5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Crowleyanity.
This is the infamous book which was dictated to Aleister Crowley by the Praetor-Human entity, Aiwass, in Cairo in April 1904, revealing the coming of the New Aeon of Horus, with Aleister as its Prophet. One of its main messages, "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole Of The Law", must rank as the most misunderstood, misappropriated and misinterpreted dictums in the history...

3.0 out of 5 stars O.K.
Helions does not have this book on its "must get" list but would suggest giving it a read through if you are interested in Thelema and/or a major Crowley fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars the way of the law., 4 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
The book of the law is a book that will have littel meaning to most people. Ocullt people will try to understand that which is written but no one will really understand what is said, the main problem is that the study of the book is forbiden. the book states that you such distory the book. the book is in the form of a pome with numbered lines, also typeing or speaking about the book of the law is forbiden so typeing this review can be bad for your well being, or so they say. This book was dictatied to crowley by the god aiwass and if your in to that kind of thing then this book is for you, but remember not to take crowley or yourself to serious. Do what thow will this is the hole of the law. Email to spack to me about Crowley. Okay amado.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever Crowley.., 26 Oct 2013
I'm sure that if Crowley could read some of the reviews on here...he would laugh and laugh! Language within language...the ancient teachings of All are hidden within...beyond beautiful.

This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
A great Crowley book. Ideal if you're just getting into Occult writing, it expresses some interesting ideas and allows for a lot of interpretation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic imagery and prose., 15 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
While I find this work to be great reading due to it's fantastic imagery, I find it to be just that and nothing more.
As a former Thelemite, I realize that Liber Al(Book of the Law) is considered to be a holy book in the same way that Christians regard the Bible. I don't mean to step on toes, but the story that Liber Al was dictated to Crowley by his holy guardian angel 'Aiwass' over a 3 day period is completely unbelieveable, and makes for an interesting story at best. No, for me, Liber Al is merely good reading for those who enjoy their entertainment real horrorshow in both theme and humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law., 13 May 2001
By 
adam@new-tech.fsnet.co.uk (The Wescountry, Great Britain) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
"Who calls us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but close into the word. For there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." AL 1.40
'The Book of the Law' is the principal work of one of today's fastest growing magical scenes. Crowley unreservedly declared it his most important work. I personally rate it very highly. However it is forbidden to study it. To be honest the knowledge it contains profits not the body nor the mind - but it does something... Instantaneous connection with certain discarnate intelligences perhaps? For such a small work 'The Book of the Law' seems to say a great deal. It is about four years since I first encountered it and I do not think myself even close to decent comprehension. This is the Grand Prophecy from the Prophet of the New Aeon....
Love is the law, love under will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paper shattering the fetters of humanity., 28 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. 93! What else can be said about this Book. It contains the single Law that can allow every man, woman, and child to achieve their True Will. The book of the ages, or at least the Third Aeon. I've been in awe of Crowley (his Magickal and spiritual works; his personal habits and predjudices are repellent) since my first reading of this book about a year and a half ago. FANTASTIC! Love is the Law, Love under Will.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nonsense, 19 April 2012
By 
I thought this was utter nonsense (it's not really worthy of a review).
Unless this was written as a joke, the author seems to me to be an immature, childish, idiot trying to write something that flys in the face, more or less, to the message the bible has.
Ofcourse pretentious idiots that can't think for themselves will probably try and tell me I just didn't understand it or even don't have the intelligence to understand it. And they may be right about the first part, I don't think I did totally understand what it said as it is written in ye olde English (when the book was written in 1904). I think i'm reasonably intelligent, English is my first language and I did quite well with English at school, so if I can't understand it, then my guess is a hell of alot of people might have the same problem. The bible is an extremely old book - hence when it was translated in the 17th centuary it was translated into the language of the time in England, e.g ye olde English. This book was was written in 1904, why coundn't he have written it in the language of that time? He was pretentious thats why, and very immature. No doubt rebelling against his strict Quaker upbringing where his family never celebrated Christmas - thats why there is all this talk of feasts, thats if he is being literal - but again, if you want people to understand the message in your book, make your meaning clearer, same goes for the bible (though it has years of being translated into different languages, being repeatedly hand copied and being many centuaries old as an excuse to a degree).

On the plus side it's a short book so perhaps you won't feel too cheated out of your precious time by reading it. I didn't like it though - if you told me it was written by a geeky 13 year old i'd have believed you . . . ;)

1.0 out of 5 stars Perfect edition, 11 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This is a very good edition of the Book of the Law. It gives a compact description of Thelema and it's principles. This is absolutely a must have for anybody who sees the importance of this law of liberty. This is, I think, the most beautiful copy of the Book of the Law I have seen in years, and all for a very reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars The new Aeon is here., 27 Dec 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Book of the Law (Paperback)
This is a profound document received by the prophet, Aleister Crowley, in 1904. It tells of the new Aeon of Horus and His Law, which is: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." "Love is the Law, love under will." "There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt." It is a true guide to discovering Light, Life, Love, and Liberty. Within its pages holds the keys to philosophy, government, and individual enlightenment. Its mysteries are to be sought only by the individual, with the writings of the Master Therion as a possible guide. "Every man and every woman is a star."
