5.0 out of 5 stars The Clarity of Crystal, 7 Oct 2003
This review is from: Pendulum Magic for Beginners: Power to Achieve All Goals (For Beginners (Llewellyn's)) (Paperback)
'Pendulum Magic for Beginners: Power to Achieve All Goals' is a compelling and perceptive book. Its 'ring of truth' is established through Richard Webster's lucidity of thought, simplicity of expression and conviction. I seem to recall listening to a programme on BBC1, in which Webster, the consummate communicator, clearly explained his reasons for producing this masterpiece:
'I wrote 'Pendulum Magic for Beginners' for three reasons. The first was to elucidate, in an abstruse colloquiality, the inherent dynamism of mystical exposition in a post-anti-intellectual epoch while simultaneously pre-empting myriad polarities arising from the tentativation of unscholarly ignorance predicated upon, yet not essentially inimical to, the clarity of confluence.
'The second reason for publishing was to extract from the inexplicable a discourse on deliniation between fact as fiction and fiction as didacticism, albeit well-intended, and to then distil that discourse till potency of purpose became integral to procedural rectitude without the attendant self-proclamation of justified revelation.
'The third reason was to communicate clearly and effectively.'
Such was the effect of this book that I no longer feel I need to read any others on the subject of pendulum magic.

This review has blatantly been written by the author! I'm put off buying this book now if the author feels he has to 'big himself up'.
