THE BOOK IS A TREASURE. THE MAN - A NATIONAL RESOURCE!,
By A Customer
This review is from: My Life With The Spirits: The Adventures of a Modern Magician: A Magical Autobiography (Paperback)
Lon Milo DuQuette's MY LIFE WITH THE SPIRITS is certainly a remarkable book in several ways: first it is an autobiographical account from that rarest and strangest of humans, a real, live wizard. Second: it is written in such an accessible and friendly style that anyone can enjoy it, and learn from it. Third: Lon does not distort the technical and philosophical requirements of his Art to please a credulous public, nor does he seek to overawe us with his mastery of the subject. Actually I think this book could be very successful in the main-stream spiritual book market (Celestine Prophecy, etc.) if it can break out of its Ceremonial Magick genre confines. It deserves to be widely read as the finest testament yet written on what it is really like to be a Western magician in modern urban America. This is certainly as important as knowing what it is like to be a shaman in a South American Jungle (and we never get that firsthand). This book is a treasure, and the man who wrote it (and lived it) is a National Resource.
