I found this book refreshing simply because the author did not appear to be pushing or selling one particular tradition, approach or magico-philosophy. It is the clear the author is a genuine practising magician, because much of the material is original. He also gives advice on the pitfalls that can occur on the path, and the imbalanced personalities on might meet. He gives good advice on level headed magical practice without falling into any kind of Dogma.
I would recommend it to any beginner, and in addition make the point
that you could do a lot worse for your money.
