5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book On The Subject 24 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Colin Wilson's epic tome "The Occult" is justifiably named "The ultimate book for those who would walk with the Gods".
Spanning 795 riveting pages, Mr Wilson's in-depth study of a subject that is often given scant regard is the ideal primer for those who would make an investigation into the shadowy world of secrets.
Covering a time span that reaches from prehistory to modern day witches' covens, Wilson introduces the reader to hundreds of pieces of information that make the book an unrivalled encyclopaedia of the forbidden arts.
Don't buy this book if you are seeking initiation - buy this book only if you want to make serious inroads into the world of wicca, telepathy, shamanism and so on.
The Occult is a journey full of enlightenment, wide-ranging, full of surprises, strange meetings and stranger happenings.
An ideal accompaniment to his "Mysteries", The Occult is a must for every student of mankind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, Informative, Well Written..But............ 25 Aug 2004
By Hans Castorp - Published on
Very Gullible!.In this book, one of Mr. Wilson's most accessible, we learn of witches, ghosts, magic and spells, demons, offbeat cults, and a lot more for much of recorded history. Very entertaining, and makes a great Halloween gift, but the only problem is that Mr. wilson, despite his great intellect and writing skills, seems to fall for about every humdrum and humbug rumor about his subject without subjecting it to serious, objective evaluation. Myriad cases are described throughout this excellent and entertaining book, but perhaps the best is the Flying, Levitating St. Joseph, in which the author simply accepts all supposed witnesses from nearly 400 years ago with not a shred of skepticism. Other similar cases abound. So read this book with at least a minimal sense of rational doubt!
