only does it teach you "ALL" you need to know to kick start your esoteric endeavors but, in a very "SAFE" fashion!! With the Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram and the Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram you can be sure you'll be safe upon your magical journey; (an issue that's overlooked in most occult literature).

The book comprises of over four hundred page's "so reading will take some time," if reading is all you intend to do? For myself, about 11 days was needed to complete the book (just reading, no practical), reading for at least five hours daily. "It's no quick breeze through!" So, if you wish to become a productive Ceremonial Kabbalistic Magician, depending on your current knowledge, then, a few months of practical work is needed "at least!"

Modern Magick has an excellent section on Talismanic magick (the only section pertaining unto the performing of real magick), bringing to light the difference between low Talismanic magick and high talismanic magick.
Influenced by Crowley, Kaballah and the Golden Dawn order, along with references from the key of Solomon among other sources, this book makes interesting reading.
Credit due to Mr Kraig for his enlightening aspect regarding "NO" spirit will be bought to visible "physical" appearance in the "triangle of art." which, Mr Mathers in "The Key Of Solomon" advocates without due diligence to educate the reader otherwise. Thanks Mr Kraig... (Evocation, seer, in the mirror. "Okay, I got it").

Sex magick, "oh boy," totally not my cup of tea.

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.

Finally! This book alone is worth the dozen or so hefty magickal classics written by the 'greats'.
Why?
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!
