5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and cutting concisely to the point 5 April 2003
After having read many a book on topics related to personal development I found this particular gem by Regardie a particularly refreshing experience. A very short book, especially when compared to some of Regardie's more well known books, such as those describing the rituals of the Golden Dawn.
Nevertheless, its brevity actually remains its primary strength. Outlined in it, Regardie details what he regards as the most important and effective exercises one can undertake to develop oneself and seek, (and hopefully obtain), some kind of enlightenment.
Unlike many other similar books on the same topic, Regardie provides his recommendations with the minimum of fuss or frills. Readers of Crowley's 'Book Four' will appreciate the relative simplicity and straight-talking nature of the One Year Manual.
Think of this book, perhaps, as the very best essence of personal/spiritual development literature distilled into twelve exercises. Although I read this book many years ago originally, I still carry out some of the exercises detailed therein. Upon first encountering it I initially reacted by wishing that I had read this book first, before the dozens of encyclopedic texts I had tackled previously!
Having not had the ability to discern the wheat from the chaff when such books originally piqued my interest I have made up for this by often purchasing this book for friends when they express an interest in the topic. I say in all earnestness that if you have a fairly serious interest in finding out more about personal/spiritual development, reading this book will save you a lot of time.
Many books on these topics unfortunately steal the limelight because of the massive funding poured into advertising them. Gloss and advertising wins over solid content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical instruction for spiritual growth 8 May 2008
This book contains a progressive series of techniques for disciplining and strengthening one's mind, leading to more advanced spiritual practices, with a view to bringing about personal improvement and change. I have not yet gone through all of the practices, but the earlier ones introduce meditation techniques, and then lead to more involved practices. The spiritual benefits of these practices can be tremendous, whether or not one completes the whole series.

Which brings me to another point - as Regardie himself acknowledges, 'one year' is ambitious. One can certainly expect to spend longer than a month on many of the exercises, unless already well-versed in meditation techniques. This should not dissuade anyone - a year spent doing just the first exercise twice a day would be a year well spent, in my view.

The book can be considered as a stepping stone to more advanced practices in other books. However, the book by itself provides the opportunity for radical self-change and one need not progress any further than the twelve steps contained within. In fact, one need not proceed through the whole book to achieve some very significant progress; carrying out only the first exercise for a few months is tremendously beneficial to one not already engaged in meditation practices.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who feels that they could benefit from instilling some discipline in their mind, whether or not they wish to progress to any of Regardie's other, more sophisticated texts. It is rare to find such a straightfoward and effective text in the often 'mystifying' genre of personal growth.

4.0 out of 5 stars the bliss of perfect sleep 13 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At the point of submitting this review I have practiced two processes and read four of the chapters. For me the benefit to date has been in engaging in the relaxation techniques, where I have dropped off to sleep before each of the half hour session's has completed; the best nights sleep's I have had in years. Whether this leads to something spiritual or not I cannot say, being only one month into the process. An interesting read and an insight into some aspects of the psyche.

Happy to recommend the book, but it is not conventional in its outlook and has some pagan links.
